Why Fertiliz Egg Attach To Uterine Lining
How do I know that my uterine lining is receptive to implantation? Are there any symptomp when its rejecting the fertilized egg?
No way: The uterus becomes receptive to implantation for a few days which is mostly controlled by hormones that come from the ovary. Unfortunately, it is impossible to tell based on these symptoms whether an embryo implants or not. ...Read more
I passed a translucent ball with a red line through it. Was that an egg that didn't attach to my lining? (Beginning of BC and threw up a week before.)
Hmmm....: Human eggs are "invisible" because they are the size of the dot at the end of this sentence. So, a human egg is not a ball of any kind that a patient can see or touch. A doctor, a scientist, or a technician can see an egg by looking at it with a microscope or similar equipment, if they know where the egg is. ...Read more
Could taking low-dose aspirin make it harder for fertilized egg to attach? Can it make the lining thicker, but harder to attach to?
No: We have no evidence of this happening ...Read more
It doesn't survive: If an egg fails to attach to the uterine wall the female will slough it off with the period. ...Read more
Once the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and starts to attach itself, does it take a few days to fully burrow into the uterus?
No?: I wouldn't use the word "burrow." But the attachment is not complete for several more days. ...Read more
Once the fertilized egg reaches the uterus and starts to attach itself, how long does it take to completely attach? Will sex interfere with attachment
7-10 days: Implantation happens about 7-10 days after conception. Intercourse won't interfere with implantation. Best wishes! ...Read more
Can a fertilized egg move after its been attached to the uterus wall, then reattach to the uterus wall in a different spot?
Unlikely: Once implantation occurs movement will not occur unless you miscarry. ...Read more
More info needed: While this is definitely greater than average it must be evaluated in the context of your particular situation. The timing of your last period, other symptoms, medications, and the appearance of the thickening are all important considerations. Management could range from continued observation to surgical procedures. ...Read more
Tissue layer: The inner lining of the uterus builds up under the influence of estrogens from the ovaries during the first half of the menstrual cycles, and under the influence of progesterone released from the ovary after ovulation transforms into a tissue layer suited to nurture a fertilized egg. If there is no pregnancy, this inner lining is shed during the menstrual period. ...Read more
No scar: The uterine lining, the endometrium, gets thicker during the first half of the menstrual cycle such as to provide a cushion for a fertilized egg to implant. When there is no fertilized egg implanting, the uterus with contractions (cramps) loosens and sheds the inner lining, making clots appear in menstrual blood. This process is not associated with scarring. ...Read more
Blood tests/biopsy: First with be a history and physical exam and then possibly blood tests. Also a biopsy of the uterine lining may be needed. ...Read more

Cd3 e2 level of 76. Two follicles at 10.3mm and 12.5mm. Uterine lining of 6mm. Is this normal for cd3? Does this indicate dor?
5 days into cycle uterine lining meaasured 7mm already had hysteroscopy which showed mildly proliferative but is 7mm too thick?
No: 7mm would likely be consistent with the endometrium specimen that shows mild proliferative. Proliferative just means the lining is getting prepared for ovulation. In general once the lining gets over 15mm in thickness then we start worrying about the possibility of hyperplasia. If overly concerned consider getting an endometrial ablation. I prefer Novasure. That should end all bleeding issues. ...Read more
I am about to start a frozen donor egg cycle. I'm 41 years old and have had linning issues in past. Is there anything I can do to improve lining?
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
How to prevent uterine lining from thickening on bhrt. And once it thickens from too much estrogen can I make it thin out by decreasing my estrogen?
Dr. Is it possible that high doses of sythetic progestin for 2 months did not thin out my uterine lining but caused it to pass? (2cm long, 1.5cm thick)
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
