I received results from an initial ultrasound today and was hoping for some clarification. The results were as follows: The uterus
size was normal (although my gyno felt it was a little enlarged upon pelvic exam
), There was Heterogeneous myometrium likely due to small fibroids, the endometrium
was within normal limits for a premenopausal patient. There was an apparent small fluid collection in the superior endometrial cavity, probably a small amount of blood.
I had the ultrasound because ever since I have stopped taking the birth control
pill, about 2 years ago, I have experienced heavier periods, especially the first two days, paired with sometimes quite painful cramping
on the first two days as well which are quieted by a normal dose of ibuprofen. I am 41 and have regular periods as far as length, and they occur like clockwork for the most part each month. Although perhaps unrelated, I was recently diagnosed with low-thyroid as well at 5.3.
Thank you for your response!
