Retroverted uterus

What is Retroverted uterus?

It is the orientation of the body of the uterus with respect to the cervix; a retroverted uterus is one which falls backward on the cervix. Though this is the second common type as compared to the anteverted one, it still is seen in many. Sometimes, it may cause delayed conception owing to the unfavorable position for the ascending sperms.

As the size of fibroid is quite large so in my opinion conservative treatment will not be able to cure this fibroid .
Consult a gynecologist and get hysterectomy ( surgical removal of fibroid ) as at this age group this is only possible treatment .
Good luck.

Hello madam

Retroverted uterus and endometrial thickness of 11 mm is not a threat that hinders pregnancy.

You are 30 years old, so plan for conception as early as possible since the ovarian reserve decreases as age advances.

I have been having severe leg pain for about 3 years now. My toes have been going numb since i gave birth to my twins 8 years ago. That's were it started but it was minor then. I have recently been experiencing cold feet all the time which seems to be poor circulation. I have a pain that goes down the back of my left leg, my knee burns and my feet go numb. Both legs hurt but the left is worse. I had an ablasion and left ovary removal in 2009 from which I had steri strips left inside and had to have removed in the office. (Yes I had a horrible experience) I was also told that I had a backward uterus a few years ago. I have had low back pain for several years as well. Could the uterus be causing the leg and back pain? Could I have a tilted pelvis that could be causing this pain or do you think I have something pinching on a nerve. I am having a CT SCAN done of the abdomen in a few days. Will this show the pelvis as well?? All I know is I am tired of being in constant pain..please give me any advise..thanks!!!
Hello ma'am and welcome.
