tilted uterus

Can a woman with one have kids?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that this term is commonly used when a woman has a uterus that tips back over her rectum rather than forward over her bladder.  About 40% of women have a "tipped" uterus at some point, and it can change with pregnancies, etc.  The short answer to your question is "YES"!
Good luck!

Yes, a tilted uterus simply means that the fundus (the top of the uterus) is pointed posteriorly (to your back) as opposed to anteriorly (toward your front) is has no bearing on your fertility. If you end up getting pregnant, the uterus usually corrects it's position late in the first trimester, and rarely causes any complications.
