Hi ladies. can anyone confirm is taking progesterone supposed to keep the womb lining thin? from what i can find on internet it sounds like it has that effect. reason i want to know is I've recently had a transvaginal ultrasound due to prolonged & irregular bleeding (I'm peri btw). I am on low dose hrt of estrogel - just 1 pump nightly , & utrogestan capsules for 12 days month. i also have the depo provera progesterone injection for contraception(can't be used as the progesterone part of my hrt as it's unlicensed for that use hence the utrogestan capsules).
I have been on the depo injection for 4yrs, & only started getting erratic & prolonged periods last 2yrs so its not the depo causing it.
My ultrasound has come back with thickened womb lining of 11mm & endometrium & myometrium appear merged (report wording). sonographer has recommended gynae assessment of uterus. I just thought progesterone was supposed to keep the lining thin??? anybody know? I have other concerns obviously but cannot do anymore until some gynae follow up done, but would like to know what effect progesterone "should" be having on the womb lining.
Any advice or comments welcomed girls. xx
