Brief Answer: Bloating is not due to uterus. Detailed Answer: Hello, I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, bloating of abdomen is not due to uterus volume. It is usually due to the abdominal fat. You need to do some abdominal exercises to reduce this bloating. Also modify your diet, better to consult a fitness expert and dietician. You can also use a ABDOGRIP abdominal belt for temporary relief. Please ask if you have more questions.
