It is necessary to be cautious about the thickened endometrium in the post-menopausal period. One of the reasons for this can be HRT. Progesterone can help reduce the thickness of the endometrium. If the thickness persists after a repeat scan then ideally an endometrial biopsy is to be done to rule out endometrial hyperplasia and the risk of cancer.

Hi thanks for your response. I am working very closely w/my dr but i have a question mainly is there a likelihood of NOT bleeding w/ the progesterone.
Overall I think he's tending more towards D&C along w/ the biopsy.

Hi I just found my password& wanted to post update incase anyone still watching this thread.
Ultrasound in jan&followup in july-both 2014 revealed 3mm.
HOWEVER another scan in sept showed a 5mm stripe. Is that change significant? I also may have atrophic endometrium(??).
