I was wondering if anyone had some more information on tilted Uterus. I was doing some TCC research online when I came across information that said it could be tilted forward to pubic bone or backwards towards the anus. I have not been told this by Dr or nurse at my smear test. But my aunt said she has it and my grandmother on my Father’s side had it. My Grandmother had 7 children and my Aunt had one but she felt it caused her some issues with getting pregnant.
The reason I feel mine might be tilted forward is because when on AF at times the blood will pool even if I am upright then come out when I sit on the toilette. It is almost like that action tilts the uterus back and lets out the pooling blood.
Anyways my research found if tilted towards the pubic bone positions like from the back and lying on your belly is best to conceive. Also suggest lying on belly for 15 mins.
If you go up and hold your hips after you risk the sperm pooling in the wrong place. I have done this in the past.
If tilted towards the anus you should stay lying on your back for 15 mins and missionary position is best.
So as I am not sure I may try a bit of both. Any one else come across this of know they have this issue.
I was first told I have a tilted uterus when I was pregnant with DS! Dr. didn't say which way it tilted. He didn't seem concerned about it all and told me it is completely normal and won't affect my fertility. Obviously it didn't for me, only took 3 months to conceive DS #1. Trying for #2 and having a harder time this go around. Been 6 1/2 months, one chemical pregnancy. I think it will happen soon though. If your family members had it and were able to have children you shouldn't worry. If you are TTC for more than a year, then get yourself and OH checked out. It could be many things and not necessarily a tilted uterus.
I just found out I have a tilted or retroverted uterus. The Dr said it has nothing to do with my not conceiving and will not affect it in the future. So i hoped that is true. I also heard its good to lay on your stomach after the deed to give sperm the chance to get in the uterus.
They told me I have a tilted uterus when I had an internal scan. I did some research & found out it usually means more painful periods which is a definite for me!! And I also read sex from behind is better for conceiving but dont know how true this is! xxx
I have a retroverted uterus and to was told it's not something to be concerned about TTC. I was told that since it's tilting backwards my cervix will tilt up towards my pubic bone so sex from behind and laying on my belly would be a good idea.
I also have a retroverted uterus (have been told this by multiple gynos after my annual exam), but have been reassured that it will not affect TTC. I did read that in the past, they used to think it did affect TTC, but they now only blame a tilted uterus in the case of "unexplained fertility." I've also read/been told that if you are tilted back, that doing it from behind and lying on your stomach helps. I also read that using soft cups might help.
Many thanks for all of your responses. That makes me feel much better. This is only my 4th cycle TCC so I am going to try to be positive but give myself a year before I get too worried.
Thank you all so much xx
I also have a tilted uterus and have been told by my gyno that it sholuldn´t cause any problems TTC but I never thought to ask about which way it was tilted (I wasn´t TTC at the time and didn´t think to ask many questions). Whenever I have a smear it takes them ages (like 30 minutes) to manage to get a sample and they ALWAYS have to ask one of their colleagues for assistance. They also make me move my bum closer and further down to the end of the chair/bed thingy until my knees are almost touching my ears which is very embarrassing but makes me think that my uterus is probably tilted towards my pubic bone. What do you think?
When I had my MC and had to have a ultrasound the ultrasound tech asked me if I knew my cervixs was tilted. I told her no and asked if it would cause me to have problems getting pregnant and she said no. I already have 2 boys who I got pregnant with the first month we tried, so I personally do not think that it has anything to do with not getting pregnant.
