What is arcuate uterus?

Heart shaped

Reproductive_organs-womb
Arcuate uterus is heart-shaped rather than pear-shaped. It's a minor malformation from development when you were an embryo. It usually doesn't cause any problem but your gyn should look for other related issues like endometriosis.

Dr. Miguel A. Cano answered:

What is uterus didelphys?

Double Uterus

Stringio
In a female fetus, the uterus starts out as two small tubes. As the fetus develops, the tubes normally join to create one larger, hollow organ — the uterus. Sometimes, however, the tubes don't join completely. Instead, each one develops into a separate structure. This condition is called double uterus (uterus didelphys). Treatment is needed only if a double uterus causes symptoms or complications.

What leiomyomatous uterus?

It means fibroids

Fibroid
Fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the muscular layer of the uterus. They are hormonally driven and can grow in size and cause problems for many women. They can cause pelvic pain, urinary symptoms, and constipation if a large enough size. They can also cause abnormal bleeding and heavy periods. They can also be found incidentally and cause no symptoms or problems.

Why is my uterus fluttering?

Bowels

Flutter
If not pregnant, the fluttering feeling is from spasms in the muscles lining the bowels. This is similar to a twitch you feel on your skin but it's located in the wall of the bowel.

Dr. Jane Van Dis answered:

how to prevent uterus cancer?

Exercise!

Cancer
Most uterine cancer is estrogen dependent, thus maintaining a healthy weight (BMI of < 25) will decrease risk. Avoiding Diabetes and high blood pressure will help. Birth control pills can also help lower your risk for uterine cancer. Exercise, along with a healthy diet is going to benefit.. Most important though is to see your doctor if you have breakthrough bleeding or heavy periods.
