Endometrial thickness on day ninth


Q: I will be turning 35 in a few months and am about to start trying to conceive. I have seen my doctor for a preconception visit and had a trans-vaginal sonogram to rule out any potential problems. The ovaries and uterus looked good with high antral follicle count for my age. The doctor did mention however that my endometrial lining was rather thin, just above 4 mm. Is that bad and will it affect my ability to conceive? I was on day 9 of my cycle, my periods last rather long - around 5-6 days. They are heavy. The average length of my cycle is 29 days. Is there a reason for concern?
