If the diagnosis of a constantly thin endometrial lining has been hindering your chances of conceiving, please know there is hope. An accurate diagnosis of why your endometrial lining remains constantly thin is key to overcoming this medical condition. I can’t emphasize enough how a customized In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment protocol can effectively treat your constantly thin endometrial lining and improve your chances of pregnancy.
During an IVF cycle, your endometrial lining is routinely measured for thickness through vaginal ultrasounds. An endometrial thickness of 8 mm or greater is considered adequate for successful embryo implantation. Poor endometrial lining thickness is commonly the root cause of infertility for women having multiple unexplained IVF failures. A thin endometrial lining is also routinely the diagnosis for women experiencing recurrent miscarriages.
Why is this important?
Women having a history of using birth control pills for 10 years or longer are prone to having a thin endometrial lining. The use of Clomid while undergoing multiple cycles of Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) in a row may contribute to a constantly thin endometrial lining. Pregnancy and live birth success rates rise substantially with increased endometrial thickness – independent of patient age and embryo quality factors.
What is the bottom line for unexplained constantly thin endometrial lining treatment? Estrogen treatment supplemented with Viagra.
A constantly thin endometrial lining can also be attributable to one of the following specific medical circumstances:
Endometritis – chronic infection of the endometrial cells
When an infection of the uterine lining is suspected – endometritis – a diagnosis is confirmed through:
A diagnosis of endometritis calls for antibiotic treatment using a multidrug approach for 7 to 10 days to eliminate the chronic inflammation of the endometrial lining. This antibiotic treatment regimen will allow patients to resume IVF treatment after one menstrual cycle.
Intrauterine Adhesions and Pathology (Fibroids or Polyps)
Intrauterine adhesions – scar tissue – and fibroids or polyps are conditions preventing an embryo from implanting in the uterus.
Intrauterine adhesions result from:
Common female surgical procedures performed at New Hope Fertility NYC will correct an endometrial lining that is constantly thin.
Women Using Clomiphene Citrate – Clomid, Serophene
Women using Clomid can suffer from a thin endometrial lining. Clomid is a fertility medication that acts as an anti-estrogen at the level of the uterus. Alternatively, injectable FSH medications in addition to estrogen supplements are recommended. These injectable FSH medication regimens result in high pregnancy rates with successful ovulation the majority of the time.
