Well no cycle after Progesterone, then treated with Estradiol for two weeks. Lining did not build up beyond 5 where it already was, yet the ovary responded by making a big cyst:) Estradiol levels high, so now we have to do hysteroscopy to find out why lining didn't respond. Has anyone else ever had this issue and is there really anything that can be done? I do have a few fibroids, but they said from the beginning that they weren't significant nor in the way to prevent implantation. It just seems I am always running into roadblocks:)
Mine didn't build during my real cycle like it did during my mock, despite my E2 levels being quite high. I ended up using 4 Vivelle patches, twice daily vaginal Estrace, AND acupuncture before I finally had success. My E2 levels were around 2000 by the time my lining was sufficient.
and the best we could do was 6.7...which turned out to be my lucky cycle.
I used two patches and a compound supp that was made by my pharmacist. She was able to obtain pure estrogen from a lab in Texas and she compounded that for me..which i used twice a day. Cost a fortune but did the trick. I had tried estrace vaginally but could not get it higher than a 6 with that.
There are many newer methods to bulk up the lining..I am hoping the others will chime in for you.
I was on 5 patches for a while. estrogen level was over 3000 and got lining up to 11mm. previous cycle I took estrace pills and only got to 7mm. cancelled cycle month before that I ovulated through the estrace, pretty good litle ovary for 52 yrs old lol
4 patches every 2 days, 2mg estradiol tabs 2x/day, 1mg estradiol vaginally, lining 4 cm

Tallk about lining problems..... I'm on 4 vivelle patches every other day, 2mg estradiol tablets twice a day, 1mg estradiol vaginally twice a day and my lining is still 4cm. Just added estrogen IM 2x/day. Anyone heard of ths happening? I'm lucky this is a mock cycle and we figured ths out now. I'm wondering if there is something wrong with me. Not to mention the cost!!! Any experience?
