Proliferative endometrium means your uterine lining (endometrium) is in the first half of the cycle. The menstrual cycle consists of two phases. The first phase, under the influence of estrogen, is a proliferative phase. While under this influence of the estrogen, the endometrium is called "proliferative endometrium," because the cells are multiplying and the tissue is growing.
The term disordered is no medical term and it may mean that the endometrium is proliferating too fast, or beyond the limits of normal growth. You should discuss it with your doctor regarding the biopsy report.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
