Hi. I recently had a transvaginal ultrasound following 18mths of irregular frequent bleeding. The result showed a thickened womb lining of 5.7mm. I am on depo injections for the last 4yrs (was on before for 7yrs then advised to have a break from it for a while). this time round usual first 6mths of periods mucking about as is normal when starting depo injections, then no periods as before. for last 18mths i have had completely random irregular frequent bleeds ranging from 3days to 4wks at a time, & dark spotting to moderate bleeding. I don't think I am losing alot of blood, & I do feel tired most of of the time. I also get moderate period pain I didnt get before this all started, & intense headaches before & during bleeds that last 1-3days at a time. my gp tried doing my depo every 8wks instead of 12, didnt help. I am 44 & never had kids. As the bleeding time has decreased a bit last couple of months ie 6days last month & 3days this month my gp said to see how i go next few months & if it continues to be erratic/lengthy to go back & she will refer me to gynae as my womb lining is thicker than the normal cut off point of 5mm. since i saw gp, I am now spotting dark blood for 2nd time this month for last 4days. should i see how it goes for a couple more months, or ask to see gynae now for further investigation eg hysteroscopy/biopsy? I am a little worried that my womb lining thickness is above the normal limit of 5mm, but in the grand scale of things i don't know if 5.7mm is that abnormal??? anyone any experience of this or can give me opinion what to do?
