Don't know for sure: No good evidence yet that endometriosis is a cause of recurrent miscarriage (2 or more losses). Endo. May affect embryo implantation, which affects getting pregnant not staying pregnant.

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. Sometimes women with retroverted uteri (tilted back), also have endometriosis. Endometriosis can cause infertility but does not increase risk for miscarriage. 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

This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well. You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you. ...Read more
Endo: In short we don't know. There are some theories that suggest that endometriosis occurs because of back bleeding through the fallopian tubes into the pertoneal cavity and the body is not able to digest this blood for which reason endometriosis develops. Most women have retrograde menses but only about 10 percent may get endometriosis due to a faulty immunological system. ...Read more
