Retroverted uterus is seen in 10% of normal women population. But considering the fact that you had an anteverted uterus previously which later became retroverted following a surgical removal of ovarian cyst, I suspect possibility of adhesions in the right ovarian (adnexal) area leading to mechanical pulling of uterus backwards and there by resulting in retroversion. If you have pain during intercourse, it may be related to such adhesions and retroversion. You need to rule out pelvic infection and retroversion secondary to it. You need a hysterosalpingogram and/or laparoscopic tubal assessment to look for any tubal kinks or blocks if you are considering pregnancy.

Wishing you best!

Hello. Welcome to hcm
Retroverted uterus is common finding in many normal females. It is normal and there is nothing to worry about it. Very rarely, it may complicate a pregnancy but regular follow with physician will help. It has no medical complications either. During pregnancy, when the fetus grows, uterus enlarges and there wil no retro version of uterus.
Pain killers are safe when prescribed by a doctor and for a patient post surgery. There wont be any problem for conception too nor for pregnancy unless complicated by other conditions.
All the best
