Also, why do you start Day 1 if you are sloughing off the old lining? Is it starting to grow the lining underneath? Didn't quite understand that...I would think you would start at the tail end of the period...

I took 1 mg estrace 2x's day starting on cycle day 1. Increased to 2 mg estrace twice a day on day 6. increased again to 3 mg three times a day on days 10-14. On day 14 lining check and lining was good so decreased to 2 mg twice a day thru transfer and beta and hopefully beyond if I get a BFP.

As soon as monitoring b/w and u/s comes back OK I am told to start estrogen. I don't like to wait long because I don't want ovaries to start brewing follicles on their own, the estrogen (pills or patches) should keep ovaries suppressed. It won't affect the shedding of your old lining.
