  • Talk to your OBGYN. You may have thickening of the uterus lining & need a D&C.

  • Maybe an ovarian cyst?

    I would talk to your doctor for sure. There are lots of possibilities, some of them no big deal, others kind of major. Talk to your doctor so you can find out what it is and what you can do about it, if anything.
