    thanks A for the wishes. Sunshine your input is really appreciated. i went to the hospital on the first day and they did tape my toes together. the pain is not severe anymore but still there if i step on my toes or try to walk properly. today is the 5th day and i dont have any swelling or anything. how will i tell if i have a fracture? the doc said he wanted xrays but my ob said no freaking way... so i dont know how to proceed. i will go back next week to see what they have to say.

    Hmm, I'd vote don't do xray... pretty sure if it was broken it would be swollen, at least if badly broken... my toes are still swollen 2 months later (orthopedic surgeon claims "this is normal" - I did not need surgery). Also the taping will make it hurt more, it's restricting movement (good thing) but the toes are trying to move their natural way against the restriction. Give yourself a break from the tape every so often. I couldn't tape first week, hurt too much.

    thank you for sharing your experience with me Sunshine. I am starting to believe that my toe is not broken just badly injured. i taped it myself the first day and then the doctor did a better job. it was painful but still manageable. i didnt even have to take any pain meds which is good. we will see how it goes!!

Has anyone used stims to make your lining better for a FET. MY RE wants to do it next cycle

    Do a search in the forums as I know this has been covered.

    My dr also suggested it as my lining is never stellar with just estrace but I am opting for a natural FET as my lining seems to be great on its own. Just makes it a little harder to plan for the FET as my cycles aren't regular. I believe they do a low dose stims. Hopefully it works out for you!

    This might be too late... but yes, stims (mild superovulation) during natural cycle (without estrace until after trigger) got my lining thick and it worked. Good luck!

    I think on the Lupron protocol they normally grow pretty evenly as far as i know. Thank you
