Uterus: Really, if you are unsure, you should ask your gynecologist. Obviously there was some reason that imaging was ordered. Having said that, this could be a picture of a benign condition called adenomyosis, which is a condition of the uterus that can cause heavy periods, pelvic pain and can cause this picture on ultrasound. But I would really need to see the picture.

Heterogeneous uterus: you do not have any discrete uterine fibroids which are benign growths of the muscle wall of the uterus but may have a condition called adenomyosis. This is when the lining of the uterus migrates into the muscle wall and can cause a soggy, boggy uterus that can cramp and bleed. At any rate, your report has nothing worrisome.

Mesh in Uterus?: It's pretty rare to see mesh in the uterus. Most meshes are used for incontinence of urine, ie. Slings, or in pelvic reconstruction. Television ads describe problems with meshes as seen from an attorneys perspective. I would encourage you to look at websites sponsored by the american urogynecologic society......www.augs.org.

Heat + cramps: The heat from the bottom of the laptop produces uterine contractions. Men also need to be cautious about laptop heat as it can reduce sperm production and counts. Place an object over your lap such as a pillow or newspaper to absorb the heat or place the laptop on a desk or table when in use.
