Hello dear,
Thanks for the query, heterogenous stripe could be a FOCAL ENDOMETRIAL LESION, and your endometrial thickness is just 10mm( ok for a premenopausal), so I suggest that you can have some further tests like SIS- saline infusion sonography or Hysteroscopy and biopsy of that focal lesion.
Hope I answered your question, Kindly reply me if you have any further queries or any comments. I will be very happy to help you.
