Thin Endometrium

The Uterus, which carries the fetus in females throughout the pregnancy, it has three layers – innermost, middle and outer layer. The innermost layer of the uterus is called Endometrium. A thick and salutary Endometrium is crucial for normal menstrual cycle and successful pregnancy. A thick and healthy Endometrium, also known as Uterine Lining, goes a long way in ensuring effective implantation of fertilized eggs inside the uterus. Later, during the pregnancy, it also nourishes the fetus.

Estrogen hormone is extremely vital in keeping Endometrium thick, salutary and blood-rich. Inadequate level of estrogen results in thin Endometrium. If a Uterine Lining or Endometrium is a minimum of 8 mm thick, it is considered satisfactory. Anything less than 7 mm is called Thin Endometrium.

Causes of Thin Endometrium

Inadequate blood flow


Amenorrhea/Abnormal Periods

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

D&C or any pelvic surgeries

Pregnancy in Thin Endometrium

If women are grappling with issues related to pregnancy, like being unable to get pregnant or having difficulty in holding a pregnancy, they must get their estrogen level and thickness of Endometrium checked. Uterine Lining must be at least 8 mm thick for successful implantation of the fetus. If it (Uterine Lining) is thin, implantation does not take place that culminates in the failure of pregnancy. Hence one needs to get treatment for Thin Endometrium to become pregnant.

Treatments for Thin Endometrial Lining

Natural Treatment

There are various herbs and natural supplements that come in handy in maintaining estrogen level which in turn benefits Endometrium. Asparagus Racemosus, Dong Quai, Red Clover, Royal Jelly, etc. are some of the herbs which are conducive for regulating estrogen level.

Fertility Massage

Castor Oil Packs

Acupuncture and Moxibustion

Acupuncture is a mechanism that is deployed to alleviate stress levels and negative energies that are accumulated in a human’s body. Persistent stress can cause shrinking of Endometrium and hence it is essential to alleviate stress levels. Moxibustion is burning Mugwort herb. It is then put on the needles of Acupuncture and is instrumental in shoring up damaged tissues and removal of scars.


Hysteroscopy helps to look inside the uterine cavity and allow a surgeon to evaluate the endometrial conditions. Intrauterine adhesions can also be removed if present and causing thin Endometrium.
