Re: what is thickening of the uterus

Ruby54 welcome to the board,
Uterine lining varies in thickness over the course of the menstrual cycle. In the menopausal woman, it is typically 4mm or less in thickness. If the lining stays thick, your doctor might want to sample the lining (called an endometrial biopsy).
