Yes: Most oral contraceptive pills (ocps) thin the uterine lining.

This does not damage the uterus. After discontinuing pills, your uterus will be normal. ...Read more

Do consecutive failed zygote implantation affect fertility? My uterus lining will be recovering from a marina coil removal(which thins the u wall out)

Do consecutive failed zygote implantation affect fertility? My uterus lining will be recovering from a marina coil removal(which thins the u wall out)

Fertility recovers: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) releases progestin which thins your uterine lining and makes it unfavorable for implantation. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed your lining recovers and your fertility should be back to normal very rapidly. Not getting pregnant the first 2 months after Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal does not affect your future chances, but at 32 you should get pregnant in the first year of trying. See your doctor if not. ...Read more

Very sore  in ext. vaginal area   I avoid sex and in menopause. Waiting for results from pelvic ultrasound to see if uterus lining thin. Suggestions?

Vaginal Estrogen: When you are in menopause, your body stops making estrogen. Since the vaginal tissue is very sensitive to estrogen, it can become thin and lose its ability to stretch. When you have intercourse, you can actually get micro-tears in the vaginal wall that are painful. These symptoms usually respond to a vaginal estrogen cream or tablet. Don't have intercourse if its painful. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have had what looks like my lining of my uterus come out but I haven't bled just spotted two days before but only for that day. Why could that be?

I have had what looks like my lining of my uterus come out but I haven't bled just spotted two days before but only for that day. Why could that be?
