Hi . Your Ultrasound reports shows that you have multiple follicles none of which is maturing. This happens in Polycystic Ovarian Diesease. In this disease there is a hormonal imbalance resulting in increase estrogen. This is causing increased thickness of your endometrium.
You need to get yourself checked with OBGyn. She will run some tests and start you on metformin and OCPs. This balance the hormones. Remember this disease also results in infertility until hormonal balance is achieved.

I hope this addresses your concern . Feel free to contact me if you have any other concerns
