Tilted Uterus?

My doc had to do an ultrasound the other day and no I am not prego but while he was doing it he said wow your uterus is tilted! I freaked out! He said it abnormal but didnt explain much. This is not the doc I used when I was prego with Isaiah and no one told me this before I delivered so Idk if it was like this before or if it happened during delivery. Have you heard of this?

  • I have the same thing; I've had two kids and as far as I know, it's nothing. I could be wrong though!

  • I was under the impression it was fairly common especially after you've had kids, but if you haven't it shouldn't bother anything really.. but maybe I am wrong.

  • I have one and didn't know until I was miscarrying my 4th pregnancy. I'd had 2 babies by then, so it's really not a huge deal. My uterus tilts backward, I think it can make it a bit harder to get pregnant, but once pregnant it will correct as your pregnancy progresses and your baby and uterus grows.

  • I've had a tipped uterus for over 20 years, since the birth of my 2nd child. It's not affected my reproductive activities in any way. Canadianmom is correct, it will right itself as a pregnancy progresses.

  • I've been told that by GYNOs all my life. There is nothing wrong, it is just the way your body is built.
