Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question.

The commonest cause could be a condition known as PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian disease.

PCOS will cause all of the symptoms you have - skipping periods followed by heavy bleeding and a thick endometrial lining.

PCOS will not cause changes in the female hormones. It can however show an increase in male hormones and you need to be tested for that.

I hope this helps.

what are some other causes for it? i had an ultrasound and they found 1 small cyst on one ovary but said there was a “mass” that was too hard to see since my uterine lining was so thick. It seems that they ruled out PCOS

A mass which is hidden by a thick endometrial lining can be a endometrial polyp or submucous fibroid. But both these conditions will not cause you to skip a period - they will cause spotting on and off.

A thick endometrial lining can be due to endometrial hyperplasia - you will need a D&C to check the endometrial cells.

hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
