The Cause Of The Thickening Of The Uterine Wall?
Good afternoon …
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The uterus has a thickness, which throughout the menstrual cycle will vary. In general, when a woman is menstruating, the lining of her uterus will decay so that it wears thin, then when menstruation has stopped, it will gradually thicken again until the maximum is a few moments before menstruation. When menstruation, it will decay and so on. Furthermore, the thickness of the uterine wall will be different in women who are menopausal.
Regarding your question, the actual answer will depend on what your menstrual phase is now. But roughly, 1.6 cm or 16 mm is indeed the upper limit of normality from the thickness of the uterine wall. So because there is still a limit to this, your doctor may feel the need to carry out further examinations, to ascertain whether the tendency is more towards normal or abnormalities. If it's normal, like we said before, there will be a time when it will thin out again.
But apart from that, what your doctor says is only a suggestion, in the sense that if you don't want to do it doesn't matter, apply if you don't have special complaints such as menstrual pain, irregular menstruation, or difficulty getting pregnant. If you are in doubt, you may also ask for opinions by checking with other obstetricians. If after the same recommendation, that is, you should do an HSG examination, then that means it is. But if the other doctor does not recommend, because the indications are not severe enough, for example, then again it is up to you about what steps you want to take. So, hopefully answering your question.
