Can a tilted cervix reduce the chances of getting pregnant?

Answers from Elizabeth Stewart, M.D.

A tilted cervix isn't likely to create problems with fertility. Likewise, a tilted cervix isn't likely to make pregnancy more difficult.

The cervix is the neck of the uterus. A tilted cervix is most likely an extension of a tipped uterus, which simply means that the uterus is tipped toward the back of the pelvis rather than the front of the pelvis.

In a few cases, the angle at which the uterus and cervix meet can make certain assisted reproductive procedures — such as intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization — more challenging.
