Does anyone else have this and will it make a difference to pregnancy and/or labour?
I was told I have this, no idea what it means and so far hasn't caused any problems I'm aware of. I did the worst possible thing and googled and it started telling me about painful back labours so I closed out of it. Don't need to be any more scared about labour
Just had a look in my pregnancy book & it says that a retroverted uterus is:
'An unusual position of the uterus where it is leaning backwards, which occurs in about about 15% of women & is of no consequence. It has no effect on fertility & does not cause miscarriage. It may very rarely block urination in the early stages of pregnancy'.
Stay away from google, it's not good for us hormonal pregnant ladies
Lets just hope babs moves our little (or not so little) uterus' into the correct position.
I have it too. I was told at routine smear and then at subsequent appointments at colposcopy clinic. TBH only difference to me so far is that smear taking a little more awkward. Its whe the uterus is tilted towards the back rather than the front. I have been told by my acupuncturist that it can usually correct itself during pregnancy and ave not really given it more thought really since.
Haven't had a problem with smears so fingers crossed all will be fine
Thanks guys, didn't know it could correct itself, that'd be good
i have this too - my consultant told me that it automatically corrects itself in pregnancy so shouldn't cause any probs - at least thats what i'm hoping!!!
the pressure of the babies head usually corrects this stay away from google and stop worrying!
Yep I have this too but it had corrected itself by 16 weeks. Just means that smears are a little more awkward and I had to use an internal wand for ultrasounds up to 16 weeks
