What causes your uterine lining to thin before 30 if you've never had kids?

Hi there, don't know if anyone can help me. For the past few years my period has gotten lighter and lighter. Some times only lasting one day. Now I have always had heavy periods so I was very concerned when this started happening. Went to the the gyno when it first happened and was told my body was changing because I was getting older. When it continuously happened I finally got some testing done. Checked my hormone levels and did a ultrasound of my uterus and ovaries. The only thing that was found was my uttering lining was very thin and I was asked if I had ever had children and I have not. Never really told why it was thin just said nothing to be concerned about until I start trying to have children. Now I am 30 still having almost no period. I have had some discomfort lately almost like I have a UTI but it doesn't hurt or burn when I urinate. Also I feel very, how do I say this with out sounding groase, loose lately, not when I'm having sex but just in general. Like I'm more open than I should be when I walk around its almost like there is air in there. Very weird feeling. Also I have developed some what of a odor, not every day just some days. Could I possibly have some type of bacteria infection that is not yeast or a UTI? I don't have insurance right now or I would be going to the doctor. Any ideas? Sorry this is so long.

Hi Anonymous,

There are many reasons why this occurs and you can read more information about it here http://www.drmalpani.com/thinlining.htm.


Since you are trying to get pregnant, you will have to follow up with your treating physician.

The other issue you are explaining may be a bacterial infection if you are experiencing a fish odor while you are having sex. You will have to follow up with your physician for that as well as this is treated with antibiotics. I hope this information helps.
