Tilted uterus
My gynae said that my uterus is " tilted" . I understand it is tilted backwards instead of the correct upward position. What does this mean? Are there any risks or complications due to this condition? Will I have trouble becoming pregnant and/or giving birth?

25% of women have a uterus that is tilted backwards. It doesn't affect falling pregnant or giving birth. It is just a variant of normal.
