I have a tilted uterus!  It’s unconfortable when we have sex in the doggie position but my ob-gyn said that usually after giving birth, it resets itself in the right position.  She told me anything I’ve heard about it being harder to concieve etc is a myth!

I’ve been told the same.  I’ve never had any problem.  No problem conceiving or giving birth.  I did get pregnant with an IUD though.

@Juliepants: I have no idea but I’m just curious, how did you find out? Maybe I have one and don’t know about it.

I was told I have a tilted uterus. All my pregnancies have been unplanned. 4 healthy babies brought to full term. 1 miscarriage due to birth control. 1 miscarriage due to over exerting myself very early in pregnancy before I knew I was. It does make it a huge hassle to insert/extract IUDs. One was enough for me! Ow. I also have to be careful if I’m on top and want to sit straight up.

I just found out I have a tilted uterus when I went for my 6 week ultrasound last week  – had absolutely no idea I had a tilted uterus before that.   It didn’t affect our ability to get pregnant at all as it happened the first time we tried and so far, it hasn’t caused any complications with pregnancy, nor is it expected to.

The only thing it sort of makes difficult is doing the early pregnancy ultrasound.  Because the uterus is further back, it’s harder for the technician to get an accurate view of the baby from the transabdominal u/s.   They didn’t have to do an internal but I think their measurements were a couple of days off because they couldn’t quite get the crown to rump length and were estimating.  Not a big deal though.  By the end of the first trimester the uterus moves up and under your belly button anyway,

My book says you won’t notice increased urinary frequency when pregnant (and least not 1st tri) and you have trouble seeing the fetus with an abdominal ultrasound.

I have one, but I think it’s only slightly tilted backwards.  No OBGYN ever told me this until I had a pelvic exam at 9 weeks pregnant!  She assured me it is just a normal anatomical variation (like being left handed, for example).  The only thing is that during pregnancy the baby “hides” more meaning she couldn’t find the heartbeat on the doppler at 9 weeks (though, that’s still early anyways). I have had 2 ultrasounds – one at 6.5 weeks (abdominal, found the baby fine) and at 10.5 weeks (vaginal, done this way to see more detail).  We conceived on month 3 for both of my pregnancies (the first ended in miscarriage).  My OB told me that having a tilted uterus didn’t have anything to do with the miscarriage.

I pee frequently anyhow (and in pregnancy it has been insane) but I’m not sure if the tilted uterus causes that for me.

I found out my uterus is tipped backwards when I was 6 weeks pregnant and had a pelvic exam.  I’ve never had any discomfort from it and it hasnt affected any of my ultrasounds or heartbeat checks so far. It also didnt have any impact on our ability to conceive since we got pregnant without really trying.

I too have a tilted uterus… I wouldn’t have known had I not gotten pregnant. With my Dirty Delete it was fine but with my DS the doctor attempted to tilt it forward (I think… that was 5 years ago). It hurt like hell but then again I was carrying a 6lb baby and 30 lbs of fluid and fat so maybe that’s why. lol

I have one! I have had 2 baibes and during pregnany it usually straightens out and I have had no problems with delivery. Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but lay on your belly if you are TTC instead of putting your legs up!
