    Default Unicornate uterus

    HI,
    im new to these forums. Yesterday i found out i have a unicornate uterus. Im still trying to come to term with is and am wondering if anyone else in this situatuation has got pregnant and had a baby successfuly. Weve been ttc for 9months now and decided to go gp before the 12 months ttc as im 34 and dh is 38 already and i was just getting anxious each month. Ive read that this condition is prone to misscarriage and not carrying a baby to term. Im feeling very confused and sad now. Id love to hear from someone in same situation.

    Default Unicornate uterus

    Hi, I have a bicornate uterus. I'm not sure if it's the same thing or not but I'm happy to give you our experience if you like.

    I'm sorry to hear you've been ttc for 9 months. It's so tough when it doesn't happen when you'd like.

    A friend of a friend has this condition and despite thinking she'd never fall pregnant, she did (naturally too - so you can imagine her shock) and carried her healthy daughter to term. I'm not sure how she delivered though. All the best for your journey, I wouldn't give up hope! X

    Wow thats great to hear a positive story. Ive read some negative things which doesnt help, so it nice to know it can happen. Do you know how long she had been trying? I have a specialist appointment in 3 weeks and i think they will probably reccomend some sort of IVF or IUI which i never thought it would come to.

    Hi i think bicornuate is slightly different as i only have the one fallopian tube and i guess essentially half a uterus. Did you have to do IVF to conceive due to your uterus?

    @Luckybaby I would have your specialist sit down and clearly explain the exact details of your uterus and it's size, my understanding is that these uterus' are larger than normal. I was diagnosed with a bicornuate uterus and told pregnancy and giving birth would be difficult. I couldn't give birth naturally and my babies would be very premmie, if I could have them. Later I found out I have a subseptate uterus. Yes, we've had a lot of miscarriages but I've have 4 children, 1 natural birth and 3 c/s (for other medical reasons).

    thanks @BabyG4 is there anything else i should ask the specialist? Did you have your childern through IVF? Whats scans did you have done for them to diagnose your subseptate uterus? I was diagnosed by 3d ultrasounds but feel the specialist might send me for an hsg for further information?

    I would be asking about the 1 tube, usually you still have 2 but there may be another reason for only 1. Likelihood of conceiving naturally, will the uterus cause issues or the 1 tube. Should you be trying other methods to conceive prior to IVF. That's just my thoughts.
    My uterus was diagnosed 15 years ago, prior to 3D ultrasounds (well I don't think they were around), I had a laparoscopy to get my diagnosis. At normal ultrasounds during early pregnancy, they can see the septum coming down but the baby does push this over as it grows. I personally, never had any trouble conceiving naturally, IVF hasn't been needed however DH and I have had 12 miscarriages and our girls were on the smaller side, not tiny but all around 45cm long and 6 pound at birth. My OB puts the size down to the uterus.
