Depending on your age, thickened endometrial lining can mean a number of things.
During my first ultrasound the tech discovered a large uterus, thick lining and a spot she thought could be a polyp. Since I am 53 (past the normal age for menopause)
and my cycles are still going strong, the doctor suggested another ultrasound after my next cycle. She thought the lining might be thick because I was mid-cycle, and that the polyp could possibly be a blood clot. After the second ultrasound, the lining was back to normal, no polyp detected. My uterus was still enlarged, and since the lining was thinner, the tech was able to see some fibroids. I am waiting for a call next week
after the doctor compares the ultrasounds to see where we go from here. Good luck with your D & C. I hope all goes well for you.
speaking from my own experience last year. I was post menopausal for 3 years (no periods) suddenly had a massive period, of course I went to get it checkd out had a trans vaginal ultra sound which showed the endometrial lining had thickened considerably (think it was 10cm?) I forget now, and would have to go back over this site to see however, regardless of the thickness I ended up having a D & C with hysteroscopy and all results were the BIG DELISH NEGATIVE

I too had large fibroid tumours in the uterous when younger (when I was still having periods) and when I hit menopause the tumours shrunk as they are 'fed on a blood supply' which as we know stops when we are in full menopause.

After the D & C I have had no re-occurances of periods the odd bit of cramping but that is all. Am not taking any HRT nor BC pills..... just trying to 'go with the flow' so to speak of hot flashes, and stuff. All easy for me to handle as not a reason for me to 'change' from who I am. Simply a way of
'changing from what was before, to what is now, to what will come' Well, I must keep a humour about me.

In some cases thick endometrial lining is of a concern, and having a biospy done is the way to go. I hope by now you have the results.
