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?

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
