Estrace and thin lining! What helps?

Hello ladies --

I just had a mini meltdown -- I had a 6 lining on Monday and today was the same despite them upping my estrace to 5 a day since Monday ...three orally and one in the morning and one at night via miss hoohaaa. What can I do to increase a thin lining? We chose a donor and she is stimming and looking to trigger today or tomorrow...

We have struggled to this point and this is the first time donor trial and I really wish something would work out for us....I am so tired of the tears and getting alll these baby announcements and invitations...really about to send me over the edge.

Thanks!

I was always lining challenged and with my current successful cycle I used viagra suppositories. You have to get them from a compounding pharmacy and I took 25mg 4x's daily (Dr. Sher's protocol). Gave me the thickest lining I have ever had which was just over 9mm and triple striped. I had to majorly convince my RE to let me try this but even he was impressed in the end! I know it doesn't work for everyone but it might be worth a try. Others also say that other types of estrogen (injectible, etc) worked for them. I took my estrace both vaginally and orally and then added the viagra.

I don't have any advice, but I wanted to wish you luck. Our first donor cycle has just started, she should start stimming in the next 2 weeks.

plus my naturopathic Dr. recommended castor oil packs from then end of menses until just before transfer.

Soak a thick flannel....I used an old receiveing blanket...in castor oil...put it in a covered casserole dish to heat in the oven or microwave until it is really hot...but not too hot to burn you.

Then take the flannel and laying down, place it on your lowers abs..put a piece of plastic over top and then a heating pad on low to med...lay there for 1/2 hour just before going to sleep every night. Make sure to put a towel down under you to protect your sheets. This will increase the blood supply to your uterus.

I would put on some meditation music and visualize our baby coming as I did our castor oil packs...really good for internal organs as well.

As Minniet said...acupuncture, yoga..inversions...I would do shoulder stands or the plough...and lots of red raspberry leaf tea as a uterine tonic. Deep breathing deeply into your womb to get the tummy rising and falling slowly.

My last FET my lining was superb at 12 ts..14 in some places of my uterus using all these techniques...good luck..,.this is the first little bed that your baby will sleep in.

Blessings from Hope

I would take 4 mg in morning at 6 am, 2 mg at noon, 4 mg at 6 pm and 2 mg at midnight. I would also do 2 mg vaginal at 6 am and 2 mg vaginally at 6 pm. It will improve and continue on that until day of transfer when you will decrease it. I know you will be taking progesterone and estrogen at high doses but it is ok, I work with one doctor who grows lining to 8 - 10 mm prior to egg collection and to 14 mm by increasing doses of estrogen after egg collection - she has fabulous success rates.

I've never heard of the castor oil before..does it really work good or just get the lining 1 mm more? and remember not to drink that red raspberry tea well before transfer it's also causes uterine contractions, so my ivf nurse warned me who also had 6 ivf's before her baby! Good luck, I start my pill popping estrace next week and I'll be doing about 8 per day, yes, some go up miss hoo hoo (that was so funny!) and some under the tongue to melt them is better for absorption!

If you don't mind sharing -- what practice are you at? I was thinking of upping the dose myself -- I don't want this to go to a FET if I can manage a fresh...they are retrieving DE on Sunday so I have til Wednesday....also doing acupuncture tomorrow and Sunday hopefully -- maybe monday if I can fit it in --
