Dr. Tracy A. Berg answered:

I have an enlarged uterus and ovary and a hiatal hernia, also top of my stomach has thickened. What does this all mean?

Depends

Abdomen
If you had a CT scan of your abdomen and pelvis and the results included the above, they may be incidental findings, unless you have symptoms. A uterus > 13cm, an ovary >3cm should be evaluated. It does happen with ER visits and imaging that you get a secondary benefit by knowing something is amiss before you have symptoms. Visit with your regular doc.

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 ...

Open-uri20121111-14663-drtjs5
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

Does getting your period four days after taking EC mean that it worked or is there still a chance of pregnancy even while the uterus wall is shedding?

Normal effect

Pregnancy
Bleeding irregularities are expected after taking emergency contraception. It works by disrupting the menstrual cycle and ovulation. You should always take a pregnancy test two weeks after to make sure it worked.

What does thickening of outside of the uterus lining mean?

Lining of uterus

Open-uri20131129-31761-13e2fhz
When the lining of your uterus is thick it means that either you are in the last phase of your menstrual cycle or also it can be due to pregnancy. However, medical conditions of the uterus can also resemble a thick endometrium, like endometrial hyperplasia (pre -malginancy) endometrial polyps, or uterine fibroids

Mostly out of curiosity, but I understand period pains are due to the contracting of the uterus wall, yes?

Apprx. 4 weeks and i Went for vaginal ultrasound yesterday but they didn't see anything other than thickened uterine wall what could this mean?

Probably normal

Uterus
4 weeks is usually not quite far enough along to see anything with ultrasound, even with the vaginal transducer. If there is an intrauterine pregnancy, the first thing to show up will be a gestational sac, which usually becomes visible by 4.5 - 5 weeks. Be patient and don't worry at this point.
