Hmmm.

I have never heard that pineapple thickened the lining. I understood it slightly thins the blood, making nutrients more readily able to travel to the uterine lining because they are carried on thinner blood. Same as taking the low dose Asperin. As a related aside, pineapple things the lining of the stomach.

Go Pharmacy Grade on everything. Creams, vitamins and tests. Seriously, in for a penny, in for a pound.

All in, Susan, all in.

Susan...I would suggest staring the cream the day after O -- that's wha they do at my clinc after IUI. And pineapple is also good for 14d after O . Thicken that lining whatever it takes.

I used it last cycle and it had no effect on my temps so I assume that means no effect on my progesterone level.

Susan,


What about using a natural progesterone cream on your own?
