Poor or thin endometrium is another factor related to infertility in women. The uterus, which is the home of the baby as it grows for 9 months, is made up of 3 layers. The innermost layer that first comes into an embryo as it comes to attach itself to the uterus, is called the endometrium. A thick and healthy endometrium is crucial for a healthy menstrual cycle and for successful pregnancy.
The health of the uterine lining, or the endometrium depends on the vital levels of estrogen. A lack of estrogen can result into thinning of the the endometrium below its safe level of 8mm.
Causes of Poor or Thin Endometrium
- Low levels of estrogen
- Restricted blood flow
- Abnormal menstrual cycle
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Uterus adhesions
- Long term use of birth control pills
The condition is usually identified by a doctor upon examination, with common symptoms ranging from irregular periods to painful periods.
