    Exclamation * Retroverted Uterus

    Hi girls,

    Just have a quetion to ask, my doctor said that my uterus is retroverted and she said is normal. But I heard it is more difficult to get pregnant, is that true? Any tips about position etc that will help TTC? OR direct me to any thread if this topic has been touched before.

    Much appreciated!

    Beautiful Adelaide!

    Hi there,

    I'm not sure I can give you any actualadvice, but a girl who works with my DH has this type of uterus.......I believe it can be likened to a heart shaped uterus?

    Anyway, she got pregnant (quite quickly.....not long TTC) last year and her OB diasnosed the retroverted at her 8 week scan.

    She was PG with twins, and lost one of them at 9 weeks (which apparently is very common with twin pregnancies) but carried the other baby full term and now has a beautiful baby girl of 9 months.

    Just wanted to share that to give you a positive slant!

    Best of luck,

    I can't help you with retroverted as mine in anteverted, but I had no major trouble in falling pregnant.

    I have seen a few websites though that say it shouldn't cause any problems here is a quote from one
    A retroverted uterus -- one tipped backwards -- is normally seen in up to 20 percent of all women. It is definitely not a cause of infertility

    I have a retroverted uterus and for me it didnt hurt my fertilty. However having 6 unexplained miscarriages makes me wonder if it was one of many factors that could of contributed to my losses. I do not know anything for sure so do not let it scare you. I have 2 children and one on the way so it hasnt all been bad news.

    Hi.. I have a retrograde uterus and it doesn't effect your fertility. It is a factor in your delivery (the Dr just needs to be aware) and possibly the way you carry.

    I have a retroverted uterus, and it didn't hinder my ability to fall PG at all. I had 2 m/c but that's apparently not anything to do with that. I fell PG on 3 occasions, the very first time we tried.
