Princeline, you don't say how old you are, so the answers could be somewhat different depending on what's causing your issues with it.

Here's a website about menopause that discusses Thick Uterine Wall Menopause symptoms:


The discussion says that many women experience this, an overactive production of uterine lining, for various reasons. No treatment is standard, since every individual case is so different. It's so good that you are seeing your doctor, instead of waiting and wondering. You might be dealing with anything from benign fibroid tumors, which while harmless can be quite large and painful, to more serious types of growths.

Here is a paragraph about the trouble that fibroids can cause:

"Interestingly, thick uterine wall menopause symptoms can sometimes reveal fibroids as small as a pinhead or as large as eight inches across. However, the average size of uterine fibroids is two-thirds of an inch. These tumors will grow very slowly, which are stimulated by hormones, primarily estrogen. Therefore, when you go through menopause and the body produces fewer hormones, the fibroids are generally smaller. On the other hand, women in their productive years where the body is producing greater levels of estrogen, the tumors will probably be larger."

Here is a medhelp.com Q&A regarding the same issue:


In terms of your uterus "closing," what actually happens is that after menopause and the decline of estrogen, the cervix "shrinks" and can become, in effect, closed. It is called cervical stenosis. Netwellness.org says this is a relatively common event as well. It says a doctor who is trying to biopsy the lining of the uterus may not even be able to get the biopsy instrument past the closed cervix. Often, ultrasound becomes the next diagnostic tool used.

If you are experiencing these symptoms and they are not a part of menopause, please write back! In some cases such things also interfere with fertility issues.
