How did your FET go in July
Breezyboo? I know how frustrating it is we have been trying for 3 years now. Been going through IVF for over a year now. Praying the tamoxifen works!! As oral Estrogen certainly doesn't for me.

Thin lining issues are driving me mad!

They said I had very mild endometriosis but that there was nothing else to report.
When I went through my first cycle of ivf to do egg collection, the scan just before egg collection when I was taking menopur, my lining was at 6.3mm then they scanned me after egg collection as I had done fluid on the scan and my lining had dropped slightly so they gave me Estrogen tablets to take for 5 days before ET. But then by the day of ET the scan showed my lining was at 4.5mm so had dropped.so that was the highest it had been.

I was also taking progesterone pessaries which is standard practice straight after egg collection at my hospital.
How high has your lining got to?

Have you ever had a pregnancy or uterine surgery such as d&c?

And I got mine finally to 9.8mm but it took a long time of trying different things. I did antibiotics for 2 weeks as well in case i had an infection of my lining (endometritis).

Hi I'm new to the forum but have been scouring the Internet for other ladies with the "thin lining" issue.
I've had two cycles cancelled due to my lining never getting over 6mm. On fresh and one frozen cycle. We now have two frozen embryos.
Estrogen tablets seem to not work for me at all and my lining disappears completely. Also I've had fluid on my scans.
I'm about to start another cycle and am on tamoxifen days 2-6 then I'm going for a scan, after which I'll be on lubion and pegestrone pessaries. Also I'm having a trigger shot injection the same as I had for egg collection.
At et day on my fresh transfer attempt my lining ended up at 4 and was abandoned.
The first frozen attempt I down regulated and then they started me on Estrogen tablets. Kept in creasing my dosage as I wasn't thickening enough and eventually my lining completely disappeared. It's so stressful and upsetting. Just hoping it works for us this time. It's so good to read about others successes and gives you hope there will be something that works! Any advice would be much appreciated xx


Hi Princess Pariz,

I have chronic thin lining issues....never produced a lining over 7.0mm...and most often 6.0mm. The only thing that has ever worked for me is vaginal viagara (sildenifil) and terbutaline. I think something like 70% of women will respond to sildenifil but I was in the 30% that needed to add terbutaline. The terbutaline relaxes the uterine muscle. Good luck!
It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

Breezyboo, no I've never had a d&c or any pregnancy surgery before.
They did a biopsy from my uterus during my hysteroscopy.
That sound encouraging though. I've never heard of using antibiotics to help the lining?
What worked for you in the end?
Thank you for your help with this.

Also yes I've heard about using viagra before and our specialist at the hospital did mention it as a thought for the future of this doesn't work.
But he said that the form I would need is only available in America and as we are in England I'm not sure how easy it will be to get.
So you used the viagra with another drug at the same time to boost the lining?
Was this done in a natural cycle?
Thank you both

Hockey gal, thank you for your post I'll make a note of these things and mention them to our specialist if this doesn't work out. I've been feeling like I'm the only one in the world who has this problem as even our hospital don't seem to have come across it before which is very distressing.
So to hear that you have come through it with linings of those measurement makes me feel so much more positive!!
Have you had your BFP yet?
Thanks again

I tried just sildenifil (vaginal viagara) with the first round to no avail. The second round we added the terbutaline and that was the magic combo that brought me to over 9.00mm. :-). The sildenifil needs to be compounded...could your RE find a compounding pharmacy in England to make this for you?

I have - but nothing that stuck around...but that was before we knew about my immune issues. We're currently embryo banking and will eventually send out the embryos for CGH testing to identify the euploid blasts. :)

Ahh ok well I really hope you get there, so many hurdles to cross...at least you have your lining issue box ticked and that's such a big thing to have over come.

I'll speak to our specialist and see what they know of the drugs and if we could get them or know a pharmacy that we can use to purchase them.
Fingers crossed we can. If it works we will find a way to get it! Thank you so much and hope you get your result very soon

Hzlidqt thank you for passing on your successful treatment cycle details, that's brilliant news that your now pregnant and this worked for you.certainly something to look at if this cycle doesn't work out.

I'm on cd 9 I had a scan yesterday after taking 20mg tamoxifen from cd2-6
Other than that so far I'm taking nothing else.
My scan yesterday revealed on cd8 my lining is 5mm with no fluid which for me already is a positive scan. However I'm being scanned again on cd10 so we shall see what's happening then.

Estrace tablets for me didn't seem to work they even upped me to 4 tablets a day in the end for 3 weeks after down regging during my first FET cycle and my lining thinned out, there was fluid and in the end I had no lining at all.

I've had a blood test yesterday on cd8 results on cd10 they will see how my estriol levels look.

We shall see what happens on my next scan.
As this is a natural cycle we are governed by the window of opportunity for ET.

I'm also taking vitamin e, pregnacare conception tablets, flaxseed oil, selenium,coenzyme q10, Royal jelly & bee pollen. Eating Brazil nuts, walnuts and lots of dark green veg, fruit and pure Pom juice.light walking is my exercise.
Keeping tummy nice and warm too.

Not sure what else I can do right now but trying not to drive myself mad waiting to see what happens on my next scan.

Drugs I've been give to use on the cycle (depending on scan and if we get that far)

Lubion pegestrone injections
Pegestrone pessaries
Pregnyl injection

Just an up date:
My cycle has been abandoned as my lining was at 5.2 at cd10
They are starting me again this month with a double dose of tamoxifen 40mg instead of 20mg.
As they felt the tamoxifen was working but with a stronger dose it will thicken my lining more and hopefully get me to transfer in December.

So fingers crossed.

Thank you for all the advice so far.

Started 40mg tamoxifen this cycle and my lining at day 11 was 6.6 which is a personal best for me so I'm feeling positive. I've had my trigger shot at day 11 and and now being scanned to see when I ovulate. Hoping I'll be ready to transfer this month fingers crossed.

So at day 14 my lining is at 6.2 I ovulated today so I've started lubion injections and pegestrone pesseries twice a day.
Scan on day 11 was 6.6 so it has dropped slightly.
Plus there slight fluid now present.
They are continuing though but won't transfer this cycle.
RE has said we will Just seeing how I go in the luteal phase and Use this as research for my next cycle, based on the outcome.
We shall see, frustrating as tamoxifen does seem to work for me up to a point.
May need to add something else after the tamoxifen?

I tried just sildenifil (vaginal viagara) with the first round to no avail. The second round we added the terbutaline and that was the magic combo that brought me to over 9.00mm. :-). The sildenifil needs to be compounded...could your RE find a compounding pharmacy in England to make this for you?


Please see above. The tamoxifen only got your lining to 6.6 which is still very poor. Hoping a different protocol would work for you.

It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

I'm not on any Estrogen at all just tamoxifen taken cd2-cd6
Then I had my hCG trigger shot injection after which they saw fluid. Up until this point there was no fluid on my scans.
I'm now taking progesterone injections and pesseries and will be scanned again on Friday.
They won't transfer this cycle but will use this as research.

Random question for everyone. Have you all given up drinking during your ivf? I've had one glass of champers on Christmas Day and that's it. I do love a drink and it's killing me. But thought I'd see what your thoughts were on it? I'd hate to do anything to impact on my lining in any way.
