Well, you can see: that the right ovary seems to be a little bit bigger than the left. The left ovary dimensions are fully within the normal range; the right is a little bit large in the width dimension (3.4 cm:normal is 1.5-3) and in thickness (2.1 cm:normal is 0.5-1.5). Similarly, the endometrial stripe is a little thick (upper limit of normal usually is 1.1 cm). All this suggests need for good evaluation with GYN ...Read more

Why would part of my endometrial stripe be thin and part be thick (over 1cm)? This is 7 days after end of an 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
