Hello there
You seem to have misunderstood the report.It should say that the endometrial lining thickness is 8mm.The thickening changes with various phases of the cycle.
Thats a normal thing.If the report says normal then there's nothing to worry about.

Hi welcome to health care magic

8mm of remains in the uterus, shows that the products of the conception are not totally expelled.. It will get expelled itself. But if there is foul smelling discharge, bleeding per vagina.. then do not neglect. suction evacuation may be necessary..

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
