Already there: We like to see a minimum of 6 mm endometrial thickeningj. Thicker is better tho. And at only day 10 the lining should be even better. Also, the follicles should be 16mm and the 2 you have should grow to that as well. You are close.

Maybe : Based on the follicles size you might be surging in the next 2-4 days and the endometrial lining could be ready by then. If there is any concern about the lining you can undergo an evaluation. There are treatments , hormonal as well natural supplements , that can help the lining. Ideally we like the lining to be thicker but implantation is possible with an endometrial lining of 6 or even less.
