retroverted uterus and slightly fixed!!!!!!!!!!! help!!

just got my letter from gynae with the finding of the pelvic exam am also awaiting a laparoscopy. she has wrong examination today was unremarkable apart from a very tender retroverted and slightly fixed uterus ?????????what does this mean can it be like this without endo????

I'm still doubting whether to go for the lap as the one 3 years ago was clear of endo

A tilted uterus can be genetic or in some cases it can be a sign of adhesions which can be caused by endo. Mine was tilted and it showed nothing else but when I had a lap I had mild to moderate endo so it was fairly substantial. Internal ultrasounds generally don't show endo or adhesions so a clear scan doesn't mean much apart from you know you don't have any cysts which is a good thing.


Have you ever had pelvic exams before this one? If so, it may be important to find out if it was retroverted then and establish whether there has been a change


yer only when I got my smear, and another gynae, and ultrasound but what does she mean slightly fixed? I've never been told that before xx
