tilted uterus

I have two questions. I recently found out I have a tilted uterus. I had high bp and head to be induced just a few days before my sure date. I read previous childbirth could cause this. Could that pregnancy have caused this? And what are my chances of having another baby?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would reassure you that up to 40% of women have a "tilted" uterus.  It almost certainly won't interfere with your chances of another baby.  The elevated blood pressure is unrelated.  It could happen again with your next pregnancy, but you actually have a greater percentage chance that it won't happen again.
Good luck!
