Hi there --

My fist mock cycle at Cooper the lining was at 6 and they wanted to do a D&C because they thought they may have seen some scarring. I was afraid and did not let them do it because I already had a D&C for a miscarriage. Went to an A list doctor in NY -- Palter -- and did a sonohyst and a mock cycle. The sonohyst showed no scarring but the lining only went to a 5 mm -- very bad -- and that was with 2 estrace in the morning and night and 1/2 vaginally morning and night.

He said it was unlikely to get preggers with a 5 mm lining -- may be damage to the basal layer that could not be fixed. Has anyone heard anything that might help? I have 8 two day donor embies on ice..now not sure what to do? Get a surrogate or try? He also said that had 17 antral follicles -- crazy number because I am 41.5 and he agrees that some will be abnormal but may have a chance for a normal one ...

Tough choices -- not sure what to do ..go back and talk with the original doc at Cooper?

My RE had me use all the Estrace vaginally. He thinks that it works better that way. I always had lining issues, too. After a few DE transfers, I did have a successful pg.

they really helped me... my lining was never very thick, somewhere in the 6mm range. the viagra got me over the 6mm hump, sometimes even close to 8mm. my RE just wants to see anything over 6mm.

My RE insists that the generic does not work as well for lining. He only prescribes the brand name and I've always gotten a good lining with it. Wow 17 antral follicles...that is impressive. I'd be tempted to try an OE cycle and freeze the embies if lining did not cooperate.

I had horrible lining issues...I'd try delestrogen injections and take all the estrace vaginally. Here's what helped me:

That cycle was a success for me so it can and does happen even for women with lining challenges!!

Wishing you all the best.

So, the new RE is doing injectable estrogen, viagra, baby aspirin, pulling out all the stops!

I will be starting acupuncture end of month, and you may want to try femoral massage as well.

I added 10mg Lexapro to the cycle, starting one month before and continuing till heartbeat. Dr. Beer has found that by increasing serotonin, blood flow to the uterus is increased. I also used injectable estradoil valerate, started at .2 every 3 days and increased by .2 till I got to .7. I used estrace vaginally, 2mg in the morning and at night. My lining got to 10.7 TL.
