"Smaller uterus" ?: Unless you were recently pregnant ( a year or so ago ? ) or have stopped having regular periods, the size of the uterus in the non-pregnant state is fairly constant at age 31. This may simply be a situation of the ultrasound measurement being incorrect.

Different Technique: Often changes in measured sizes of organs just has to do with the technique in which the test was performed. For example you could get an ultrasound 10 times in a row but 10 different or even the same technician and come up with different measurements. However typically the uterus will shrink during menopause
