Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Huge range: There is a huge range here for possibilities. Day 7 for a regularly ovulating woman with no other pathology--range 5-9mm. However, if you had something like PCOS where you don't ovulate or menstruate regularly then the lining could be much thicker, like 12mm+. Some women with a really thin lining (low estrogen levels) have persistent bleeding and I would expect their lining to be 5mm or less. ...Read more

See an OB/GYN doctor: In general, gradual thickening of the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is abnormal. Now, during our menstrual cycle, the lining thickens and sheds off with each period. Progressive thickening might mean abnormalities in the ovary hormones, so that you don't have a normal "shedding, " or possibly a disease that allows overgrowth -- like benign "hyperplasia, " or rarely, a cancer. Good luck! ...Read more
