My husband and I met with Dr. Nackley after our biochemical pregnancy and decided to proceed with an FET. I was surprised to learn that an FET calender is 1.5 months. I thought it would be the same as an IVF cycle, about 3 weeks. I have been on Lupron and Estrace and it's been the same as it was with my IVF cycle. I have a huge needle phobia and have been counting the days until I needed to start IM progesterone. Last night was my first progesterone injection. I expected excruciating pain. I followed the online instruction video and the injection was no worse than any others. The progesterone stings a little, but not as bad as I thought it would. The nurse recommended that after I give myself the injection, I move around for about 20 minutes to help the oil disperse through the muscle. The injection site feels a little bruised, but I've had no other reaction. I never thought I would be able to do something like this. Maybe it's beginners luck, but I feel very optimistic.
