I had an endometrial biopsy a few days ago. It wasn't too, too bad. It seemed to be a relatively quick procedure. There was some cramping during and after, but nothing a little ibuprofen couldn't fix or, if your doc offers something stronger, nothing that that couldn't fix! The worst part is waiting to find out what's what and where to go from there. I am absolutely petrified.

Good luck to you and I hope your results are good ones!! :)

You're in my prayers:angel: ! Just be positive and remember that there are more than one reason for doing the biopsy and the most common results are normal! It's never easy for anyone to wait for results; just know you are not alone and we are always here for support. :)
I'm 49. This past August I got 2 periods in one month. I've skipped months but never had 2 in one month before. My pap in April was normal. I went to a new Ob/Gyn (my last one stopped taking insurance all together!) and she ordered an pelvic ultrasound. She said it could just be perimenopause. My lining was 7mm (but it was on the first day of my period) and their was fluid in my cul-de-sac. Otherwise everything looked normal. She said I could wait and see if it happens again and then do a biopsy. I decided to go ahead with the biopsy just for peace of mind. I had an endo biopsy last Thursday. I have a good tolerance for pain and that was painful. If I had to do that again I would for sure take something stronger than 3 advils. It is over fast though. Now I'm waiting for those results. When things like this happen, I become such a worry wart too. I'm obssessed with looking info up on the internet. Which is probably not good! The waiting is SO hard.

I just found out too that I had a cousin who got uterine sarcoma (the untreatable one) when she was 32 and passed within a year. Now I'm REALLY scared. Does anyone know how important it is if a cousin has a cancer???

The second period I had was a normal period, the same as the others.
Chodin, I'm glad it went so easily for you. Oprah had a show recently on just that subject of thyroid issues at this time of our life. I watched the show but really didn't learn anything. So far my thyroid is ok. But it sounds common.

Hotdam thanks for making me feel better. I would think it is more important to look at your closest relatives. I can't even imagine what my cousin was going thru ( that was 17 years ago) being 32 with 2 small children and having something odd like that.

Still waiting for my biopsy results. If I don't hear from her by 2 weeks, I'm suppose to call. I did request my pap results so I now have the actual report in my own file. I'm asking for copies of everything now. My last period and this period will be normal timing. No more extra periods.
Thank you again, hotdam for making me feel better! I'm very scared. The thing is I am in great health otherwise. So scary that after a diagnosis your whole life is changed forever. Keep me in your thoughts girls for a good outcome. I'll let you know what happens on Thursday. Best wishes to all waiting for results.
I just have to join this thread. I can so relate to all of this. I just got the results to my biopsy and not good. I have complex hyperplasia atypia. Pre uterine cancer. I am so thankfull I reacted to some symptons and didn't blow them off like I was close to doing. Don't know what the next step is but probably surgery. Will meet with the dr next week to hear my options. I am 56 and thought I would never go thru menopause. Finally last Easter I stopped having my periods and said about time! All of the sudden I started again but it was just too heavy. I know perimenopause can be weird so I waited several days and it just didn't seem right so called the nurse at my gyno to get some advise. They suggested ultrasound and biopsy. So glad I called I can't tell you. Ladies listen to your bodies. If something doesn't seem right check it out. I have been very healthy most of my life until the past two years and everything is going to .... Have thyroid problems too. Husband was dx with prostate cancer 6 months ago and now this. I have my colonscopy scheduled for the 4th so I had better keep that appt too. You're so right about taking stock in the medical field. I truly support all their luxury yachts! Though I have to admit a good dr is worth their weight in gold.
Good luck to all that are waiting for their results.

Hi shisslak,

Welcome! Waiting for these test results are not any fun but it really helps to share with others that are going thru the same things.

You asked "I am wondering if the issue of high estrogen and endometrial thickning are related." Yes they are. If you have high estrogen and low progesterone your lining could thicken. That is what my endo biopsy showed. Now I am taking Prometrium (progesterone) 12 nights a month. I've only taken it 1 month so far and start again on Saturday. So far I have no problems with it and it makes me sleep really well. Adding the progesterone should help in ovulation in order to shed the lining. I have no info on the MRI.

Best Wishes on your test results and keep us updated.

Judi
