Thickened endometrial lining
carebear52 posted:
Hi I am 52, stopped my periods 5 months ago - assumed menopause, feeling very bloated for the past 3 months - doc ordered hormone test - all show I am not in menopause - ordered ultrasound - showed thickened endometrium at 2.3 cm. Uterus measures 10.5 X 4.6 X 5.9 cm; right ovary fine - left ovary not seen. Prescribed 10 days of Prometrium with follow up in 6 wks with another ultrasound and an endometrial biopsy. My question - why not just do the biopsy now just to rule out cancer - doc said would like to shed the lining first with hormone pills. Any women with similar issues??
