Obgyn evaluation: You will need to see an Obgyn. They may want to consider a sonohystogram or office hysteroscopy to see if a polyp is present. They may suggest oral contraceptives, Progesterone or a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD to help with the bleeding. A complete evaluation is needed to determine the cause and treatment. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a non secretory proliferative endometrium on 20th day after begining of period?

Endometrium: A proliferative pattern is the predominant endometrium seen before ovulation. After ovulation the pattern is typically secretory. You probably haven't ovulated this cycle. Ask your gyn if the pathologist did menstrual dating on the specimen. You may need a higher dose of Clomid (clomiphene) or other assistance with ovulation. ...Read more

Haven't had a period in 3 months. How thick should the endometrium be and should it be cause for worry? What is an easy way to check its thickness?

Ultrasound: Is the absolute best way to check endometrial thickness. There is no "should" about how thick, it depends why you skip periods: if hypogonadotropic the EM will be very thin (4 mm), if anovulatory it may be thick (15-16 mm.) Hope this helps. ...Read more

Follicle size 11x12mm on day 16 of cycle with endometrium thickness of 8.wht are the chances of getting a period? Day 35 and still no sign of period

Hard to say: An 11x12 mm follicle is either pre-or-post ovulatory, on CD 16 it could be either. If you check Progesterone level it will tell you for certain whether you ovulate or not. ...Read more

My endometrium thickness is 10mm with tiny cysts within. Earlier d&c was conducted at a thick of 5mm as period duration was 25-27 days. Is this norma?

My endometrium thickness is 10mm with tiny cysts within. Earlier d&c was conducted at a thick of 5mm as period duration was 25-27 days. Is this norma?

Unclear findings: The endometrial thickness is typically not important in women before menopause as it will vary depending on the menstrual cycle. A cystic appearance could indicate endometrial polyps. Since you have already had a D and C you could ask your doctor the pathology findings. A doctor will more details about your case to determine what has been done and what problem is being addressed ...Read more

My endometrium lining is 4.2mm at 5 days after period, is this normal?

My endometrium lining is 4.2mm at 5 days after period, is this normal?

Yes: In postmenopausal women an endometrial thickness less than 5 is normal. At your age of 29 an endometrial thickness is not particularly relevant. It will thicken as you go through the month and then thin out after the menstrual cycle. Unless you are going through ivf treatments or it is being measured for some other specific reason it is not clinically relevant. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a 5.0mm triple line endometrium 3 days after my period? What does triple line mean?

Is it normal to have a 5.0mm triple line endometrium 3 days after my period? What does triple line mean?

Endometrium lines: Yes you are describing a normal lining early in the cycle. The triple line refers to the normal ultrasound appearance of the 2 sides of the lining touching each other. One line is the back of one side of the lining, the other line where the 2 sides touch each other in the middle and the 3rd line the back of the other side of the uterus. 5mm is a perfectly normal thickness for early cycle. ...Read more

Diagnosed with disordered proliferative endometrium. Never had regular periods. Can I still have children?

Diagnosed with disordered proliferative endometrium. Never had regular periods. Can I still have children?

Endometrium? 's: If the production of estrogen in the ovary is irregular, the lining of the womb (endometrium) will grow and degenerate at different times, causing irregular bleeding. If ovulation does not occur, your "periods" will be just bleeding, and not predictable. If pregnancy is desired, ovulation induction may be necessary. See your gyn provider for advice on this. ...Read more

I haven't had periods for two months. Ultrsound today showed endometrium thickness at 29mm. I am 41yrs. What could this be?

Aging: As you age and approach menopause, it is possible that you'll skip periods and this might be the first sign of that as long as you are not pregnant. Other possible reasons for a missed period include a fluctuation of hormones related to thyroid problems commonly seen in middle aged women. Unless you're having heavy bleeding, I would continue to watch and track your cycles. ...Read more

I am 38 regluar periods and now two months no period tubes are tie and have16 mm endometrium thickness. What is this?

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...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

Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

Ask your OBGYN: It sounds like you've been examined and possibly Dx'd. You may have had recommendations for treatment like a D&C or other intervention. Discuss it and decide - I expect that would be the way to correct the problem. It's a good idea to relieve this for your overall well-being. Best wishes! ...Read more

Diagnosed with 1.9 CM thickened endometrium. I thought I started my period but I'm only spotting. Will I need any kind of medical procedure to fix It?

Diagnosed with 1.9 CM thickened endometrium. I thought I started my period but I'm only spotting. Will I need any kind of medical procedure to fix It?

Depends: 1.9cm thickened endometrium at your age is not bad. I do not have any information on your menstrual cycles. If your menstrual cycles are irregular you may need an endometrial biopsy to make sure you do not have endometrial hyperplasia (precancer cells in your endometrium). If you have normal regular cycles it is not that crucial. You may need an ultrasound at the end of your period to decide. ...Read more

Abdominal pain: If you are asking if your ultrasounds endometrial thickness is abnormal then the answer is no it is normal. One would not expect the endometrial thickness to be realted to pain though. If you are in pain then two weeks seems like a long time to wait. ...Read more

I'm 50, irregular period, endometrium is 11mm. If still do not have period for the next 2 months, will the endometrium lining become thinner by itself?

I'm 50, irregular period, endometrium is 11mm. If still do not have period for the next 2 months, will the endometrium lining become thinner by itself?

Usually not: When a woman is having irregular periods close to menopause it is common for the lining to not shed completely. This leaves thick lining which you have. Generally this needs cyclic Progesterone pills for several cycles to get it to all shed. This is done to prevent prolonged bleeding and decrease chance of abnormal cells. - endometrial hyperplasia. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 3 days ago & my endometrium is 1.7mm. My period isn't due until about 10 days. Does this mean I could be pregnant.

I had unprotected sex 3 days ago & my endometrium is 1.7mm. My period isn't due until about 10 days. Does this mean I could be pregnant.

Mm or cm?: 1.7mm is an extremely thin lining. I highly doubt you are pregnant with that thin of a lining. Did you mean 1.7cm? Why were they measuring your lining by sonogram anyway? Was it an incidental finding (i.e. they were looking for something else). I recommend checking a pregnancy test 2 weeks after the time of intercourse. ...Read more
