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

Pcos+no ovulation-6 months+long cycles. Took 10mg/7 day dose of provera+cd3 u/s showed 8mm lining. Enometrial biopsy monday. What results to expect?

Pcos+no ovulation-6 months+long cycles. Took 10mg/7 day dose of provera+cd3 u/s showed 8mm lining. Enometrial biopsy monday. What results to expect?

Probably normal: Endometrial biopsy is performed to rule out endometrial hyperplasia (possible precursor to endometrial ca) or endometrial ca, which is increased in women with chronic anovulatory cycles (pcos). It usually takes more than a few years for such endometrial pathology to develop, and use of hormonal contraceptives or regular withdrawal bleeds with Progesterone decrease this risk. ...Read more

Cannot tell: Without knowing when your follicle approaches a mature size on ultrasound it is difficult to tell when you actually ovulated. The endometrium is just not that precise. ...Read more

If you don't ovulate does your uterine lining thicken?

It can: When you don't ovulate, the ovaries may still produce lots of estrogen. Without the Progesterone that comes after ovulation, the lining may grow unchecked and over time lead to hyperplasia and cancer. ...Read more

I am on day 21 of my cycle and my endometrial thickness is 9.4mm. What is the implication of this as regards ovulation?

Unclear: For a women with regular menstrual cycles ovulation would normally occur around day 14. An endometrial thickness of 9.4mm after ovulation would be normal, and encouraging. A better idea about ovulation can be obtained from looking at the ovaries near the time ovulation is happening. ...Read more

Cycle day 10. 2 follicles measure 12 and 14. Lining currently measures 6. Will lining likely to be thick enough for implantation by time I ovulate?

Cycle day 10. 2 follicles measure 12 and 14. Lining currently measures 6. Will lining likely to be thick enough for implantation by time I ovulate?

Already there: We like to see a minimum of 6 mm endometrial thickeningj. Thicker is better tho. And at only day 10 the lining should be even better. Also, the follicles should be 16mm and the 2 you have should grow to that as well.

You are close. ...Read more

Definitely: That is definitely an ovulatory progesterone level. With clomiphene I wouldn't get too hung up on "how many, " it is really only supposed to give you one or two follicles. It improves you chances of conceiving significantly anyway. Drugs such as hMG ("shots") will increase follicle number, but that's a whole 'other approach. Good wishes and good luck. ...Read more

Is a 3 mm endometrial lining on CD 26 of a 27 day cycle normal? We're trying to conceive and the result of the thickness of the lining suprised me.

Abit thin: That is a little thinner than one would expect on CD 26 if you were ovulating. CD 26 is also not a typical day that an Obgyn would assess the endometrial thickness to make some determination about a patients fertility. Not strong conclusions can be drawn from this isolated data point. Each case would need to be analyzed individually ...Read more

Maybe: If you have regular cycles you probably did. You can check a midluteal progesterone to confirm. Your cyst will collapse after ovulation and change to a corpus luteum cyst which has a distinctly different appearance. Day 15 might not have that appearance yet but will show some collapse. ...Read more

Is a 6mm endometrium lining post ovulation considered too thin on day 19 of 28 day cycle? What is the ideal measurement? Ovulate day 14? Can I conceive

Is a 6mm endometrium lining post ovulation considered too thin on day 19 of 28 day cycle? What is the ideal measurement? Ovulate day 14? Can I conceive

Not the best test: The thickness of the endometrium (in a study) did not predict the outcome of pregnancy. The best odds of conception are with intercourse 1-2 days before ovulation. A surge of the hormone lh occurs about 1 day before ovulation. Commercial kits to measure the lh surge are available at drug stores and are accurate. ...Read more

Your Gyn can help: Your doctor should be guiding you further. If you do not have any abnormal bleeding, then you do not need to rush into anything further as you have already done the biopsy of the endometrium. Serial ultrasounds at 6-12 month intervals can guide further action, if any needed. ...Read more

When does the uterus lining stop thickening? Is it just after ovulation?

Yes: The thickness of the endometrial lining is usually evaluated prior to ovulation when the lining is under the influence of estrogen. After ovulation and the secretion of Progesterone the thickness of the endometrial lining does not change significantly any more. ...Read more

I've read that lutera not only suppresses ovulation but also thins the uterine lining. When I stop taking it will my uterus go back to normal?

I've read that lutera not only suppresses ovulation but also thins the uterine lining. When I stop taking it will my uterus go back to normal?

Yes: Most oral contraceptive pills (ocps) thin the uterine lining. Think of it this way, many doctors will prescribe ocps to treat heavy menstrual bleeding because the pills work to keep the lining of the uterus thin; therefore, minimizing monthly blood loss. This does not damage the uterus. After discontinuing pills, your uterus will be normal. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining, but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining, but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?

Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more

You should: Thin lining doesn't indicate anything specific. Your uterine lining changes from thin to thick depending on where you are in your cycle. So difficult to say if you lining is an issue. An ultrasound around the time of your ovulation will determine if you uterine lining is thick enough for implantation to occur. Talk to your gyn or infertility doctor to discuss these options. ...Read more

HOW CLOMID (clomiphene) CAN AFFECT WHEN USING IT FOR OVULATION INDUCTION THE UTERUS LINING?

HOW CLOMID (clomiphene) CAN AFFECT WHEN USING IT FOR OVULATION INDUCTION THE UTERUS LINING?

Estrogen blocker: Clomid (clomiphene) acts by blocking estrogen receptors. These receptors are present in many parts of the body, including the brain & the lining of the uterus (endometrium). Without estrogen, the endometrium thins out. It doen't affect the other layers of the uterus, so your uterus won't "burst open." Once you stop Clomid (clomiphene), the endometrium will return to normal. ...Read more

I have a regular 27day cycle. Period lasts 2days light flow. Does that mean my uterus lining is to thin. I ovulate every cycle confirmed by bloods.?

Everything's normal: Regular ovulatory (cycles in which ovulations take place) menstrual cycles, a history of several pregnancy with a childbirth all indicate that the hormonal feedback cycle in that particular woman are fully intact as is the inner lining of the uterus. No reason to be concerned that the lining could be too thin. ...Read more
