To be honest I don't know much about an inverted uterus however I know that delivery is much more difficult as the baby may keep hitting the pelvic bone. It should not lessen your chances of conceiving however it may be more difficult to detect an early heart beat especially with a doppler. Wish I could be of more help
I have a retro inverted uterus, not really rare, but hard to see on ultrasound. They have to get creative sometimes to get pics. It straightens out with the growth of the baby, but will go back in place after delivery. I grew up having difficult periods, but have no idea if this was a related cause or not. Because of back trouble, I had pain carrying babies, but again , not sure if the uterus position contributed to this or not.
About 2 years ago now, i was volunteering myself as a patient for an Ultra Sound Training School and was told that i have an inverted Uterus, didnt really know much about it at the time but later found out that it is becoming more and more common in females. My mother has an inverted uterus aswell, she hasnt had a problem conceiving as i am her 6th child.. but.. my partner and i have been trying for a child for just over a year now.. i am constantly told that i am going to have trouble conceiving naturally.
I have in inverted uterus and it hasn't caused any trouble. I am pregnant with my 5th baby right now at the age of 38 and also was able to conceive at 35 both times within a few months of starting to try. best of luck to you!
I doubt you mean an "inverted uterus" you probably mean "retroverted uterus" which is much more common. An inverted uterus is a complication from delivery which is very painful and must be fixed right away.
A retroverted uterus can be caused by pregnancy, menopause, or another gyncological condition or it can be perfectly naturally occuring. It is where the uterus is simply tipped back towards the spine instead of forward towards the belly button. About 20% of women have it. Most of the time, women who have it feel no symptoms and it doesn't affect them.
Sometimes, women will feel pain during sex or menstruation, but that is rare.
and doggy style sex is better for women who have a retroverted uterus because of the angle the penis goes in. Don't ask me why I know that, just strange trivia.
An inverted uterus is more common than people think.
I've had two sons, now grown, with an inverted uterus and with my first son, I was young and my body was strong and healthy and no problems. With my second son there were complications only because of stress and relationship issues which caused high blood pressure.
You simply have or do not have an inverted uterus.. this is what my doctor rold me.. it is not 'caused' by anything.
For those who have problems conceiving, a simple trick is to put a pillow under your behind during intercourse.
LOL Ryan, You mean retroverted. It means that her uterus tilts the other way than normal. A woman's uterus normally tilts forwards, resting on her bladder. A retroverted uterus tilts backwards.
The tilt of her uterus will control where inside her vagina her cervix will point. About 20% of all women have a retroverted (or tilted) uterus. Combined with a cervix that are sensitive to touch, this can be a problem during sex. So all the positions that you like with deep penetration can be painful for her. You have to experiment to find a position comfortable for her.
With her on top, she can determine the angle and the depth and she should be able to find a comfortable angle. both of you also have access to her breasts and clitoris in this position which makes it even better.
She can also close her legs in normal missionary position with your knees outside her legs. That makes for tighter and shallower thrusting.
Positions where you enter her from behind can also be more comfortable. Spooning and her flat on her belly can be good. Doggy can however cause very deep penetration and pain.
So in summary, experiment and communicate with her during sex to make sure it is not uncomfortable for her.
Yes, the deeper you penetrate, the more likely it is that you will hit her cervix. That is true for all women. It is probably the reason why women talk about large men as being thick, while men talk about length.
At different times of her cycle, her cervix moves up and down in her vagina, so what is pleasant one day, may be painful the next week.
So if you are well endowed, be careful about how deep you penetrate her. If her cervix are sensitive, poking it is as uncomfortable as sticking your finger in your eye.
I wished I had read some of the posts years ago, it would have saved me a lot of pain mentally and physically. If you have a retroverted uterus always always rmind your doctor before a PAP test.
My husband and I have found wrapping my legs around his waist is nice or even having a over stuffed pillow. Having open conversation is the best. My problem now is I get very dry and I am allergic to Latex ointments.
I have this condition and the only problem I have ever had that has bothered me is if I have to get a pap from a gynecologist I have never seen before, they have trouble locating my cervix because it points up. Other than that...no real problems. It can take a little longer to get pregnant, but positions where the man is in back has worked perfect for me in conceiving my two children. I did not have problems giving birth which was a major concern for me. It's really pretty common and not a major issue which is why her doctor wasn't so concerned. She'll be ok and those women who have this condition, there is no reason to assume you will have any major issues.
I just found out today during a routine PAP that I have an "upside down" uterus (the Dr.'s words, not mine). This makes sense, as I used to enjoy all sorts of positions but for the last few years anything other than missionary has been pretty uncomfortable - what I would describe as an achy feeling in the stomach. I am glad that I have an explanation now so my husband doesn't think I am just boring! We don't have any children yet but hopefully when we are ready to try it won't cause a problem...
I am a massage therapist and two of my specialties are fertility massage therapy and visceral manipulation. When a uterus is inverted it is muscular majority of the time. Part of my job is to maneuver it back in place. So far, many women I have worked with has their uterus back in place through my practice. Its not the end all to childbirth. It just means your body needs TLC. Also chiropractic and acupuncture can help with realigning an inverted uterus. PCOS is something I see all the time and fertility massage has been beneficial with treating PCOS and an inverted uterus. I hope this is helpful. This is not the end if you are trying to conceive
