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 minimum 8 mm thick, it is considered satisfactory. Anything less than 7 mm is called Thin Endometrium.

Causes of Thin Endometrium

Low Estrogen
Inadequate blood flow
Amenorrhea/Abnormal Periods
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
D&C or any pelvic surgeries
Intrauterine Adhesions
Excessive use of Clomiphene (Clomid)
Poor quality of endometrial tissue
Long term use of Birth control pills

Symptoms of Thin Endometrium

Issues pertaining to infertility
Abnormal or irregular Menstrual Cycle
Irregular or Painful Menses
Inadequate Menstrual bleeding

Pregnancy in Thin Endometrium

If women are grappling with issues related to pregnancy, like unable to get pregnant or 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 into the failure of pregnancy. Hence one needs to get treatment for Thin Endometrium to become pregnant.

Treatments available for Thin Endometrial Lining
