Does Having A Tilted Uterus Make It More Common To Have An Ectopic Pregnancy
Probably not: Ectopic pregnancies occur when the sperm and egg meet and fertilize and then the fertilized ovum does not make it to the uterus. This is usually a tubal issue (scarring, obstruction, etc). The fertilized egg continue to grow and the tube cannot handle the size and growth and ruptures. Tilting of the uterus in my opinion would not be a recognized cause for this condition. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Too fragile: Once an ectopic pregnancy has started to grow, the tissue is not accessible to be mobilized and replaced or implanted in the uterus. The tissue is too fragile number one, and the knowledge of how to make such an existing pregnancy actually reimplant itself is lacking at this time.

This risk drops dramatically to less than 5% when an embryo with a heartbeat is seen. It is also possible to have an ectopic pregnancy with a gestational sac in the uterus but this is rare, about 1 in 30,000 naturally conceived pregnancies. ...Read more
I'm having an u/s tomorrow to see if I am having an ectopic pregnancy, but my uterus feels hard when laying on my stomach. Is that possible?
Uterine ectopic pregnancy is where it is in the uterus but not the uterine cavity. Why isn't it viable? Just a little more surgery at birth is needed.

If a Gestational sac is in the uterus is it possible to be an ectopic pregnancy? Or is a tubal pregnancy ruled out.
Unlikely but possibl: Heterotopic pregnancies (one "inside" one "outside") are uncommon but can happen. They are more common with assisted reproduction vs. natural, but can happen either way. The risk is not statistically higher than 1 in 100 and is usually much lower. Keep an eye on things but it's not likely for ectopic. Good wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
