Re: what is an enlarged and thickening of a uterus
I'm going to jump in here too. I have an enlarged uterus and a thickened endometrium lining (not sure how thick). I do know the doctor said my uterus is the size of a 14 week pregnancy. Doctor offered hysterectomy because I have fibroids, polyps, thickened lining, heavy periods, am anemic, etc.
I am trying the natural progesterone cream. After three days of being on the cream, I had an attack of vertigo, so I stopped using it. The doctor says it's unrelated to the progesterone usage, so I started using it again yesterday. I don't want a hysterectomy, so I hope I can use this and hope it helps!
Also, Nina, I don't know your age, but I know my doctor says they are not too concerned about cancer being the cause unless you are beyond sixty. Most endometrial lining thickening in women below sixty is caused by too much estrogen, not enough progesterone (the ratio between the two), or it can be adenomyosis where you have endometriosis growing in the lining of your uterus and it thickens.
Are you having symptoms? Heavy periods?
