Have irregular, abnormal bleeding. Endometrium thick, ovulating. Hysteroscopy can be done after abnormal bleeding?

Hello, i had some irregular bleeding (i had an extra period in 1 month) and my doctor ordered an ultrasound . now doctor wants to do a hysteroscopy because she wants to know why there was abnormal bleeding. She also said endometrium was a little thick (8.6MM) and i was ovulating. Is it normal to do a hysteroscopy after 1 month of abnormal bleeding?

hello and welcome,

I understand your concern well.
The decision depends upon many factors like age, menopausal status complete ultrasound report and examination findings. If a women is past her menopause and then begins to bleed, a hysteroscopy is justified with a thick endometrium to rule out cancer.

In another women, young, still menstruating, a thickness of 8.6 is not much. So here a more conservative approach is needed.

So kindly upload a detailed history and ultrasound report for a better analysis.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
