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

No problem: Hi. While green tea isn't doing anything to or for your "hormones" (and you have hundreds of hormones), it's a nice beverage and you certainly feel better having a couple of cups of it per day, so go for it. I'm certain green tea in that dose has no down side. Bon appétit! ...Read more

Keep trying.: If you are off birth control and are having unprotected sex with a regular predictable menstrual cycle, the chance of natural conception each month is about 20%. Make sure you have sex around ovulation time. If you fail to conceive for more than 1 year, consult your obgyn for a fertility workup. Your male partner can obtain a semen analysis to quickly make sure there are no problems from his end. ...Read more

When the uterine lining sheds, can it leave a scar?

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. When there is no fertilized egg implanting, the uterus with contractions (cramps) loosens and sheds the inner lining, making clots appear in menstrual blood. This process is not associated with scarring. ...Read more
