    Prednisone

    Anyone have this prescribed to them? I am taking it before transfer and continuing on until pg test, or longer, I think...I can't find much about it on here except from people with asthma. I don't have asthma...

    I took Dexamethasone, which is just another form of steroid, for my IVF cycle with SIRM. I think that there are a number of clinics that use steroids.

    Beware - I blame part of my 18lb weight gain during IVF stims on them! I was hungry ALL of the time. I gained more weight during the IVF process than I have so far during 21 1/2 weeks of pregnancy!!!

    I think I took methaprethalzone (sp?) or maybe what bess took, I'm not sure, but I do know that a steroid was a short part of the cycle protocol.

    I took Medrol for from right after retrieval for something like 3 days ( last one was on day of transfer).

    I also have ATAs because I am hypothyroid but CRMI doesn't do much about immune stuff.

    I took Dexamethasone but I cant remember exactly when. I think it was between trigger and ET.
