Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

The endometrial lining varies in thickness and texture with the menstrual cycle. Thick and hyperechogenic endometrium is usually seen on later days of period, after 16th day of cycle.
As your endometrial thickness is 1.6mm, which is usually seen at the beginning of cycle. Ovaries are normal according to your report, polycystic changes are not seen in scan. It means there is a improvement in cystic ovaries.other findings are with in normal range, not to worry.

Hope this helps you.
