A retroverted uterus may sound a bit scary, but it’s nothing to be alarmed about. In most women, the uterus tilts slightly forward, towards the bladder, and this is known as a anteverted uterus. However, in some women, the uterus tilts backwards towards the spine, and this is known as a retroverted uterus.

A retroverted uterus is simply an anatomical variation, just like eye color, hair color, shoe size or height, and has nothing to do with how easy or hard it is for a woman to conceive. That being said, sometimes a medical issue can cause a retroverted uterus. Endometriosis and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease are two such causes.

A retroverted uterus affects about 20 percent of women, and there is no treatment, since it is not usually a problem. If you feel that your tilted uterus is hurting your chances of conceiving, you can try propping a pillow under your bottom during missionary sex, or try a position like all fours (doggystyle) where the sperm will be deposited close to the uterus.
