Which Hormone Is Found In The Highest Concentration When The Uterine Lining Is Thickest
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.

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

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?
No scar: The uterine lining, the endometrium, gets thicker during the first half of the menstrual cycle such as to provide a cushion for a fertilized egg to implant.
