you didn't mention on which day of your menstrual cycle you underwent scan as depending on that some findings will change,
-uterus ante verted- normal,
-size- slightly larger
-rounded hypoechoic soft tissue: possibly fibroid with size 2.5x2.4cm,
located in ant wall of uterus,
-rounded isoechoic area: possibly part of adenomyosis,
-endometrial thickness: 7.3 mm, normal if you were nearer to periods at the time of scan,
with this results it is appearing that the cause for your heavy bleeding is fibroid and possibly adenomyosis,
you discuss with your doctor these possibilities and take treatment accordingly.
take care.
