A few years ago I was told by my doctor that I had a tilted womb. What does this mean?

The uterus (womb) tilts forwards in about 80% of women, this is known as an anteverted uterus. It can tilt backwards in about 20% of women-this is known as a retroverted uterus. A retroverted uterus does not mean you are any less fertile unless there is a cause for it such as endometriosis or pelvic infection. Nor does it commonly cause problems in pregnancy, because as the womb grows upwards, it tilts neither forwards nor backwards and the retroversion corrects itself.
