Hello Aruna and welcome to HCM,

I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.

I understand your concern. Before any further advice it would help to know your age, previous pregnancies and deliveries if any, desire for future child bearing and duration of symptoms.

Neverthless, you had an episode of bleed had a D and C and it revealed proliferative phase. The phase depends upon how many days after the bleeding the D and C was done. Proliferative phase may be a normal result in some part of menstrual cycle and abnormal in other. However you findings only indicate an estrogen phase or presence of estrogen hormone. It does not mean that there is cancer. So do not worry.

If you do not want a hysterectomy, progesterone preparations, endometrial ablation and uterine artery embolization are some other available procedures.

As of now, I suggest that you discuss this with another doctor and show all other reports like ultrasound etc. A course of progesterone could be taken for 3 months and then the cycles observed. Tablet devery 10mg twice daily for 21 days beginning from day 7 of the cycle is given for 3 months. A pill free duration of 7 days is allowed for menses to occur and the tablet is restarted. If you miss tablets then you will have irregular bleeding, so they MUST be taken daily.
Please get it prescribed by your doctor after discussing the things. If the bleeding recurs after stopping, a hysterectomy may be an option or long term oral contraceptive pills may be used as per consultation with a doctor.

You may also ask me any query and I am here to help you.

Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
