What causes a thin uterine lining?

What causes a 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 ). Here, it is normal and not an indication of any problem. ...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

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

Different approach.: Not all doctors will check the lining or your follicle. I like to perform us day 11, 12, or 13 to check ut lining and follicle response to the clomid (clomiphene). For some women Clomid (clomiphene) will cause the lining to thin, which will make getting pregnant difficult. ...Read more

Bleeding: You have bleeding from either spectrum. Thick lining usually associated with cramps bleeding and clots as excessive thick endometrium sloughs off. When the lining thins it exposes your underlining endometrial vessels and they bleed. The fibroid does not help. ...Read more

Too early: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative re do the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period before then. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Progestin is used to thin out uterine lining. But i passed 1 inch thick piece of lining after  over dosing myself with progestin for 3 weeks. Why?

Does both: Progestins can thin the endometrium but they also will cause sloughing of a secretory endometrium, it depends on the specific situation and timing. Btw it's not really possible to 'overdose' on progestins, good news! ...Read more
