Normal: After menstruation is over the lining of the endometrium begins to proliferate and grow. In this phase it is called Proliferative Endometrium. After ovulation it becomes Secretory Endometrium because it changes in appearance due to the secretion of progesterone. It is a description of normal endometrium after ovulation. Best wishes!
