Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

In brief: Not really

The paragard iud is hormone free.
It works by creating a toxic environment for sperm preventing fertilization. Because it is hormone free it has no real effect on the endometrial lining. It does not thin it out like Mirena (levonorgestrel) but also does not thicken it either.
