The average adult uterus is 3 inches long, 2 inches wide and 1 inch thick, or 7.6 cm long, 5.1 cm. wide and 2.5 cm. thick.

Re: What is an average size uterus?

pink rocks is correct, I'm currently waiting 6 weeks for my preop appointment to schedule my hysterectomy because my uterus is over 14cm x 8cm x 7 cm and then I have 2 large fibroids that are 6 & 7cm as well, I'm tired of the heavy periods, cramps that make it almost impossible to walk, keeps me awake all night, backache.... I didn't think that sounded so big until I made a 3 D model of the actual size for an average uterus, to my 2005 results to my 2009 results (almost doubled in size in the last 4 years).

What is the average size of an ovary? Does 2 cm sound right?

Ovaries are oval shaped and, in the human, measure approximately 3 cm x 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm.

Re: What is an average size uterus?

I was also wondering what the average size of a normal uterus was. I had my hysterectomy last week - my uterus weighed over 10 pounds. My first visit is tomorrow - I will see the pathology reports then, but one of my fibroids was 8.5 cm and there were 4 or 5 about 6-6.5 cms each. I feel so much better already, and am glad I finally had the surgery. Recovery is better every day, especially since I quit taking the narcotic and am taking only ibuprofen.

Re: What is an average size uterus?

I was under the impression that the uterus is about the size of your fist. For ps15, I was told that after my hysterectomy, I had lost about 10-12 lbs. My doctor states my uterus was about the size of a 5 month pregnancy. It is a good feeling to be on the other side of the bridge. Best of health to you.

I was curious about this too since my Dr said I have an unusually large uterus about 10.9cm. I have been in so much pain. Hysterectomy by DaVinci is scheduled for Oct 28th,2010. Hoping for great results.
