As per your question, you underwent a transvaginal scan with the intention to plan a third pregnancy at 42 years of age.

Going by your report,
1. Uterus anteverted and measurements 49.75 x 45.45 x 47.26mm with that of endometrial stripe 6.44 mm are normal.
2. Subcentimeter anechoic cyst within cervical myometrium is acceptable as normal.
3. Ovaries showing cysts measuring 11.64 x 9.21 x 10.44mm and 13.00 x 10.89 x 13.09mm could be follicular cysts and are not limiting factors for pregnancy.

However, since you are 42 years of age, I would suggest you take proper guidance and follow up from a gynaecologist regarding conceiving and therafter. You may be aware that with the increasing maternal age, the chances of conceiving decline but it it different in every woman.
Best wishes
