I can't seem to recall very well my previous FET so I'm hoping some of you can chime in. I'm about to start my FET protocol in two weeks, which includes 4mg of Estrace twice a day starting on CD#2.

 

Specifically I'm wondering if any of you have experienced Estrace reducing your flow and length of your period at the start of your FET protocol.

 

Thanks so much!

I am moving towards FET soon too and my protocol seems different. . . a higher dose of estrace from the start. . . I am with a new clinic though. . .

Yes, I tend to have a shorter and lighter flow on estrace.  At my last FET my period was less than half of what it should be and lasted just 2 days.  Normal for me is 5 days.  My clinic wasn't worried about it and I had success, so it can't have impacted my cycle too badly.

My FET protocol was also different.  I started 2mg of Estrace 3x per day from day 1 of my cycle, then 5 days before transfer they moved it to 2x per day.

 

I never noticed a reduction in flow or length of my cycle.

I hope I experience the same as you! I'm due to get my period while in the middle of our holiday and I'd love to have my period be lighter and shorter.
