I recently was at my OBGYN's for my routine annual pap smear and she mentioned that my vagina is tilted. I didn't think anything of it when she said it, but later I came home and tried to research it and couldn't find anything about tilted vaginas, I mainly only came across information about a tilted uterus so I'm wondering if since my vagina is tilted does that mean that my uterus is tilted as well or is it nothing?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment whether vagina is tilted or uterus is tilted without examining you. If worried, consider confirming your examination findings with your treating doctor/gynecologist. Tilted or retroverted uterus is not a problem and gets corrected on its own when you get pregnant. If any other problem has been detected, further treatment options would be discussed with you based on the examination findings and evaluation results.
Take care.
