If the endometrium is thickened, is there pregnancy or is it because menstruation is coming?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 11/29/2021

The endometrium thickens so that implantation and pregnancy can take place. If there is no fertilization and implantation, even if the endometrium is thickened, there will be no pregnancy and menstruation will occur.

If the endometrium is still thick after some time or if it is excessively thick in the secretory phase, it may be endometrial hyperplasia and the doctor may prescribe hormonal treatment for the woman.
