bulky ovary is not medically descriptive.It is a normal phenomena during peri ovulatory period due to retention of fluid and functional cysts ,it may be multiple.It is of no clinical importance at all.ocassionally,bulky ovary is associated with PCOD due to increased mass of tissue under improper hormonal influence.If you are clinically ok ,having no other symptoms,don't bother for such report.
