Hi, Harsha hope you are fine & will remain in good health. This is a pleasure to hear you are a strong lady, in a good health & not on any medication. I expect you know that after the age of 50, periods stop in women ( The menopause
). Exact age is variable in different women & may be any year until 55. Our endometrium ( The inner most layer of uterus
) shed every month in monthly bleeds. If periods stop for sometime ( more than a month) it will grow thicker. At menopause, as hormones responsible for growth of this layer are decreasing therefore even in the absence of periods it remain thin (< 4mm) but if it is more than that it is of concern. We need to take some tissue from this layer to make sure that the thickness is benign (i.e. due to delayed periods before menopause) & not a malignant growth. Please remember even if it comes out to be malignant ( God Forbid) it is easily treatable at this early stage. So, no need to take tension. Just follow your doctors advise & hope for the best. Best of luck.
