I've really struggled with this. I was stuck at 5mm, even during IVF when I had very high estrogen. Had to cancel a FET afterwards because I couldn't get past 5mm.
- Hysterscopy which found some adhesions they removed
- Supplements; citrulline malate/l arginine, black cohosh, vitamin e - 3 months of these supplements and I was able to hit 7mm without medication
- Tea; sounds crazy but I added red raspberry leaf tea and my next cycle saw my first ever 10mm!!!!
- Neuopogen wash - expensive but we tried it and I got another 1mm (7-8mm)
I'm in the middle of IVF and on cycle day 13 and am at 7mm. Not amazing but I was at 4mm with a bunch of fluid in my lining when we stared this cycle.
The problem with thin lining is that different things seem to work for different people. And some things work and then stop working. And I've found I have to be taking all of this stuff religiously. Took a break on a supplement and was immediately stuck at 5mm one cycle.
Search the forums for 'thin lining' as there are some great threads with a ton of information.
