I am 41 and haven't had a period in a year. I finally went to the gyno for that reason and concerns for PCOS. I had a pap and was given an ultrasound. I was told that I have a small cyst on my ovary, but was told that the lining of my uterus was very thick 23mm! She said that she doesn't feel it is PCOS or Menopause... what could it be? The dr. told me that I need to have a biopsy and then to take Provera? I wasn't told they found any polyps or fibroids but can be a cause? I am scared out of my mind! I don't know what to think, but I am terrified that it is cancer. Any thoughts?

Re: Terrified!

I'm sorry this has you terrified! Hopefully, you will fall into the majority where this thick lining is nothing serious or at least something that is easily treatable with medication. The Provera will force a bleed to thin out your lining.

Ovarian cysts are common and most resolve on their own so hoping that is the case for yours.

Yes, polyps and fibroids can be a "cause" of a thick lining. With imaging, it can be hard to differentiate polyps and small fibroids from the lining itself making it appear thicker than it is.

When are you having the biopsy? I hope it goes well and shows that this is easily treatable! Let us know what you find out. Hang in there!
