Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Thickening of the endometrium is not a definitive sign of pregnancy, It can be seen frequently in disorders like dtsfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) which is a common cause of irregular periods. Moreover, you mention that you had unprotected sexual intercourse eight weeks ago and have had two periods after that. So, it is unlikely that the endometrial thickening is a sign of pregnancy. I would advise you to consult a gynaecologist for your problem of irregular periods.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen

I have been having pelvic pain for the last 2 months with fluttering in my lower stomach & pelvic area. It feels like it do when you re pregnant and baby is moving. But negative blood and urine pregnancy test. My menstrual is regular and on time each month. My gyno ordered transabdominal & transvaginal ultrasounds for pelvic pain & gallbladder. She called after she got the results and said my gallbladder was negative and my pelvic area was all good. But i was still having pains so I got a copy of the reports on my own. I m no doctor but something don t seem right about the report. Here is a copy: Findings: TRANSABDOMINAL: The uterus measures 11 x 5.1 x 6.0 cm. The endometrium is 1.1 cm in thickness. No definate myometrial masses are noted. The right ovary measures 2.5 x 1.9 x 1.7 cm. The left ovary measures 2.5 x 2.2 x 1.5 cm. There are multiple small follicles in both ovaries. There is no evidence of an adnexal mass or free fluid. TRANSVAGINAL: The myometrium is heterogeneous. Several small fibers are noted in the anterior and posterior fundus. The largest posteriorly measures 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.6 cm. The endometrium is 0.7 cm in thickness. The right ovary measures 2.5 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm & the left ovary measures 2.8 x 1.8 x 2.5 cm. There is no evidence of an adnexal mass or free fluid. IMPRESSION: 1. Enlarged fibroid uterus with 2-subcentimeter fibroids seen in the anterior and posterior fundus. 2. Normal appearance of the ovaries, adnexa and endometrium. Could I be pregnant and they just missed it. I heard you can have a period & still be pregnant! The only time me & my husband had unprotected sex was in march. I dont want any more children & we are usually careful.
