Tilted womb

I recently underwent a pelvic examination and the doctor said that my womb was tilted. Could this interfere with me becoming pregnant?

“Tilting” of the womb does not interfere with your chances of becoming pregnant. The womb is usually tilted forward towards the front of the pelvis but occasionally it is tilted backwards towards the sacrum, which forms the lower end of the spinal column. The axis or direction of tilt does not interfere with the entry of sperm into the womb and therefore has no impact on the possibility of becoming pregnant.
