    Thin endometrial lining during frozen embryo cycles: a case-control study of risk factors and natural history

    Authors: , , ,

Abstract

Objective: To identify predictors of thin endometrial lining in the first frozen embryo transfer cycles and to characterize the natural history of this condition over subsequent cycles.

Design: Retrospective case-control study

Conclusions: This study shows that prognosis after a diagnosis of thin endometrial lining is favorable. Lower weight and thinner fresh cycle lining are predictors of thin endometrial lining in FET cycles. Most importantly, women with a diagnosis of thin endometrial lining have similar live birth rates as those with adequate endometrial lining, although their time to achieve live birth is slightly longer.

Keywords: Thin endometrial lining, IVF outcomes, endometrial thickness, live birth
