Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Usually in postmenopausal age group the endometrial thickness should be less than 4 mm.
But in women who are taking HRT, the endometrial thickness can be up to 8mm sometimes.
Endometrial thickness of above 8mm can indicate some pathology.
The change of anticoagulant can be one cause for her spotting.
So, when you consult your doctor discuss about:
-The endometrial thickness mentioned in ultrasound.
-The possible causes for it.
-Whether endometrial biopsy is needed or not.
-What are the investigations she suggests and the treatment options available.
-Regarding continuation of HRT.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

My mother s USG Report just came. She is in her menopausal age. The report reveals Uterus is bulky and shows normal, central endometrial echoes. No mass is seen. Should I go for any other Investigation. Or should I take her to visit a gynaecologist. Please guide me.

I am getting a uterine biopsy soon and have a very low tolerance for pain. I have never had children and my cervix is tight. I am 59 years old. I was give Cytotec to take the night before. I understand this can cause severe cramping. When I did get my period before menopause the cramps were severe - I had to take heavy doses of Advil 5 days BEFORE it started and then Darvon on the first 2 days. I thought for the biopsy I would take Mobic 5 days before and then Percocet a hour before the biopsy ( I have discussed this with my dr.) Any other suggestions? I am a wreck! Thank you!
