When did you start progesterone Pessaries prior to FET?

Just wondering when you all started taking progesterone Pessaries prior to 5 day blastocyst FET? Also how much did you take? Did the amount increase after transfer?

I did a full 4 days of 400mg cyclogest twice per day then transferred on the 5th day, the dose did not change and I would have remained on the same dose had I got a positive result x

Great thanks for replying. Fingers crossed next time is positive xx

Hiya as aprilmama said you start about a week before FET. I’m on 400mg too. If you get a positive you continue until day 70

Thanks. My Dr does transfer 5 days after ovulation and only starts progesterone Pessaries the day after ovulation so just worried I wouldn't have had enough time on the progesterone before the FET. I've got low progesterone naturally. So just wanted to make sure 3/4 days of progesterone was enough really before FET

Hi there, I had 5 full days of 600mg cyclogest before FET. Dose hasn't changed following transfer x

Eek I'm really beginning to wonder if I'm being given enough time between ovulation and FET on progesterone. Dr says progesterone starts evening after ovulation and fet is five days after ovulation so it's not 5 full days it's more like 3 on progesterone...when do you test?

Are you on a natural cycle? I'm medicated so didn't have ovulation! OTD is 27th but I'm unlikely to last that long x

This will be my first ever transfer/FET so they're going natural since I do ovulate normally albeit inconsistently each month.

Part of me would like to not test until OTD but I know I'd crack too and I think it's good to know when I first get a nap in case it's another chemical as it'll give us more data to work with I guess?

All the best with the dreaded tww xx
