Is a thickened endometrium receptive?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 12/05/2019

Not necessarily. A receptive endometrium is one that has a thickness between 8-12 mm and a trilaminar aspect. An endometrial thickness greater than 13 mm is associated with a low implantation rate.

In addition, for an endometrium to be receptive it must have undergone several structural changes that can only be visualised after a biopsy and observation of the endometrial tissue under the microscope: presence of pinopods, endometrial glands, greater number of cells, etc.

Suggested for you: Uterine receptivity as a cause of sterility.
