Unprotected sex 5 weeks ago. Started pill same day as unprotected sex. Period started on time, had clots that looked like uterine lining. Normal?
Not pregnant: If you had unprotected sex and had a period after, then you may have gotten lucky because you did not ovulate during the time you had sex. Your first period after starting pills, if they delayed your period, can lead to more bleeding than usual that can lead to clots, so this could be totally normal. Keep taking those pills daily to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more
What does it mean to have endometrial cells on the uterine lining? I am 45 and had just finished my cycle when I had ultrasound and pap normal
See below: Endometrial cells are what make up the uterine lining, so this is a normal comment. If on the other hand, you are having abnormal bleeding (as a reason for the ultrasound that you had performed) and there are endometrial cells on a pap smear, then you definitely need further evaluation of the uterine lining to rule out pre-cancerous changes called hyperplasia. ...Read more
I've read that lutera not only suppresses ovulation but also thins the uterine lining. When I stop taking it will my uterus go back to normal?
Yes: Most oral contraceptive pills (ocps) thin the uterine lining. Think of it this way, many doctors will prescribe ocps to treat heavy menstrual bleeding because the pills work to keep the lining of the uterus thin; therefore, minimizing monthly blood loss. This does not damage the uterus. After discontinuing pills, your uterus will be normal. ...Read more

Had a pap smear on day 10 of menstration. Pap came back normal but shows endometrial cells on uterine lining. What does this mean? Going for a biopsy.
Likely okay: Typically, unless a woman is having irregular bleeding, endometrial cells on a pap aren't worrisome at all. That's based on a new recommendation for pap smear management. If you have irregular or heavy bleeding, doctor will want to rule out pre-cancer as cause, hence, biopsy of uterine lining. No harm in biopsy. Your doctor knows you best, so be sure to ask him/her why they have concerns for biops. ...Read more

Endometrium at time of implantation can range from 7mm to 14mm. After implantation, the endometrium respond to estrogen and progesterone for growth.
Thus your endometrium of 17.4mm 3-4weeks gestation can be normal.
For reassurance, you will need:
1. Get qualitative hcg and repeat after 2days for normal rise.
2. Get a follow up scan to confirm normal early fetal growth.
Good luck. ...Read more
I am 34 and diagnosed with atrophic uterus lining. Blood panel/hormones are within normal range. No past surgeries. What could be causing this?
Diagnosis is unclear: If you still have regular menses, the lining of your normal uterus will appear thick or thin on ultrasound (not "atrophic") depending on the time at which your exam was done. An "atrophic uterus lining" is an unclear diagnosis which may not be applicable to you if your estrogen "hormones are normal" but to a postmenopausal woman or to an amenorrheic woman who has not menstruated for months. ...Read more

Uterine lining: The thickness of the endometrium varies throughout the menstrual cycle. It is thickest a week after ovulation (week before menses), and thinnest after a period. It grows under the influence of hormones secreted by the ovary during the normal cycle. One always has the chance to ovulate with PCOS, and there is no way to predict whether you will in a given cycle. ...Read more

Thin lining: At certain times of your cycle the lining is thin - immediately after your period. Estrogen thickens/ grows the uterine lining. A low amount of estrogen production will result in a thin lining. The most common thing that causes a thin lining in young women is hormonal contraceptives (pills, depo, mirena, (levonorgestrel) NuvaRing). Here, it is normal and not an indication of any problem. ...Read more

The timing of your last period, other symptoms, medications, and the appearance of the thickening are all important considerations. Management could range from continued observation to surgical procedures. ...Read more
Tissue layer: The inner lining of the uterus builds up under the influence of estrogens from the ovaries during the first half of the menstrual cycles, and under the influence of progesterone released from the ovary after ovulation transforms into a tissue layer suited to nurture a fertilized egg. If there is no pregnancy, this inner lining is shed during the menstrual period. ...Read more
