Is there a certain position to try, having a "tipped" uterus, that might increase my chance of conception?

Tilted Uterus and Conception

Women with a tilted uterus are often under the impression that because of the tilting, it may be harder to conceive a baby.

Fortunately, having a tilted a uterus does not impede on a woman's chances to conceive a baby. A man's sperm must make its way through a woman's uterus regardless of the way the uterus is positioned. The woman's cervical mucus, how the man's sperm swims and the amount of sperm are all factors in conceiving, but the position of the uterus is not.

If you are having trouble conceiving, it is best to check with your physician. It is also important to remember that when a couple is trying to conceive your lifestyle must be healthy.

If you smoke or your partner smokes, try quitting. Smoking can lower your ability to conceive. Make sure to eat a healthy diet, take prenatal vitamins, and exercise. The most important thing to remember is that you should get to know your menstrual cycle, this can help pinpoint ovulation and increase conception chances.

the doctors told me my cervix was tilted so my husband would hold my legs up after intercourse, or he would stand up while i layed down while we were having intercourse and hold my legs in the air. Can't say if it worked but ie ended up pregnant like a month later. Good luck
