After being diagnosed with premature ovarian failure, it took me 2 years to embrace donor egg as my only option to expand my family. This journey has been a frustrating one. I have only been able to have one fresh ET because my lining was suboptimal. On my first fresh ET, my pregnancy test was postiive. I was elated !! ...but my beta levels plateau ~200 - 300. I was given an option for methotrexate to dissolve the pregnancy. I dont think my RE knew for sure where my pregnancy was. After healing, several subsequent attempts at frozen cycles were fruitless as my uterine lining was always 5 - 6 mm. I tried OCP/lupron, then OCP alone both rendering "thin" linings. As far as estrogen, I have taken all combinations of oral, vaginal, and injectable in an attempt to achieve a thicker lining. I have pushed my cycle out to 15 days of estrogen stimualtion to no avail. My most recent cycle (January) was preceded by one month of low dose "HRT" to supposedly prime the uterus, and then estrogen stimulation. After 13 days, my lining was 6.3 !! We decided to proceed with ET. Two weeks later, my pregnancy test was positive !! ....and now today, with a beta of 600, I have been diagnosed with an ectopic pregancy because the sac is outside my uterus. Need I say more.....I am completely frustrated. I finally get a point of thickness that was acceptable to my RE and then WHAM!!! I am told today that I have a life threatening condition.
How can I get my lining thicker? and Is there a number that correlates with successful pregnancy? Does this lining problem have something to do with POF?
