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?

In brief: 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.
