    Default HELP!!! Thin Wall Lining

    I am new to this forum. I have been doing IVF for approx 2.5 years. I have done 4 full Stims (1 no transfer and froze 2 embryos), 3 FET's with one miscarriage at 8 weeks. I have PCOS and thin lining. I have had alot of cancelled cycles due to thin lining. I have had a flush and scrapping of the lining. have tried proynova on it's own gets to about 6ish after 3 weeks at 5 tablets a day, tried letrozol (didn't do much), tried 10 proynova, fsh injections, clexane, estradur patches, sandrena gel, nitrodur patch lining got to 6.2 then went down to 5.5. I had letrozol where my lining got to 3.6 we are trying to save this lining and am now on fsh injection, 40mg clexane, 10 progynova, nitrodur patch. I have also tried pineapple, kiwi fruit and brazil nuts and am going to acupuncture once a week.

    Is there anything else that could help my lining thicken up. Has anyone else had problems with their lining?

    Hi there if you have had a scraping of the lining or d&c's it may be worth looking into the possibility of Ashermans syndrome which is when the lining is damaged and unable to grow. Hopefully this is not the case but everyone needs to be aware of this syndrome.

    A lot of ladies on threads i've read on BH say that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice each day in the first half of their cycle helps with their lining. Might be worth a try?

    Hi Laine
    I've read about some women trying Viagra for thin lining.
    Good luck

    Hi Laine74,

    Like wishmeluck has mentioned I was advised to try Viagra with high-dose Vitamin E. I was a bit worried about the Viagra so only did the Vitamin E & my lining was better than the previous 2 cycles. I can't remember what dose I took tho. Might be worth a go. Could look back at my notes & try to see what the dose was if you are interested. Good Luck

    Hi Laine,
    Unfortunately like Petrult I only developed thin linings after a D&C. I was eventually diagnosed with Asherman's syndrome after battling with chronically thin lining & diminishing periods for close to a year. I am trying Viagra pessaries right now but so far unfortunately doesn't seem to have helped much. Other things I am trying to improve lining are acupuncture & TCM, Vit E 500mg, raspberry leaf tea, l'arginine and baby aspirin.

    You might find the Asherman's thread in the sticky section helpful to see if any of the symptoms match up with your experience but again I hope this isn't the case for you.

    We did Viagra pessaries this cycle and it did seem to help. I also drink a glass of coconut water a day which is also said to help.

    Thank you all. Sorry for my delay in replying I've had trouble getting onto the website from my phone.

    I have tried Viagra and progynova vaginally this didn't seem to do help. I am on supplements daily of vitamin E, folic acid, fish oil, zinc, Q10 co-enzyme, aspirin, berocca, diabex/metforn prednisone, feldene.

    FS has mentioned my thin lining could be from D&C or infection or poor blood flow. He hasn't mentioned this is called Ashermans Syndrome. I have had thin lining problems before I had the D&C but I am now starting to think maybe it had gotten worse since the D&C.

    How do they know you have Ashermans Syndrome? I have had a hysteroscopy and a laprascopy and they found a bit of Endo.

    I will give the rasberry leaf tea and pomegranate juice a go. Not too much a fan of coconut drinks.

    I have had to cancel another cycle last week lining got to 5. Third transfer cancelled.

    Starf1sh how did your lining go?

    Laine,
    Sorry to hear about the cancelled cycle Mine was also cancelled yesterday, just wouldn't progress much above 4mm, very disheartening

    I did not find out I had Asherman's until I went to see an A list Specialist in this area who performed a hysteroscopy and found I had extensive scarring in my uterus and damage to both the endometrium and myometrium. To be honest I wasted a lot of time with my FS who really had no f@#% idea and he was also the surgeon who performed the D&C's which led to me acquiring Asherman's. My story is here http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...man-s-Syndrome

    Unfortunately many of the things you describe do sound like Asherman's (repeated thin lining, history of D&C's and concern about vascularisation in your uterus). It is also inadvisable to try and conceive if you do have adhesions in your uterus due to the risk of miscarriage.

    However, it is important to know there is much hope that with the right treatment you can conceive and deliver a healthy bub and there is a lot of helpful info on the link I have posted above. My new FS now wants me to try another medication, Trental in combination with Vit E for a couple of months and see if this will help with the vascular (poor blood flow) issue.

    Good luck and happy to chat further about it xx
