In brief: Findings
At 47, it would be very very common to have irregular periods.
Your ovaries begin to work less regularly and you ovulate less often especially after age 45. This is called the perimenopause. Your physician was probably looking for a thickened endometrium as hyperplasia is common as you approach menopause.
