1. Myometrium is the wall of uterus. Generally it is expected to be uniform or homogeneous but in your case it is mentioned as heterogeneous or non uniform. There is also mention of an 8 mm mass in posterior wall of uterus. In simple words there is gland tissue in the uterus wall which is normally devoid of such tissue with the doubtful presence of a small (really small 8 mm) lump beside it.
2. Minimal free fluid in cul de sac - pelvi inflammatory disease: There is some fluid in the space behind your uterus. While this copuld also be normal (upto 5ml), if patient is clinically symptomatic for pelvic infetion and quantity is more, a diagnosis in favour of local infeaction around the uterus is made.
