your uterus (or womb as it is commonly called) is a muscular organ. If it is swollen there is inflammation of the muscle tissue, which may be caused by infection, causing swelling. There could also be fibroid or benign cyst tissue adding to the size of the uterus. You are at the right age for Menopause. A simple blood test to determine Hormone levels will diagnose that. Your doctor should be able to tell you if any of this applies to you.
