A "bulky uterus": usually means that you have adenomyosis or fibroid tumors in the uterus. These conditions frequently require surgical removal of the uterus. However, most women go into menopause and stop bleeding around your age. If you can control symptoms until menopause, you won't need surgery. You should have a D&C or biopsy of the inside of the uterus to rule out cancer.
