uterus size

I know I've seen this somewhere but does anyone know the typical dimension and weight of the uterus and size of ovaries?

I'm reviewing my surgical summary and pathology report.

Thanks!
Pat

I'm not sure about the ovaries, but the uterus is about the size of your fist clenched, I think about 100grams.

I'd like to know too. My Dr. said that my uterus weighed 240 grams and was 3 times normal size. I don't have any of my surgery reports yet. But I was interested in the same thing. Thanks in advance!

Not sure about the weight, but it is about the size of a pear. Basically, the same shape, too.

uterus size

I read on a medical board that the uterus, normally, is about three inches. Mine was "twice the normal size", but I don't know what size that is in gestational weeks. You know how they say, "uterus the size of an (x) week pregnancy"?
Anyway, It's gone NOW!!
