Congratulations ! ?: Your transvaginal sonogram seems to be normal...depending on your age, parity, personal and family history , the medical indication for the tvs etc. If by "I have no period now" you mean you are postmenopausal or if you use estrogens, you may need a saline sonohysterogram or further evaluation by endometrial biopsy. Consult the gynecologist who knows you. ...Read more

Is a thick 18mm endometrial stripe a cause of concern? I had an us 2 days before my period. But looked at an us from 2 years ago and endo was 1.1cm.

Its significance depends partly on your age, menstrual pattern & the degree of irregularity of the stripe. Your Gyno may need to "sample" or biopsy the endometrium to get a firm diagnosis.

Why would part of my endometrial stripe be thin and part be thick (over 1cm)?  This is 7 days after end of a abnormal 21 day period.

Uneven "lawn mowing": When the estrogen/progesterone sequencing is "out of phase" for whatever reason then the endometrium will be "disordered" just like a drunken landscaper mowing your yard or a tornado that has plowed through a corn field. Thus when the period starts only the part of the endometrium that is "tallest" will shed leaving the rest in place to begin to bleed again later. ...Read more
