Recently, Kristin wrote in to Ask The Egg Whisperer. She's 39, and she's undergoing her first IVF cycle. Here's what she asked, "I am currently preparing my uterine lining for transfer. After two weeks of taking Estrace two pills, three times daily, my uterine lining only measured 4.8 millimeters. My doctor increased my estrogen by prescribing patches. (Two patches that are replaced every other day). After one week of using the patches and pills, my lining increased to 5.5 millimeters. My doctor wants me to continue on this protocol for another week and see what kind of progress we make. What causes it then uterine lining. What thickness do you recommend for transfer? What can I do besides medication to increase my lining thickness?" This is not an uncommon problem, and I share my thoughts on it in this episode.
