Tilted Uterus

Anyone have an tilted/interred uterus? I've been ttc for almost 2 years with 1 mc in March this year.
I'm not too sure if it is my uterus that is causing the issues but as there is nothing else wrong with myself or husband I am putting it down to this.
Started AF this morning so feeling emotional.

Yes, I have a tilted bicornuate uterus which effectively means not only is it tilted but I have two sections to my uterus. I didn't know this until we went for further investigative tests after ttc for 2 years.

It did mean we needed ICSI as my only chance of 'getting pregnant' but this was more due to the fact that one side of my uterus was a lot smaller than the other so my Consultant had to put the embryo in the larger section so that should ICSI be successful, a baby was able to reach close to full term.

Have you considered IVF?

I have a tilted uterus.

It didn't cause me any trouble conceiving or delivering.

I read here that it helps sperm travel if you orgasm during sex.

Good luck

I do and have managed to get pregnant twice but only after I found out via a scan and worked with it ie basically laid upside down after sex. This was on the 8th month with my DD but worked first time this time. Only advice is sex every day of the month then legs up on the back of a chair, hanging upside down afterwards. Might be total coincidence but as I say, only tried it after the scan that diagnosed the tilted uterus.

I have one and the night we conceived DS we did it 'doggy style'' and it obviously worked! I've since read it is a well known position for conceiving with a tilted uterus.

Surely it's worth a try!

I forgot to add, my Consultant told me at the time we were going through IVF that a tilted uterus is quite common and most women don't discover they have this until after they have given birth. Obviously with me I had bigger problems than just a tilted uterus and our problems conceiving were due to my uterus also being quite an extreme example of the condition (they initially thought I had two wombs as my uterus was split into two sections).

Not sure if this is helpful or not but I do and got pregnant second month after coming off the pill both times. Second time I was still breastfeeding. I have heard that it can make it more difficult to conceive but didn't work out like that for me.

I have one too and conceived not long after trying, both times. I don't think it causes a problem with conceiving usually from what I've read and heard. My gran told me that she has one too (maybe it's hereditary!?) and she has 5 children.

A tilted womb is just a normal variant.. It's like being right or left handed. this alone won't be the cause of your problems sad

Thanks for the replies ladies.
I have a 3 year old son but we never tried with him I just got pregnant, I only discovered my uterus was tilted 2 months ago but can't help but think that's our problem. I am going to try the legs in the air this month for sure.
It's just so disheartening getting my AF every month. I was certain I was pregnant this time with pains and cramps throughout the 2ww but hey ho AF this morning.

I have a tilted uterus. First time I conceived straightaway then a few miscarriages. second and third time I was "on top". A tilted uterus doesn't cause miscarriages though because once you conceive and the uterus gets heavier, it pops forward like a normal uterus.

Your miscarriage must have another root problem. Please don't start blaming your body: it's a horrible thing to go through I know and it's not your fault flowers. Have you had vitamin levels checked?

Also to add when I went for the scan it showed I ovulated from both ovaries but yet none of them fertilised
