Treatment For Thick Uterine Lining
I m diagonoed with bulky uterus 16mm endometrial lining. My age is 52 yrs n facing heavy irregular bleeding. What is the treatment?
Do I need treatment now, no symptoms, 1 yr ago endometrial lining thickened to 39 mm, uterus enlarged to 13 weeks size with lots of small fibroid?
Maybe: If had a biopsy a year ago and your doctor ruled out cancer as cause of your thickened lining, and you're not having any irregular bleeding, then you might be okay. An endometrial biopsy is only good for 1 year, so it may be time to discuss any uterine conditions with your doctor again. Lots of small fibroids often do not need to be operated on, especially close to menopause. Call dr for appt. ...Read more
What is bulky uterus (16mm) endometrial lining. Is it the cause of heavy bleeding. What is the treatment for excessive bleeding?
While onFET cycle after starting estradiol my sonogram showed fluid in the uterus lining & embryo transfer was canceled on the last treatment day. What could be the reason for it & how to treat it?
5 days into cycle uterine lining meaasured 7mm already had hysteroscopy which showed mildly proliferative but is 7mm too thick?
No: 7mm would likely be consistent with the endometrium specimen that shows mild proliferative. Proliferative just means the lining is getting prepared for ovulation. In general once the lining gets over 15mm in thickness then we start worrying about the possibility of hyperplasia. If overly concerned consider getting an endometrial ablation. I prefer Novasure. That should end all bleeding issues. ...Read more
Progestin is used to thin out uterine lining. But I passed 1 inch thick piece of lining after over dosing myself with progestin for 3 weeks. Why?
Does both: Progestins can thin the endometrium but they also will cause sloughing of a secretory endometrium, it depends on the specific situation and timing. Btw it's not really possible to 'overdose' on progestins, good news! ...Read more
Dr. Is it possible that high doses of sythetic progestin for 2 months did not thin out my uterine lining but caused it to pass? (2cm long, 1.5cm thick)
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 uterine lining measures 11mm on day 3. Hv been askd to do another u/s on day 5.Is th lining too thick to start clomid (clomiphene)? Please help.
Too thick: You may still have not finished with your period and dr wants to make sure the lining is back to normal before starting. Nothing to worry and just a precaution. ...Read more
Endometrial biopsy done because uterine lining 9mm thick. Benign, but Dr only able to get scant tissue sample. Why would that happen?
Aspiration device: If your MD used a aspiration endometrial biopsy device then a small sampling was all that was needed to give a benign "diagnosis." The "olden days" in office scraping is usually no longer done unless it was a D & C in a surgical environment. ...Read more
I am 57 & postmenopausal for 6 yrs. I have had heavy spotting for 4 weeks. Had a tvu which found thick uterine lining, 22.7. Can polyps cause this?
I have been bleeding for 1 month at times it is heavy. I was diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia with 1.3cm thick uterine lining. How thick is 1.3?

Sometimes, women pass thick uterine lining in period. After having progestin, why did I pass one? Progestin should prevent it from thickening, right?
Used depo for approx 2 yrs. Last shotJuly 2015. No period Could I ovulate without a period? Without a period Would the uterine lining be thick enough?
Uterine lining 6mm thick 6 mos. Ago & Dr. Monitored. Did another ultrasound & now 9mm thick & will do D&C. Could cancer develop in that amount of time?
Biopsy will tell:
There are several causes of a thickened urterine lining:
Hyperplasiis, polyps, horomonal (estrogen excess) can also cause a thicker uterine liniing. A D&C and a pathologist reading of your biopsy will reveal what the cause is. Cancers themselves can be either slow or fast growing but the process begins long before it is noted. No need to speculate - await th epatholgoist report. ...Read more
47yr old LMP 7/24/17 I’m close to menopause, my FSH was 53.2. My uterine lining is 4.1mm, is this too thick and worrisome for cancer?
Uterine lining is ok: Your endometrium is not "too thick". The risk that a uterine lining of 4.1 mm would be associated with cancer is so remote as to be negligible. There is little cause for alarm. If you are terribly concerned, are bleeding irregularly and insist on having more peace of mind, you may want to discuss the pros and cons of an office endometrial sampling or of a saline sonohysterogram with your Gyn. ...Read more
Was instructed to take Prometrium (micronized progesterone). But Doctor also says my uterine lining was very healthy n thick @ 9.5. if I don't need it why take it?
Clarification: When prescribed a new medication it is always good ask for clarification on the goals, duration of treatment, excepted outcomes and side effects. Without knowing more about your case we can not provide specific guidance but these are good questions to ask the prescribing doctor who knows all of the details ...Read more
Hi there, so if your uterine lining is thick, it doesn't really mean, you have cancer, right? Could be just hiperplasia? I took prometrium for 10 days and the 11th was the first day of my period, but today, the 24th, after I thought it stopped on the 17th
Hyperplasia.: Endometrial thickening means exactly what it says-- the lining of your uterus is thick. It does not mean you have cancer! At 38, that's very unlikely. Taking estrogen or having high estrogen levels can increase endometrial thickness and lead to cancer, but usually in women over age 60. Take a deep breath! ...Read more
So confused why prescribed prometrium (micronized progesterone) for just thick uterine lining if its used to thicken lining?
Let me help.: Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is a type of progesterone. Progesterone stabilizes the lining of the uterus and tells it not to get any thicker. When you stop taking the progesterone, a few days later the lining will come out like a period. It's actually the estrogen that makes the lining grow thicker and the Progesterone that stabilizes the lining. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
40yr old, uterine polyp endo lining thick, estrogen high. No menopause yet. Will amberen work for me to balance hormones?
No: I've checked the ingredient list for amberen and do not see anything listed that would be either helpful or harmful in this situation. With a thick lining, high estrogen and a polyp, a cancer or precancer must be ruled-out and treatment with natural Progesterone the best option in many situations. ...Read more

I am 60 and have been post-menopausal for 20 years. I've taken bhrt for most of that time. My uterine lining is thick (abt 3-5 cm) and I am to have a prometrium (micronized progesterone) sweeping. [rest of q in subsequent msg]?
Uh oh: If your uterine lining is really 3-5 centimeters thick - you need to have some form of biopsy done (endometrial biopsy in the office) or d&c.The uterine lining of a postmenopausal women should be closer to 3 millimeters, and if it is 3cm, there is a very high chance of having endometrial cancer.I don't know what Prometrium (micronized progesterone) sweeping is, but if it is taking Prometrium (micronized progesterone) for 7d, to cause. It isn't enoug. ...Read more
