A 34-year-old female asked:

can a pregnancy be successful with a bicornate uterus that contains a fetus on one side and an iud on the other?

Depends: It would be very hard to tell in advance what would happen. Often the iud is removed and some pregnancies will miscarry others will go to term. Certainly it is possible to survive but not likely.

Maybe: If the iud is definitely in the other side, it should be able to be removed without consequence to the fetus in the other side. If the iud is the paragard, it would likely have less effect on a pregnancy if it stayed in place than the mirena (levonorgestrel)because of the hormonal actions of mirena (levonorgestrel).
