Does Your Uterus Enlarge When You Have Your Period

I went to the dr. yesterday for my yearly exam and I told him that my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant since the end of Dec 2004 (only a month ago). After he examined me, he said that he noticed that my uterus was slightly enlarged. He said that I may be pregnant or it just may be a sign that my period is about to come. Just this week, I have had the normal pregnancy symptoms...very tender br___ts and nausea but no throwing up yet. I had my last period on Jan 10th..I'm thinking maybe I was pregnant at the end of Dec. but still had 1 more period. Any advice out there? Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi Jen.....I think I may be preg too!!! I'm thinking I got preg the 1st week of Jan. which was around my period time. Well have few signs of pregnancy, even now. But I got my period this past Sunday on the 30th of Jan. It wasn't a normal period to me, so still not sure!!!! But I still feel very preg!!!! Maybe we can talk about this together, help each other out. If for nothing else.....we know we're not alone!!!!

Hi Jessica. I know that your uterus enlarges if you're pregnant but does it also before your period is about to begin?

I guess I'm just anxious to find out if I could be pregnant. When the dr. told me that he noticed that my uterus was slightly enlarged, I asked him if that was a sure sign tha I'm pregnant and he said it very well could be. But he also said that it could mean that my period may be coming too.....

Possiblity....Have they done a blood test on you yet? Possibilty could be fibroids,cysts, not to scare you but these problems can also enlarge your uterus slightly almost to the point where you look like your 4 mos peg! or even smaller. Continue seeing your doctor!

:) I wanted to add that I too have pregnancy symptoms and went to the doctor becaue of them. My doctor did a pelvic on my and found that my uterus was enlarged as well. I have had a few "periods" (not normal ones) since I thought I had gotten pregnant, so I'm not sure. I have an ultrasound scheduled to see what the cause of my enlarged uterus could be. My urine pregnancy tests have been coming back negative, but once the doctor did the pelvic on me and found my enlarged uterus, he wanted me to have an ultrasound just to make sure. I agree with Mandy -- keep seeing the doctor just to make sure why it's enlarged. Good luck!
