Just wondering if Dexamethesone is a safe drug to use up until the pregnancy test during a FET (1mg, orally daily).
The reason I'm asking is with my last successful FET we used Dex (with Dr Hudson at VFC). However with this next protocol my clinic is now recommending that we don't use it in light of the possible risk of birth defects (now with VFC newly owned by PCRM). I was doing some research online however it seems VERY common to use in IVF to reduce inflammation and improve live birth rates.
Thoughts? What's the risk of birth defects? And what type of birth defects? Or just your personal experience in using DEx would be appreciated.
OR have any one you gotten pregnant without the use of Dex (and you have advanced endo, 35+, poor ovarian reserve).
