An ultrasound of my uterus showed my uterus is large10.8x4.2x5.5 and endometrial lining was 9.0 mm and a simple cyst in my right ovary is this normal?

Is a 3 mm endometrial lining on CD 26 of a 27 day cycle normal? We're trying to conceive and the result of the thickness of the lining suprised me.

Is a 3 mm endometrial lining on CD 26 of a 27 day cycle normal? We're trying to conceive and the result of the thickness of the lining suprised me.

Abit thin: That is a little thinner than one would expect on CD 26 if you were ovulating. CD 26 is also not a typical day that an Obgyn would assess the endometrial thickness to make some determination about a patients fertility. Not strong conclusions can be drawn from this isolated data point. Each case would need to be analyzed individually ...Read more

Do I need treatment now, no symptoms, 1 yr ago endometrial lining thickened to 39 mm, uterus enlarged to 13 weeks size with lots of small fibroid?

Do I need treatment now, no symptoms, 1 yr ago endometrial lining thickened to 39 mm, uterus enlarged to 13 weeks size with lots of small fibroid?

Maybe: If had a biopsy a year ago and your doctor ruled out cancer as cause of your thickened lining, and you're not having any irregular bleeding, then you might be okay. An endometrial biopsy is only good for 1 year, so it may be time to discuss any uterine conditions with your doctor again. Lots of small fibroids often do not need to be operated on, especially close to menopause. Call dr for appt. ...Read more

How/why does a polyp keep your endometrial lining from shedding?

How/why does a polyp keep your endometrial lining from shedding?

Blockage: A polyp sits atop the endometrial and usually partially made of endometrial material. When the endo lining sheds, the part under the polyp cannot shed as the polyp blocks its. Think of rain falling on a field with a huge thick tree setting in the middle. The rain cannot really get to the ground under the tree as it is blocked by the tree; sample principle with the polyp. ...Read more

What're the chances of a very thick endometrial lining being cancerous in a post menopausal woman?

Need a biopsy: Although a thickened endometrial lining can be one of the findings in uterine cancer, this finding alone does not confer a diagnosis of cancer. Typically, a post-menopausal woman will present with vaginal bleeding to her ob/gyn. Her doctor will then perform an endometrial biopsy to confirm or negate a diagnosis of cancer. ...Read more

My daughter is 11 years with thickening of endometrial lining measuring 16mm. Is it normal. Her lmp was on 28/7/16?

Yes: Early in puberty the cycles are dominated by estrogen which stimulates endometrial buildup. Egg release is not consistent in the first year, but is followed by progesterone formation that triggers the cycle when conception does not occur. If no egg release occurs, a longer interval is expected but a heavier cycle would eventually occur. Up to 90 days is noted between cycles in normal young women. ...Read more

Pathology report says prominent thickened Endometrial lining at 1.5cm. Is this bad? What does it mean by prominent thickened endo lining?

There are a couple: Of ways to measure the thickness of the endometrial lining. By ultrasound or by endometrial biopsy. Most agree that a thickness of 1 cm or 10 mm is classified as "thickened." Especially in older women, a thickened endometrium may suggest cancer, but most often non-cancerous causes explain it: normal hormonal changes, obesity, diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome. Your Doctor will advise. ...Read more

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Not really: The paragard iud is hormone free. It works by creating a toxic environment for sperm preventing fertilization. Because it is hormone free it has no real effect on the endometrial lining. It does not thin it out like Mirena (levonorgestrel) but also does not thicken it either. ...Read more

Endometrial lining 11.88. 26yr female hx mod endometriosis. Lining on us shaped like an arrow with a tale is this normal? Feel preg nothing on ultras

Normal: The shape you describe is most likely normal but obviously cannot say with any certainty without seeing the images. As for "feeling pregnant", have you taken a pregnancy test? A urine pregnancy test is far more accurate at diagnosing early pregnancy than an ultrasound. In a woman of childbearing age at the end of her cycle an endometrial thickness of 7-16mm is considered normal, btw. ...Read more

I had 4 induced abortions. No complications, menstrual is normal have had 3 miscarriages after. Did I mess up my endometrial lining? & is that fixable

No: It isn't the endometrium that is the source of the repeated miscarriages. It is either a genetic issue or cervical incompetence. The cervix may be opening too soon in the 2nd trimester and may need to have a suture placed (cerclage).Genetic issues can be tested at the time of the miscarriage with the products of conception or later with blood testing (TORCH titer). ...Read more

Dr could only get scant sample of endometrial lining for biopsy. Had problem getting through cervix because curved. Extremely painful. Is this common?

Dr could only get scant sample of endometrial lining for biopsy. Had problem getting through cervix because curved. Extremely painful. Is this common?

Cervical stenosis: It is very common for the gynecologist to have difficulty inserting a biopsy instrument through the cervix when a patient is in menopause. This is called cervical stenosis. If the doctor could get the instrument into the uterine cavity and only retrieved scant tissue, that would imply that the lining of the uterus is atrophic or thin. If there is any question, you should have an ultrasound. ...Read more

I took loestrin for 5 years, which I know thins endometrial lining, how long will it take after stopping the pill for my lining to return normal?

Very soon: When you stop oral contraceptives, most women get their cycle back a month later.
