Hi
I am looking for some advice please.  My womb lining is too thin and I am worried about tx being cancelled again. ^eyes^  I had my first icsi in the summer and got OHSS so no et for me  :'(- was devastated.
Have been waiting to start FET and was due for et on 21st Dec but lining scan said womb lining very thin - dr didnt say how thin.  :( :(
They have increased my dose of progynova, but was just wondering if anyoone had any other suggestions as to what else i could do at home??
Any help greatly appreciated ;D
Thanks,
Pat

I had this same problem for a FET I am going to do on the 22nd, I really thought we were going to cancel because it was taking so long & one can only be on estrogen for so long, & it was already a month!

I use estradiol 2 mg pills, & we'd started with 2/day orally. After 10 days my lining was only @ 3.8, so we switched to 2/day orally + 1/day vaginally. After another week we'd only hit 5mm, so we switched to 1/day oral + 2/day vaginal, & it grew up to 8mm finally -- but after 31 days. So the trick could be just to find what your body responds to. In my case, I need the estrogen as suppositories!

I did 1 other FET, & that time it took 21 days to get to 7 mm doing a similar ramp-up, so the doc should've remembered.

I hope your doc is flexible on the FET date. Unless the lining is otherwise not looking good, you should be able to keep taking pills for longer than the usual time. I am jealous of ladies you can do this really fast, I guess I cannot.

i only have 3 hon  :-\  the 3 that they thawed all cleaved late if at all so i think they are of very poor quality but i have no choice but to use them and its NHS. still i know the next one its just a because i have to TX and nothing will come of it, doubt i will even get to 2WW. dont mind at all as i would rather have no 2ww then one with bad embies that would prob die in a day or 2 if you know what i mean.

i have been cheking up on you chick and i'm please to see you are going again  ;)  hope your well x
