I'm currently having scans to investigate why my periods have become so painful, I'm 33 and I have 4 children (had my 4th 9 months ago) and I would rather feel the pain of childbirth than have my period each month.
Doctor sent me for a scan last week and the results where back the next day, I apparently had a thickened endometrial lining of 17.2mm (I'm not on any hormonal pill) he said that was quite thick, so he is sending me for a repeat scan in 6 weeks to see if anything has changed, but either way he said he will be referring me to gyne as he suspect Endometriosis, but when I google thick lining all that comes up is cancer! Is a thick lining linked to endometriosis? Did any of you have a thick lining? If so what happened? How did they treat it?
Many thanks for any replies. Xxxx
