Fet and steroids advice please
« on: 28/06/20, 21:48 »
Hello
I  currently in the middle of my frozen cycle with the plan to transfer on Friday, I have in the past tested positive for unk cells so my last cycle I cycled using steroids it was a fresh cycle so I started 20mg of prednisolone on ec day this time day 10 as itís a frozen cycle which Is similar timing but my consultant has me on 25mg can I ask those who have had fet with steroids what was your dosage abd the day you started,, I trust my consultant I just over think and worry about everything  ^idiot^

Thanks
Kirsty

    Hi! Can I just ask if youíre cycling in the UK? As I though the HFEA had banned steroids / intralipids until a later date due to the pandemic? Iím hoping Iím wrong as want to get on with the cycle!!!!

    Hello baby bird
    I had already picked up my prescription pre lockdown so had the medicine to take, I was told had I of gotten the prescription now then I wouldnít of been able to have steroids
    Probably not the answer you want ,, I think some  clinics are allowing them if absolutely necessary

    I think 25mg is a relatively common dose, I was on either 20 or 25 with Panda (I canít remember which now but itís all in my diary on here) xxx

    It is possible, yes - and I hesitate about saying that as I don't want to stress you out! - can you ask your clinic about it? I'm sure 25g is fine, but I'd probably just ask them, in your shoes, to save yourself the worry. It's all stressful enough without worrying about stuff the clinic could reassure you about. x

    I wouldn't have *thought* that an extra 5mg would cause problems, but hopefully your clinic will be able to be totally reassuring, and that'll be one less thing to worry about. Best of luck. xx
