See below: Endometrial cells are what make up the uterine lining, so this is a normal comment.

I've read that lutera not only suppresses ovulation but also thins the uterine lining. When I stop taking it will my uterus go back to normal?
Yes: Most oral contraceptive pills (ocps) thin the uterine lining. Think of it this way, many doctors will prescribe ocps to treat heavy menstrual bleeding because the pills work to keep the lining of the uterus thin; therefore, minimizing monthly blood loss. This does not damage the uterus. After discontinuing pills, your uterus will be normal. ...Read more

Your first period after starting pills, if they delayed your period, can lead to more bleeding than usual that can lead to clots, so this could be totally normal. Keep taking those pills daily to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more
My uterine lining is 4.2 at day 12, my cycle normally about 30-31, is the lining grow too slow? Can the embryo implant if my lining is 4.2 at day 12?
Had a pap smear on day 10 of menstration. Pap came back normal but shows endometrial cells on uterine lining. What does this mean? Going for a biopsy.
Likely okay: Typically, unless a woman is having irregular bleeding, endometrial cells on a pap aren't worrisome at all. That's based on a new recommendation for pap smear management. If you have irregular or heavy bleeding, doctor will want to rule out pre-cancer as cause, hence, biopsy of uterine lining. No harm in biopsy. Your doctor knows you best, so be sure to ask him/her why they have concerns for biops. ...Read more

Hcg 1419 @ 18 days past conception. Uterine lining is "quite thick" per doctor, 5cm corpus luteum cyst. Possible small gestational sac seen. Normal?
Endometrium at time of implantation can range from 7mm to 14mm. After implantation, the endometrium respond to estrogen and progesterone for growth.
Thus your endometrium of 17.4mm 3-4weeks gestation can be normal.
For reassurance, you will need:
1. Get qualitative hcg and repeat after 2days for normal rise.
2. Get a follow up scan to confirm normal early fetal growth.
Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosis is unclear: If you still have regular menses, the lining of your normal uterus will appear thick or thin on ultrasound (not "atrophic") depending on the time at which your exam was done.

Uterine lining: The thickness of the endometrium varies throughout the menstrual cycle. It is thickest a week after ovulation (week before menses), and thinnest after a period. It grows under the influence of hormones secreted by the ovary during the normal cycle. One always has the chance to ovulate with PCOS, and there is no way to predict whether you will in a given cycle. ...Read more
