In order to provide grounds for a common understanding of the subject under discussion, I shall make some rather elementary statements.
1. The normal position of the uterus is anteverted.
2. The external os is to be found on a line drawn from the upper border of the symphysis pubis to the lower point of the sacrum (Suppey).
3. The fundus of the uterus, in the woman standing erect, touches a horizontal line drawn across the top of the symphysis.
4. The external os rests on a line drawn across the spines of the ischium.
5. At birth the external os is on a level with the innominate line, and not until puberty is its normal level reached.
6. The entire uterus is freely movable, the only partially fixed part being the cervix.
