Default OT - good ladynews

Went to the hospital for my hysteroscopy this morning.

They had my results of my ultra sounds through and were so happy with them, they decided not to do the h.scopy. So I'm happy on all counts! I am happy with the u/s, because it was taken by someone under training/supervision, so it was very careful, very right, very scrutinized.

My something, sorry to be so ignorant, womb lining? is only 1mm and they don't usually bother to test further unless it's at least 6. As my only symptom is a menopause that won't lie down and die, they decided not to proceed.

I would like to find out why Flo keeps popping up but I suspect I'm not going to get an answer.

Thankyou for the kind thoughts.

That's great news, Ailidh.

Definitely something to be celebrated with a non-food treat!

Well you are in luck--I seem to be really educated about this lately!

Your endometrial lining being only 1 mm is a good thing! It means there's not any cells going crazy in there and piling up to give you problems.

If I had to take a guess, I bet some of your unusual bleeding is from losing weight. Estrogen is stored in fat, so when you burn fat, your estrogen has to go somewhere! And it's usually in the form of extra cycles.

It's good to keep in touch with your physician if it persists, becomes painful, or gets heavier.

Glad to hear your good news!

Wonderful news!

And Jen, that makes so much sense about the estrogen and fat burning... My TOM can be non-existent for months, but let me start losing just a few pounds and it's like someone gave the "cue the uterus" signal.

Wow, that makes so much sense! And I am thrilled you don't need an h-scopy, those are less than comforable, if you get my drift. Yay for uterine health!

Yep, I'd also imagine that some of the wonkiness could be from weight loss. Fat cells are estrogen-storers. I have PCOS, and when I was losing weight, my symptoms almost entirely went away, because I had extra estrogen going on (after 8 months of no TOM, suddenly I became regular as clockwork again). Later, once my weight stabilized, the symptoms came back.

Glad it wasn't uncomfortable and that they found nothing wrong!

Thanks, gals!

I'd love to try and work out the link between fat and oestrogen. My fat, anyway.
2002 - 2004 lost 107lbs. I guess but don't remember that around 2004 was when Flo got less attentive.
2004 - 2008 regained 75lbs. From 2005 - 2007, no Flo time at all. In late 2007 she came back. Had the tests then and all clear.
2008 - 2009 regained another 15lbs. From late 2007 to present (April anyway) Flo visits about 3 times a year.
2009 end Jan to now lost 39lbs. Flo still visits 3 times a year.

I don't see a pattern. I'm not anxious, just curious.

Ailidh, I'm so glad for you! You must be very relieved. Stay well.
