Also known as retroverted uterus, tilted uterus is a physical condition when the uterus of a woman is tilted backwards rather than forward. In this condition, the uterus is more towards the spine than towards the bladder which happens in case of an extroverted uterus. A tilted uterus is rarely a medical condition and is usually genetic. Uterine position is affected by conditions such as fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, and labour during childbirth and endometriosis.
However, sometimes a tilted uterus may signify an underlying health condition.
Endometriosis can be treated with pain medication. Surgery is also an option for treating endometriosis via methods such as laparoscopy and laparotomy. With these procedures the endometrial tissue is either burnt away or vaporised. This aids fertility and the woman’s chances of conceiving.
A tilted uterus has no effect on fertility. An underlying medical concern with a tilted uterus can pose some threat to fertility. However, these conditions can be easily treated.
