The interval phase occurs over a short period of 24-48 hours.
1-2 days following ovulation, there is a peak of luteinising hormone and increased progesterone, which brings on the secretory changes.
As the name suggests, there is brisk cell division with prominent mitotic activity in both the glands and the stroma.
ENDOMETRIUM, BIOPSY: - VERY SCANT STRIPPED NON-PROLIFERATIVE COLUMNAR EPITHELIUM, PROBABLY FROM THE LOWER UTERINE SEGMENT. - STRIPPED ENDOCERVICAL EPITHELIUM AND ENODOCERVICAL MUCOSA WITHIN NORMAL LIMITS. COMMENT: A re-biopsy should be considered within the clinical context.

Most pelvic ultrasounds are performed using both the transabdominal and transvaginal approaches.
Transabdominal ultrasound involves scanning through your lower abdomen.
Endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial carcinoma are dealt with in separate articles.
An overview of gynecologic pathology is in the gynecologic pathology article.Variation in the cycle is usually due to differences in the proliferative phase as collapse of the secretory phase into menstruation if fertilisation does not take place is relatively more predictable than the proliferative phase.In the endometrium, proliferative activity occurs even before the complete cessation of menstruation, i.e. The glands at this earlier stage are relatively straight or, at most, slightly coiled and are found within relatively loose endometrial stroma.In current practice, the device that is most often used is the Pipelle endometrial aspirator.To ensure a maximum amount of tissue for morphological reading, the specimen should be placed on a piece of lens paper or some other adhesive tissue and then immersed in the fixative.
