Hi thanks for your question.
The ultra sound report of your wife is normal except that she is having small fibroid in uterus. The size of fibroid is very small and doesn’t need any intervention. It only needs monitoring by ultra sound. If the size of fibroids increases or it interferes with conception (becoming pregnant) in near feature it needs to be removed. The bulky uterus means uterus is slightly increased in size .This happens during pregnancy, since abortion has taken place uterus will come back to normal size after few weeks.
Hope this answers your question.
