Recommend : A discussion with your gynecologist...It can significantly complicate pregnancy in some cases depending on severity.

Depends: If you have a true "heart shape uterus" also called "arcuate" then there is no increase risk. If you have a small septum in the uterus it can increase the risk of miscarriage.
