Visuals Are Powerful-This Is The Size Of Your Uterus


“Visuals are POWERFUL! They truly give you a better grasp on a concept.

This is an adult uterus. It grows up to 3x its original size during menstruation. “When your baby reaches full term, your uterus will be bigger than five times its original size with a capacity of 500 times more than before you conceived. It’ll be 15 times heavier on its own without the baby and the placenta. After you give birth, the uterus immediately starts contracting to shrink itself. One week after delivery it’ll weigh about 1.5 pounds (680g) but two weeks after birth it’ll be down to 11 ounces (312g). By six weeks after pregnancy it’ll be back to its pre-pregnancy weight of 2.5 ounces (71g).” Source:

Isn’t that incredible! 😲 Such a small organ that literally populates the world.”

“Edited: This image is so amazing. I am trying to locate the photographer for attribution. Also, learn a bit more about the details of this womb. It is a post menopausal uterus and ovaries removed in a radical hysterectomy. I cannot be sure what exactly was going on with this uterus but please stick around for an update ❤️Update: @docshawarma originally posted this and I believe it to be his image. ☺️”
