Thick: Depends on how thick? Also it depends on your symptoms. Biggest concern would be uterine cancer which can be screened with an endometrial biopsy in your doctors office or OB/gyn. Ask your provider if that is necessary. ...Read more

Fibroids in the anterior wall of the uterus, what does that mean? Does it mean inside the uterus or outside the uterus?

Part of the uterus: Fibroids are benign tumors of uterine muscle. They are always part of the uterus, although they may grow in a variety of directions. If fibroids cause no symptoms, no treatment is necessary. If they do cause symptoms (heavy bleeding, pressure), then opinions from both a gyn (who may offer surgery) and an interventional radiologist (who may offer embolization) would be helpful. ...Read more

My uterus contains a 6cm fibroid in the posterior myometrium.  Does this mean it is inside the uterus - or in the wall of the uterus?

Not enough info ...: The myometrium is the muscular wall of the uterus so most or all of the fibroid is in the wall. Posterior means the back wall of your uterus as opposed to the front. A fibroid in the myometrium may be completely within the wall (intramural) or project into the inside cavity of the uterus (submucosal) or it may be just under the outer covering of the uterus (subserosal). Ultrasound or MRI can tell. ...Read more

Uterine lining: I presume you are having periods. At your young age all the parts are still working and any lining in your uterus is responding by growing. An ablation doesn't necessarily destroy all the lining and bleeding will persist. ...Read more

What does it mean normal size of uterus with  thickened endometrial stripe? No evidence of intrauterine pregnancy. Is it possible to get pregnant?

US results: The size of the stripe, or the thickness of the endometrium, can be an indicator of endometrial abnormality, although this must be considered along with other signs or symptoms a woman may be experiencing. This in and of itself does not make pregnancy impossible. ...Read more
