I am 33 year old female diagonised with pcos 8 years back, I concieved normally and have 6 year old child now. I was put on BCP for 1.5 years i used to get lot of headached so i am now off pills . My periods are irregular with clots and bleeding. Last month i didnt get periods for 50 days so went for scanning and was told that my endometrium thickness is 16mm and may be polypoidal in nature after 2 days i had my periods and after 12 days i again went for scanning now they are telling me that my endometrium is 7mm in thickness. Since i went for private consultation on the first visit scanning only they told me to get hystrescopy done . I am very afraid do u really think i require hysteroscopy pls help

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Thickened endometrium is no surprise with PCOS and explains the menstrual irregularities as well. Get a hysteroscopy to have a better idea of what is going on and then treat the symptoms accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
