Enlarged uterus! Very concerned about results
Wed, 04-13-2011 - 12:36pm

I have a history of menorraghia to as far back as I can remember. I am 46 & usually have my period every 23 days. Usually lasts for 2 heavy days & 5 days light spotting. I had an ablation done in 08 that was good for a year but then it went right back to my heavy periods. My uterus has also always been retroverted.

I just got back from my OB/GYN who tried to do an endometrial biopsy but said he "couldn't get in and now wants to schedule a D&C at Hospital. I am very concerned about a recent ultrasound report that reads as follows:

Findings(Transabdonimal) This study has a prior study for comparison dated 12/7/09. At that time, the endomentrium measured 7 mm. There is a small posterior leiomyoma that measured 1.2 cm. Currently, the uterus in in a normal anteverted anteflexed,orientation, but has enlarged since the prior study, currently measuring 13.9. x 7.8 x 5.6 cm compared to a prior measurement of 8.8x 6.9x5.9 cm. The endometrium measures 12 mm, which is mildly thickened and is considerably thicker than the previous measurement of 7 mm. The right ovary is normal measuring 2.1 x 2.2.x1.9 cm There is a cyst in the left adnexa measuring 1.7 x 1.2x1.3 cm. There is no free fluid within the cul-de-sac.

Conclusion: The uterus has gotten considerably larger than on the prior study and the endometrium is thicker than on the prior study, currently measuring 12 mm.

Welcome! I'm sorry I don't have the answers to your questions, but I'd definitely suggest calling your doctor's office and discussing them with either him or the nurse.

Best of luck.

Have you talked with your doctor about the results?
