@pittgirl4:  My cousin had a tilted uterus, and she had a very hard time conceiving (this was after two kids though). She ended up getting her uterus anchored. She has since conceived a child with one on the way, but it has taken her a few years. I don’t know much about it, and I don’t know what all else they can do.

There isn’t a connection between a tilted uterus and fertility (from what I’ve read online and from what I’ve asked my gyno), BUT a tilted uterus can be a sign of endometriosis, which DOES affect fertility.

A tilted uterus itself is fairly common and doesn’t affect fertility.

I know this because I have a retroverted (tilted) uterus and endo.

I had an ultrasound a few months back for a tilted uterus and the OBGYN explained that this was only because it could be a symptom of something else like a fibroid.  In the ultrasound the tech was like “dude this is completely normal, your organs move around on a daily basis because of your cycle and physical activity”… so it depends why you’re asking but I don’t think its something to be worried about.

@pittgirl4:  

I agree with Bella and ThisLove. A tilted uterus in and of itself does not affect fertility unless it is tilted due to another condition. 

A few years ago a gyno told me my uterus was tilted during an ultra sound, and then just two weeks ago when I had a ultrasound – I asked the new gyno about my uterus being tilted and she said that it wasn’t! She explained that your organs shift and move inside of you, and that things like your level of activity, weight loss or gain, ect can affect the position of your organs.

I would consult with your doctor. Best of luck!!

I have a tilted uterus and got pregnant the second month.

However, it does make it hard to find the baby’s HB at appointments until the uterus tips itself back up when the baby gets big enough. I had many, many, panic attacks.

Also, I believe I started showing later than women around my build that had normal uteruses.

Good luck!

My uterus is tilted and I’ve been pregnant 4 times without trying.  Don’t worry, you’ll be fine.

I have a tilted uterus and got preg within 3 months of ttc. I didn’t even know I had one until I went in for my first ultrasound.

@pittgirl4:  my mom has one and they told her it would be harder to conceive. I was born 1 year after their anniversary (almost to the day) and my brother was born about 2.5 years after me.

As far as positions go, my OB said man behind woman is the best and to lay on your stomach after.

Mine was tilted… and I got pregnant with an oopsie, so nope, no problems. My OB said it straighted out pretty early in the pregnancy, too, and I never had problems finding the heartbeat or feeling kicks or anything.
