U/s report said I had a retroverted uterus. Three months later, u/s said it was anteverted and then 6 month later u/s report said retroverted? Why?

May depend on how: Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into.

Also, were both us examinations the same? Transvaginal would have an empty bladder and transabdominal a full bladder.

Finally, having stool in the rectum and sigmoid colon would displace the uterus upwards and forward. ...Read more
