Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Thickened endometrium is found in:
1. early pregnancy
2. Polycystic ovarian syndrome
3. Endometrial hyperplasia
4. Endometrial carcinoma
Since your beta HCG values are normal, pregnancy is ruled out.
I would suggest you to get an endometrial biopsy or D &C done so that the histopathological examination of the endometrium can be done and appropriate treatment can be done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
