Stubborn, thin lining? We can help.
The uterine lining is only as healthy as the whole menstrual cycle. If there is not a steady increase of estrogen during the first half of the cycle, the lining will suffer. Supporting the menstrual cycle holistically encourages the body to respond to natural hormonal cues so that each stage of the cycle can trigger the next important phase.
Part of conventional fertility treatment requires shutting down the reproductive system or blocking hormone receptors so the ovaries and brain “think” they have to develop follicles. The strategy is one of “forcing” verses “supporting”. Many women respond positively to the “forcing” method, others do not.
When the lining doesn’t respond appropriately to exogenous estrogen, FET cycles get delayed, canceled or embryos are transferred in a less than ideal uterine environment.
Listen to your body.
We know cycle manipulation is a necessary part of FET preparation. We believe women should understand that they have treatment options that help their bodies accept and respond more favorably to FET protocols. Chinese medical treatment does just this by supporting pathways and processes in the body so that healthy uterine proliferation can occur.
