thickening of the endometrium

thickening of the endometrium - my doctor says my uterine lining is at 17mm and should be at 10mm. I bled for 30 days and am anemic. I am 51 years old and feel I am approaching menopause. Before this long, heavy period, I had not had a period for 3 months. I had a sonogram and was told I had an abnormal uterine lining and she wants to run more tests. I just want to go through the change of life normally, not a lot of useless tests. I am taking iron twice a day, but still feel tired and began spotting again just yesterday. What do you think?

Re: thickening of the endometrium

Hi Vicki.....

I was told the same thing as you. I am 47. I was bleeding for 1 1/2 months. So, I went to the gyno doctor and she did a biopsy right then and a pap. She ordered blood work to check tyroid and hormones. All came back ok. Also did an ultrsound <pelvic and vaginal> that showed fibroids and the thickened lining. At the follow up appt. I asked how thick is too thick and she just said mine was 2 times as thick as it should be? So.....I am scheduled to have an ablation done on sept. 23. I do have 2 fibroids in my uterus but she doesnt feel that this is causing the bleeding and the endometrial lining to be too thick. She says many times women have uterine polyp's that can cause this. She is going to do a hysterscopy<sp?> as well and said if anything looks abnormal they will biopsy right then. Not only am I going through this female stuff, I am going through a rough time with a back issue UGHHHHH Feel like I will never be normal again. The bleeding started again for me today. Sick of all this mess!

Re: thickening of the endometrium

the thickness is caused from estrogen dominance it can cause heavy period that was the problem with me that is why i had my uterus burned
