Anyone have surgery to correct a uterine malformation (bicornuate or heart shaped)?

    Hello All.

    I was recently diagnosed with a uterine septum (also known as a heart shaped uterus). My doctor indicated this could be the cause of my recurrent miscarriages. I guess problems arise when an embryo attaches to the septum as blood flow is not as plentiful as it is on the rest of the uterus. He suggested what he called a relatively simple procedure to correct and remove the septum. Apparently it's similar to a D&C where they'll go in with a scope and basically snip the septum away. I'll be down for one cycle but can start ttc with the next one.

    I would love to hear from anyone who had this surgery and what your results have been. I'm doing my research on the web but it's always so nice to hear from someone who has been through it.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post.
