... in July. I have a fibroid and following my hysteroscopy was told that I have a thickened wall of the endometrium which is vascular. Any one know what this might mean? ... (3 replies)
... Personally, I would opt for the D&C since there is atypia (atypical cells that are not cancerous but could eventually become cancerous if left there to grow). That prodecure is no big deal, and cleans the uterus out. There should be followup afterward to monitor the endometrium. Never take estrogen therapy without progesterone intermittently, as that will cause the lining to... (7 replies)
... D and C yesterday morning. A half hour procedure took an hour. I had some fibroids which the doctor took samples of and samples of the endometrium before scraping out the 18mm lining.

... I've had a watery, bloody discharge for months. When I saw my gyn in September, she suggested a pelvic us with transvaginal. It showed a slightly thickened lining.

... Hi, so glad I found this board. I recently had a IUD removed and they took an ultra sound to look to see if any broke off. They found that the endometrium was 10mm.

... See, I have had the cramping off and on for over 4 years, but of course now the ultrasound showed the thick endometrium and doc says cramping or no cramping at a 9mm reading, women should be checked just to make sure. Did you ever take hormones? ... (25 replies)

... Post-menopausal bleeding is more common than most women realize and is usually nothing serious. It seems to be more common within the 5 years after periods end and can usually be "chalked up" to sporadic ovarian activity since the ovaries continue producing hormones into a woman's 80's. Fibroids or polyps make this more likely to happen. And they can also make the lining... (3 replies)
... Over the years there has been 4 D&C's done and the linning kept growing, because my fat cells are producing all the estrogen I will have to loose this weight to correct this problem. The doctor said that because my body is producing so much estrogen, I probably wouldn't have any problems that go along with a hysterectomy - such as hot flashes. So far I am doing great - so I...
