Indistinct Endometrium on Transvaginal Ultrasound/sonogram

Hello, I just received a copy of the results from my trans-vaginal ultrasound/sonogram from the radiologist that was done last week. I'm 49 yrs old and post menopause.  The results read: “small chronic left poster lateral wall fibroid. Indistinct endometrium. Otherwise unremarkable study.”
What does "indistinct endometrium" mean? From my understanding, it seems they could not measure/read my endometrium …. I've had 3 D&Cs and several biopsies in the past 6 years for endometrium thickening but never have received a report with "Indistinct endrometrium." My most recent was an office hystocopy six months ago that was benign due to post menopausal bleeding. Is this normal? Should I discuss the further with my gyn?

How are you? What are the symptoms present?  Indistinct endometrium may suggest inadequate or obscured reading upon visualization of the entire endometrium. For proper evaluation, it is best that you discuss the results with your doctor. Aside from your medical history, symptoms as well as results of other diagnostic tests are also important considerations. Take care and do keep us posted.

Thank you so much for your response. I did call my gyn-onc.'s office and spoke with his nurse. She did say he had reviewed the test but since he didn't say anything there was probably not a concern. Maybe because  the biopsy I had six months ago was negative.....I guess the ultrasound/sonogram was not a concern. I do know to contact his office if I have more  bleeding.  Right now I am having gastro problems.....sigh
Thank you so much again. I'm praying about whether I should schedule an appt. to discuss the results. I don't want to turn into a pain in the tush.
