Thanks for writing in.
A bulky uterus means little enlarged uterus. The causes could include:

1) Adenomyosis: It is a condition where endometrial stroma is present in the uterine muscle leading to enlargement of uterus.
2) Fibroid uterus: Presence of fibroids in the uterus
3) Physiological: Some women normally have bulky uterus on ultrasound.
However, the present pain you are describing will not be because of bulky uterus. Please consult a gynaecologist for evaluating the ovaries for endometriosis or for presence of cysts. A gynaecologist will be able to differentiate the cause after examining you and seeing scan report or might be repeating another scan to check ovaries.
Also, please get urine examination done. Sometimes, simple UTI) also presents like this.
Let me reassure you that a bulky uterus per se does not carry any significance and is not associated with any problems in future.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. I will be available for any further queries you have.

Wish you a healthy life
