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?

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

I am having an endo sweeping. I have a 3-5 CM buildup of the uterine lining. I have never had any other symptoms (no bleeding, cramps, pain, etc.)i am 6o, on bhrt for 20 years. Why would this be needed?

I am having an endo sweeping. I have a 3-5 CM buildup of the uterine lining. I have never had any other symptoms (no bleeding, cramps, pain, etc.)i am 6o, on bhrt for 20 years. Why would this be needed?

Rule out cancer: A typical postmenopausal endometrial lining measurement should be <4-5 mm because the ovaries are not actively producing hormones to thicken up the lining. Being on hrt with estrogen alone increases the risk of uterine cancer, therefore you should be on both estrogen and Progesterone to reduce this risk. This combination should keep your lining thin. Sometimes a benign polyp can thicken lining. ...Read more

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud.?

Sometimes one does: See more decidual (lining) tissue than blood in a menstrual period...rarely the whole uterine lining will be passed in one piece...a decidual cast. This will usually be an isolated event, and the next period will have the usual lining mixed with blood. The Skyla IUD is associated with lighter periods as well. If persists/more questions, return to your Doc. Good wishes:) ...Read more

My uterus lining is shedding but I am not bleeding. I am sexually active and am wondering if there is a possibility that I am pregnant?

Uterine shedding: I'm not at all sure what you mean by thinking your uterine lining is shedding but no bleeding - this is really not possible. If your'e having some type of vaginal discharge without blood, it is not your lining. You need to see your OB/GYN to determine true source of the discharge to make sure some other form of treatment is not needed. And if you are sexually active, pregnancy is always possible ...Read more

I don't understand how a steroid spray can help chronic rhinitus when those sprays thin the lining and can cause bleeding. How?

Effect vs side effx: The steroid helps quiet the immune / inflammatory response in the sinuses from the irritants and bacteria present. There is a risk of mucosal thinning and subsequent bleeding, but not everyone gets that. It can sometimes be mitigated by using saline nasal spray intermittently as well. Risks far less than oral / systemic steroids. ...Read more

What causes a thin uterine lining?

What causes a thin uterine lining?

Here, it is normal and not an indication of any problem. ...Read more
