Endometrial thickening

In 10-15% of patients, thickening of the endometrium (> 16 mm by ultrasound or MRI at end of treatment) was observed with ulipristal acetate by the end of the first 3-month treatment course. In subsequent treatment courses, endometrial thickening was less frequently observed (4.9% and 3.5% of patients by the end of second and fourth treatment course, respectively). The endometrial thickening  reverses when treatment is stopped and menstrual periods resume.
