A retroverted uterus Body is is tilted back,making it's lower end tilt forwords. This obliterates bladder opening& causes retained urine,
That is why the retroverted uterus gives rise to recurrent bladder/kidney infections.
The infection & retaintion is exaggeratted at menses & so you get pain in bladder during menses.
Along with treatment of PCOD, you should get treatment of bladder infection & also try to correct the uterine position by manual procedure, pessary, exercises, Consult a Gynecologist/ Nephrologist / physio therapist for guidance.
Usually, the retrovertion is automatically corrected after pregnancy (16 weeks )
Some times surgery is needed to correct extreme retrovertion.
