Can I have fertility problems if I have a retroverted uterus?

By Sergio Rogel Cayetano.
Last Update: 03/26/2020

No, although this concept was discussed many years ago, the position of the uterus does not directly affect fertility.

It is true that sometimes the uterus leans backwards (retroverted uterus) as a result of pathologies that produce adhesions, such as endometriosis, or abdominal inflammatory processes. Since these pathologies are associated with a decrease in fertility, we must be attentive to them in these cases.

However, most retrogressive uteruses are not secondary to pathology, but a natural position that the uterus adopts spontaneously.
