does anyone know anything about "thin endometrium" (womb lining)?

I'm getting pretty specialised here and not expecting any replies really but thought i'd throw it out there just in case someone knows about it. I was wondering how it is diagnosed. there is a bit about it on the net (it is linked to miscarriage) but i can't find any info about how they diagnose it.

can they measure it by ultrasound?

don't know! none of the drs i've seen have ever mentioned it to me and yet if you google it, it is known to be linked to miscarriage. as i get very very light periods i am just wondering in a totally uninformed kind of way whether it might be relevant in my case.

I don't know whether this thread will help a bit here

Thin endometrium can be identified by ultrasound scan. Ideally the thickness would be at least 8mm by the time of ovulation.

Progesterone pessaries can support growth in thickness.
