    Default Septate uterus - uterus needs reshaping

    Anyone have a mercedes benz uterus. It is a version of a subseptate uterus.
    Very difficult to find stuff on google. Lots of ther shapes!
    I was always told it was not quite normal but shouldnt be a problem
    Late last year started at new ivf clinc and they keep brnging it up. Gave me full brief on it. Believe if no implantation in 2 rounds should operate to change shape.
    Next cycle am paying for Vitrolife to assist with implant chances.

    Love to hear from anyone who has this .... or has had uterus reshaped.

    Hello, no sorry I have no heard of that type of uterus. I myself are going through something similar as I have a double uterus but mine is fused together and is causing me to mc as only half of each uterus has good blood supply and the other half doesn't due to bring fused together so the placenta dies off.

    I am about to have the diving wall removed in April, this type of surgery has only been done a handful of times in the world with someone with my condition which scares me too death.

    When I found out about my condition no one had any info on it and I has to try so hard to find anything,most drs don't even know what my condition is.

    Sorry to hear of your mcs. I have been reading on uterus abnormalities... but obviously need to resit with fs next visit and have more junior science lesson. I just dont get enough about it.

    I can understand why you are opting for the op.
    I need to enquire more as to rates and odds, as having now come home and researching the percentages of live births is surprising and terrifying.

    Where are you having the surgery if you dont mind me asking? Is it classedas elective, in the sense of is it covered by medicare?

    I wish you every success and would be very interested in following your journey.

    Yes .... i feel in the last few months its one BIG awful discovery after another... or another little hurdle thrown at me....
    Fs said its possible it could be an issue... but we'll try a few times if unsuccessful implant might have to operate. This thakes time and money .... now starting to think i need to get onto this and if need stop ivf and operate now.

    Weve only restarted ivf again after years of break. This uterus issue was played down by my old fs as if it was no worries and nothing to worry about before.
    New clnic and Now at 36, ive been told egg reserve is low, quality low and the new fs has mentioned uterus each visit but now this ontop of all that i think.... god no wonder we never fell during our 8 yrs trying even when my eggs were good.

    Would you be kind enough to post any links you find... ive googled my heart out.

    Next appt in 2 weeks so will push for thorough science lesson then!

    Atm my surgery is going to possibility cost me 4k if my health cover rule it a pregnancy related surgery because my 12 month waiting period ends November but if they class it as a gyno related surgery they will pay. Im not sure what medicare will be paying for ect.

    Im having my surgery at ashford hospital in Adelaide. This is such a rare surgery I will go into the medical journal once ive had a baby as then the surgery will be deemed successfully.

    I will try look for some information for you as im quite interested as to what yoyr condition is.

    I really cant find anything on your uterus. Are you sure its spelt differently? I will ask my specialist about it when I see him in april.

    The only article i can find is a document by john yovich director at pivet ivf.
    He apparently named it. Hes a pioneer in ivf in wa. I have my fs sending me some specifics.

    Its basically the shape of the merc benz emblem.... thats where its name comes from. Its septate. I know when you google its all car stuff.

    How are you going everything inplace for your op? What sort of recovery time will you have? What sort of odds on success?

    Not much help, but your health fund should cover the surgery. Its not classified as pregnancy unless you are actually pregnant. Good luck.

    Hi its glitter here I changed my name. I have to have a catheter so the balloon will separate the walls so they wont heal onto each other. I keep it in for 7 days and take estrogen to grow the endo lining then we will remove the balloon. I can probably start trying after my first af hopefully.

    Health fund rejected the claim so I have to pay $4600 outa my own pocket. It would have been 8k if I wanted them to look for endo ect but my last check was ok last year so I think im.just going to go with the septum removal
