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

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

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

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

I am 42 just had a pelvic us and the endometrial lining measured 12.5mm (1.25cm) and it was 5 days after my cycle. Is this normal?

Yes: If your endometrial lining was 12.5 mm on the fifth day of your menstrual cycle then the lining it's too thick and you should be evaluated for conditions such as endometrial polyp, hyperplasia and others. ...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. In a small percentage of women it can take longer and if it does not come in two months, I would see your gyne. I would also do a pregnancy test at that point if there is a chance you could be pregnant. ...Read more

I've 28-29 days cycle, today is cd8 and what is the normal size in millimeters of dominant follicle and endometrial lining at this stage of cycle?

Follicle sizes: During this phase of your cycle, the follicles are usually 8 - 12 mm in diameter and may grow to ~ 18 - 20 mm before you ovulate. The lining should be ~ 4 - 6 mm as it grows to the maximal thickness before you ovulate. ...Read more

Endometrial Cancer. Endometrial biopsy normal, lining is at 15. What does this mean?

I don't: Understand: do you have endometrial cancer? Then the lining and the biopsy are irrelevant. Are you be tested for endometrial CA? The normal biopsy is reassuring, the thickness is not specific. Glad to give a better answer if you clarify what you are asking. ...Read more

If transvaginal US says my endometrial lining is 0.8cm (8mm) during mid proliferative stage (cycle day 10). Is that normal for premenopausal women?

Pretty normal: The endometrial thickness varies throughout the cycle. It also depends on age and if any medications are taken. The evaluation in any one individual needs to take in account the entire picture. Consider scheduling follow up with the doctor who ordered it for more precise evaluation ...Read more

On thin side: A lining less than 7mm is thin. However there isn't any data that show a for sure correlation between thin lining and inability to get pregnant. If someone is having trouble conceiving and they are found to have a thin lining sometimes this will warrant further treatment and evaluation ...Read more

Possible Endometrial cancer. Endometrial biopsy normal. Hysteroscopy D&C recommended because lining is 15. What is this suspect of?

Possible Endometrial cancer. Endometrial biopsy normal. Hysteroscopy D&C recommended because lining is 15. What is this suspect of?

Endometrial polyp: If the biopsy was negative, chances are minimal that you have cancer. Most likely, you have a polyp causing the thickened endometrium. The hysteroscopy and D&C will show what is definately going on and allow removal of the tissue. It will also confirm the biopsy results, likely showing no cancer. ...Read more

What does it mean to have endometrial cells on the uterine lining? I am 45 and had just finished my cycle when I had ultrasound and pap normal

See below: Endometrial cells are what make up the uterine lining, so this is a normal comment. If on the other hand, you are having abnormal bleeding (as a reason for the ultrasound that you had performed) and there are endometrial cells on a pap smear, then you definitely need further evaluation of the uterine lining to rule out pre-cancerous changes called hyperplasia. ...Read more

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

Can a polyp keep endometrial lining from shedding? U/S showed normal ovaries but endo stripe of 19. Biopsy only showed polyp. Bled 3 mo now/bad cramps

Yes: It may be time for a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or sono HSG to ensure there isn't another process occurring. There are many causes of uterine outlet obstruction.....some more serious than others. Begin with a pap smear, See your ob/gyn of course, before doing anything else. ...Read more

I am 55 with pmb. Endometrial thickness on us was 9mm. Endo biopsy was done showing atrophic endometrium. Lining is supposed to be less than 4mm. What is the next step?

Your Gyn can help: Your doctor should be guiding you further. If you do not have any abnormal bleeding, then you do not need to rush into anything further as you have already done the biopsy of the endometrium. Serial ultrasounds at 6-12 month intervals can guide further action, if any needed. ...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
