Hello priyanka...
Why you got investigatio??
Were you bleeding heavily whole month??
Here is normal endometrial thickness of whole month-
Depending on a hormonal profile, menstrual cycle is divided into 3 phases with following characteristics-
In the 1st phase, both hormones - estrogen and progesterone - are at low level. It lasts for the first 5 days of the cycle (after the end of last menstrual period) and the endometrial thickness is about 1-4mm.
In the 2nd phase, estrogen hormone is dominating and the thickness is approximately 4-14mm. The can last about 10 days.
In the 3rd phase, progesterone level is dominating and thickness is about 14-26mm. The length of this phase is around 14 days of the ovarian cycle (in an average 28-day ovarian cycle).
So, now you please explain briefly so that we can help you more...
