PROGYNOVA question

Hey everyone! I am preparing my body for my mid-June  egg donor transfer. I will be starting Progynova on the first day of my period, increasing the doses for i think ten days. Has anyone else taken this, and if so, did they get horrible side effects? I believe this medication is to stimulate my Estradiol and to create a thicker lining.(I guess I'll ask more questions when I call my doc on the first day of my period.

I was on Lupron to suppress my system.  The drugs suppress your natural cycle so they can manipulate your body to do what it needs to do- hope that makes sense!  I had a horrible headache about a week into it and I got hot flashes.

Have a great cycle!

I also am preparing for FET, hopefully next week!   I have used donor eggs from a relative who already has two children, my story is quite similar to yours actually.  
My FS has decided that I will be having a Natural Cycle so no drugs....I have my first scan tomorrow and BT to test LH.  I then have to POAS for a number of days to find out the exact date of Ovulation and then they will do the FET 2 days later (all going well)!
I am 47.  I was a bit nervous about this as every embryo is precious! I asked why I wouldn't be on the drugs to thicken the lining etc but apparently this is the best way to go if possible??  I am still getting regular periods. I was told that once I start the drugs if Pregnancy happens then I would have to stay on them for the 1st trimester.  Did you have a choice?  I am still trying to wrap my head around this one...  would be interested to hear from others also.

Good luck with it all!

Well I , too was going to be on a natural cycle because I was using a frozen egg, and with that I was told I didn't need any medications to prepare the lining either. Since, however, my donor has been changed, and I will be using a "fresh egg." I now have to take the drugs without a choice. I'm not really sure why since these drugs aren't affecting my cycle to coincide with my donors. I don't really understand why I now need to take the drugs but before I didn't. Jeeze, every time I am asked questions I am dumbfounded at how much I really don't know, and I feel so stupid. I mean after all, it is happening to me:) I will ask all these questions after I talk to my doctor in the next few days and will get back to you. PS: My FE told me that she does prefer a Natural Cycle, but she  prefers non frozen donor cells more than the former, so that's why she switched on me. Good luck to you, too!

All I can say is there is never a stupid question!  We alll try to be fully informed, but there is just so much going on...  I think that we just about need a degree as a lot of it is very complicated and confusing!   Good luck again! Let me know how you go!
