Lining Growth

I was wondering how much the uterine lining grows each day before ovulation. Thanks.

The rate of growth can be variable. The important thing is that it should be greater than 7 mm thick at the time of ovulation.
Good luck.

Dr Jacobs,

Thank you for your response. I have another question. If the uterine lining is not over 7, can an egg implant/try to implant or will it not? Is this when a chemical pregnancy takes place? If you have your HCG blood test would you still show a pregnancy? It would make sense to me that if you lining is not thick enough for implantation that an egg will not try to and your HCG test would be negative. Thanks for your input.

The data I have seen relate to SUCCESSFUL pregnancy. There is probably an implantation of an embryo in a bichemical pregnancy. Wheter the pregnancy is lost because the linig is not thick enough, or the pregnancy was not good is not known. Only 30% to 35% of the eggs a woman makes are capable of a SUCCESSFUL pregnancy.
Good luck.
