User :   they said
User :   said the uterus is very small and the lining is very thin
Doctor :   Were there any cysts or something else?
User :   they could not detect it
User :   nothing could be made out much of the report
User :   must say
User :   so they asked me to do this Hcg test
Doctor :   If these were the findings then probably there could be any infection or because of lots of fluid also it may be showing up. You should definitely get your hormonal levels also checked up as LH, FSH and Prolactin to see the cause.
Doctor :   Also USG scan at this moment would have shown up the baby if you were pregnant.
User :   the doc had asked me to do the above tests also
User :   the results of which are not available with me at the moment
Doctor :   Get yourself properly examined by a gynaecologist. there may be chances of having Menopause also.
Doctor :   Sometimes because of hormonal alterations also the menopause starts early
User :   then wt could that reading 1.2 mean?
Doctor :   There are normal HCG levels in our body. It may be that it is raised because of alteration in other hormones.
Doctor :   Or because of infection
User :   ok, need not be pregnancy only.
User :   means it has to be read in conjuction with other reports also
Doctor :   No in such cases it does not seem like
Doctor :   Definitely along with other hormonal and USG reports
User :   Thanks doctor, shall go for a proper check up.
Doctor :   Did you get your Thyroid levels done?
User :   it read as 5.31
Doctor :   Is it T3, T4 or TSH
User :   sorry doc, no idea about it.
User :   But i recollect my doc saying "that means she is on the border"
