Cochleate Uterus

Hi everyone. I would like to ask people though what they know about the term "Cochleate Uterus". I was diagnosed with this condition after a hysteroscopy. There is v. little on the web about it...all I have found is "a small adult uterus with a conical cervix and a body that is small, globular, and acutely flexed". I was also told I have a very narrow cervix (was v. hard to for them to do the hysteroscopy) I would like to know if it means the uterus is tipped backwards. I have symptoms including deep dyspareunia (pain during deep sex), v. hard to have cervical smear tests & horrendous period pain which has warranted 999 emergency call recently. I would like to know if people think the cochleate uterus could be cause of the dyspareunia & period pain, I have read about "collision dyspareunia" & this seems to fit the former.
Any help MUCH appreciated!
