51.5yrs, had laparoscopy, cystoscopy and hysteroscopy w/d&c. have been using alesse since May. Dr. said uterus is enlarged. Did alesse cause this?

Here are some ...: Alesse is primarily a contraceptive pill with estrogen & progestin, which should not make uterus bigger except "recycling" the lining of uterus like a normal menstrual cycle. At your age, some uterine fibroid formation may more likely contribute to uterine enlargement. Of course, ask you gyn-doc timely for detail. ...Read more

Difficult to say: You need to be evaluated by your physician. You may possibly have something called adenomyosis. This is where bits and pieces of the uterine lining gets trapped in the muscle of the uterine wall and displays an enlarged uterus with tenderness. ...Read more

My uterus is enlarged and I have fibroids that are Large also I'm have pain and my periods are longer I'll seen my physician and he recommend an hyste?

Its a good option: Large fibroids are a common cause of heavy painful bleeding. A hysterectomy removes the fibroids with the uterus and takes away the problem. Its a good option. At age 39, the ovaries are almost always left in place so that you don't need to be on hormone replacement. Other options would be uterine artery embolization, magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound and endometrial ablation. ...Read more

My breasts have grown& extremely sore and my uterus has enlarged but it's been 2months since my 1st Depo-Provera shot expired, could I pregnant?

My breasts have grown& extremely sore and my uterus has enlarged but it's been 2months since my 1st Depo-Provera shot expired, could I pregnant?

May be hard to tell: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Im 9 weeks but my uterus dosnt feel enlarged, is that ok or is something wrong?

Probably fine: It would be very unusual for you to be able to feel your uterus yet and the sensitivity of a pelvic exam depends on many things. If your doctor is concerned, he or she will order an ultrasound to be sure. If this hasn't been done everything is probably fine. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a uterus that is enlarged 20 CM can I get preg?

I have a uterus that is enlarged 20 CM can I get preg?

Maybe not: If there are multiple fibroid tumors causing your uterus to be "enlarged 20 cm" and if some of these fibroids are submucosal, extend inside your endometrium, distort your uterine cavity or interfere with its blood supply...your chances of "getting pregnant" and/or carrying a pregnancy to term are not very good. Miracles can happen for women with large fibroids but they are rare. ...Read more

Would a 2cm fibroid cause uterus to be enlarged ?

Would a 2cm fibroid cause uterus to be enlarged ?

Minimal: A 2 centimeter cyst has a volume less than 5 cubic centimeters. When compared to the average uterine volume of about 60 to 80 cubic centimeters, a 2 centimeter fibroid would not result in a significant increase in the size of the uterus. However, over time a fibroid can result in a dramatic change in the size of a uterus due to its continual growth. ...Read more

Uterus: enlarged and measured about  100 & 56mm. Multiple hyperechoic masses seen in all over the uterus.  Biggeronemeasuringabout40 &35mm  posterior ?

Probably Fibroids: Symptoms often include pelvic fullness and/or pressure, or heavy menstrual periods. Often, though, women with fibroids have no symptoms at all. If minor symptoms, i would recommend reevaluation in 4-6 months, to see if they are growing in size. If stable, leave them alone. If growing, consider removal via hysterectomy. If you experience any bleeding, given your age, you should seek medical advice. ...Read more
