high estrogen level before FET

Dear Dr Braverman,
I am preparing for a FET with a CCS normal blastocyst. Due to my thin lining of 6.7 after 14 days on estrogen patches, 1 vaginal estrace, baby aspirin, and lupron, I have been told to continue on the same protocol for another 7 days with the addition of 2 vaginal estrace per day. My E2 measured at 2600 at my 14 day check.

I am of Indian descent. I read studies which say that high estrogen is a negative indicator for implantation (in fresh cycles) for those of Indian descent. I am concerned that my high E2 levels are going to hurt my changes for a successful FET as I don't understand why high E2 wouldn't be a problem in FETs if it is a problem in fresh cycles.

I am very interested to hear your opinion on whether my high estrogen level will lower my chances of success in a frozen transfer.
Thank you.

Dr. Braverman

I do not beleive this is a great issue under 3,000 . Over this level the lieterature is still uncertain but I would try to avoid it. Certainly in those with immune issues it may be worse.
