Customer Question

I had a transvaginal ultrasound on day 23 of my cycle and the endometrium was 14mm, the sonographer said usually 12mm is the upper limit. Do I have a problem, or was she just being cautious/conservative?

Thanks for answer. What is actually classed as irregular periods? Since I reached 35 yrs old, my periods have ranged from day 25 start to a day 35 start. I have never missed a month entirely though. My periods have never been totally regular, anywhere between 3 days late or 3 days early ever since I started at 11 yrs old. Is that acceptable as I have never been a 28 day cycle person?

Normal cycle ranges from 25 to 35 days. 28 days cycle is most common.
