Myomectomy: Do nothing if you are asymptomatic. If you have pain and/or bleeding try ibuprofen. If you are having trouble getting pregnant, myomectomy may be indicated. If you have no desire to have children, have 8 days of bleeding a month or if you have severe pelvic pain 10 of 10 consider laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy.

Do these endometrial implants or endometriosis act like normal endometrium inside the uterus?

Do these endometrial implants or endometriosis act like normal endometrium inside the uterus?

Not exactly: Although endometriosis tissue has the same components as the endometrium the behavior is different. Inside the uterus, the lining sheds itself monthly in an organized way. Endometriosis on the contrary, results in a festering inflammation that can cause pain, infertility and adhesions. ...Read more

When is best time during menstrual cycle to have a vaginal ultrasound to look at endometrium and inside uterus In terms of looking for fibroids?

When is best time during menstrual cycle to have a vaginal ultrasound to look at endometrium and inside uterus In terms of looking for fibroids?

Anytime: There is no "best" time to look for fibroids in the menstrual cycle as they can be seen throughout the cycle. The endometrium grows more towards the end of the cycle, but the sonogram examiner will already have accounted for that growth by asking for a LMP.(last menstrual period) unless it is excessive. ...Read more

I had an ablation that lasted 2 years. Now I have thickening of the endometrium and a swollen uterus. What does this mean?

I had an ablation that lasted 2 years. Now I have thickening of the endometrium and a swollen uterus. What does this mean?

Uterine lining: I presume you are having periods. At your young age all the parts are still working and any lining in your uterus is responding by growing. An ablation doesn't necessarily destroy all the lining and bleeding will persist. ...Read more

Retroverted uterus 
Pcos 
Planning on conceiving ?

Not too thick: An 8-9 mm endometrial thickness is not much for someone your age. Discuss with your Obgyn the results. The term heterogeneous could imply an endometrial polyp. Your doctor can determine if further testing with a sonohystogram is warranted or not. ...Read more

What does "heterogeneity of echotexture" mean in relation to endometrium (or uterus?) from a pelvic/transvaginal ultrasound?

What does "heterogeneity of echotexture" mean in relation to endometrium (or uterus?) from a pelvic/transvaginal ultrasound?

Description.: Heterogeneity describes the muscular part of the uterus in this case. It means that the expected appearance (all of it looks the same or homogeneous) is replaced by an appearance wherein the muscular part of the uterus has a varied (heterogenous) appearance. Typical causes are multiple small fibroids and adenomyosis (ingrowth of endometrial glandular tissue into the muscle). ...Read more

My transv.Us results were: endometrium is 24.5mm, my uterus is 116 x 52 x 78mm with a polyp 17 x 13 x 10 (& one smaller). What could this mean? 43yo

My transv.Us results were: endometrium is 24.5mm, my uterus is 116 x 52 x 78mm with a polyp 17 x 13 x 10 (& one smaller). What could this mean? 43yo

The lining : Is thick, mostly because the polyps are in the uterine cavity, thus it is thicker. Your uterus is somewhat enlarged but not huge. Uterine polyps are not like polyps in the colon, the risk of cancer on a uterine polyp is 1/200. The polyp is easy to remove w/ outpatient surgery called hysteroscopy. If negative endometrial biopsy could do ablation after, help bleeding, home same day, gd luc. ...Read more

Possible pregnancy if the result is from 0.78cm Triple Line Endometrium to 0.9-0.95cm Hyper-echoic Endometrium? Uterus:Anteverted 3.6x3.1x3cm

Possible pregnancy if the result is from 0.78cm Triple Line Endometrium to 0.9-0.95cm Hyper-echoic Endometrium?
Uterus:Anteverted 3.6x3.1x3cm

Maybe: The thickness of the endometrium does not tell you if you are pregnant or not. You can only diagnose pregnancy by ultrasound if you see a gestational sac with a pregnancy inside. Very early in pregnancy ultrasound won't see the pregnancy. Its better to do a pregnancy test (urine or blood) if you want to know if you are pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more
