If all attempts to address this fail, you may resort to working with a gestational carrier. ...Read more

Can you conceive if you have breakthrough bleeding and a thin uterine lining. The dr did several tests and found nothing abnormal.

Can you conceive if you have breakthrough bleeding and a thin uterine lining. The dr did several tests and found nothing abnormal.

If you are ovulating: As long as you are ovulating, and having intercourse during the time of ovulation, then yes you can conceive. The thickness of the lining of the uterus will vary during the cycle (right after menses, it is usually thinner; gets thicker right before menses). It is hard to say whether or not you are ovulating based on the information available. If not getting regular menses then prob not ovulating. ...Read more

My bleeding profile with Nexplanon was near constant at 5+ months of use. Would this indicate my uterine lining is on the thin side or thick side?

Neither: It's just one of the problems that come with that type of birth control. It doesn't indicate much about the status of your endometrium. But you should go get checked by an MD (not a nurse practitioner) to make sure you're not anemic from that much bleeding. ...Read more

What to do if uterine lining is thin due to Clomid (clomiphene) intake?

What to do if uterine lining is thin due to Clomid (clomiphene) intake?

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. If Clomid (clomiphene) is interfering with this, than you should discontinue Clomid (clomiphene) and switch to femara, which may not cause this, and/or injectable medications which will definitely not alter your uterine lining. ...Read more

How long does it take to thin uterine lining on prometrium (micronized progesterone)?

How long does it take to thin uterine lining on prometrium (micronized progesterone)?

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. For example, women who are very heavy have conversion of precursor androgens into estrogen that takes place in their fat cells. This excess estrogen then continues to stimulate the uterine lining. So it may take longer. ...Read more
