I am going to be starting meds my 3rd FET (6th IVF) next week but I wanted to get some imput on what other protocols have looked like. I am on a estrogen priming protocol so looking for others who have been on this as well but all imput is very much appreciated!
With my last 2 FETs I was told to stop my BCPs then on CD3 to start my patches, then of course to change them out every 2.5 days. K no prob.
Well this time by doc threw me for a total loop. He told me to stop my BCPs and on the 2nd day of BLEEDING to then start the patches?!?! WHAT?? Im totally confused. It normally takes me 3-4 days AFTER stopping my BCPs to start bleeding but from all 5 of my previous IVFs I was told that the day after stopping BCPs is CD1. So if my last BCP was yesterday, tomorrow would be CD1 and normally I would start my patches on CD3 being Sunday. But this time he wants me to wait till the 2nd day of bleeding before starting and that would put me at like CD5 or CD6 (depending on when AF arrives) and that just seems really late in the cycle to be starting the patches. Im totally confused and unfortunately I cant reach him or the nurse until Monday to clarify. The problem is, is that ive had accidentally mishaps in the past with my docs doing my med schedule and starting me to late so Im a tad bit worried that might have happened again, but maybe this is just something new, IDK.
Has anyone starting their patches this late into a cycle? or do you normally start around CD3?
