I have been having investigations for mid cycle bleeding/bleeding after sex. Today I had an ultrasound and the doctor told me I had a bicornate womb. He said it is partially divided. Can anyone tell me what this means?
We've been trying to conceive for nearly 2 years following a miscarriage at 9 weeks in September 2007 which was my first and only pregnancy. Does anyone know how this will impact things for us? Feel really upset.
My sister has one. It's a structural defect from birth, there are different levels aswell, some are in two halves, split down the centre. I think my sister's is heart shaped. She did have three miscarriages but she has fibroids aswell. She has a lovely toddler now though. The uterus is designed to stretch in pregnancy so I don't think this is normally a problem.
My cousin has one, in fact she has a septate uterus. She had corrective surgery two years ago, and she now has a delightful 3 month old DS.
As others have said it depends very much on what degree you have - my cousin had 6 MCs before it was discovered and corrected, but hers was very severe and she also has PCOS. She has met women with a bicornate uterus who have had no real problems whatsoever.
