i was taught that your endo should measure approx 8 mm for successful implantation

Your lining still has time to grow. You have around 24-36 hours after you trigger before you ovulate. Then implantation doesn’t occur until 7-10 days after that. So that is at least 8 more days that your lining could potentially grow.

Also, your RE can prescribe you estrogen to help with your lining. My first RE did that with me when I was on Clomid.

I second PPs- your doctor should for sure be giving you endometrin to increase your lining starting now. 

Don’t lose hope. My doctor said my egg was growing and we were all set to trigger with ovidrel and do an IUI. 8 hours later my RE called and said they didn’t like my blood work and they canceled the trigger and IUI. Well guess what? We still had sex and now I am pregnant. I am on progesterone to maintain my lining so you should call and ask about that if you haven’t already. 

Good luck!

It sounds like they are being conservative since the reality is all fertility drugs have some pretty awful side effects. Every RE is different, doesn’t make it wrong. If you are concerned in the meantime you could try some natural supplements that are said to help. I took maca root twice a day and red raspberry leaf capsules to help build my lining.

@jholler25:My doctor has me on B6 which helps with progesterone too! I’m not sure if that would help build up the lining too (since progesterone is the main hormone that does that) but it’s worth looking into!

@jholler25:I’d start taking it! It couldn’t hurt right?

I totally thought about the basically being certified to be a specialist thing the other day lol. Apparently it’s something I’m passionate about haha
