Does a Retroverted Uterus Affect Pregnancy Symptoms?

Dear Midwife,
Hi! I just want to make one question. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex a day before my ovulation and I have retroverted uterus. What changes do I have if I'm pregnant?


Pregnancy symptoms are very different for different women -- many women with normal pregnancies have no symptoms at all. Others are violently ill almost immediately. Uterus position won't affect early symptoms. The only way to know for sure whether you are pregnant is to take a test, which won't be until you miss a period.

Meanwhile, it sounds like you need effective contraception. Your privacy would be protected and if you can't afford going to a regular midwife or doctor, you might try Planned Parenthood or a community clinic where they have a sliding scale.
