In “Romance Without Regret” Jason Evert points out that the Pill causes the endometrium wall to gradually become thinner.
He says that it is typically 5-13 mm thick, but can eventually become only 1 mm thick due to the effects of the Pill. The thin lining can cause the embryo to not implant well, resulting in a miscarriage.
I was wondering…1 mm is still a pretty good thickness for such a small thing to attach to. So I was going to ask about that.
Before I did, I thought I’d learn about it some. What I learned was the cells of the infant that attach to the endometrium are called the “Blastocyst.” And the Blastocyst is about 70 - 100 cells.
It may be called something different the moment implantation onto the endometrium occurs. But still…a 70-100 cell structure is implanting onto the endometrium.
The endometrial lining goes through a cycle (~28 days) and the lining grows thick as fertilization of an egg becomes possible so it will be ready for the blastocyst to implant. It grows and sheds based on hormone levels such as estrogen and progesterone.
So…I’m thinking that the Pill causes improper levels of estrogen and progesterone, which result in the endometrium not being fully regenerated when it’s supposed to be, resulting in poor environment for implantation.
Is that right??
