Your gynecologist ca:
What did your gynecologist do for you and advice you to do further, if anything? .
I am not worried about your Uterus as long as you do not have abnormal bleeding. Chronic cervicitis should be tested with PAP test and if possible, check for HPV 16 infection. Good luck ...Read more

I am diagnosed with a Fibroid of size 13*9mm in the posterior myometrium in Ultrasound. Is there any cure for it??? Can I conceive a baby? Please help
Yes you can: Most uterine fibroids are benign muscle growths which can be anterior, posterior, lateral, inside the wall of your uterus, on its inner or its outer surface, . ..and of varying sizes... If yours, which is fairly small, is not on the inside uterine lining, if it remains unchanged and you are healthy +asymptomatic your chances of getting pregnant and carrying your pregnancy to term are excellent ...Read more
My uterus contains a 6cm fibroid in the posterior myometrium. Does this mean it is inside the uterus - or in the wall of the uterus?
Not enough info. ..: The myometrium is the muscular wall of the uterus so most or all of the fibroid is in the wall. Posterior means the back wall of your uterus as opposed to the front. A fibroid in the myometrium may be completely within the wall (intramural) or project into the inside cavity of the uterus (submucosal) or it may be just under the outer covering of the uterus (subserosal). Ultrasound or MRI can tell. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with 3 fibroids. On the lateral myometrium 44mm, on the uterine fundus 43mm and posterior myometrium 26mm. Will I be able to concieve?
Reassurance: Fibroids (leiomyomata) are very common in women in your age group. Current medical technology is unable to predict anyone's chances of conception. Fiborids can be associated with decreased fertility and increased complications of pregnancy, but the majority of women with fibroids will conceive successfully and have uncomplicated pregnancies. Good luck. ...Read more
What does "Vague area of heterogeneity in the posterior uterine myometrium without a discrete fibroid or mass." Mean & what could it be?
Heterogeneous: Heterogeneous myometrium means that the texture of the myometrium is not the same across the length of it. It is probably OK if no discrete lesion is seen. If there are symptoms that cannot be explained by it, it may be reasonable to have a follow up ultrasound in 3 months to see if there has been a change in the appearance. ...Read more
Ultrasound report?: I am assuming (which can be dangerous), that this was an ultrasound report. If so, the "thickened" smooth muscle of the uterus (adenomyosis) is evident which is more common in women who have had children. The endometrium, or lining of the uterus, is shown to be in the middle of the uterus where it is supposed to be located. ...Read more
What does subtle heterogeneity and increased thickness of anterior fundal myometrium mean please?
Description: It sounds like you are trying to interpret an ultrasound. This is a description of what the uterus looks like. It needs to be taken in conjunction with the clinical picture. Are you mid cycle, pregnant or just lost a pregnancy, looking for a tumor? It just means that there are different components of material in the uterus like old and new blood in the tissue being the most common. ...Read more
I had a transvag us done and they found heterogeneous myometrium. Also mild amount of fluid. Everything else looked normal. Is something wrong?
3 previous c sections pregnant again scan at 6 week showed myometrium layer to be 19mm is this to thin?
No: The thickness is not an issue at this time. Given your history of multiple c-sections, there will be surveillance to follow the thickness of the uterine wall in the area of the prior scars and to evaluate the placental implantation site to make sure there is no evidence that the placenta is penetrating the uterine wall. ...Read more
3 previous c sections pregnant again scan at 6 week showed lower myometrium layer to be 19mm is this to thin?
No, That is not: A typical measurement to take and I am unsure of any data related to outcomes in measuring this, . That being sain it's almost 2 cm which is almost an inch thick. You are likely not going to see thinning in this area until later, as the uterus stretches. I am not familiar with monitoring thickness of this ares, if it gets thin, which it will, what is done differently? Nothing. Do not worry. ...Read more
Myometrium has been peirced by mirena (levonorgestrel) coil. Is it better just to leave it there or remove it?
Endometrium ill-defined at fundus (9mm). Myometrium appears heterogeneous throughout suggestive of diffuse fibrotic changes. What does it mean?
Change: It means that you have some non-cancer fibrous change in the muscle coat of the uterus ...Read more
Myometrium shows a small anterior body intramural myoma measuring 5.8 mm. Please explain that to me. That's y result of my endovaginal ultrasound?
Fibroid: A myoma is also called a fibroid tumor. They're very common, especially during the 30's and 40's. Usually they require no treatment unless they cause problems, such as abnormal bleeding. A small one like yours in the wall of the uterus (intramural) is unlikely to cause any problem. ...Read more
Had IUD removed last week after partial expulsion, with one arm embedded in myometrium. Now with enlarged inguinal LN for 2 wks. Does LN need work up?
There is 28x19x15mm hypoechoic lesion in the anterior myometrium in lower uterine segment. Do I need to be concerned? Is it affecting my fertility?
Ask the GYN MD....: Ask the GYN MD who ordered the test that has shown the above abnormality. It is difficult to make a determination about a "concern" without the proper context of history, exam and reason for testing. ...Read more

TVS done 7thday of Period. Myometrium show heterogeneous echoes with multiple small bright spots. Color Dopler show increased vascularity in myometrium?
The uterus measure is 105x46x72mm, considered at least midly bulky. Myometrium coarsened. There were several discrete zones of echotextural distortion?
Fibroids/adenomyosis: The word choices are often different but my best interpretation of your Pericoli ultrasound suggests heterogeneous changes that are often associated with small fibroids and possibly adenomyosis (endometriosis in the uterine muscle) which can change the architecture of the uterine muscle. Your uterus is a bit large or bulky as well. ...Read more
I've heard of doctors using heparin for severe bicornuate uteri to increase blood flow to the myometrium. Is there any scientific base in this?
No: I'm not aware of any science that would support that. ...Read more
I am 27 week pregnant and at my 21-week scan, the scan saw that there is a rather vascular segment of myometrium at the cervix and was requested to do another scan at 32 weeks. I would like to ask about what the implications are? Anything to worry?
Needs monitoring: Possibly developing an arteriovenous malformation in the uterus. This needs careful watching as may alter the strategy for delivery (implications re bleeding risks). Hence the recommended follow up scans. Would advise to discuss the specifics of followup strategy with an obstetrician so there is a plan in place ...Read more
A pelvic ultrasound I had says heterogeneous echotexture of the myometrium and 1 ovey is 12.6cc and other is 2.8cc. Is this normal?
Follow up visit: After you have a radiologic procedure it is important to schedule follow up visit with the doctor who ordered it who can interpret the result in the context of your clinical situation. The ovarian volumes you mention are normal the myometrial description may refer to adenomyosis or a number of of things. ...Read more
