Transvaginal scan shows lining of womb thick but blood test OK?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi im a little confused and wondered if anyone has been through the same. I am 28 years old and have always had irregular periods. However i have has some treatment for CIN3 but past 3 years have all been normal. The past few moths however I have had some very odd symptoms siluch as bleeding for a day then stops. Lower back pain, pain during intercourse and blood stained discharge. Then recently I bleed heavily including clots(sorry) for over 4 weeks. The doctor had to prescribe medicine to help stop. I had all usual tests done to rule out infection which come back clear. I was refered for transvaginal scan and sonographer said he could not see any cysts on ovary (i was also diagnosed with PCOS) however the lining of my womb was thicker than it should be and wanted me refered to the gynocolgist. Same day i had blood test and called today which said blood levels all OK (hormone kevels were fine too) I have doctors on tuesday to chat but made the appt myself. I believe that i am waiting for an appointment to have a camera into the womb.

Has anyone else experienced this and what was the outcome. Im soo confussed. Thank you for reading.

      Hi, no ive had no surgery. The doctor initially requested the scan as she suspected fibroids or polyps but the scan didnt show any, only that the lining of my womb was thick.

      Just want answers really so I will have to wait until tuesday I guess. Im never anygood at the waiting game
