Endometrial stripe or thickening

I was wondering for the postmenopausal woman, what should the endometrial stripe or thickness measure. Some books say less than 5 and some say normal is between 5 and 8. I was wondering what the measurements were for any of the women on this website and if anyone has had a thickened lining in postmenopause?
Thanks for your timely reply

Endometrial stripe or thickening

I am an ultrasound tech and by my book it says 4mm to 10 mm is considered clinically acceptable for menopausal and 4mm to 12mm in menstruating women. It also says the endometrial size varies due to the hormone regimin that you may be on if you are menopausal.

I know from experience doctors vary in what they think is within normal range and new studies come along all of the time. So what you may read in some books may not be the up-to-date information.

I am not menopausal but my endo was measuring consistantly above 2cm. Even a month after having a D & C it measured this. I had a TVH last Monday and now will have peace of mind from this problem.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I think you got a clear answer re acceptable measurements from Loriah. I am postmenapausal and last when I had some spotting my gyn did a vag songram; my reading was 33mm which of course was very high. It was just one of several tests done to help my gyn and later gyn/onc determine what might be causing the problem.
Blessings, peggiesue

Loriah,
Thanks for that information. I had a stripe measurement of 8 and Im postmenopausal. I had a little spotting several weeks ago for a few days and since then things have been fine..no spotting even with intense sex!!! How fun is that! (lol). Any way, thank you for the information cause all I saw on the net was it should measure less than 5 and a few places I saw that 5 -8 was normal for postmenopausal women. Anyway, I go for a biopsy on Monday since the stripe was 8.
If you have anymore "inside" info to share, Im listening.!!
Thanks again and God bless you
Peace and Veggies
