Does your FS expect the thickness may be naturally improved by skipping a cycle or did they say they might adjust your hormones to try and thicken it?

    I really believe even small changes can make a big difference so I'd give anything a go! I think acu is successful for thickening the lining for some people if the cause of thin lining is reduced blood flow in the uterus, there are probably heaps of other benefits too

    Best of luck for your EPU on Monday! 20 follies sounds promising x
    Thanks Serani

    I've only talked to the nurse briefly about it so far, but will get to talk to my FS on Monday afternoon. She said the one months break was to 'give my ovaries a rest' so I assume that means they're thinking about a medicated FET?

    They'll probably put you on something to try to thicken your lining like estrogen tablets. Ive also started wearing socks around the house this month to keep my feet warm because they are ALWAYS cold and acu lady said that is usually an indicator of bad circulation.

    AFM tonight is night 4 of my gonal f injections to hopefully help my lining and today was my second acupuncture session, got another 1 on monday and on wednesday. Got my first bloods for the month on Monday as well, i'm also going to ask for an ultrasound to check lining. Monday cant come any sooner!!!!!

I'm having EPU on Monday but they wont transfer an embryo back to me this month My lining is only 5.7 and they said if it's not at least 7.5 at EPU they don't do the ET. So apparently they'll give me something to bring on AF, then I'll need a month off, then the next month they'll do the ET (which will all probably be more than 2 months because my cycles are usually about 37 days long )

    They're also a bit worried about OHSS as I have all the risk factors. I have 20 good size follicles today so I'm crossing my fingers I at least get a decent number of eggs at EPU.

    Feeling a bit down about it all. I know 2 extra months in the scheme of things isn't huge, but it just feels like it right now!

    ETA: Does anyone have any tips for increasing my lining for next time? I've had acupuncture before but not for a while - would this be helpful to try again do you think?
    There is so much variance in what they call acceptable lining measurements. I've heard anything from 6 is good to nothing under 7.5 is worth transferring on. It's so frustrating!

    I've had a lining of 6.9 at trigger and transferred and got my BFP which was my DS. I've had a transfer at over 9 which was a BFP but ms at 7 weeks and now on this transfer my lining was only 6.1 at trigger to do a FET. I wasn't happy with doing it on a lining so thin but they insisted it would thicken up before transfer and not to worry. Hence why I'm not that confident it will work

    Anyone using baby aspirin from ov / EPU? Anyone used this previously and what, if any effect did it have? Can it delay af?

    Default IVF/FET Jan Feb 2016

    @rainbowroad Yes just then, but no good. And even when I stared at the stick really hard it still didnt make a 2nd appear. Last time I fell preg naturally was after a hycosy and it was 2010! So I highly doubt it would happen again just before IVF cycle. Ive never been one of those stories. Its just delaying my cycle! I should be injecting today!
