Gynaecological question: I have a retroverted uterus. How do I go abo...

Retroveted uterus on it own is not a known cause of infertility or subfertility. It can be normal in a proportion of women.
If you do have a problem conceiving, I would advise you to see your GP who can then refer you to see a fertility expert for appropriate investigation.

An additional factor to consider is that a patient with a retroverted uterus may have severe endometriosis causing the retroversion which on its own may cause difficulty in conceiving.

With severe endometriosis the uterus is more likely to be in a fixed retroverted position. In most cases the uterus is mobile and will self-correct once pregnancy occurs. Normally, it does not affect fertility, unless there are other factors.
