Thick uterus lining - terrified!

I don't know if anyone is knowledgable on this but I've just got back from a vaginal ultrasound which showed that I have thick lining of my womb. I went because of had a few heavy periods since having my second child. However we're currently trying for our 3rd and I'm 36.

The sonographer would not tell me anything other than I had a thickening and she could not see what was "inside it" causing it. Of course I have come away and googled and am now terrified I have the C word!!

I have no idea how thick it was. I am due on my period any day now and had a bit of spotting after the scan. So could it just be thicker because I'm about to have a period or could a pregnancy make it thicker. Very worried!

Hi Triangle,

I presume the sonographer knew you were reaching the end of your cycle and that you are ttc? Did she give you a letter for your GP or any measurement in mm? Did she mention a corpus luteum?

Hi alibaba

Thanks for the reply. Was given no information apart from there being thickening if the lining and that she couldn't tell me any more and it would be forwarded to my gp. I'm not pregnant as have tested today and it's a resounding negative.

Try not to worry, I know that's easier said than done.

We have had a few cancer scares in our family over the past year or so and everything turned out to be fine. I lived on Google thinking the worst.

Are you going back to your GP?
