Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

Do not worry about your report. It is completely normal. I shall explain the terms that you do not comply.

-Non-gravid uterus: is a uterus which does not contain a fetus, or is not pregnant
-Retroverted uterus: is a uterus which is slightly tilted towards the back (bowels) instead of being tilted in front (anteverted), towards the belly. Although an anteverted uterus is more common. A retroverted uterus cannot cause any problems with a woman's fertility and does not complicate or prevent pregnancy either. The only problem experienced by woman with a retroverted uterus is occasional pain during sexual intercourse, and nothing else
-Homogenous myometrial echotexture: indicates that there is no abnormality present

Thus, everything is normal and fine. Do not worry.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.

hi there, according to the ultrasound report the dimentions of the uterus is normal, the endometrial cavity is normal, no cysts are found.The uterus has two normal anatomical positions, anteverted and retroverted, anteverted means that it is bending forwards and retroverted means that it is bending backwards. There is no harm in it being in either of these positions and 1 in 3 to 1 in 5 women has a retroverted uterus. In most cases, a retroverted uterus is genetic and is perfectly normal. Stop worrying about it until and unless you are having any problem because of it. Take care.
