The endometrial tissue is designed to go through changes over time. The pattern of buildup and breakdown that either prepares it for a fertile egg, or breaks down to become menses is what it does. The term inactive means it is not doing much, benign metaplasia just means there are some normal transitional cells seen. It is a normal study.

All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, there is no cancer or any other significant abnormality. Wish you good health!
