Thin Endometrium: Its Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment


Hi, I am Dr. Sweta Gupta, Clinical Director
of Medicover Fertility. Today’s topic of discussion is Thin Endometrium:
Its symptoms, causes, and treatment. What is a thin endometrium or thin lining
of womb? The thickness of the endometrial lining is
important for women who are trying to conceive or undergoing IVF cycles. For an Embryo to go and implant in the endometrium,
it should be thick, receptive and nourishing. An endometrium thickness of 8 mm or above
is considered normal for successful embryo implantation. And a thickness of less than 7 mm is considered
as Thin Endometrium, which decreases the chances of a successful pregnancy. What are the symptoms of a thin endometrium? The symptoms of a thin endometrium are: Abnormal menstrual cycle Reduced menstrual bleeding Painful periods Infertility Or can be without any symptoms and detected
on Ultrasound. What are the causes of thin endometrium? The causes of a thin endometrial lining may
be due to: Low Oestrogen level Inadequate blood flow to the uterus Poor health of endometrial tissue like:
• Endometrial Tuberculosis • Pelvic infections D&C, or any other surgeries leading to adhesions
or scarring Use of birth control pills Use of fertility drugs like Clomid How can thin endometrium be treated? Proper evaluation of the endometrium should
be done and treated accordingly to make it thick and nourishing so that it can accept
an embryo. Firstly, an Ultrasound is done to check for
the thickness of the uterus. In some cases Hysteroscopy is required, If during the procedure we
find any intrauterine adhesions or scarring or adhesions then they are removed. Infections like endometrial tuberculosis,
or any other pelvic infections should be treated with medicines. Oestrogen tablets– Oestrogen hormone is
vital in maintaining the endometrial lining thick. So, a woman having a low oestrogen level canbe treated with oestrogen supplements either orally or as a suppository. In addition to this, some newer techniques
Granulocyte Colony Stimulating Factor, which is a growth hormone and its intrauterine
infusion has been seen to increase the thickness of the endometrial lining. Lastly If during an IVF cycle it is found that a
patient has a poor endometrium, then it is recommended to freeze all her embryos in that
cycle (FET), and transfer later once the endometrium has thickened and ready to accept the embryos. We can also check the receptivity of the endometrium
through a molecular diagnostic test which helps to locate the implantation window, so
a personalized embryo transfer can be done to reduce the chances of implantation failure. How can medicover fertility help women deal
