Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

Yes this is normal thickness provided there are no other changes. Endometrial thickness can be higher at different stages of menstruation.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

If you’re having difficulties conceiving, you should see your GP for full check up.

I thought 0.5 is too thin? I don't know if it 0.5mm or 0.5cm??
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Can I conceive with this thickness? It's not perimenopause is it?
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

2-5 mm is normal thickness but this goes up at different stages.
You can conceive provided there are no other issues that might prevent pregnancy.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
it is too low then for 2mm normal?
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Mine is 0.5 what can I do to increase this
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

If you’re having regular periods as normal, then it is not premenopausal.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

Endometrial thickness of 0.5 mm is normal. You can’t and shouldn’t change it as there is no need for that.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
I had a 3 month blip of no period but started 3 weeks ago so hoping I will get another period as due in roughly 2 to 5 days going off my normal regular cycles
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

If you had a scan and it did not show anything abnormal, then you do not need to worry.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 17 days ago.

That should be fine

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
