hello there,

i have been on clomid for two cycles.. this cycle on 13th day i went for an utrasound and i was told i have two mature follicles in each ovary of sizes 18mm and 24mm. she was very certain that i will conceive this month but wen she saw my uterine lining which was only 4.1mm on day 13th of my cycle she said i will not conceive as my lining is too thin for implantation. i have heard that the lining grows as the cycle proceeds. is it too late to do something to make it grow? i really hope i get pregnant ..for example if i get pregnant will this pregnancy last or will i miscarry? has there been any cases where people have conceived with thin uterine lining? please advise me as im really worried ...

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the endometrial lining is thin, it will not be able to support the implantation and the fetal growth and development of placenta. Women can conceive with thin endometrial lining, but it usually results in a miscarriage.
Discuss with your gynecologist about getting you started on hormonal supplements after ovulation to help in implantation.
Alternatively get a hormonal analysis done to make sure the hormonal levels are normal. If they are found to be abnormal, first a correction would be required for them to be back to normal, before you can plan for pregnancy again to avoid chances of miscarriage and have a healthy pregnancy.
Take care.
