    Re: Endometrial stripe

    The D&C should have taken care of the thick lining. I have read that the lining typically gets 16mm during your cycle so yours was not even that thick. Have you had an ongoing problem with a thick lining? If so, were you frequently skipping periods? You didn't mention your age or menstrual history but the hormonal changes that occur when we are transitioning to menopause can cause erratic cycles which can cause some build-up of the lining. But, thankfully, our bodies usually do a good job of shedding it before it becomes a problem. Of course, there are situations where treatment is necessary - such as a medication (progestin) or a D&C - to thin it out. Birth control pills are also an option if this has been an ongoing problem.
