To evaluate the effects of tamoxifen in patients with repeated unresponsive thin endometrium (<6 mm). Three women showed recurrent thin endometrium <6 mm during frozen embryo transfer endometrial preparation. Tamoxifen was added in the successive cycles as an adjunct. The endometrium was found to build up more than the target 7 mm in all the women with tamoxifen therapy. Two of the women conceived. In frozen-thawed embryo transfer cycles with recurrent thin endometrium, addition of tamoxifen helps achieve target endometrial thickness.
