Hello and welcome,

I understand your concern.

However we doctors are the ones to take the blame as these are loose terms. It would help to know the exact size of the uterus in each scan for a better opinion.
Usually we never use the term non bulky. The usual term is a normal uterus or bulky uterus or simple mention of the size of uterus and let the treating doctor decide if he feels it is enlarged or normal. If it says non bulky, most likely it is normal.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
