I have just been diagnosed with anteverted bulky uterus, anterior intramural, posterior intramural, fundal subserous & fundal pedunculated fibroid?

Are you symptomatic?: Sounds like you had pelvic us and reported the location of certain fibroids in the uterus. 3 locations: submucosal (central, against the uterine lining), intramural (in the muscular middle), and subserosal (outer, on the edge). Anterior (front) posterior(back). Fundal is top of the uterus. Pedunculated means it's on a stalk (but this term is often used to describe any fibroid away from uterus). ...Read more

Can anterior subserous fibroid affect pregnancy?

Can anterior subserous fibroid affect pregnancy?

Yes: This depends on fibroid size and location and especially if the fibroid extends or protrudes into the uterine cavity. Fibroids respond to estrogen (high in pregnancy) by increasing in size. They may revert to normal size after pregnancy. They can also interfere with normal labor. Most obstetricians measure them with ultrasound monthly or so during pregnancy. ...Read more

What is uterus didelphys?

What is uterus didelphys?

Double Uterus: In a female fetus, the uterus starts out as two small tubes. As the fetus develops, the tubes normally join to create one larger, hollow organ — the uterus. Sometimes, however, the tubes don't join completely. Instead, each one develops into a separate structure. This condition is called double uterus (uterus didelphys). Treatment is needed only if a double uterus causes symptoms or complications. ...Read more

Fibroid uterus: You're describing a medium size fibroid which may or may not need anything done. It depends entirely on whether it's causing any symptoms or not. About 50% of women have fibroids and most don't know it. Usually they cause no trouble at all. But sometimes they can cause abnormal bleeding, various pain, trouble getting pregnant, etc. ...Read more

What is a septate/bicornuate uterus?

Uterine Division: During embryonic development, the uterus forms as 2 tubes fuse together. The area where they join is supposed to go away and leave an empty uterine cavity. Sometimes this doesn't happen normally and the uterus is divided into two sides. There are many ways this can happen. There can be a right and left uterus (bicornuate) or just a partial division down the middle of the uterus (septum). ...Read more

Depends: If you have a fibroid that alters the region where the fetus implants, it can affect pregnancy. The gold standard for treatement, at this point, is myomectomy (if the fibroid affects your pregnancy. Subserosal fibroids may not affect you, but you need to talk with your doctor, and bring them the images so they can see how the uterus is affected. ...Read more

A lap myomectomy (removd 3*3cm size-submucos, intramuralfibroids) affect my future pregnancy? I miscaried due to fibroid at 6th month.

A lap myomectomy (removd 3*3cm size-submucos, intramuralfibroids) affect my future pregnancy? I miscaried due to fibroid at 6th month.

Hopefully not: Removal of the fibroid will hopefully allow you to have a normal pregnancy, although you may need a caesarean section depending on the extent of the surgery. Your next pregnancy(s) will need to be monitored closely. Hopefully all the fibroids were removed as they tend to grow in pregnancy and may cause problems. Talk to your dr about these concerns. ...Read more

What causes a bicornuate uterus ?

What causes a bicornuate uterus
?

Embryologic variatio: Formation of organ systems of the embryo complete by end of third month; at a critical point, male or female sex organs differentiate. The mullerian ducts will resorb entirely in the male, and form the uterus in female. But top of these ducts may not fuse and become double-headed (bicorneate). In young women this is often not known until pregnant, and they would be considered high risk for probs. ...Read more

I had bucornuate miscarriage on april 29, 2013..Since then we are trying but no result, is bicornuate is hurdle in conceiving? What should do to conceiv

Yes: Pregnancy is more difficult with a bicornuate uterus and often when one does successfully conceive the fetus can not grow in the smaller uterine horn. There are many options including seeing a gynecologist, considering surgical removal or repair of one uterine horn, and intrauterine insemination with careful monitoring by a maternal fetal medicine specialist. ...Read more

Why did my dr tell me i might be a candidate to have a septum removed when they diagnosed me with a bicornuate uterus?

Big difference: There is a big difference between a septum and a bicornuate uterus. . A septum is a divider of your uterus but the outside of the uterus is normal. It can be excised. But, i would need to know how deep does the septum go down. If it is a little it might not be warranted. A consult with a reproductive endocrinologist might clarify the question. ...Read more

It's possible: If you conceive and have twins, one in each side (horn) of the bicornuate uterus, you should consult a physician specializing in high risk obstetrics, a field known as maternal fetal medicine or perinatology.

Is there an association between infertility and a bicornuate uterus?

Not really: A bicornuate uterus can increase your risk for preterm delivery, but is usually not associated with infertility. The problem is that this is often misdiagnosed and confused with a septate uterus which can increase the risk for miscarriage. It is important to see a specialist - a board certified or eligible reproductive endocrinologist to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

My 14 year old daughter just found out she has a bicornuate uterus. Will it cave in more over time?

Double horn: The bicornuate uterus is one of several possible defects in the normal formation of the uterus. Simply stated, a normal vagina is attached to a uterus with 2 chambers (r/l) with a silhouette more like a heart than the normal pear shape. The central division maintains the same proportions as the rest of the structure with growth. Some can have normal pregnancies in either horn, some do not. ...Read more
