I have a tilted uterus.  It's tilted forward, so it's more "shallow" in my body.  I carried big with my daughter and showed early on in my pregnancy.  I've had regular periods (every 28 days) since I was 11.  It won't affect you getting an IUD.  It just means that your uterus is leaning more towards one side.

I have it too, it's genetic. Your uterus corrects itself while pregnant. It's actually extremely common. It shouldn't have any effect on Birth Control. The only "problems" that I have, is that because it's tilted, if I get cramps they're in my back instead of my stomach. No biggie.

mine is tilted back too, which actually made childbirth easier for me. my doctor did not see any issue with me getting an IUD. so far as i know it doesn't cause any problems.

 MIne has been tilted for YEARS and I never had any problems with it. I don't know if there are any problems. If so I never heard of any. My time of the month is extremely painful but, I don't think that is the reason.

My uterus is tilted backwards also and all that it seemed to affect is it took longer for me to show when I was pregnant. Haven't heard about any negatives from them either.

My Gyno told me I have a tilted uterus when I was 17. She said not to worry it isn't uncommon. She said it MAY be difficult to get pregnant. ? Anyone ever hear of this? Anyway I have never had any problems.

I have one. Not sure about the IUD thing. Just a word of advice; if you ever have a gyn. exam by a doctor that doesn't know about it, please make them aware beforehand. All I have to say is OUCH if they don't know how it's tilted!

Mine is tilted pretty far back, and I had 4 kids in 5 1/2 years. So...............no fertility problems here,lol

My mid-wife told me that back in the day it was thought a woman with a tilted Uterus couldn't conceive. Obviously it's not true because I get pregnant at the drop of a hat!

i am not sure if that is my problem or not but after my first was born I noticed that certain positions would hurt during sex and I mentioned it to my doctor and she said it is most likely because my uterus shifted while I was pregnant and the could be why certain positions hurt, but other than that I have no other issues...
