Probably normal.: A tilted cervix (or uterus) is just describing what the position of these organs is. It is not abnormal and does not need to be fixed. Some are tilted forward, some backward, and some right in the middle. One position is not better than the other. It is the way you were born. No worries!

Retroverted uterus: Having a retroverted uterus does not cause an injury to the body. It might cause some pain during sexual relations depending on position etc. Retroverted uterus can be caused by normal pelvic variation, adehesions, endometriosis, multiple surgeries, fibroid uterus etc.

Could a tilted cervix cause sexual difficulties?

Unlikely: It's very unlikely for "tilted" cervix to cause sexual difficulties (you didn't mention what kind) since most are not aware of their cervix position & do just fine. If you're concerned, please write back w/more detail re specific sexual difficulties. Better yet, discuss your concerns w/your FamilyDoc, GYN or Planned Parenthood. While you didn't list any medications, perhaps it's a side effect.
