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:

Ectopic preg./PID.: There are many possibilities, but two of the most important are ectopic pregnancy, and pid or pelvic inflammatory disease.

A sonogram may be helpful with the diagnosis. ...Read more
