I didn't have any symptom of endometriosis before i got pregnant then why I have tilted uterus what doc should do is it normal or will cause miscarriag?

No miscarriage: Having a tilt to one's uterus (forward, backward or midline) doesn't affect infertility or miscarriage at all.

There's nothing to "do" about a tilted uterus, it's a normal variation. Best of luck and thank you for using healthtap! ...Read more
