hi,
Thanks for the query.

according to your scan findings,
-uterus is more than normal in size,

-myometrium heterogeneous means there is some abnormality in myometrium like,
adenomyosis- in which endometrial tissue grows into myometrium, so it causes heterogeneous area in scan and also causes enlargement of uterus,
fibroids- small intramural fibroids sometimes can appear as heterogeneous areas in myometrium and multiple small fibroids can lead to enlarged size of the uterus, but usually these can be recognized as mass unless very small in size,

-endometrial thickness is normal, according to 6mm it should be around few days before menstruation,

-nabothian cysts of cervix - indicating chronic pelvic infection,

-left ovary non visualization - indicates possibly removal of part or entire ovary previously or may be situated behind some structure so not visualized in scan,

-right ovary- normal in size.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

I had unprotected sex on june 9th. and again on june 12th with the same guy. We are both clear of std's, but I have been pregnant before with twins and miscarried. When I was supposed to get my period (june 19th) there was some spotting and some pink discharge, as well as some burning during urination. I have had a horrible migraine for 3 days now, and I was nauseous all day today when I was trying to bake, but I also just had surgery on my jaw, and thought that could be the trigger of my nauseousness. Do you think I am pregnant?

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.
