    I've had problems with constipation and bloating all my life, then around AF time would be the only time it that would go away, just for a few days. Because with a tilted uterus it faces backwards instead of forwards, it can be pressing on your bowel.

    All that time they thought I had endometriosis (then found I didn't) and kept telling me there was nothing wrong with me, even that the pain I felt DTD was in my head and just happened because I expected it to happen, all that time it was as simple as that - your insides kind of face the wrong way!

    Worth getting checked out Shrillian, they can tell from a two second internal. I feel like at least some things make sense now!

    Well, we might be in the same boat then! I think it's so silly that no-one said anything to me years ago. I had a laparoscopy and everything to try and figure out what was going on! It would have been nice to know this 18 years ago when I first started complaining

    One other thing she did tell me is that once I do get pregnant, when you have a tilted uterus it can make it harder for them to hear the heartbeat during a normal ultrasound, and not to be alarmed if that is the case! I'm glad she told me that

    I got given this exact advice too for my silly retroverted uterus! Coincidently the 2 times I have fallen were following the above advice

    Oh really Bel? Well, that sounds promising, I think we better give it a go! I think I'll message my Husband at work right now and tell him "when you fly home next week, this is what we're going to do..." Just so he knows I'm sure he'll appreciate it with 4 days to go hehe

    I think when uterus is in normal position you should raise hips
    If it's retroverted you lie on stomach or all 4's with bottom in the air, elbows on mattress

    Yep, Bel is right Shrillian, the dr told me with a retroverted uterus you should lie on your stomach afterwards, not the usual advice of raising your hips on your back So worth finding out of you have it so you know which way you should go
