It it possible for retroverted uterus cause miscarriages?

No effect: A retroverted uterus is one that's tilted towards your back, rather than your abdomen; it occurs in 20% of women and does not have symptoms, RARELY associated with discomfort. It can't be prevented and there's no need to treat b/c it won't affect your fertility/ability to continue a pregnancy/have a vaginal delivery.

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
