What is the retroverted uterus?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 12/31/2021

Retroverted or inverted uterus is a uterine anomaly that can be congenital or acquired. It consists of a variation in the position of the uterus, so that it points backwards (towards the intestine) instead of forwards (anteverted uterus).

In principle, women with a retroverted uterus do not have infertility problems, although they may experience discomfort during bowel movements or sexual intercourse.
