    Default Lining issues - what are your periods like? Thin lining = short period? *TMI*

    Im seeing my FS on saturday for the first time but I really can't get this out of my head.

    I have self diagnosed myself a little as having a thin lining. I have been pregnant twice in the last 4 months and both CP.

    My periods are usually like this:
    Day 1 - light to medium (1-2 table spoons of blood)
    Day 2- Super heavy... (6-7 table spoons of blood). maxi pads..but most only comes out in the toilet and i go every hour or so.
    Day 3- light spotting (1 teaspoon at best)
    Day 4 and 5 - SUPER light spotting

    Those of you who have been diagnosed with thin lining what are your periods like? Anyone with light periods and great lining?

    Hi, the amount of blood in your period doesnt correlate with your lining thickness, so dont worry. I wouldnt call your cycle description light at all. Thats good/normal menstruation. Id almost say on the heavy side to be honest. I have way less and worried same as you. But all fs ive seen say its not related. And my lining was always good for transfer. The lining is also tissue much of which is reabsorbed by your body, so not all of the lining is blood, and not all of the lining is expelled. So i wouldnt worry until youve had your lining thickness scanned/ultrasound.

    I wanted to post in case this helps someone.

    I had my lining measured and it was 11mm...so definitely not too thin.

    11mm was my last lining measurement and the FS was more than happy with that as my age is 43yrs old.

    My periods are like this. And I use mummacloth so my periods are hard to gauge how much but its kind of like this.

    day 1. small amount. light loss
    day 2. mod amount. mod blood loss
    day 3. mod amount. mod blood loss
    day 4. small amount. light loss
    day5. a smear or finished.

    When I can be bothered wearing my cup its like

    day 1. Small
    day 2. mod
    day 3. small
    day 4. finished.

    When I wear a cup its like a murder scene in the bathroom. So i have chosen to give that a miss for a while.

    With my DD my lining was 13mm back in 2010
