Enlarged uterus: One fourth of women have a retroverted uterus. This is a normal variation. The average uterus, measures 3 to 4 inches by 2.5 inches. Yours in larger than this. Causes for enlarged uterus include fibroids (not seen on your study) adenomyosis (thickening of the uterine wall- yours is normal at 6mm) and Cancer (make sure they do a pap smear) Otherwise, enlarged uterus can be a benign finding.
