Thanks for the query.

The report is suggesting:
Size of the uterus is bigger than normal.
Endometrial thickness increased. (Normal up to 8 to 9 mm).
Hypertrophied cervix and nabothian cysts suggesting chronic pelvic infection.
Both ovaries are having cysts. Appearing as benign cysts.
The XXXXXXX echoes can be possibly because of hemorrhage into the cyst during ovulation or because of endometriosis.
Free fluid in pouch of XXXXXXX suggests ovulation or sometimes pelvic inflammatory disease.
So if you correlate your clinical features with ultrasound findings the exact cause of the changes can be made out and treatment can be taken accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
