Is it possible for fibroids to grow within a year? And could they possibly affect implantation and the lining of cervix? Does removing them an option for someone who has never conceived. And does it after chances of getting pregnant in the future?

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
