Version - flexion of uterus

Case contributed by Dr Ayla Al Kabbani

Version indicates the relation between the uterus and vagina in the sagittal plane.

Flexion indicates the relation between the uterine body and cervix in the sagittal plane.

The most common position of the uterus is anteverted (cervix angles forward) and anteflexed (body is flexed forward). However, the position of the uterus in the adult is liable to considerable variation.
