I had 4 induced abortions. No complications, menstrual is normal have had 3 miscarriages after. Did I mess up my endometrial lining? & is that fixable

I had 4 induced abortions. No complications, menstrual is normal have had 3 miscarriages after. Did I mess up my endometrial lining? & is that fixable

No: It isn't the endometrium that is the source of the repeated miscarriages. It is either a genetic issue or cervical incompetence. The cervix may be opening too soon in the 2nd trimester and may need to have a suture placed (cerclage).Genetic issues can be tested at the time of the miscarriage with the products of conception or later with blood testing (TORCH titer). ...Read more

Endometrial lining was 1mm 7 days post ovulation- periods are very light, 2 miscarriages, HSG shows abnormal uterine shape- could this be asherman's?

Endometrial lining was 1mm 7 days post ovulation- periods are very light, 2 miscarriages, HSG shows abnormal uterine shape- could this be asherman's?

Yes, Asherman's: Asherman's syndrome is adhesions of the uterus. The adhesions form usually after a procedure like a D&C for miscarriage. Adhesions are areas where there is no normal endometrial tissue cover that will grow to allow for pregnancy implantation or periods. Treating this can be difficult and take time to heal. I recommend you seek care with a reproductive endocrinologist. ...Read more

Fertility testing: Considering undergoing fertility testing if you have been trying for more than 12 moths without success. Ovulation testing, a semen analysis and an X ray to see if the tubes are open are the usual starting points for testing. Endometrial thickness varies throughout the cycle so may or may not be applicable to your current issue. ...Read more

19 weeks pregnant and been eating microwave popcorn a few times a week. Someone said the lining in the bag could cause miscarriage or damage to baby. Is this true? I never heard this before.

19 weeks pregnant and been eating microwave popcorn a few times a week. Someone said the lining in the bag could cause miscarriage or damage to baby. Is this true? I never heard this before.

Not likely: The main risk is from inhaling diacetyl fumes and most who got sick did so through occupational exposure. Many manufacturers have since removed diacetyl from their microwave popcorn. You can make your own microwave popcorn by putting plain kernels in a clean brown paper lunch bag, fold the top over a few times, and heat on the popcorn setting of your microwave. Add melted butter if you like. ...Read more

At times chlomid can thin the lining if uterus. What are the affects of this side effect? Miscarriage? Failure to implant?

At times chlomid can thin the lining if uterus. What are the affects of this side effect? Miscarriage? Failure to implant?

Implantation defect: Clomid (clomiphene) may cause the endometrial lining to not grow sufficiently to allow for implantation of an embryo. Checking the lining of the endometrium before ovulation can show if this might be an issue. Estrogen can be added 4 days after ovulation to improve the lining in some cases. ...Read more

See an REI: I would recommend you see an rei (fertility specialist) for 2 reasons. One, you should be carefully evaluated for asherman's syndrome (thin uterine lining) which is sometime seen in women after a d&c. Secondly, they can address the issue of recurrent miscarriages. ...Read more

I think I had a miscarriage but I want to know the difference between a gestation sac after 3 week pregnancy or a uterus lining during a period.

I think I had a miscarriage but I want to know the difference between a gestation sac after 3 week pregnancy or a uterus lining during a period.

See your dr: If its only been a little bit of time since you had bleeding that was either a miscarriage or a period, the doctor can check a test to see if you are still making pregnancy hormones (which you may be if it was a miscarriage). If you don't want to be pregnant, you should talk with your dr about birth control choices. If you do want to be pregnant, plan ahead, start prenatal vitamins, and be health. ...Read more

What do blood clots mean during menstruation? I have a heavy flow, and at one point in time it was said I had a miscarriage due to uterus lining detaching...

Menorrhagia: Heavy bleeding, or menorrhagia can be due to a variety of reasons. Most common is hormonal. Endometriosis can be a factor. In addition, thyroid, pituitary glands, as well as weight (too thin/heavy), rarely vonwillebrand syndrome. Not usual in someone at 19, a lesion such as a polyp or fibroid can cause as well. Clots just mean excess blood. May want to consider workup with gynecologist? ...Read more

She needs an extensi: Extensive evaluation, could be many causes she should see an infertility specialist, hormones, blood antibodies, chromosomes, hysteroscopy are some of the tests that need to be done, if she gets pregnant again without determining a cause she has an extremely high chance to have another one, if she gets pregnant she may need to be on meds like baby asa, heaprin, progestins etc depending on the cau. ...Read more

How/why does a polyp keep your endometrial lining from shedding?

How/why does a polyp keep your endometrial lining from shedding?

Blockage: A polyp sits atop the endometrial and usually partially made of endometrial material. When the endo lining sheds, the part under the polyp cannot shed as the polyp blocks its. Think of rain falling on a field with a huge thick tree setting in the middle. The rain cannot really get to the ground under the tree as it is blocked by the tree; sample principle with the polyp. ...Read more

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Not really: The paragard iud is hormone free. It works by creating a toxic environment for sperm preventing fertilization. Because it is hormone free it has no real effect on the endometrial lining. It does not thin it out like Mirena (levonorgestrel) but also does not thicken it either. ...Read more

Endometrial lining 11.88. 26yr female hx mod endometriosis. Lining on us shaped like an arrow with a tale is this normal? Feel preg nothing on ultras

Normal: The shape you describe is most likely normal but obviously cannot say with any certainty without seeing the images. As for "feeling pregnant", have you taken a pregnancy test? A urine pregnancy test is far more accurate at diagnosing early pregnancy than an ultrasound. In a woman of childbearing age at the end of her cycle an endometrial thickness of 7-16mm is considered normal, btw. ...Read more

Post menopausal had D&C for 9mm thick endometrial lining. No malignancy. Is it very likely that the D&C will prevent lining from getting thick again?

Maybe not: If, at age 61 you have a innate or exogenous (outside0 source off unopposed estrogen, then the endometrium may grow again. If you are taking HRT (hormone replacement therapy) make sure that progesterone is added to the regimen to avoid estrogen only endometrium stimulation. ...Read more

Dr could only get scant sample of endometrial lining for biopsy. Had problem getting through cervix because curved. Extremely painful. Is this common?

Dr could only get scant sample of endometrial lining for biopsy. Had problem getting through cervix because curved. Extremely painful. Is this common?

Cervical stenosis: It is very common for the gynecologist to have difficulty inserting a biopsy instrument through the cervix when a patient is in menopause. This is called cervical stenosis. If the doctor could get the instrument into the uterine cavity and only retrieved scant tissue, that would imply that the lining of the uterus is atrophic or thin. If there is any question, you should have an ultrasound. ...Read more
