    Thickened Uterus Lining
    An_224683 posted:
    I have had spotting and cramping between periods for 6months now. Had an utlrasound which came back normal and also a biopsy of the uterus(can't think of what it's called) that also came back normal. The Dr said I had an thickened uterus lining and prescribed Aygestin to shed it. I am to take it for 3 wks and then will have a very heavy period. I am nervous of the side effects of this, I am not a pill taker at all if I can help it, but that's my phobia. Has anyone experienced this before? I know the lining can vary and I see my Dr in a couple of days and will ask all my questions before I start (her nurse called w/the results and phoned in the prescription) but I just wanted to see if anyone out there has had a similar situation and what you have done about it. I also have a history of breast cancer in my family so am wary about taking hormones because of that, even though this will not be long term. Has anyone had experience w/Aygestin? I have read the comments about it on this site and they are good in general but of course the negative ones have my anxiety working overtime. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks for reading.
