Lining thickness

Hi Guys,

Just out for some answers. Went in for my first FET scan (this is day 16). I am doing a medicated cycle.

My lining thickness was 6,4mm and nurse has said I need to continue on the oestrogen. She didn’t increase it.

I’m booked to go in, in the next 7 days to review the lining again.

I asked if the measurement was normal at this stage and she comforted me that it is fine for now and it was not necessary to give extra patches.

So my question really is, is this level normal and is it building ok within the timeframe? How long did it take to build your lining for transfer?

She said they were aiming for 8mm. It doesn’t seem unachievable but not sure as it has taken 16 days to get to 6,4mm so not sure of the growth that can happen in next 7 days?

How long did it take any of you to go 8mm and above?

Any experiences would be great.

Just worried as usual!!

It sounds achievable to me. My clinic said a minimum of 9mm. They increased my dosage when my first scan showed 5.6mm

Thanks Sanchia, what level did you reach and how long were you on the dosage for?

Once they increased my dose from two to three tablets I got to 9mm within two days. I feel like maybe if I had stayed at two per day I may have still got to the 9mm just would’ve taken a bit longer x

Oh great! I’m also on tablets, but have been on 4 (8mg in total) per day. We will see if things improve next week. She seemed to try and say that lining was going as expected. So will just have to see. Hopefully next week I can be on 8mm or ideally more... thx for your msg and good luck with your test tomorrow. Xxx

Hi Beebeestar, I drank a glass of pure pomegranate juice every day starting the week before egg collection & only stopped at 8 weeks pregnant. Also i had 5/6 x Brazil nuts daily & a handful of mixed nuts. I didn't do these on my 1st failed cycle. I don't know if it made a difference but they said my lining was great at the scans. I'm now 12 weeks pregnant & have my scan this evening. Good luck with everything. X
