Hysteroscopy: May be considered. The ultrasound findings can be caused by an endometrial polyp (which can bleed). The atrophic endometrium findings can be seen when biopsy did not include the polyp or area of thickening on the ultrasound.

Your Gyn can help: Your doctor should be guiding you further. If you do not have any abnormal bleeding, then you do not need to rush into anything further as you have already done the biopsy of the endometrium. Serial ultrasounds at 6-12 month intervals can guide further action, if any needed.
