Pretty thick: Around ovulation, we expect the endometrium to be about 8-10 mm (0.8-1.0 cm) thick at the most. 1.3 is pretty thick, and if the biopsy shows hyperplasia, it should be treated with progestin therapy.

Thick: The thickness of your lining depends on where you are in your cycle. Your need further evaluation.
