Q&A: Will my tilted uterus prevent me from becoming pregnant?
I was informed that I had a tilted uterus several years back. I am trying to conceive and have had no luck so far. Will my tilted uterus prevent me from becoming pregnant?
A tilted uterus, also called a tipped or a retroverted uterus, is more common than you might think. According to the Mayo Clinic, around 20 percent of women have this condition. A tilted uterus should not prevent you from getting pregnant.
In rare instances, a tilted uterus may indicate an underlying condition called endometriosis.
You don’t mention how long you’ve been trying to conceive, but as a general guideline, if you haven’t been able to get pregnant after six months or so, you should contact your healthcare provider and schedule an appointment to see if you have any unresolved issues relating to your fertility.
