The doctor gives the medicine taken for 7 days, if 7 days do not menstruate … I must curettage. but thank God I menstruated on the 10th day and continued my cyclo proginova (hormone drug) medicine on the 5th day of my menstrual cycle. interval of 5 days the drug cyclo runs out, I menstruate again.

Endometrial hyperplasia is an abnormality in the endometrium where there is abnormal thickening of the endometrium which is stimulated by the hormone estrogen without the role of progesterone in it. In general, during the menstrual cycle, the roles of these two female hormones are very important in assisting the regulation of the menstrual cycle in which endometrial thickening and decay will continue as long as the roles of these two hormones are balanced. So that when the effect of progesterone is not going well, ovulation is not working, then the thickening of the endometrium is not followed by the endometrial clinging, so that the uterine wall is thickened. In general, this condition is a condition that is benign or not at risk of cancer, but under certain conditions, cell changes occur atypically or that leads to malignancy with a higher risk of becoming cancerous.
Patients with this condition often experience comorbid complaints such as:
1. do not experience menstruation in several cycles
2. if menstruation, menstrual bleeding will be more than usual or menstruation runs longer than usual
3. There is bleeding between two menstrual cycles
4. fertility fertility
Diagnosis is made by further examination by a doctor either by ultrasound or biopsy where uterine thickening is obtained which can be accompanied by cells at risk for cancer or not. Handling with hormonal and curette can help control this complaint. Thus, the administration of hormonal drugs with a good response can be continued for the next 6 months. So if the medicine given by the doctor runs out, then you should make a return visit to your doctor or control back to your obstetrician. This is necessary to continue the care and handling that you have lived at the beginning of this time. The process of treatment and treatment can take a long time but this depends on the type of endometrial hyperplasia, clinical conditions, and depends on the results of your own obstetrician's examination.
Periodic treatment and periodic evaluations with a long period of time or about 6 months are needed to ascertain whether there is a risk of cell change into atypia which is the risk of uterine cancer. Therefore, every certain period, the doctor will continue the evaluation and risk examination with an ultrasound examination and assisted with a biopsy. The results of examinations and evaluations carried out by the doctor will be a reference for further treatment and treatment for you.
Therefore, you should continue your medication until the doctor makes sure the medicine you are taking can be stopped. At present, visiting or controlling returning to the doctor is a useful next step for you.
