Tilted Uterus

I had a son 3 years ago and have never been told I had a tilted uterus until yesterday. How is it possible to suddenly have a tilted uterus? Will it go back to normal?

Could it cause problems in another pregnancy? Could it be why I feel so bloated lately?

I worked for an OBGYN for 7 years. A "tilted" uterus is so common that now any doctor that keeps up with current medical stuff should know that it is actually still normal. There is nothing to worry about at all.

Well, mine never went back and it was done during pregnancy with my daughter. She is now 18. she also spread my rib cage and my ribs are crooked..lol. But I have a 4 yr old son and I was never told that it could keep me from getting pregnant. Allot of things happen to our bodies bc of pregnancy. I am not a professional so I would ask your dr. if your really concerned but honestly I think you will be fine. Hope that helps.

2 of my friends have it too. One went into labour at 31 weeks but they stemmed the contractions and she ended up having him at 35 weeks. The other is currently pregnant, about 26 weeks i think.

I was told when I was 18 that I had a tilted uterus, I had 3 healthy babies, no c-sections. I don't think that it really matters and it wouldn't cause the bloated feeling. Ask you DR if you have any questions.

I was told at 17 my uterus was so severely tilted that I would not ever be able to conceive. Lo and behold, 4 months later I was pregnant. I've now had 2 babies, both perfectly fine. I was not able to carry either to full term (both were 4-5 weeks early) but that isn't necessarily because of the tilted uterus. I do have severe cramping and heavy bleeding during my period because of this and have actually been put on hormones to help with the amount of bleeding, duration of period, and it also seems to help with the cramps.

I have tilted and higher up uterus and just had my son 4 months ago, it's not an issue, if you're bloated, it's from a different reason. Good luck

I was also informed that I have a severly tiled uterus and that they can actually correct themselves after a pregnancy mine did not it poped right back to wher eit was so I was told I have never actually seen it LOL , But I will twell youthis funny little thing so I was getting an annual ladies check up and my doctor is a teaching doctor so anyway she gets started and was like wow your uterus is so far back ther and its extremly hard to find do you mind if I go get my students and have them take a look at this its quite inpressive I was like okay I guess so then I had 5 people checking out my uterus I could have died it funny now and I really am not a modest person but I was so stunned at the time I didnt know what to do .

But after learning of my amazing uterus haha I was told that really the only things that can be effected by this would be that it can be harder to concieve and i think for me I really am not that fertail not that I cant concieve because I do have a 9 year old but we rarly use b control we just use the calander and arnt particularly careful and hes my only child but hoprfully wont always be we may start trying for one more in the next year and that it can cause more heavy flow and more sever menstral cramp than average which I do have pretty bad peroids but that really all that I need to be concerned about I have never had a doctor suggest anything to correct hte situation so I assume that its more normal than people think

Hi Miranda, they say having a tilted uterus can cause problems getting pregnant, but I cannot say its true. I have had one all my life and have had a child. I still have it. So hope this helps a little. I also got pregnant about four months after I had my first, lost that one though not because of that.

i have one too and have given birth to 5 children with a 6th on the way. the only problem they have told me is with fertility. apparently most women have more problems getting that way with a tilted uterus. but i have not. every time i show up pregnant they are a little puzzled at how easily i have gotton that way. especially since all but one of my kids were conceived on birth control. but that is the only side effect i have heard of from a tilted uterus. i say be happy you are one of those without this problem and enjoy life. i dont think it would cause bloating but some do say they have horrible cramps from it. good luck and i hope this helps.

After child birth the weight of the pregancy will change every part of your body including your uterus. But its nothing to be worried about you will be fine and no they will not fix on its own. I had a uterus suspention surgery at 22 because my uterus started falling out of my vigina but as far as your problem it will not become a problem!

Don't panic mine has always been and yours probably has too just not been noticed before and I have had two children. It is only a problem when scar tissue is involved.

Hi Miranda from i was pregnant with my first child 20 yrs ago i was informed by my doctor that i had a tilted uterus. The doctor explained that you can still have normal pregnancies it is just that your uterus is just placed differently than the norm. As a matter of fact, my other two sisters uterus are also tilted and they all have children with no complications. I don't think it causes any bloating, because i have never felt bloated or notice anything different. My last child is 13 months easy delivery with no complications.
