Customer Question
Hi I'm 32 and...

Hi I'm 32 and just got my results from an ultrasound. My results: The endometrial stripe measures 14 mm transvaginally. The cervix demonstrates a suggestion of some endometrial thickening isolated to this vicinity measuring up to 20 mm. What does this mean? I have a history of extremely painful and heavy periods, with light bleeding in between cyles.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Not really

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a strain of HPV about 10 years ago but it cleared

OK. I was worried that you were not seeing my posts.

The basic issues is a thickened endometrial lining.

This is common in a condition called adenomyosis.

It is when the endometrium grows into the muscular wall of the uterus and will cause heavy periods.

It is not a life threatening condition.

Here is some information from the mayo clinic.
