Is a weakly proliferative endometrium concerning?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Wendy Askew
Obstetrics and Gynecology 24 years experience
Only in postmenopaus: The endometrium is the lining of the uterus, and it 'proliferates' during the 1st 1/2 of the menstrual cycle under the influence of the estrogen that a woman's body produces in the ovaries. It's a normal state of being for the lining during the 1st half of the cycle. Nothing to worry about.
