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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Previable contractio: It is not ok. Preterm and especially previable uterine contractions are bad news and could lead to preterm birth or pregnancy loss respectively. See your obstetrician to determine your particular diagnosis and plan of care as soon as possible. You may need to treat a urinary tract infection, take some tylenol, (acetaminophen) relax on bedrest, or be admitted to the hospital for observation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am not pregnant, but when I sneeze the muscles of my uterus contract and stay contracted for up to 10 minutes. What is causing this?
Nerves: It is really cool in some ways, but i can understand the concern. The nerves in the pelvis that make the muscles contract to sneeze can be closely related to the nerves to the uterus. For some people, this means that sneezing or hard coughing makes the uterus contract. If you get a cold, Ibuprofen can help decrease the pretty painful contractions. ...Read more

Is it safe to masterbate, orgasm and have sex while you have a subchorionic hematoma in early and late pregnancy? Orgasms make your uterus contract?
See answer: The presence of ultrasound-detected subchorionic hemorrhage (hematoma) increases risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, abruptio placentae, and preterm labor. Depending on your findings and md, may advise strict bed rest, refrain from lifting heavy objects, and avoid exercise. In most cases, you’ll be asked to avoid sexual intercourse (and masturbation?) until the hematoma dissolves and disappears. ...Read more
Yes: I'm not sure how you know that your uterine wall is thin? That typically isn't a diagnosis that is given without very detailed imaging, such as a mri. Having said that maybe you had surgery previously and doctor told you it was thin? Regardless, uterus is very strong and likely can hold a pregnancy even if it's 'thin' as you say. See doctor for more information, though, so you can understand. ...Read more
Maybe: The uterus changes throughout pregnancy. A fibroid may appear as a 'thick' uterine wall, though they are usually distinct on ultrasound. A contraction will also make the uterine mall appear thicker. Later in pregnancy the lower uterine walls may appear thinner. You may want to ask your provider to clarify what was described as thick. ...Read more
Up, Out and Right!: In general, the uterus "grows" out of the pelvis by the start of the second trimester (14 weeks). Additionally, with ascent from the pelvis, the uterus usually undergoes rotation with tilting to the right (dextro-rotation), probably due to presence of the rectosigmoid colon on the left side. This adds to the symptoms of "soreness" at each side of the uterus called "round ligament" pain. This is qu. ...Read more
See below: Your uterus will be in the middle of your abdomen/pelvis about half way between your pubic bone and belly button. By 20 weeks it will be at the level of your belly button. After 20 weeks your doctor will use a tape measure to measure the height of the uterus. This measurement will usually be as many centimeters as you're weeks plus or minus two. Example at 24 weeks your uterus will be 22-26 cm. ...Read more
Cannot tell you...: I'm afraid that is not enough information to answer your question. Depends on whether you know this based on a subjective comment during an exam or if you had an ultrasound that showed an abnormal uterus. And even then, would need to know about the rest of your reproductive organs (tubes, ovaries, etc.). I'd suggest to make an appt and discuss this with the doctor that informed you of it. ...Read more
Varies: For a woman having her first baby the cervix usually begins to soften around 30 to 34 weeks. Most women do not dilate more than a centimeter or two until they are in labor. But after having a vaginal delivery, the cervix can easily be several centimeters dilated as early as 30 to 34 weeks. None of this applies when there is premature or preterm labor. ...Read more
