At it's most simple explanation it means it's a bit bigger than it should be in a non pregnant state. Usually caused by a condition called adenomyosis This is part of an article the link to which I will put below. Hope it helps. The condition is typically found in women between the ages of 35 and 50. Patients with adenomyosis can have painful and/or profuse menses (dysmenorrhea and menorrhagia, respectively). Cyclic, cramping uterine pain beginning later in reproductive life (generally after age 35) and often associated with prolonged and heavy menses is the classic presentation. On pelvic examination there may be uterine enlargement from about 6-10 weeks pregnancy size.

Bulky uterus
Hi, I was told the same thing after ultrasounds for irregular bleeding and pain, I was still not told what it was just that i had a bulky uterus..my doctor said i could have a uterine scraping if i wanted to but she didn't seem to want to take it any further, i don't know if i should see another doctor or if i am being paranoid, I have been researching and found out that not enough progesterone can cause the lining of the uterus to not come away properly and starts to thicken??? dont know if this is the answer but its a start.

Hello, I am 33 years old and last week under went a laparoscopy, D&C, Thermal Ablation, as well as multiple cysts removed from both ovaries. I was also told that I too had a bulky uterus. My doctor explained to me that the "Bulky" issue was that after my last child was born, my uterus didn''t shrink back to its normal size therefore it was almost tricked into thinking I was still pregnant of sorts. I had regular periods, except regular for me was every 10 days, and I would bleed 14-20 days heavy. I could feel the cysts burst, and was hospitialized at one point due to the pain and heavy bleeding. I was called back to the doctor yesterday, worried because my post op appt isn''t until April 7th. I was told yesterday that I am in state 0 of vaginal cancer. The abnormal cells that I usually have, had manifested into more. It is not in my blood stream yet, it is only in a centralized location and they will go in again on Tuesday (2 weeks to the day of the previous surgery) and do what they call a partial vaginectomy. I have been told that 9 out of 10 women who have this done never have to have radiation therapy, and they have no problems ever after the cancer is cut out. They use a laser to remove a portion of the lining in your vagina and then you are good to go. In the future I will have to have my uterus removed, I have a hystory of abnormal paps and it could cause this to reacure. But had it not been for my doctor demanding that I have the scrapping, called a Copaloscopy, they would have never found this...I would have it done...its just a little more painful then a pap is, but takes about 3 minutes to do, you can grit your teeth and then its over. Do it...It can save your life, and save you from having to go through more than just a simple removal of a portion of your lining, but it go into full blown cancer in your lymphs and worse. Take the time and tell them what you want done...only you know your body, and why take chances!

"Bulky Uterus"
Before everyone panics, I just want to say that there are so many things it can mean! I just got results from an ultrasound yesterday saying I also had a Bulky uterus. In my case, my doctor believes I have what is called adenomyosis. Google it. Its interesting and fits in with every symptom i have. I too am 33 years old with 3 children. I have been having awful periods and other pains in that region for along time but it got much worse after having each of my children. Dont get yourselves too worried, alot of times its not serious. But you most definately should get another opinion and tests to clear up your minds and find out the cause and what to do next! All the best to you Lois! I hope that all goes well for you!

I am 41 almost 42, I've skipped my last two periods and went to my gyno for advice. After the pelvic she informed my my uterus was "bulky" and so she is running 6 blood tests to find some answers I HOPE. Thank God, and I mean that with all sincerity, the prenancy test was negative. Will have an ultrasound Monday. My life is very stressful, so maybe that's it, but because of my stress and depression, suffered for years, I'm tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Jessica
