Hello, need some advice. I had a tooth issue 3wks back old failed root canal. Went on Keflex for 5 days and stopped day before starting estrogen for donor egg cycle. Tooth issue was chronic infection that apparently can wait to be fixed until after cycle. As they dont want to stir anything up.
However. After talking to my Immune Dr, he has said I should go on Doxycline 100mg daily for 21 days starting 5 days prior to ET.incase I have a tooth flare. I'm concerned, as I have often read ladies being on Doxy, before treatment starts etc, and wonder if there is anyone out there who has been on Doxy prior and after ET? I think I'm being prescribed it as a precaution.
I have also spoken to a pharmacist who said that antibiotics can affect the absorption of estrogen. My protocol is such that on day of donor EC, when I introduce Progesterone, I drop my estrogen from 50mcg ethinylestradiol to 30mcg. (I'm having overseas donor cycle, but being monitored by local IVF Dr, local believes in mimicking more of a natural cycle, even thou its medicated, hence drops estrogen, when introducing progesteone.
My other question is when I introduce Progesterone, this time my immune Dr want me on 400mg pessaries 3 time day (=1200), before I have been on 200mg x 3 times day (=600). Is it ok to start on such a high dose of progesterone?
Sorry for all the questions just need some advice. I know all Dr's tweet all protocols depending on individual, but just wanted to hear what other ladies have done. Just to add, I'm in my late 40's, on a medicated donor cycle.
thank you so much.
