First, relax. You don't know for sure that sex will be painful, but if you get it into your mind that it will, then it most assuredly will! Such is the power of the mind. You have what is also known as a retroflexed uterus, or a tipped uterus.
In some women, the womb or uterus is tipped backward, pointing toward the lower back. This is known as a retroverted, tilted, or tipped uterus. Usually, the uterus sits upright, in a vertical or up-and-down position. A tilted uterus is quite common, with 20 women out of every having the condition.
Forget the tongue, the uterus is actually the most powerful muscle in the human body. We know the uterus is of primo importance for pregnancy and reproduction, but what about sex? Very few women ever think about the role that the uterus plays in their sex lives and, surprisingly, it can be a big one. In some women, the intensity of the orgasm is connected to the uterus, and sometimes people experience an orgasm from stimulation of the cervix the part of the uterus that connects to the vagina.
If you've ever been told that your uterus is tilted during an appointment at your gyno, you're not alone. In fact, about 30 percent of women have a retroverted—or tilted—uterus, says ob-gyn Mary Jane Minkin, M. Just ask your gyno during your next exam.
