Causes Of Thin Uterine Lining
Thin lining: At certain times of your cycle the lining is thin - immediately after your period. Estrogen thickens/ grows the uterine lining. A low amount of estrogen production will result in a thin lining. The most common thing that causes a thin lining in young women is hormonal contraceptives (pills, depo, mirena, (levonorgestrel) NuvaRing ).

Dr. Is it possible that high doses of sythetic progestin for 2 months did not thin out my uterine lining but caused it to pass? (2cm long, 1.5cm thick)
Excess estrogen: Your ovaries make estrogen every month and stimulate growth in the uterine lining. After ovulation they make Progesterone that matures the lining and prepares it for pregnancy.

Stop clomid (clomiphene): Clomid (clomiphene) is an anti-estrogen that it works by blocking the estrogen receptors. Estrogen is needed to turn on Progesterone receptors in the uterus which eventually builds up the uterine lining.

10-14 days: It does depend on the situation. But usually daily use for 10-14 days is long enough to start noticing some effects. But this really depends on the reason for the thick lining.

So it may take longer. ...Read more
