I have been experiencing post menopausal bleeding and am in the process of being evaluated for that. My gyn is, in his words "very, very, very worried" about me. He is 100% sure I have, at the very least, endometrial hyperplasia, meaning a thick uterine lining, even though I had an ablation 16 years ago - apparently, it can grow back. According to him, 100% of fat people are still producing estrogen (I know that fat stores estrogen), which causes the overgrowth of the endometrium.

I have been trying to google and find out if it's possible to be fat and have a thin lining, but I can't find anything about that. Anyone know?

Also, has anyone been through this and how did it go? I am so upset and worried that I've not had a good sleep in weeks. Unfortunately, it's looking like Jan at the least before I have answers on my situation, as I cannot get in for an u/s or D&C/hysteroscopy before then (he was going to try to get a biopsy in office, but could not see my cervix).

BTW, before it gets mentioned, he's super nice and while he has asked if I've considered bariatric surgery, he's backed off when I told him I'm not interested. I wish my GP would be so courteous! :mad: (TBH, I have thought about it more than once, but it scares the daylights out of me)
