Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to ascertain the exact cause for the swelling in uterus that you describe without further evaluation. If your periods have been regular, it would suggest that you might be having regular and periodic ovulation, and if you are sexually active without protection around your ovulation time, pregnancy chances are possible. Pregnancy chances get better if you have regular menstrual cycles (indicative of regular and periodic ovulation). If you have been trying for pregnancy, consider monitoring cervical mucus changes, cervix position, and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation (along with the follicular study if required) and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Do not change positions immediately after ejaculation, put pillows under buttocks to minimize semen spill, and avoid getting up within 30 minutes of ejaculation. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. If you have not been successful in your pregnancy plans within 6 months to 1 year’s time of trying, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Hormonal derangements, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, tubal blocks, cervical or vaginal infections, post-contraceptive ovarian failure/suppression, LPD, etc., should be ruled out for you. For your partner, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced, as well as rule out other factors that can affect sperm morphology and motility (especially rule out acrosomal protein defect if all other parameters are normal). Treatment as indicated (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
