Bicornuate uterus (uterus with two horns)


Hi,

I have had 3 miscarriages, in a row, in this last year. I am 33 years old and have no children. Me and my husband have had all possible blood work done and all is normal, The doctor said is my heart shape uterus but he said that he doesn't recommend surgery and said that I should just keep trying. I don't know what to do. Please help!

I have nothing to say but I've not got a bicornuate uterus...but we've been told just keep trying without any assistance. I know how frustrating it is...x..x.x.

You think IVF will help me? I don't have a problem getting pregnant at all. The issue is just holding the baby inside my uterus.

I honestly don't know. That may be something to bring up to you doc. Have you had any other testing (like genetic) to determine a cause other than the bicorinate (sp?) uterus for your mc's?

Hugs love, i'm sorry for your losses
I have another of the mullerian uterine abnormalities (didelphys)

How was your bicornuate uterus diagnosed (ultrasound, MRI, laparoscopy)?

Often they are misdiagnosed and misunderstood, even by highly trained medical professionals - if you had a septum rather than bicornuate this could explain early losses and could be relatively easily fixed with surgery. Often it is difficult to distinguish the different types of abnormalities without a laparoscopy/hysteroscopy. Correct diagnosis is key.

For more info: http://mulleriananomalies.blogspot.com/

Bicornuate uteri should not cause early pregnancy losses and women usually have normal pregnancies with slightly higher risks of breech, preterm labour and small babies.

Happy to answer any questions you have
Wishing you all the best

I agree with the earlier post. Your uterus shouldnt effect you carrying to term and ivf wont help you stay pregnant unless their are gentetic reasons for your loses and you having pgs ivf. I know it must be super frustrating but maybe keep trying for a bit longer and see what happens. I know people who have had more than three mc but went on to have healthy kids naturally.

I need some advice.


Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be a member since I've gained much knowledge and faith by reading other womens experiences and success stories. know I'm in the same situation as many other women. I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I have a bicornuate uterus. I'm worried since the doctor told me that I'm at a high risk of a miscarriage since one part of the uterus there is blood debris, yet on the other side there is a fetus with a heart beat. They had to take several ultrasounds to confirm a HB. I don't feel that my doctor is familiar with my conditon..I'm confused myself..I don't know what to ask my doctor or what other measures should I take to save my baby.
