Thanks for posting your query.
Embryos need to implant in the Endometrium, and an optimal Endometrium is thick and Trilaminar. The fertility problem arises when there is a poor Endometrium or a thin uterine lining. This could be because of low estrogen levels, poor blood flow or damaged Endometrium.
The cause needs to be investigated with investigations like serum estradiol levels and is then treated accordingly.
Since your endometrium is only marginally thin, you should respond to oestradiol valerate. Vaginal vasodilators ( NTG patches) also improve the blood supply and thus help in increasing the thickness. You can get the appropriate drugs prescribed from your infertility specialist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for ur reply madam.
In my histopathology report it is mentioned as follows
Specimen : Endometrial currettings

Gross: Multiple gray brown soft tissues fragment measuring 1 X 1.5cm.

Microscopy: Multiple sections studied shows tubular endometrial glands lined by cubo-columnar cells with basally placed nuclei with stratification, surrounded by closely packed stromal cells with the area of haemorrage.

Impression: sections show features of proliferative phase.

And in my follicular study report it is mentioned that endometrium is regular.
today is my 13th day. thickness is 5.9mm trilaminar.

Is this represents damaged endometrium?

Thanks for writing again.
Your histopathology report shows a normal endometrium. There are no traces of any infection or damage. Decreased estrogen levels or a decreased vascularity- blood flow seem to be the likely cause.
Hope my answer is helpful.
