Hi Chistiana, well I got my MRI results back and it says I def. have two cervixes and what appears to be a double womb fused together...Im still a bit confused as to whether it is didelphys or a septum. I always thought that didelphys was two seperate wombs not touching but now Ive read some people say that they have fused didelphys but others say that dosent exist and its a septum. Still to get my hysteroscopy on Thursday and praying for answers!

Hi I was diagnosed with a bicornuate uterus when I was 13 and they couldn't tell me how severe it was until I had a hysteroscopy in 2009 which they told me I had 2 complete separate uterus's and 2 complete cervix's. I am now 6 weeks and 5 days and haven't had a scan yet. Im worried about as they tell me I have an increased risk of premature labour and breach baby.

Hi, this sounds exactly like what I have. Its hard not to worry but to be honest Im reading lots of success stories, although its important that they monitor for incompetent cervix and regular scans. So many people are misdiagnosed with what type of anomaly they have. My womb must look quite heart shaped at regular scans hence saying it was bicornuate but then at my D&C they said I have didelphys, now MRI is still more or less saying didelphys/double womb but the two are fused and touching which apparently is possible. I wish you lots of luck in your pregnancy and will be intetrested to follow how you are getting on.
All along Ive been determined to get to the bottom of whether I have a septum but if the hysteroscopy results still show two seperate wombs/cavities then we are going to start ttc again and I will get progesterone, heparin blood thinning injections and aspirin to support the pregnancy.
Im a bit nervous about the hysteroscopy but its being done under general anaesthetic so I'll be out cold. They tried doing internal investigations at the consultants office but it was so painful. Good luck x

Chesmik- first of all congratulations on your pregnancy! And at least you know exactly what your uterus is like unlike a lot of other women so you know your risks. I wouldnt worry so much about the baby being breach...at the end of the day what's the worst that can happen....a c section-not that tragic. As for preterm labor i know it is a possibility and you will worry about it but on a positive note my doc had me praying to reach 27 weeks with my ds and he made it to 38w4d and was not breach! Good luck hun, it d be nice to keep in touch, we re not far in our pregnancies!

Justkeeptryin- your diagnosis sounds confusing but maybe that s just that dydelphis fused together.i think if it was a septum you wouldnt have 2 cervixes but i guess the hysterescopy will give you a final answer.dont worry about it, you wont understand a thing and even though i m not sure how things work there you ll be back home the same day being pampered by dh!!

Afm- went for another scan today, baby is doing great but bloody hematoma wont go away or even get any smaller...uuurrrgggg sometimes i hate my left side uterus!!another 9 days in bed, no x mas celebrations for me and we ll see. Only big problem is if this lood doesnt dissapear we cant put in the cerclage.

Hi Chistiana, that sucks about the haematoma..fingers crossed it goes away and you can get your cerclage in. Oh the joys of having a second non pregnant womb. They noticed a small haematoma below my last pregnancy but nothing substantial to explain the heavy bleeding I was having. thats when the realised that my lining in my non pregnant left womb was extremely thick and was trying to carry on as normal and shed like a period!
I will be so glas come Thursday to hopefully get final answers when they look inside, Im still not convinced that its a septum as apparently from MRI images its very easy to see but who knows who interpreted the results. Will keep you posted on the results, its nice to keep in touch

Yes its actually really nice talking to you,you simply describe exactly what s happening riht now...damn left side is having a period...as if having one every month is enough, we have to have one while we re pg too!!if indeed this is didelphys can you do something to open it up or do you just go by "hay it s 2 smaller ones but that will do"? I hope everything goes really well and you pg very very soon!

Apparently didelphys is good and has good outcomes. Yes the wombs are smaller but still complete wombs inside without septums thats why Ive kind of hoped all along that its that, then I can crack on with ttc again. But if its a septum its all put on hold again until it gets removed. I have no idea how long it would take to be referred.
Its weird the bleeding you've described must be a haematoma as I though that progesterone supplements would not allow you to have period bleeding. Thats what I hoped anyway, thats why I want progesterone to hopefully prevent that happening along with the anxiety!

Thanks for your support, it's nice to talk to other women who have the same issue as me.

Its concerning having these problems but I'm hoping that everything works out and I am able to carry to full term. Is there an increased risk for having an incompetent cervix with 2 separate uteri and if yes why is that?

Can they tell this in advance or only if you miscarry? I know that the issues with having a heart shaped uterus like a bicornuate is that if the embryo implants in the wrong spot it might not receive enough blood flow which causes a miscarriage, is this the same if you have 2 separate?

I havent had my first scan as I'm very early but hoping to have one in around 2 weeks so I hope I hear a heart beat and everything looks normal.

Ill keep you updated with everything and thanks for replying.
