Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Implantation of the embryo depends on multiple factors.A thin endometrial lining reduces the chances of a successful implantation.6mm is definitely on the lesser side.Ideally,the endometrial thickness should be at least 8-9 mm for implantation to occur.However,sometimes oestrogen supplementation does help in increasing the endometrium thickness.You should consult your doctor if you are under infertility treatment.As i have said,multiple factors are at play here. A complete hormone profile should be done along with other tests to find out the key problem.

Well,the percentage varies between countries all over the world.But studies show,that at least 20% infertility cases have thin endometrium as a factor.As i have stated ,multiple factors are at work here.If you have tried naturally for at least 6months,and failed to conceive,then you and your partner can go in for a complete evaluation.It has been seen that IVF has had success(20-27%) in such cases.
