welcome to health care magic,
there are so many causes depending on whether you have menstrual problem or can be a benign growthlike fibroid or due to some other should consult a gynaec for it and get yourself properly examined.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
The finding could mean many things. Are you losing weight and appetite. Bulky non-gravid means uterus has some thickening and swelling and is turned backwards instead of forwards due to fibroid (relatively not harmful and can be removed or left alone), endometriosis and adenomyosis which require treatment. Mostly the Doctor will schedule a D&C procedure to view how your endometrium looks and any signs of the above latter diseases. After this only anything can be commented on fertility. Consult your Gynaecologist on this and get appropriate advice and treatment.
