What causes a uterus to feel hard? My doctor said mine was

What causes a uterus to feel hard? My doctor said mine was and I didn't even think to ask.
I do not go back for two weeks and curiosity is killing me.
Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

In general, about the only thing that makes a uterus feel harder than normal is either a) a contraction or b) a tumor... NOW, before you get freaked out, an exam to feel the uterus is EXTREMELY subjective, so I don't know how much I would take away from someone saying something feels 'hard.'. Now if that feeling is combined with a uterus that feels to be 'stuck in place', that is a bit more worrisome... but overall, odds are very high that your 'hard' uterus is simply the way your uterus normally feels and is normal for YOU.
