Hi Dr. Liu,

I had my frozen embryo transfer on Tuesday morning. It is now Thursday and I have a question. My lining was .9 prior to transfer at which time I had my HCG shot and started progesterone suppositories twice a day. I was given Puregon and Luveris to thicken the lining as my previous attempts with just estrace were only getting my lining to .7 but did not retrieve any eggs as I had embryos left from a prior transfer. I was advised to start taking 1mcg of estrace twice a day starting 5 days before the transfer (two days after the HCG shot) and to continue unitl the results of the transfer. I am taking so many medications (herbs and vitamins) that I cannot recall if I took two estrace pills this evening (day three after the transfer) which would mean that I took 3 mcg in total today instead of the prescribed 2mch. Would that be detrimental to the outcome of my transfer and make the embryos less likely to implant?

Thank you in advance for your time and response...
