Dear Dr Braverman

I am a frozen embryo transfer patient who has ET problems. With 12mg of progynova and Viagra (50mg) used as a pessary, I cannot go above 6.5mm. I would be very, very grateful if you could advise me [and my Dr] on the use of Neupogen for this?

I understand there are 2 washes but the days for an FET patient and the amounts worry me a bit. would you recommend Day 8 and 10?

With regard to the amounts, I see 300 units (?) ...Over here, the oncology depts sell a vial of 3 units. Perhaps there may be a difference in unit size? As such, how many ml's are actually used?

Once again, thank you for helping so many women. Bless!

yes day 8 and 10 are fine. I would use 1cc of normal saline with 300micrograms of the neupogen. Good Lucik.
