In brief: Retroverted Uterus

Is a term to describe a normal variant uterine shape, in which the top of the uterus is bent back towards the spine (back), as opposed to the more common anteverted uterus, where the bend places the top of the uterus over the bladder (towards the front).

In brief: Normal!

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. It can only be a problem if caused by past surgeries/endometriosis, otherwise OK.
