Does having a tilted uterus mean it came from an infection? I was told I have a tilted uterus but never had an STD just BV and yeast infections

See answer. In most cases, a tipped, tilted, retroverted uterus is genetic and is perfectly normal but there are other factors that can cause the uterus to be tilted including: prior pelvic surgery, pelvic adhesions, endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease, or pregnancy and the labor of childbirth. Not caused by vaginitis (bsv or yeast).

Could a tilted uterus cause vaginal burning and pain during sex I have never had an underlying STD just bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection?

See answer. ~20% of females born in the U.S. Have a tipped/tilted uterus which simply means that the uterus is not in a normal up and down placement but tipped forward or back in comparison to where it should be aligned. Though usually asymptomatic, it may be associated with pain during sex or menstruation. Vaginal burning unassociated with sex would not be a typical symptom. Gynecologist can provide answer.

Odor before and after period. No STD or BV. No yeast infection. Dr said ph is off balance. Affecting sex life. Yogurt not helping. What can I do?

Bacterial vaginosis. Tallk to your doctor about rechecking for bacterial vaginosis, or get a second opinion. BV is by far the most common cause of both vaginal odor and "pH off balance". Yogurt never helps it. Trichomonas also is a possibility, and is missed over half the time by looking for it under a microscope; ask for the newer DNA test. Keep working on it -- this problem can be solved and effectively treated. Read more...

STD is possible. Cervical inflammation (cervicitis) is the main finding in women with gonorrhea or chlamydia. But other problems can also cause it, and both these STDs are uncommon in women over 30 -- depending of course on risks like new partner, partner with other partners, etc. Non-STD causes of cervicitis are poorly understood. Your doc probably did a pap smear, since HPV/dysplasia can mimmic cervictitis. Read more...
