What is the Original Position of the Uterus?
The uterus is a freely suspending organ in the pelvic bowl, that is held up by four ligaments that hold the uterus in place. The ideal uterus position for a childbearing woman is anterverted, forming a right angle with vagina if the bladder and the rectum empty.
There are many other variations of position of the uterus such as retroverted uterus etc. Since the position of your uterus does not affect your fertility directly, if you have not gone for an ultrasound, your doctor may not even mention the position to you.
In this section we are not talking about the naturally occurring position of the uterus, but when the uterus moves “out of position” from your naturally positioned uterus whatever they may be.
