how big was your uterus? and what's the normal size for one?

I got the path report from my dr today and was wondering, reading over it, what's the 'normal' size of things. None of these numbers mean anything to me without knowing. What's the normal size, in grams, for a uterus? What's the normal thickness for the endometrium (in centimeters), and myometrium? What color are they supposed to be? Anyone know how to actually read a path report or where to find the answers to what's 'normal'?

And since we're on the suject, how big was your uterus?

I think that I have heard that the uterus is about the size of a pear. Mind was the size of a melon which is too big. I had a precancerouse condition so it had to come out. I am still dealing with the whole experience. Take care.

Mine was 396 grams and I *believe* she told me normal was 80 - 100 grams. Mine was the size of a 12-14 week pregnancy.

Can't help on the other questions, but I'm expecting my path report any day now - maybe it will have some guidelines.

Hey counselorb - we're date sisters!

I have my path report. My uterus was 749 Gms! (1.6 lbs) Normal uterus weighs 80-100 Gms.
Not sure what is the normal thickness for the endometrium. Mine said 0.3cm.
My report said my endometrium and myometrium were tan-pink in color. I think that is normal.
My report is very hard to read too. Pathologist speak a different language!
Hope that helps.

Mine was a 20 week uterus that weight 3.5 lbls per the path report. My doc showed my with her hands what a normal size should be and I agree that it was about a pear size.

How did you get your path report? At my 4-week check-up my doctor said the pathology was fine, no problems, but I didn't get any report.

You can to ask for a copy. I asked for a path report and test results for my Fam DR. You can also ask for the surgical report.
The nurse gladly made copies for me.

JanaBailey,
You can ask your Dr. for a copy of the pathology report. They should give it to you, as it is rightfully yours, but some places will charge you to get a copy. Good luck. My uterus was small at 42 grams, but had numerous areas of adenomyosis, and my right tube and ovary had several small cysts plus the 6 cm dermoid cyst.
