I’ve been dealing with persistantly thin lining. Originally my RE thought it was due to scar tissue/Asherman’s, but since its removal and his declaration that I have a “textbook normal” uterus, he can’t figure out why my lining is persistantly thin. My E2 levels are normal. The thickest my lining got was during an unmedicated, acupuncture only, cycle and that was 6.2mm. Last cycle they tried medicating me for FET, but my lining was completely uncooperative- it only got up to 3.7mm, despite being on Estrace for 3 weeks.
So last week I had a doppler u/s to check uterine blood flow. It seems this is something my RE just started doing since the u/s tech and nurse had no idea what they were seeing/looking for as they were doing it. Got a phone call from the nurse yesterday that I have low uterine blood flow- she didn’t have details or much info beyond that. I’m anxiously awaiting a call back from my RE now, (is mine severe? mild? what are my numbers as compared to the norm??) but in this case a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing-- I consulted with Dr. Google last night and now I’m wondering if it’s even worth TTC with “low uterine blood flow”. To my untrained eye, it looked like this may be correlated with RPL, specifically 2nd and 3rd trimester loses.
Is there any hope? Has anyone heard of this or dealt with this before? Is surrogacy my only option?
