My daughter is 11 years with thickening of endometrial lining measuring 16mm. Is it normal. Her lmp was on 28/7/16?

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
