D&C: With hysteroscopy would be the next step, chances are the opening of the uterus (cervix) is stenosed(blocked) at its inner opening- happens often after ablations. Tissue/blood fill up the cavity and aren't passing well through the blockage. Hysteroscopy D&C can open this up and get a good look to rule out other issues, once in awhile can be something worse.

Not enough info: I'm assuming there is concern regarding the thickened uterus but we don't know enough about things like risk factors. This is too complicated for a 400 character answer. She needs a tissue diagnosis one way or another. See a good gynecologist and don't waste time on a site like this.
