Enlarged Uterus After Menopause

My head is spinning in all directions right now! I had a physical last Thursday.....during the pelvic exam the doctor said your uterus feels large, I'm going to check it rectally. After that she said she was sending me for a vaginal ultrasound. I didn't think too much about it, I've had an enlarged uterus before. BUT, it was before menopause and my period was due, so it went back to normal. So of course I got on the internet when it actually sunk in. Today I tried calling my doctor to ask if she could give me more information about her exam. Of course, she's not in today!
My periods stopped when I was 57. (Older than most) I have not had any bleeding or spotting. I have been getting hot flashes, not really a flash, I get hot and stay that way for awhile. I have noticed some urine leakage when I laugh, cough or sneeze, but didn't mention any of this to the doctor because I thought at this age (61) it was normal. I'm trying to remember our conversation at the time and I think she mentioned fibroid tumor and said they could get quite large. Also heard the term uterine mass. Like I say, I wasn't really thinking about it while I was in the office...that came later. I would be grateful for any insight....after 3 days of fretting anything would help! Can there be a problem even though I have no spotting or bleeding? Thanks in advance!

I'm glad you joined so you can do some research and share with women who can relate from their own experiences.

For now you can use the Hysterectomy Options and Alternatives message board. Start new threads there to ask questions and to ask for support. There's information to explore in the Hysterectomy Options Checkpoint, too.
