It is not: There is no such thing as a "very contracted" uterus. If you haven't had children before then your uterus should be small (6-8cm) but that does not mean it is contracted. If the uterus is smaller then that it might be from poor development of the uterus and for this you new to see a gynecologist that handles developmental problems.

Direction?: I haven't heard that term used to describe a uterus. Maybe the person that said that to you was speaking about the direction of your uterus? Uteruses (uteri) can be tipped forward, anteverted; not tipped at all or straight; or tipped backward (retroverted). Maybe that was what they were referring to? All variations of the tilt or tip of a uterus are normal, by the way.
