    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
    Dear An: That is generally a reassuring finding in an older postmenopausal woman. It describes a very thin uterine lining. Sometimes, in an older woman who is not taking estrogen, the lining can become so thin that it is easily destabilized and begins to produce vaginal bleeding. In this instance an ultrasound can indicate if the lining is super thin or if there is an isolated area of thickening which is a worrisome finding.

    The GYN who ordered her ultrasound should be able to give you both the most "for sure" answer as they know her health history.

    Yours,
    Jane
