Q&A: What Is a Tilted Uterus?

My doctor said I have a tilted uterus. What does that mean?

A tilted uterus is exactly what it sounds like—it's when your uterus leans more toward the front (anterior) or the back (posterior) of your body. Don't worry, though. A tilted uterus is not a cause for concern, and it's actually quite common. You don't need to fix it, and it shouldn't affect your ability to conceive or to deliver a perfectly healthy baby. Hooray!
