enlarged uterus

When I went for my check up yesterday my doctor informed me that my uterus was 4 times larger than it should have been. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this?

Re: enlarged uterus

well, pre-surgery, all the doctors who examined me referred to my uterus as "HUGE" and, although i don't remember a multiplier, when i went to my two-week checkup and got the information from my pathology report from the doctor, he said my uterus was so big because of the fibroid that was had grown in the uterine wall. <shudders> SO glad to have it gone.

Re: enlarged uterus

I have had enlarged uterus few times in the years that I have struggled with irregular bleeding. It was due to uterine infections... no one could tell me how or why I got them just that I had them. They would be treated with antibiotics and it would go down a bit. It was still too large to do ablasion 6 monhts ago but went down by June. I don't remember how many times it was it's normal size.

Re: enlarged uterus

My Surgeon told me that my uterus was "slightly larger" than the norm. I had adenomyosis so I have no idea if that was the cause. I never asked how large it was and I never saw a pathology report.

Re: enlarged uterus

I also had an enlarged uterus. The M.D.said mine was the size of a 3 month pregnancy. It was also prolapsed. The enlargement was due to adenomyosis.

Re: enlarged uterus

My uterus was like a 5-6 month pregnancy with fibroids AND adenomyosis AND a hemorrhaging ovarian cyst. I had no belly button; my uterus and the tumors were pushing hard against my abdomen, my bowel and my bladder. Wheee. I have regained my belly button now and feel SO MUCH better now that all that crap is gone. Yes, I have pain, but I know it's going to go away and that I am now on the winning side of things.

Re: enlarged uterus

My doctor said that my uterus was the size of a 4 month pregnancy due to fibroids. In the last year they had grown fairly quickly and were pushing on my bladder causing lots of pressure and pain. I'm happy to have it gone now. I knew that it was only going to get worse not better as time went by but this was a several year process to finally make the decision to have a TAH.

Re: enlarged uterus

Yes, mine was also 4 times normal size. It was blamed on adenomyosis plus 2 large fibroids.
