    Thanks, everyone, for your replies, I should also have made it clear that I'm using donor eggs in case that makes a difference...?! Anyway, I do feel somewhat reassured. IM has just emailed to say that they don't worry too much about thickness (as long as over 5mm), but no maximum, and that they've seen thicker Day 7 linings than mine so not to worry. Will also ask Ruth as well for her experience. It is just that I was sooo pleased to get a nice thick lining and then when I realised that some people think that there is such a thing as a 'too thick' lining, I felt a bit deflated! But am being positive and generally am still pleased, and visualising a nice cosy nest growing!
    Love and good wishes to you all at whatever stage, and thanks for your advice and wisdom -  what would we do without FF?! :)

    Just a quick update in case it is helpful to anyone else, I heard back from Ruth too and she said she had never heard of a lining which was too thick so not to worry. Also today, had a call from IM saying ET is next Tuesday so I fly out on Monday (patch day 12) so I'm not going to grow the lining for too much longer now anyway - was a relief as had not expected ET till at least next Friday/Saturday.
    Hope this reassures anyone else reading who has the same query,
    lots of love Sally x

    Dear Sally
    Just to let you Know that your question has really helped me. One of my Dx is hyperplasia (thickness) of the uterine wall , measures vary between 19mm-22mm. Saw my Dr today to determine next Tx step (1 failed stimulation :() so spent a lot of time talking about uterine wall measures.
    She said that anything < 2mm no chance of implantation and > 20 mm would reduce chances of implantation but still possible. Am going down the IUI route. By the way I live in France and having Tx here. Was also interested in the info about Belgium. Best wishes for next week.

    Good luck you only need worry really when your lining is too thin, I never get much thicker than 8mm and thats day of transfer, so  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ and let them be sticky ones you bring home :)

    Love

    Looking for clinic that does tests/scans in London
    « Reply #36 on: 21/01/07, 16:57 »
    Hi!  I was hoping that someone might be able to help me....

    I'm considering going abroad for donor egg ivf and have an appointment at IM Barcelona in April.  They have asked me to get a load of tests done ahead of my appointment, my current clinic and GP won't do them for me - so I wondered if anyone can recommend a place in central London.  Also somewhere that will do the scans etc that I need before ET.

    Any help and advice would be great.

    Thanks

    Some UK clinics are charging a £1000 for scans if you go abroad for treatment.

    Make sure that you get all costs up front.
