Thick lining of the womb after Menopause

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had an ultrasound and have been told my womb lining is thick and I need yet another hysteroscopy unser a GA. This will be the 5th one and each time in the past the biopsy has come back negative for cancer. My last one was last May and I ended up getting a sepsis infecion and nealy died. Is there any other form of diagnosis or treatment that I could have instead?

    Hi Seggy - I am the same and about to have my 2nd - however my Dr. has said no more after this as the procudure is not a cure for the thick lining - just a way to remove and and has its risks like any surgery.

    I presume you are on hrt and this is feeding the growth (it is in my case) and I am sad because the hrt I was on cured everything and made life brilliant once again.

    A Mirena has been suggested which will prevent further build up, then I can resume some other form of hrt to help. I have had no bleeding since coming of the hrt.

    There is also a procedure -- an ablation where they burn the lining away, but this is not permanent for some.

    Hope this helps 5 times is too many - I would be looking to another fix.

    Good luck,

    Are you on estrogen therapy, and do you use progesterone also?

    Just an update Seggy and ladies, I am going to see if I can be prescribed Femoston and leave the mirena for now. Can tough out most of the symptoms but can not go back to being sad and teary all the time, and advised this may help.

    Will let you know how it goes - as it may help others?
