Progestin is used to thin out uterine lining. But I passed 1 inch thick piece of lining after over dosing myself with progestin for 3 weeks. Why?

Can I opt NOT to get the D&C in combo with a hysteroscopy/polypectomy and just have the two without a d&c as I don't want my uterine lining scrape?

Confirm with doctor: The surgical plan will depend on why the doctor is doing the surgery in the first place. It you have a simple polyp then a D and C is usually not done. If the doctor feels that tissue sampling is needed for whatever medical problem you have prompting the surgery then a D and C may be warranted. Each surgery must be individualized. ...Read more

I understand that during your period, the uterine lining sheds. I check every month and noticed this month it didn't come out. What could that mean?

Lining of the uterus: When a woman has a regular period the lining of the uterus always sheds, whether her normal periods are light and short or long and heavy. Some women see just blood with their period, others see what looks like tissue or blood clots. Either way, if it is a normal period for her, she shed the lining of the uterus. Bleeding that is abnormal may not be shedding the lining. ...Read more
