OK, this is like the 40th time I've seen something on JM saying this that or the other thing about a titled uterus, which I first had I had during my second pregnancy and was told it pretty much meant nothing. However, on JM I always see stuff saying it does mean something. So, anybody ever heard or seen actual research on this?

It really depends on the severity of it; called a Retroverted Uterus. It's normal for women who have had a full term pregnancy to have a slightly tilted uterus, and moreso for those of us who have had several full term pregnancies. A small number of women are born with it.

Usually it's not a big deal at all. But sometimes it can affect fertility or cause painful periods, but usually not so much because of the tilting...but because of the reason it's tilted in the first place. Pelvic adhesions, fibroids, endometriosis can all pull the uterus out of it's proper position. They can all cause pain and infertility whether or not the uterus becomes tilted as a result of those problems.

My mom, sister, and I all had/ have one which is likely due to our endo. I say had because my mom had a hysterectomy and mine actually went back to the normal position after my last surgery. Like Shawna said, it's not usually the tilted uterus all by itself that causes problems (some women have it and never know and it never changes anything), but by an underlying condition that causes infertility.

I know a few ladies who have the tilted uterus tilted cervix combo.. makes it a lil harder on the swimmers to get where they need to be. It can also make finding the baby on ultrasound difficult externally for a while, and can make finding the heart beat take longer with a Doppler.

One of the girls I went to HS with has the tilted uterus cervix combo. It's so bad that after 7 years of trying she finally went to see a specialist. No one knows why her regular doctor never mentioned it during a pap.. but the doctor said that when laying on her back her cervix rested firmly against her vaginal wall... built in birth control. 1 cycle of doing it in a different position and they're pregnant. I've been having major jealousy issues with my friends getting pregnant.. but this made me REALLY happy this morning when I saw the news

I found out that after my 2nd full term pregnancy I have one. I had no idea, it hasn't caused any issues for me and I'm not really sure it would. I've went on to have 2 more full term pregnancies and 3 miscarriages so the swimmers are defiantly finding where they need to go lol. My cervix was hard to check after my second, my midwives always had to "dig" for it because it was posterior until labor then it shifted.

My mom had one after her first pregnancy. I don't really know much more about it though.
