Hi doctor,

My mother, who is 50 years, has been complaining of painful uterine contractions. We took her to the doctor and she prescribed Urispas tablets. Also, told us to follow up once her period finishes as her endometrium thickness was abnormal. We did the follow up and I have attached the USG report. She has also been complaining of bloating and heaviness below the stomach area. Please do advice me on what modes of action should be taken. Is this something to worry about?

Welcome to

I have seen your mother's reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and gone through her history.

  • In my opinion her USG is fine and showing some small fibroids.
  • She should get her urine culture and sensitivity test done to rule out the infection and for further management.

Thank you doctor,

What can be done about the fibroids? Is her endometrium lining thickness abnormal?

Welcome back to

  • Yes, her endometrial thickness should be less than 8 mm at her age. It is a little bit high, but not very high. It could be due to fibroid also.

Please go through the biopsy report and let me know if there is anything worthy of concern. Thanks a lot!

No need to worry about it.
