Tilted Cervix


Hi, went for a smear test the other day (which this time hurt!!), the nurse said i had a tilted cervix, not really sure what this means and if that affects TTC, i know it cant really as i already have 1 ds but wondered if that means any particular positions are better for TTC. Anyone any ideas??
Thanks

I have this too and like you, was told by my GP at a regular PAP smear appointment. I also went for a pelvic ultra sound as I was having some pain (which turned out to be nothing) but I asked the doctor there about it too. I found out that it is a fairly common condition affecting around 20% of women. I was also told that in some cases it can be a sign of an underlying problem like endometriosis but unless you have other symptoms of this it is unlikely and as you already have children I wouldn't worry about that too much.

I have read that if you have a tilted cervix it is better to lie on your tummy after BDing, I am never sure how accrate this is so I tend to alternate it, lying on my tummy fora bit then rolling onto my back! I have also read on this board that the whole lying still after BD thing doesn't work anyway as the sperm only take 30 seconds to get up there so who knows!

I have a tilted cervix too and i also heard something about laying on your tummy after sex although i haven't tried this yet, i have 2 sons so it can't cause too much of a problem when ttc, good luck x

Hey,

I have a retroverted uterus... Is that the same thing? I've been told its very common and shouldn't affect ttc. Hadn't heard the lie on tummy thing, but will try that next time!

I think retroverted uterus is different to tilted cervix. Everyone's uterus is tilted either slightly forwards or slightly backwards; it then straightens as a baby grows inside it.

I found out at my smear in February that I have a tilted cervix, and it was agony to have the smear because of this. However, when I went to the GP who specialises in sexual health to have my coil removed, she didn't cause any pain at all because she is more expert.

I have done a lot of research since being told about this, and also asked the nurse at my smear. Apparently, the best sex for baby-making when you have a tilted cervix, is doggy style! Also, yes, lying on your tummy can help. She said that carrying and giving birth to children can be more painful/problematic but that in most cases it's fine. It is also very common.

Hi girls, I was told i had a backwards tilting uterus at a scan to confirm a miscarriage last friday. Initially i was worried about it but the sonographer told me that it's common, doesn't cause any issues with ttc and likened it to some people having brown eyes while others have blue ones! So really not an issue!!!

Some times it can cause discomfort while having sex in certain positions, and very rarely could be a sign of endometreosis (sp!) but that would have other signals too!

Good luck to you all xxx
