Does anyone know approximately how much a normal size uterus weighs?

Uterus Weight

Hi Rita,

I tried a web search and found this description on the National Uterine Fibroids Foundation site:

  Quote:
A "normal" uterus is typically the size and shape of an upside down pear and weighs somewhere around 6 ounces. Its dimensional size is about eight to ten centimeters by six centimeters (roughly 3-4 inches by 2 ˝ inches).
I hope it helps.

(((((Rita)))))

Hi! I just wanted to add that my GYN said a normal uterus weighs 50 grams. Thought that might help in case your path report comes back in grams and not ounces...with this brain I would never be able to convert it from one to the other!

Karen, thanks for that info...I think I'm gonna check out that site!

Love & s

Hi Tina,

Thanks for the conversion info. Here is the link to the main page. I had done a search on another medical terminology site and ended up at this site in a very round-about way:

Karen,
Thanks! It is amazing to me how much pain something that small can cause! I was hoping it weighed about 20 lbs. I would be that much closing to my goal weight at Weight Watchers!!

Gee is there a prize for the biggest uterus?
I checked my op report (which you can request by the way) and my uterus was 340gm. They also took out alot of other mystery masses and fibroids etc.
I joked with the nurses that if I didn't leave the hospital 15 pounds lighter I was going to ask for a refund.
Well I was actually down about 12 pounds and have kept a good part of it off.
