Hello. Welcome to HCM:
At 40 years of age, an endometrial thickness of more than one 1 cms, needs a biopsy. If you are not menopausal, it can simply be the proliferative phase. If the climacteric phase (preceeding phase to menopause) has begun, wherein you may have irregular erratic cycles, it will be helpful to have a biopsy as it will rule out any abnormal uterine proliferation. Currently, there are hormonal medications for treating this. You can discuss with your gynecologist about these.
Take care.
