I'm currently in the process of my first FET. I've been on the BCPs for about 2.5 weeks now. On Tuesday, I start my Lupron shots. I discontinue the BCPs on 8/6. When I start a period, I go in for u/s and bloodwork and start estrogen patches. About 10 days later, they'll start checking my blood and doing u/s again to see how my lining is progressing. Then we'll do the transfer. I have to do medrol and antibiotics for 6 days around the time of the transfer. I'll stay on the estrogen until the hcg test. I'll also be on progesterone from the time of the transfer until I'm about 10-11 weeks pg or so. We have 3 5-day blastocysts, so we really hope that at least one of them thaws well and sticks. The protocol would be different if you have normal cycles on your own (like if the dx is male factor or endometriosis), because in those cases frequently they'll do a natural cycle without most of the drugs.
