Hi, I recently went to the doctor and was told that my uterus is to the side. I know that this is not very common. I am trying to get pregnant, is this going to affect me in anyway? Thank you.
It is not uncommon for the uterus to be slightly to one side, usually the right. This is unlikely to decrease the chances of getting pregnant. Once the pregnant uterus starts enlarging, it moves back to the middle.
