Hello- I am a 45 year old woman. I went for my annual check up and my Gyno told me my uterus felt big. She told me to do a sonogram.. The sonogram said my endo was 12mm and I had a 1.8 cm dominant Follicle in my right ovary. She told me to come back for another sonogram on the 6th or 7th day of my next cycle.I think I may be ovulating. I am very nervous about what us going on.. Can you help at all?

Brief Answer:
Findings need reevaluation in next cycle

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic.
The uterus will be slightly bulky in the second half of the menstrual cycle.
Similarly 12 mm endometrial thickness is also borderline.
The 18 mm size structure in your right ovary can be the ovarian follicle.
Your gynecologist want to repeat USG on the seventh day of coming cycle to make sure of the normal follicle maturation. if your menstrual cycle is otherwise normal and regular and there is no excessive bleeding.
Then these findings can be considered within normal limits in the upper range. The ultrasound for the next cycle will ensure that you are not having any abnormal pathology, which I hope is the case.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.
