Can I still get pregnant if my uterus is weak?

Can I still get pregnant if my uterus is weak?

Cervical insufficiency?: It's not completely clear to me what you mean by a week uterus. My best guess is that you're talking about cervical insufficiency, where the cervix starts to shorten and dilate painlessly in the mid trimester. In this case, obtaining pregnancy isn't the problem, but rather maintaining pregnancy once conception occurs is the issue. This is normally treated with a cerclage suture placed around the cervix between 13 and 15 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more

Need Testing: Your current pregnancy could be a miscarriage or possibly an ectopic pregnancy. At 6 weeks you would expect to see at least a gestational sac in the uterus if it were a normal pregnancy. Regardless, given several miscarriages you should see an rei (or good generalist) for testing for recurrent miscarriages (karytype, ultrasound/caviy eval, anti-phospholipid antibody testing, endocrine labs, etc. ...Read more

I have constant pain in my uterus. White blood cells in urine but no infection. I feel weak and tired. I have been spotting for 9 days?

Any constant pain: Should have an exam by a doctor. There are too many unknowns and too many variables to give you a definative answer on an internet forum. Pain is there for a reason, and usually it is to clue you that something is not right. I also find it confusing for your statement that you have white blood cells in your urine but no infection. Maybe the test is wrong. WBC in urine are not a normal finding ...Read more

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

Uterus: Anteverted and retroverted uterus is not about the shape of the uterus, it is about the position of it. Possibly the pregnancies stretched the ligaments supporting it and it's changed its position. Both positions are well within the normal range, though. ...Read more
