Hormonal issues (e.g., estrogen being too low - which can be improved with estrodial valearate supplements e.g., oral or vaginal progynova (cyclacur white pills), skin patches e.g., estrofem, or injections of estrodial valearate.

Another possible cause is endometritis (inflammation of the lining) - usually due to an infection e.g., chlamydia, mycoplasma, ureaplasma. Sometimes apparent from a hysteroscopy as a red, spotty 'strawberry-like' lining. Usually easy to treat with antibiotics although if the bacteria can be successfully identified (e.g., by taking a biopsy sample and culturing it, or potentially, using the greek menstrual blood tests, it may be easier to choose an appropriate antibiotic.

What about permanent damage to the endometrium, besides STDs are there other causes?

Are there medications to counteract the effect of compromised blood flow?

Vitamin e, L-arginine and selenium have also been shown to help lining growth. On the other hand, treatments such as saline flush or endometrial scratches probably will not increase lining thickness but may help implantation generally. ;) ;) ;) ;)

sometimes a hysteroscopy with a mild D&C can help to re-invigorate the lining tissue so that it grows more evenly but not necessarily more thickly next time.

Thick linings are sometimes seen with PCOS or perhaps adenomyosis (experienced docs should be able to identify adenomyosis from the appearance of an ultrasound scan but inexperienced docs find this difficult) , or sometimes due to the presence of a cyst which is releasing hormones and preventing the normal drop in hormones. Providing a thick lining has a normal appearance on ultrasound (uniform, tri-laminar) and has been shed recently (bear in mind that if you are post menopausal or have down regulated, lining does not start to grow until you start estrogen medication so it is 'fresh' at the point of starting estrogen meds), they are not thought to cause a problem, but an old, thick, patchy lining needs to be shed and regrown to give a better chance at embryo transfer. Studies have shown a significantly reduced pregnancy rate where DE recipients have been kept on estrogen for more than 5 weeks prior to ET (showing the effect of an old lining).

Hello! Again I have something to tell you. Even if you have chosen the procedure of IVF and think everything’s under control, you can still do lots of things to boost your chances.
A balanced diet will help to ensure your body to become pregnant. It will also nourish a developing baby.
Regular, moderate exercise of around 30 minutes a day helps to keep fit. Besides you keep your weight in check. It also boosts levels of endorphins, the body’s ‘happy hormones’. It helps to struggle stress. And that helps to feel good.
If you are taking regular medication which can reduce your chances of conceiving, ask your doctor about suitable alternatives.
If you smoke, quit. Smoking has been linked to infertility and early menopause in women.
These were the recommendations I followed when I decided to become a mother. And I am sure they were useful. Of course, with the procedure itself!.. ;)

There are many issues to consider that can influence your prospects of conceiving. I’m 46.
As a couple who has been unsuccessful in starting a family we moved directly into IVF in one of the clinics. It’s clear that we both as intended parents required a careful evaluation. We followed all recommendations. At last we faced a repeated failure of IVF. :( That’s why decided to change the previous clinic to biotexcom.
We went to the center in order to start egg donation procedure. You know, the leading reasons for receiving an egg donation are the following. One – a decrease in ovarian function due to age or disease. Two – repeated IVF failure. Three – genetic conditions precluding a normal pregnancy. :geek:
I was really exhausted. But it wasn’t the time to give up. For our great amusement, they offered a completely different approach.
The staff did care about our physical and emotional well-being. Specialized tests were performed depending on the type of infertility. And the final decision was made rather quickly. That was the first impression of the clinic.
