In no civilized country in the world to do such a pause is not recommended.

3. The diagnosis of "tilted uterus" (the position deviation from the norm). There is no such diagnosis of "tilted uterus"! The angle of the uterus anteriorly or posteriorly is nothing more than a variant of normal and does not affect the possibility of pregnancy, and is not required for this specific POS, as some claim doctors.

4. The presence of the smallest bacteria Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma require treatment. The vast majority of cases, diagnosis and treatment of Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma are not needed! These microorganisms are normal can exist in the genital tract of men and women without causing any diseases, and if they are calling only under certain conditions.
