Ok, I am completely terrified now...I read a post from someone on here that said their lining was completely messed up on clomid, only 50mg for a couple months, I am going onto my second month of clomid 50mg but I am not being monitored, I only thought the monitoring was to make sure their wasn't too many follies resulting in multiples but I am not concerned about that, I won't be given more then I can handle but now I am reading around online that thining of the lining is a main reason you should be monitored, so now I have myself so scared that one of my eggs can become fertilized but not properly implant due to a thin lining...I don't plan on taking the clomid more then 3-4 months tops, but I am still so scared now, I don't want to be making my efforts even worse by taking clomid. I will say that my period right now is heavier and more painful then any period I have had in awhile, do you think thats because I may have produced more then one egg my first round of clomid? I ovulate fine, I am only on it to increase my eggs because we have unexplained fertility. Do you think I should have my ob check to make sure my lining isn't thinning too much? Does your insurance usually cover an u/s for something like that? My dh will not let me pay out of pocket for something like that...I don't know what I should do.

You should be monitored because of cysts, high number follicles, thin lining, not responding, and possible other issue.

It's really hard to say. I know there are some supplements you can take to counteract the thinning of the lining as well, and that could help. I've read wheat germ oil, B6 supplements, even baby aspirin can help. I would ask your doc if those supplements are OK to use first (particularly the aspirin - some folks can't handle an aspirin regimen).

I wouldn't worry too much; the thinnest lining I've ever had (3.5!) was when I got pregnant with my daughter! My doc at the time told me that she's seen a lot of other women with thin linings have good healthy pregnancies.

Unfortunately, getting an u/s to check your lining would probably not be covered by insurance, unless there was a medical (not fertility) reason for it.

I know in my case insurance paid for it, and I was in for ultrasounds by at least CD 10 and then every other day until O, and a baseline every month on CD 3.

Definately voice your concerns with your RE or OBGYN!

This makes me feel better that you conceived your dd with a thin lining...I thought I might be setting myself up for a miscarriage...knowing my stingy insurance, they wouldn't pay for the u/s, its like a mortgage payment paying for it every month though they are don't want to cover anything!

I was on clomid for 7 months and have no clue if my lining is thin or not. I am going to request an u/s to find out and am prepared to take supplements to improve the situation if there is a problem. I really wish I had known the potential lining issues before taking clomid (I should have done more research). As someone who has tried for a number of years and had some miscarriages in that time, I can't even begin to tell you how absolutely devastated I would be if I finally got pregnant only to miscarry because of a thin lining caused by clomid. Because of that, if I were in your situation, I would request u/s monitoring if I decided to continue with clomid. I think that I would be more inclined to try soy isoflavones though because they are supposed to have the positive effects on ovulation that clomid has without the unfortunate side effects (thinning of the lining, hot flashes, etc.).

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Thank you, if no success on clomid by Feb/March I am stopping, I have 2 refills left. I, like you would be unbelievably devestated to endure such a long journey just to have a miscarriage from a thin lining, I struggled for 26 months to conceive my son and now onto 15 months TTC # 2...I was just reading the post about Brandi and others success with soy, lemon water, and geritol...I am going to add the lemon water and geritol this month and start the soy if no luck with clomid in a couple months.

I would check with the insurance before ruling them paying out. I know my job before I became a SAHM actually paid for IVF and I'd never had guessed until someone told me she was going through IVF. My insurance now pays for everything but IUI and IVF.

Sorry to have scared you...I was the one who posted about the problems with Clomid. I definitely wasn't trying to say that this happens to all women or that it would definitely prevent pregnancy...it was just my experience, and lots of other women have very different results. For many women, all it takes is a little boost of Clomid, and they are on their way to a healthy pregnancy.

Good luck! I hope that you and your doctor can find a plan that works!

I agree with Melissa....Clomid's affects really depend on the individual. A lot of women love it and it works fine for them...other women (myself included) had lining issues.

To counteract the lining issues, my doctor had me take Estrace vaginally. It helped a bit...

Thanks and no need to apologize, you were just stating what happened to you but it did scare me, but I have a tendency to be a worrier and just reading things and imagining it happening to me worries me to death...I wish I didn't worry so much. I just feel like I had to try sooo long for my son and am trying so long again, I don't want to screw anything up
