Shouldn't be: A bicornuate uterus (heart shaped) can have a septum or even a side of the uterus that doesn't connect to the cervix. If this were the case, you'd have painful cycles more often +/- abnormal bleeding. With your symptoms, i doubt the shape has anything to do with it. Continue the ocps and occasional break-through bleeding is to be expected. Twice a year is not bad.
