Bleeding: You have bleeding from either spectrum. Thick lining usually associated with cramps bleeding and clots as excessive thick endometrium sloughs off. When the lining thins it exposes your underlining endometrial vessels and they bleed. The fibroid does not help.

Can you conceive if you have breakthrough bleeding and a thin uterine lining. The dr did several tests and found nothing abnormal.

Can you conceive if you have breakthrough bleeding and a thin uterine lining. The dr did several tests and found nothing abnormal.

If you are ovulating: As long as you are ovulating, and having intercourse during the time of ovulation, then yes you can conceive. The thickness of the lining of the uterus will vary during the cycle (right after menses, it is usually thinner; gets thicker right before menses). It is hard to say whether or not you are ovulating based on the information available. If not getting regular menses then prob not ovulating.

My bleeding profile with Nexplanon was near constant at 5+ months of use. Would this indicate my uterine lining is on the thin side or thick side?

My bleeding profile with Nexplanon was near constant at 5+ months of use. Would this indicate my uterine lining is on the thin side or thick side?

Neither: It's just one of the problems that come with that type of birth control. It doesn't indicate much about the status of your endometrium. But you should go get checked by an MD (not a nurse practitioner) to make sure you're not anemic from that much bleeding.

Is withdrawal bleeding from Plan B shedding of uterine lining?

Is withdrawal bleeding from Plan B shedding of uterine lining?

Yes: Shedding of uterine lining is what happens with your menses and in the case of plan b, assuming it worked, that would be the result as well. However, Plan B doesn't always work. Consider check a pregnancy test about 2 weeks after Plan B use.

How long does it take the body to shed 11mm of uterine lining? I missed 1 period now have been bleeding for past 4 weeks and still have 11mm left

How long does it take the body to shed 11mm of uterine lining? I missed 1 period now have been bleeding for past 4 weeks and still have 11mm left

May not: Bleeding for four weeks and still having a thick lining may require some medication like Progesterone in order to shed the remainder of the lining. You may not have ovulated that cycle therefore no Progesterone was made.

I am having an endo sweeping. I have a 3-5 CM buildup of the uterine lining. I have never had any other symptoms (no bleeding, cramps, pain, etc.)i am 6o, on bhrt for 20 years. Why would this be needed?

Rule out cancer: A typical postmenopausal endometrial lining measurement should be <4-5 mm because the ovaries are not actively producing hormones to thicken up the lining. Being on hrt with estrogen alone increases the risk of uterine cancer, therefore you should be on both estrogen and Progesterone to reduce this risk. This combination should keep your lining thin. Sometimes a benign polyp can thicken lining.

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud.?

I am shedding clumps of uterine lining but not bleeding. I have been experiencing pms symptoms the past week. I Have Jaydess/skyla iud.?

Sometimes one does: See more decidual (lining) tissue than blood in a menstrual period...rarely the whole uterine lining will be passed in one piece...a decidual cast. This will usually be an isolated event, and the next period will have the usual lining mixed with blood. The Skyla IUD is associated with lighter periods as well. If persists/more questions, return to your Doc. Good wishes:)

Had a frozen embryo transfer yesterday. My second one. This morning had some bleeding. Started red and is now brownish. My dr said not to worry. Uterine lining was thick and good yesterday. Thoughts?

Had a frozen embryo transfer yesterday. My second one. This morning had some bleeding. Started red and is now brownish. My dr said not to worry. Uterine lining was thick and good yesterday. Thoughts?

Doctor is right: This happens a lot - that's why your doctor is right telling you not to worry. If he/she believed there was cause efor worry and something to do about it, you can be guaranteed he/she would help you. I know it's normal to worry, but it doesn't do any good. Follow instructions, and good luck.

See below: This is a problem that necessitates a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. This will allow him/her to examine you, ask specific questions. And possibly order tests to find out what's wrong and what to do to help you.

Heavy and long bleeding for 1 year. No pain or mid-cycle bleeding. Reg cycles. Had us today, 5 days into cycle. Endo lining about 8-9cm. Is that abnormal? Could it be uterine cancer?

Probably not, but...: Bleeding patterns can change over a woman's life time. Significant changes may mean there is a cause that can be treated like poly, fibroids, or changes in the growth of the uterine lining. Us exams and enodmetrial tissue biopsies can help determine what is the cause and how to treat it. You should see your provider to discuss further.

What is the normal range of uterine lining mine is 23cm abnormal bleeding 3 months cysts both ovaries lower back pain.?

What is the normal range of uterine lining mine is 23cm abnormal bleeding 3 months cysts both ovaries lower back pain.?

16 mm: In a pre-menopausal woman an endometrial lining that exceeds 16 mm in sickness can be considered too thick in the sense that there may be pathology behind it. A dilatation and curettage (D&C) during which the tissue is removed from the uterus and sent to pathology for further evaluation is in order.

Got the depo shot three months ago, no period until two days ago, bleeding was brownish then lastnight red with flesh, uterine lining or miscarriage?

Pregnancy test: It is not uncommon for women to experience breakthrough bleeding while on Depotprovera, especially towards the end of the injection. Unfortunately, an early miscarriage could presents with similar symptoms. To be sure, only a pregnancy test will tell.

What does it mean when the lining of the uterus is thick but your not bleeding?

What does it mean when the lining of the uterus is thick but your not bleeding?

US reading: Assuming this was from an US reading, it simply means that your uterus was measured and found to be in the "thick" classification category. As long as you are getting regular routine evaluations with your GYN dr. And getting your normal screening test done, and have no symptoms, AND assuring your GYN knows the report of the US, and is following you...then you should be fine.

My uterus lining is shedding but I am not bleeding. I am sexually active and am wondering if there is a possibility that I am pregnant?

My uterus lining is shedding but I am not bleeding. I am sexually active and am wondering if there is a possibility that I am pregnant?

Uterine shedding: I'm not at all sure what you mean by thinking your uterine lining is shedding but no bleeding - this is really not possible. If your'e having some type of vaginal discharge without blood, it is not your lining. You need to see your OB/GYN to determine true source of the discharge to make sure some other form of treatment is not needed. And if you are sexually active, pregnancy is always possible

Can you tell me where does the bleeding come from if it is not the lining of the uterus sloughing off?

Can you tell me where does the bleeding come from if it is not the lining of the uterus sloughing off?

You are right!: The lining of the uterus known as endometrium builds up every cycle as a thin lining insiode the uterine cavity. When it sheds, the uterine wall bleeds. This is the period.
