Cervix towards left or right???
My cervix is towards the left...during IUI they sometimes have a hard time getting a hold of it...does anyone else also have cervix not in the center?? Does that mean anything?? Can this be a cause of infertility??

Yes, I do have that problem.  My cervix goes to the right and my doctor did have a hard time to get it to the point she can do IUI.  

I do not know for sure, maybe next time i will ask my doctor about it....  My cervix moved every direction.  :-(

Well I have a tilted uterus (or retroverted as they call it). I'm sure that would make your cervix go in a different direction.  I conceived twice successfully without even trying so I'm sure you shouldn't have any problems.  You might want to try different positions though.  Sometimes I hear that rear-entry is good to increase your chances.

I think the retroverted uterus can cause back pain or more menstrual pain, depending on which way it tilts.

Good luck!!

I have a normal uterus...only my cervix is towards the left....someone was saying that it could be a sign of endo...my RE has not told me anything of that sort...but i would like to know if the cervix that is not in the center is a symptom of anything

so far i have gathered it doesnt sound like its a problem...as long as your cervix is opening regardless of which side the openig...sperm will swim in

i have not found any link to endo associated with a cervix that is left or right

I googled a lot too...all i got were some post saying they had cervix located on side...but nothing beyond that, thus I though I'd ask here.

I think it was Heather's RE or Ob/GYN who indicated its possible relation to endo.

By nurse always tells me that it is my anatomy. I have a consult with my RE on 27th...will definitely ask him then. In the mean time, any inputs are helpful...i will continue to research

I think a tilted cervix is pretty common, but it can make it a bit more difficult to get the catheter in for an IUI. I have the same issue (can't remember if it tilts to the left or right), but my RE drew a little diagram noting how it tilts, so after my first IUI, it was a lot easier. Best of luck to you!

A tilted cervix in and of itself should not affect your chances.

Hi, was wondering if someone could help. A couple years ago I had a smear test and the nurse had trouble doing it as she said my cervix was in a strange place and its lower down than it should be. Can anyone tell me what this means? I have been trying for a baby for a few months and so far no luck, is this anything to do with my cervix?

I wish i had answers for you all, but i have questions instead...  I have known that I have a tilted uterus for quite some time but never my cervix.. I have kept a very good chart of my cervical position for sometime.  I have had 2 bearings and countless miscarriages.  I can only assume that it is because of my cervical position and uterus. Each time I charted my pregnancies and miscarriages however, my cervical  position was always upright and normal. this cycle I am tilted. Could that mean that this could mean a healthy gestation instead? I do not know. But I wish. and my wishes extend to all of you who wish to conceive. God and Goddess bless us all..
