What does it mean when your uterus lining is thinning?
Primary reason for a thin endometrial lining is lack of adequate estrogen. Your doctor can check if the estrogen level in your body is adequate with a blood test. If it is below the normal range, you can replenish your estrogen level in the form of tablets, injections or patches.
Is thin uterine lining normal?
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.
What causes thinning of the uterus wall?
Endometrial atrophy (thinning of the uterine lining): The endometrium is the tissue that lines your uterus. It responds to hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Low hormone levels after menopause can cause it to get too thin.
What causes the decrease in thickness of uterine lining?
These female hormones play essential roles in menstruation and pregnancy. During ovulation, estrogen thickens the endometrium, while progesterone prepares the uterus for pregnancy. If conception doesn’t occur, progesterone levels drop. The progesterone drop triggers the uterus to shed its lining as a menstrual period.
What are the common causes of a thin uterus lining?
Amenorrhea (absent periods)
