Endometrial stripe

I am soon to be 54 and have had only 1 period per year from 2001 - 2005 then nothing since.  Recently I have been experiencing period symptoms, i.e. tender breasts and cramping.  I went and had a travaginal US showing my enlarged uterus of approx 10 x 8 x 7 and fibroids measuring 5.9x5.5x4.9 and two smaller ones 4.3x2.9 and 1.7 x 2.1.  Ovaries appear normal.  Endometrial stripe 11mm (which concerns me)  blood tests show that my fsh was 38.7, Prolactin 8.5, Estradiol 17 Beta 150, Endometrial biopsy showed NEG. My CA125 was 8. (low).  All tests show no signs of cancer yet I a worried about the endo stripe of 11mm.  The specialist that I saw said that I was Peri menopausal but the FSH showed I was Post menopausal, and he also said the the stripe in a perimenopausal could be <20-25 and be normal.  Should I have other tests done?  Could you enlighten me on the thickness of the stripe?

Concerned.
