A 30-year-old female asked:

When i lie down and press on my lower abdomen, it feels hard. i'm guessing this is my uterus. is it normal to feel your uterus if you aren't pregnant?

Sometimes: If you think you may be pregnant - please check it out with a home test or a visit to your doctor. Yes, one can palpate the uterus during an abdominal exam - particularly if the woman is thin.
