strange question...uterus size

Does anyone know what the "normal" size that Uterus is suppposed to be?

I went for my 2 week check up today and she gave me a copy of my pathology report. (has lots of interesting new words and things to learn on it). It gave the size of my uterus and I wondered what was "normal".

strange question...uterus size

My doctor told me a uterus is normally the size of a small pear. (mine was the size of a large cantaloupe, and boy, is it nice not to have to lug that around any more!) I've also heard normal uterus size described as the size of a woman's fist, but then we all have different sized hands, don't we?

uterus size

I heard about the fist size, too...but, I wondered about centimeters, etc.

I am not sure where to look for that type of info!

Thanks for your reply!

strange question...uterus size

I, too heard about the fist sizing, but wondered exactly what measurements we're talking about as mine was "2 1/2 to 3 times" larger than normal. I did a lot of checking on the web and couldn't find anything! I guess we have to think pear or fist (but of course those all vary anyway!)

uterus size

I found a web site that gave this info...

"In a woman who has never had children, the average uterus is about 8 cm long by 5cm wide by 2.5 cm thick; in a woman who has had a child, those measurements are about 9 by 6 by 4 cm"

Hope this helps others who might want some info on this, too!

strange question...uterus size

dear levins,

I read somewhere that a normal uterus weighs around 90 grams. I had fibroids and mine was 754 grams (about the size of a 20 week pregnancy, which is how they generally measure it.) I/ve read posts from women whose were even bigger!

By the way, it bothers me that they speak of these diseased, enlarged uterii in terms of how many weeks pregnant.....seems bizarre...
