What does it mean for the endometrium: Normal thickness but of somewhat heterogenous echo texture and with several echgenic foci with in?

Endometrial contents: This means that the sonogram detected something inside of the cavity but that they were unable to determine exactly what it was. This is typically followed up with an endometrial biopsy and some method to evaluate the cavity. The two most common approaches are a sonohystogram or a hysteroscopy ...Read more

I have a 1.2 CM endometrium thickness during my ultrasound 4 days after my menstration. Is it normal? I am 33 years old, married with 1 daughter (5 yo

Yes: A 1.2 cm endometrium at your age and after a cycle is upper limits of normal but it is normal. More important is the reason for the ultrasound. If it was for abnormal bleeding and the only abnormality is the endometrium than more needs to be done to evaluate the problem. ...Read more

My uterus measures 80*33*32 mm. Is this normal size? Am I pregnant? Endometrium thickness is 4mm, Can I be pregnant?

My uterus measures 80*33*32 mm. Is this normal size? Am I pregnant? Endometrium thickness is 4mm, Can I be pregnant?

Confirm pregnancy: With endometrial thickness of 4mm, it is very unlikely there can be pregancy.
The endometrial thickness need to be at least 7 to 8 mm for implantation to occur.
Secondly once there is implementation, a fetal sac or fetal pole which is true sign of pregancy will develop.
Good luck. ...Read more

I'm 46 my pelvic sono states my uterus 7.9 cm and endometrium is 12.0mm thickness trace hypoechogenicity within fundal endometrium. Is this normal?

It depends: On other symptoms and factors. Your age and pregnancy and menstrual status are important, The size is at the upper limit of normal, the thickness is at or above the upper limit of normal. If you are in your late 30s or 40s and near menopause, my first suspicion would be trhat you have uterine fibroids which are causing some abnormal bleeding. But then I am guessing without much clinical info ...Read more

My endometrium lining is 17mm, do I need to undergo d&c procedure? Or this is normal?

My endometrium lining is 17mm, do I need to undergo d&c procedure? Or this is normal?

No! Only consider if: Tumor or uncontrolled bleeding. Thickening is a result of ongoing estrogen stimulation, in preparation for pregnancy, implantation ; blood supply to support placenta. 17 mm is quite thick; a few courses of bc pills can suppress if judged appropriate. Best to seek out and work with someone worthy of your trust. Docs paid for d;c, poorly for better assistance, buyer beware, as always. ...Read more

How much time it will take for endometrium to become thick nd normal naturally? Mine was 5mm on 12th day of my cycle.

A little small: I usually like to see at least 6 mm lining but prefer 10. This can be affected by medications and different medical conditions that affect your hormone balance. So, your 5 mm lining is a little thin. Your doctor can adjust your meds if you are trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

Is it ok (normal) to have diagnosis of fragments of proliferative endometrium while on tamoxifen.

Is it ok (normal) to have diagnosis of fragments of proliferative endometrium while on tamoxifen.

Yes: It's common to have this diagnosis while on tamoxifen. I'm sure your physician is monitoring your endometrial lining via biopsy or D&C to make sure that you aren't at increased risk of endometrial hyperplasia or pre-cancer of the endometrium. Proliferative endometrium describes the 'stage' of the endometrium when it was biopsied. Proliferative is first part of cycle, dominated by estrogen. ...Read more

Abnormal menstration and an endometrium of 4.8mm. 38 and had a child. Ablation recommended. Is this normal?

Complex ablation?: Endometrial ablation is recommended to those who have irregular and heavy bleeding and an endometrial biopsy rules out endometrial/uterine pre or actual cancers. Your question is complex as it depends upon whether you have completed your family or not, and if you prefer other definitive solutions like hysterectomy. Talk to your GYN MD and get a 2nd opinion after exploring all options. ...Read more

Dr last month I did pelvic scan. It shows endometrium 1.2cm. Weather it is normal. Please explain. It is gud r bad?

Endometrial thicknes: If you are ovulating and maybe the scan was done during mid- late cycle this finding is normal. If you are not menstruating regularly or not at all this findiing is not normal and needs to be evaluated further. If you are having irregular heavy menses you may need a sonohysterogram (ultrasound with saline infused in the uterus) to ascertain the prescence or abscence of polyp or myoma in the cavity. ...Read more

Have 28-29 days cycle. Follicle monitoring results: cd8 - follicle size 11mm, endometrium 4mm. Cd10 - follicle size 17mm, endometrium 6mm. Normal?

Have 28-29 days cycle. Follicle monitoring results: cd8 - follicle size 11mm, endometrium 4mm. Cd10 - follicle size 17mm, endometrium 6mm. Normal?

Most likely: Follicle size is a little large on cd10 and endometrium is a little thin. We don't normally monitor people on those days. What's more important is what cd12 ultrasound will look like. The endometrium should be 8mm or so and the follicle greater than 17 on that day and if so, you most likely are experiencing normal ovulation. Don't over troubleshoot - variation in cycles is common. Good luck. ...Read more

Period came one week late; it's been 5 days since I had an u/s, 11mm endometrium. Is it normal to have light, red spotting instead of a "normal" flow?

Period came one week late; it's been 5 days since I had an u/s, 11mm endometrium. Is it normal to have light, red spotting instead of a "normal" flow?

Delayed ovulation: This is usually caused by infrequent (not regular) ovulation. The longer you go between periods, the thicker the uterine lining builds. So when you finally do have your menses it can be heavy and long. The spotting you are having is probably not a real period. It sounds like the lining is slowly breaking down and leaking out. BCPs can keep your menses regular. You should check pregnancy test. ...Read more
