    Default Provera and uterine lining - so confused!

    Ok this is probably a super novice question but I am really confused about the effect Provera has on the uterine lining. When you take Provera to induce a period, it sheds the lining, right? But then doesn't a thin lining make conception difficult? Is this why you couldn't take Provera soon after a natural period - because the lining needs time to build up again? Or does it not really matter how short your cycles are?

    Provera is just for periods not conception. Your period is the shdding of the lining so nothing will be there. It's when your midcycle that the lining builds up again and then sheds during your next period.

    Right - but how long does your uterine lining need to build up? What happens if you induce a period while your lining is still thin? Does that mean ovulation won't occur even with clomid?

    It takes on average 28 days for the lining to build back up.

    Some say that clomid thins out your lining, but you have to take it in order to see if it'll do that to you.

    Provera doesnt thin lining.
