Dr Braverman, I am your patient. Do you recommend to do hcg shots(1000 units 3 times every other day) in the luteal phase to trick the body to think that it is pregnant? It can boost estrogen and progesterone. I am also doing neupogen and IVIG and doing a natural FET.

If you are doing a natural FET you dont need the HCG. besides it will contaminate your pregnancy test. we use HCG with FET when we do a medicated cycle that has no LH or lupron as both are significant to prepare the endometrium. but in a natural FET you have your own LH surge and that is all you need. You should get progesterone supplementation after the embryos are transferred.
