Has anyone tried taking benadryl or baby aspirin before their transfer? Were you successful? How long before FET to start taking?

I don't think I did aspirin but my clinic did have me take a single steroid pill.

 

We also had "marital relations" the day before and we got a BFP from our first FET

Baby aspirin is a common protocol for FETs but I don't remember at what point you start it.

Baby aspirin (or daily low dose - 81mg) is part of the protocol at my clinic for FETs. You start taking it the day you start your estrace, and stop taking it whenever you stop taking the meds (so, if you get a BFP you take it all the way to week 9 or 10, otherwise stop when you get your BFN).

DH: 43

Im at same clinic as YaenaSk (so same protocol).
For me began taking baby aspirin on cycle day 1 (first day of menstrual cycle) along with estrogen. Once pregnant I was told to continue taking it until end of first trimester when I would stop taking other meds (progesterone and estrogen).
Havent heard of taking Benadryl as apart of a protocol - but I struggle with allergies and was using antihistamines throughout my FET, including Benadryl, but this was unrelated to my FET meds
