Until which week did you stay on progestrone and estrace?

I was only able to see the satalite office doctor not my actual doctor. He didnt mention my meds at all. So as I was leaving I asked if I continue taking and for how long he said ya just stay on. Ok well I get home and realize i have no repeats left so my meds will run out at 9 weeks but they dont want me to come back until 11 weeks.

What week did your doctor take you off?

Me:40  DH: 42


PCOS, one blocked tube.

Currently in IVF cycle

Hi babybabydust, 


Was your transfer fresh or frozen? I don't know why it makes a difference, but at my clinic they keep you on estrogen and progesterone until 9 weeks for a fresh transfer and 11 weeks for a FET.


Congrats on your pregnancy!

I was to stop my progesterone once I had my first beta, I’ve had it checked a few times since to make sure and my levels have been good. I’m just over 6 weeks. I think it depends on your clinic and your diagnosis maybe?

12 weeks for me for progesterone (with both pregnancies which were four years apart-so nothing changed with protocol at my clinic). Estrace only for 12 weeks on first one and no estrace on second one. First was fresh and second was frozen
