I have endometriosis and adenomyosis. Periods are irregular. Is withdrawal bleeding good for my body?
In some circumstance: Not sure exactly what you mean by "withdrawal bleeding". If you mean that having a menstrual flow by withdrawing the hormones Progesterone and estrogen - yes that is the normal menstrual cycle. A woman with endometriosis however in order to decrease her pain can stay on continuous hormones and thereby not have a withdrawal bleeding and thus avoid the cyclical pain. ...Read more
Still possible: Irregular periods are caused when your body's signals for ovulation and menstruation get confused by hormonal imbalances that can be related to your thyroid (TSH), pituitary (LH/FSH/prolactin), ovaries (estrogen/progesterone). Many external factors can affect the hormones: malnutrition, stress, obesity, for example. Diet and exercise can get ovulation back on track. See a GYN though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Missed last period, on day 18 of this cycle with heavy bleeding and big clotting. Transvaginal ultrasound shows endometrial lining of 21. Cancer?
Not necessarily: Uterine cancer cannot be diagnosed by ultrasound. You would need a biopsy to determine that. The lining is probably thick because you missed your period, and it accumulated, but you could easily have a benign endometrial polyp as well. Either way, it sounds like you need a further work up. Remember, the odds are in favor of a benign diagnosis. ...Read more

Mom with menopause had periods of heavy bleeding due to which she is put on hrt. endo biopsy negative. Are these episodes of heavy bleeding normal?
No, not really: Heavy post menopausal bleeding is never normal, as it can be a sign of uterine cancer. She's had a negative endometrial biopsy though. She might have benign uterine fibroids (uterine nodules) or polyps. They can cause bleeding. Hopefully she's had a CT scan or pelvic ultrasound scan. If the med treatments don't work, then she could consider a hysterectomy or a uterine ablation procedure. ...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

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

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.

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 havent 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pelvic u/s done 4 days before start of period showed stripe=28mm and endometrium "somewhat thick" is this abnormal? I'm 33yo.
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
