Enlarge Uterus
I had my yearly vist to my gyno today. He told me my Uterus was a little enlarge. I've never heard of that before. About 15 years ago I did have a Fibroid Tumor that was removed. My doctor told it could grow back, and if so, we'll just remove it again. What other things can cause a Enlarge Uterus? I'm having a ultra sound done next week. Should I be concered? When I had a fibroid tumor, I pretty much knew something was wrong. I bleed for weeks at a time. I'm now 43 and I have a normal periods. I discharge more a week or two before my period, which I never had before. My first two days of my period are more heavyier then they were before. Does age have anything to do with this

A fibroid would be the likeliest cause for the enlarged uterus. This can cause heavy periods.
