I recently had a pelvic and abdominal ultrasound last week. The report stated my endometrial lining was 14.8 mm and the lining was somewhat heterogeneous. I was told my lining was too thick for being on day 10 of my cycle. Two doctors attempted to do a sonohystogram but were unsuccessful getting a catheter in. Could you please tell me if my lining is too thick for day 10 of my cycle and what does it mean my lining is somewhat heterogeneous? I having been trying to get pregnant since last June and I had a miscarriage in November.

Hello - the lining of the uterus can vary in size and in general may be between 7 and 14 mm by the time of ovulation. If your doctors have described it as being heterogenous they may be thinking there is a lesion within the uterine cavity e.g a polyp. If they were not successful getting in with a catheter they may have to put a scope into the uterus. If indeed there is a polyp it should be removed at that time as there may be an increased risk of infertility and even miscarriage.
Hope that helps,
