hi, I was asking about hormone levels being normal but uterine lining is thick?
Thank you for contacting Just Answer

What is your question please?

Hormone levels changed depending on where you are in your cycle, and these changes exist to change the endometrium.

Therefore despite being told levels are normal - this 'normal' range changes from week to week.

If however the endometrium is thickened and this does not correlate with your cycle, then this can suggest Endometrial cancer and should be biopsied. Many people can have a thickened endometrium that has no meaning, but the biopsy is used to exclude any concerning cause.
