Or retroverted womb. My husband and I have been ttc for many months without success, I have been pretty accurate at timing my cycles and predicting ovulation and yet we still have not had any success. I found out when I was about 18 years old that I had a "tilted uterus" and didn't really think anything of this as it didn't seem like a big deal, but is it possible that this can prevent pregnancy in any way? I have even tried the propping my hips up on a pillow after intercourse thing and that didn't work. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I was told when I was 16 that I have a tilted uterus, but my dr. told me that shouldn't cause any problems with concieving. Since then I have switched doctors, and my obgyn now tells me she doesn't think I have a tilted uterus...but she also said even if I did it shouldn't cause me any problems in conceiving. But this is only my first month trying, so I can't say from experience just yet! Hope this helped some, and I hope you get the info you are looking for. Also, I thought I'd add when you do get pg, a tilted uterus is supposed to just straighten out and you shouldn't have any difficulties in pregnancy at all because of it. Good luck!

I was actually told about a year ago again by my current Dr. that I did have a tilted uterus. He sort of said 'by the way, did you know that........." They told me that I may have a hard time with natural childbirth, but if the uterus does straighten out than it shouldn't be a problem. Thank you viv for responding. Does anyone else know if it could be a problem, when trying to get pregnant???

Hello, I have a retroverted uterus and I don't know if it affects ttc. I had 1 miscarriage 10 years ago then had a daughter who is 9 yo. However since that time I have had 2 miscarriages since then. I know my sisters don't have a retroverted uterus and they have 2-4 children each. I don't know. Baby Dust to ya. I playing the waiting game.

I also have a tilted uterus and my OB/GYN told me that it woultdn't affect getting pregnant. However, ttc for almost two years now without success. The positive news for those of you with a tilted uterus is that they think the reason that I was having problems ttc was because of anovulatory cycles not because of the tilted uterus. Baby dust to all.

I have the same problem. I was told it may help if you lay on your abdomen afterwards instead of on your back with your hips propped up. Since it's tilted, your cervix might not be angled so it would lay in the pool of s____n if you are on your back. Hope this helps!

From the web "A tipped uterus is typically only thought to be problematic after all other possible reasons for fertility problems have been investigated and ruled out. If there is no other explanation for your fertility problems a uterine suspension may be recommended by your doctor. However, this is not common."

My mother has a tilted uterus and the doctors told her she would never have children because of it. (of course this was 35 years ago!) Anyway - she got married and never used contraception of any kind. She was married for 3 years when she got pregnant the first time. They said it was a miracle. 3 years later she got pregnant with me. Another MIRACLE according to them. Three years later she got pregnant with my brother. Three years later has my other brother. She stopped believing the "miracle" line. Then when she was 39 she got pregnant with my youngest brother when she was ON birth control! So it CAN happen! Perhaps you are like her and are only fertile every 3 years! I hope this helps.

I have a tilted uterus and have conceived 3 times with no problems. Sometimes it just takes time. Has the doctor determined that you are definitely fertile? I'm not sure if when you said you were trying for many months means 6 months or 26 months. :o)

thank you ladies for your answers. I haven't gone to the Dr about any fertility problems as of yet. My husband and I have been ttc for 10mths now and wanted to wait until at least a year before we went to the Dr. if were didn't get pregnant. But I have always had a clean bill of health on all exams, periods have been really regular since going off of bc and I've narrowed down when I ovulated, so I think for us maybe it's just a matter of having some good luck!!!
