My new fertility doc thinks I might have endometrial hyperplasia. What does that mean, and what is the most likely solution? How can this effect my fertility? I go for a biopsy this week to see if there are any abnormal cells... Im a bit nervous about the whole thing! Thanks to anyone who knows about this!
Endometrial hyperplasia is a thickening of the lining of the womb, caused by overgrowth of the cells that line the womb. It is not cancer. But in some women it can develop into womb cancer.

Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia or polyps a precursor to cancer?
I'm 44 and had heavy menstrual bleeding. Ultrasounds and MRI showed three small fibroids, focal complex hyperplasia and polyps. I've been trying natural remedies which have improved menses dramatically, no longer heavy, nor as painful. Should I still have hysteroscopy or other procedure done, or does the resolution of symptoms mean I'm OK?
Not a precursor to cancer. Chances are the pain and bleeding will return. Interuterine scraping is another option, but I hear it is painful and not always effective. Hysterectomy may be another option for you if you just want to be done all together. (+ info
Will i be able to conceive if I have endometrial hyperplasia?
Hi, I'm 26 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS last July and have gone to a fertility clinic. When my dr. examined me she saw a thickened lining. She gave me Provera to clean it out and told me that if it is thick on my next visit I will have to have a D&C. I read a lot about endometrial hyperplasia and was wondering if anyone out there has had this and was able to conceive? My husband and I really would like to have our own children.

Has anyone ever been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia, and been able to have children?
My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for years. When I finally went to the doctor about my unusual cycles, I was diagnosed by a specialist as having endometrial hyperplasia. She didn't really explain to me what it was, other than it could be cancer. The only treatment she gave me was birth control to regulate my periods, but I stopped taking it, for obvious reasons.
Anyone ever been through this?
What are our chances of ever having children?
I had endometrial hyperplasia (although my GYN used the term uterine hyperplasia.) I'm sorry, but you need to control the thickness of the endometrium by controlling your periods.
My GYN told me hyperplasia put me at risk for cancer. In addition, mine went untreated (because my symptoms were misinterpreted by GP doctor) so I got to the point where big bloody globs fell into my underwear without warning. Trust me, you cannot live your life that way.
The preferred way to control this is with birth control pills. However, I resisted "the pill". So I started by taking progesterone pills for about 10 days every month or two. This did cause the endometrium to bleed out regularly and adequately controlled the hyperplasia. However, I had side effects from the medicine. It gave me uncontrollable appetite and I gained weight. So I went on the pill. I'm glad I did. I haven't noticed any side effects.
You could consider the progesterone treatment. But I'm pretty sure your doctor won't prescribe it unless he/she is sure you are not pregnant and won't become pregnant. But if you are really dedicated to this, you might work out a schedule with him/her. If you abstain from intercourse for about 2 weeks and pass a pregnancy test (negative result) then is might be OK to force the period with progesterone.
I'm not saying that avoiding "the pill" means you can achieve pregnancy. I think we get hyperplasia because our hormones are not cycling normally. That might mean you don't ovulate anyway.
For any woman with irregular cycles who wants to achieve pregnancy, I strongly recommend Natural Family Planning (NFP) classes. Practicing NFP will show you the pattern of your hormones and when/if you ovulate. Google "natural family planning" and "classes to find one near you. (+ info
For woman who has endometrial hyperplasia,what kind of food should avoid and take?
How about tufu and bean product? Should avoid also?
no meals in specific to be avoided. just avoid fats - it is a source of extra ovarian estrogen. (+ info
What is the Treatment for complex endometrial Hyperplasia?
In most cases, endometrial hyperplasia can be treated with medication that is a form of the hormone progesterone.
You and your doctor will find a form of progesterone and a dose that is right for you.
If the problem persists, more treatment (such as other medication or surgery) may be used.
Good luck :) (+ info
Has anyone diagnosed with complex endometrial hyperplasia without atypical cells had successful conception?
successful pregnancy, and delivery?
I was recently diagnosed with this and hysterectomy was suggested, but I want at least 1 more child. Just wondering what my chances are.
How common is Complex Endometrial Hyperplasia? I was diagnosed with this recently by my OB-GYN.?
I am being treated with a medicine called Provera, which is actually Progesterone. The purpose is to keep the uterine lining from over-growing. I had to have a D&C to remove 2 polyps and a lot of the uterine lining. Thank you for any input or for sharing your experiences with this.
not common but not rare either. more common in obese, diabetics, women who dont have monthly periods - but can happen to others. usually treated with provera for woman who wants to have children, otherwise sometimes a hysterectomy as it does have a risk of becoming uterine cancer (+ info
