Hi Stacey, thanks for your advice too. Yeah that’s what I tend to think about my triple stripe, I just never get a clear line, as I’ve had scans during none IVF cycles and it’s the same, there but very subtle, but who knows!My take on it would be that if your progesterone window is out and you have never had any implantation, the odds of it suddenly changing would be slim, so if you were having a transfer, say in Feb you would time it so you would have the biopsy within that 3 mth window, the window I would say is more for the scratch as that’s when you get the benefits of that, in that time period. Also if your going to muck around with the dose of estrogen I would highly suggest doing a mock cycle, you don’t want to be going into a transfer cycle and have a lower dose of estrogen, only to find that your lining isn’t responding and then having to dash around increasing your dose and trying to get your lining up to a good level for transfer, if it were me I wouldn’t be playing around with the dose of estrogen, if what your usually on get you a decent thickness. Some ladies just don’t get a good triple line no matter what, and I’ve seen some that haven’t got one at all still achieve a pregnancy. Triple lined is “ideal” but it’s only one part of the recipe. Maybe having hysteroscop/biopsy/era testing at the same time would be more beneficial as then you can check your window, your lining will be checked out and you would have a “clean out” of the lining, so when you cycle it will be a nice fresh lining growing back. That’s my 2 cents worth.
It’s just trying to fit everything in, it would be great if I could do hysto, ERA at the same time in Zlin however they need to be done at different times in your cycle, I’ve been researching clinics in the UK for possible ERA. It’s also putting me off getting it done in Zlin if it comes back none receptive I’ll have to do it all again, and really don’t want to keep travelling back and forth to Zlin.
I would love to try a natural FET (I’ve never done one) as I know my lining thickens well in a none IVF cycle however I think Zlin won’t recommend this as I know it’s difficult to get timings right when travelling abroad for treatment.
