Dear Stacey:
25% of women have a "tipped uterus", meaning that it falls backwards rather than forwards. This has not meaning and requires no treatment.
Uterine position is not a method of birth control and not an explanation for infertility. Forty to 50 years ago, operations to correct the position of the uterus (a suspension) was common treatment for bleeding abnormalities, painful periods, infertility, sexual dysfunction: there was no value to the surgery.
