How do you measure the endometrial thickness with intrauterine device in patient with pv bleeding. What is the range?

In brief: <5 mm = good

In general after menopause an endometrial thickness < 5 mm is unlikely to indicate cancer.
> 25 mm is very concerning. In between is indeterminate and a biopsy would be the next steps.
