Background: Uterus is considered as a major reproductive organ in women which is responsible for pregnancy and delivery of the foetus. The dimensions of the uterus can act as the markers for the reproductive health of the women. The dimension of the uterus deviates from the normal dimensions in the presence of any anomalies. Therefore, the uterine dimensions can help in predicting the reproductive health of the women and help in the treatment. Ultrasonography is an overexploited technique due to the key advantages it provides in diagnoses purposes. The uterine dimension can easily be measured by this technique. Aims and Objectives: To measures the uterine dimension using Ultrasonography of women lying in the age group of 15-45 years. Methods- Uterine dimensions of 200 nulliparous and parous women were measured in the study and comparison were made from the normal counterparts. Results: Women lying in 15-25 years of age were having the mean longitudinal length as 6.43±0.24 cm, mean Anteroposterior diameter as 2.96±0.33 cm and mean transverse diameter as 3.77±0.45cm. In age group of 26-35 years, the mean longitudinal length was 7.72±0.630, mean anteroposterior diameter was 3.59±0.42 cm and mean transverse diameter was 4.42±0.52 cm. In age group of 36-45 years the mean longitudinal length was 8.57±0.55, mean anteroposterior diameter was 4.12±0.45cm and mean transverse diameter was 4.93±0.46cm. Conclusion: Our study showed a significant increase in uterine dimensions with Age and Parity. These values are of immense importance for predicting and later on diagnosing any uterine pathology affecting its dimensions.
