After 10 months of unsuccessful TCC, I found out last month that I have slightly low estrogen and thin uterine lining (0.6) . This is not a huge surprise, as my periods since getting off the BCP have been really light (1 day of bleeding and a couple of days of spotting). But, I also found out that I ovulate, so yay to that!
My RE put me on 37.5 IU menopur and I am really hopeful that this will help increase my lining thickness, but I am worried since I couldn't find much info on treatment of thin uterine lining.
So, I am in need of feel-good stories . Anyone out there who got pregnant with thin lining? Also, which drugs (if any) were you on?
Not sure if I'll be of any help but said I'd reply. My periods have been really light since coming of the pill a few years ago adn even lighter since a MC which happened last March. I actually thought i had ashermans ( uterine scarring from a bad d&c) but this was ruled out.
What I did last month as take 2 cups of raspberry leaf tea, high dose vitamin e, b complex with slow release b6 and l'argine and low and behold last scan showed lining at 8mm. I also had acupuncture so maybe that helped. Have you tried acupuncture?
I actually got Mirena (a hormonal IUD that lightens or can even stop your period, by preventing the endometrial lining from building up) because my periods were so HEAVY. It was in for 2.5 years and then I got it taken out. My first period was half a day of spotting. My second period was maybe a day and a half of barely bleeding, where I could get by with just liners. Needless to say I was kind of worried about whether it would ever come back.
I heard acupuncture can be really helpful to increase blood flow to the pelvis, but here it's $100+ a session so I just manually massaged the spot they would put a needle into every night (it's about 2 inches below your belly button). I also was careful to get plenty of lean protein, like eggs, did a lot of walking, and generally just trieId to gently help my body get back to where it used to be. I was also on fish oil supplements and a prenatal vitamin. My OB says she likes to see people on a complete prenatal 3 months prior to TTC.
I've heard that bromelain supplements can be helpful, as can certain other vitamins. If it's hormonal, you might need some help to get things back on track but I do think our bodies know what to do, sometimes they just need a little help.
