I just wanted to update people as its been 7 months since my last update about my thin lining.
Just a recap, I had my first cycle of IVF in March 2019. We got 7 embryos that all made it to blastocyst stage which we were so happy with. However we realised then that the lining was going to be an issue as we had to freeze all due to my very thin lining. I can't remember the measurements but I think it was below 4.5mm.
Following this we had 3 x FET cycles cancelled due to thin lining. I was on maximum amount of all estrogen tablets, patches and viagra but it would not get to 6mm. We eventually went for a FET as we made it to 6mm but that resulted in a BFN. That was in July 2019.
We have changed clinic and straight away we were told to make lifestyle changes. I am naturally quite slim but with BMI of 19 which was fine. I was running a lot at the time but told that I had to completely stop all exercise and try to put on weight.
It's been a long journey and really hard as I've felt so low at times but I've stuck with it and only been doing 30min walks each day. Also drinking lots of raspberry leaf tea, vitamin E and L'Arginine.
We're now on a new cycle of IVF wiht ICSI, currently on day 7 of stims and my lining is 6.8mm which is incredible for me! I know this isn't huge for some ladies on here but given my experience this is a huge improvement!
We still have a long way to go and I don't want to get ahead of myself but I also wanted to give some hope to other women out there who are struggling with this. I know I've found it so hard and felt so frustrated with lining issues I just wanted to share my experiences with others out there.
It might be a different next week but for now I'm enjoying the tiny bit of happiness :).
Have a good weekend all xx
