A 20-year-old female asked:

how is a thin womb lining thickened ???

Womb lining thickene: LebogangM ~ usually under the influence of hormones. Estrogen thickens, progesterone in the 2nd 1/2 of the cycle makes it mature and allows breakdown. Pregnancy and infection and neoplastic conditions are some others. Do not worry about this. All you should be doing is seeing the OBGYN once a year for an exam and a PAP smear and he will advise if any problems.thx

Abn placentation: There are several types of abnormal placentation. The most common is placenta previa, where the placenta sits over the cervix. There is also placenta accreta where the placenta has grown through the inner layer of the uterus into the outer muscular (myometrial) layer. Another type of placental abnormality is placental abruption, where the placenta separates from the uterus prematurely.

What could cause a bulky, retroverted uterus?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Elizabeth Hutson
Gynecology 28 years experience
Depends: A retroverted uterus just means the position of the uterus is tilted back towards the rectum. This is not abnormal. Bulky usually means the uterus is enlarged. The most common reasons are fibroids and adenomyosis. Both are benign conditions but if symptoms are bad treatment can be considered.
