DH and I did some research on the subject a while ago because a friend of ours apparently has an inverted uterus and was having trouble conceiving … and according to Dr. Google, we found that there is little to no relation between inverted uterus and fertility problems! Our poor friend is just having other unrelated issues, apparently. So … that’s Dr. Google’s take on the subject, at least. Inverted uterus is just when your uterus tilts towards the back and rests against your rectum instead of tilting towards the front and smushing your bladder.

I think it’s estimated that between 1 in 3 and 1 in 5 women have a tilted uterus. My mom has one and she got pregnant three times with zero problems.

Iarebridezilla is right. A tilted uterus is the same this as a inverted uterus and they are both layman’s terms for a retroverted uterus.

The normal position is tilted forward over the bladder, a retroverted uterus is tilted posteriorly.

All current studies indicate that the position of the uterus does not have any barring on fertility and your friend must have another issue that is contributing to her infertility.

I hope this helps.

@MrsPaperFlowers:  right?? DH and I were like “so instead of having to pee all the time you have to poop all the time? Or you can’t poop at all??” and then we felt bad because it’s totally our friend that we were picturing not able to poop because her baby was dancing on her intestines 🙁  I’m sure it’s not a big deal though, as many women have this!

I’ve also been told by my Gyno that I have an tilted uterous- when I asked about how that relates to pregnancies she said it didn’t really matter unless there are other complications of some sort…

My gyno told me that I have a retroverted uterus, and to completely ignore any person who tells me that I will have trouble concieving because of it. Even though she assured me that I’d have no problems and not to worry about it, I worried. Mind you, I was 18 at the time, with absolutely no interest in having children anytime soon, and nearly 5 years later, I still feel the same way. However, I went home and did a ton of research, and everything I found agreed that fertility issues and the position of the uterus are purely coincidental. 

I’m not worried about it, and I hope you won’t be either. Honestly, I’m more concerned about the seemingly hundreds of other reasons for fertility issues.
