Thin Lining on Clomid
I just completed my third IUI with Clomid. My lining on the day of the HCG trigger was only 4.8. Last cycle it was just over 6 and the previous cycle it was higher and in a normal range.

I have read numerous studies that say that pregnancy can not occur with a lining of less than 6mm. Do I have any chance of getting pregnant this month?

Dear Shannon

One of the main problems of Clomid usage is the adverse effect it has on the endometrium and the consequent failure of implantation, as well as the risk of early miscarriages. In some cases an alternative drug such as Estrofem can be added to the treatment to thicken the lining.
