What endometrial thickness is needed for IVF?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 05/12/2021

Ideally for an embryo transfer after an IVF cycle, the endometrium should be about 8 mm thick and have a trilamellar appearance on ultrasound.

However, an endometrial thickness of 8 mm does not guarantee that the embryo will implant. Similarly, gestation is also possible with thinner endometria, although these endometria result in lower pregnancy rates.

Suggested for you: Why is the endometrium important in assisted reproduction?.
