what causes a bicornuate uterus ?

Embryologic variatio

Pregnant
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.

Dr. Douglas Lawson answered:

Docs can you explain what is a bicornuate uterus and its cons?

Bicornuate uterus

Cavity
During development the uterus starts as two horns that come together and eventually form one cavity. If this doesn't happen completely you can have a bicornuate uterus. Many women have no issues with this, but it can increase miscarriage rates and if one horn is small (rudimentary), it can increase pregnancy complications as well.

Dr. Serena H. Chen answered:

Is there an association between infertility and a bicornuate uterus?

Not really

Uterus
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.

Depends...

Bicornuate uteri can potentially make a surgical abortion more difficult. Whenever a uterus does not have normal anatomy an ultrasound is usually used to help complete the procedure safely.

What is the probability of a woman with a bicornuate uterus conceiving on both sides?

It's possible

Women
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. At age 48, there are additional risks if you conceive and you should be counselled and followed carefully, if it is you and not a family member.

Can Bicornuate uterus be a reason for irregular shaped gestational sac if hcg and yolk are good?

A bicornuate

Reproductive_organs-womb
Uterus can have different degrees. I do not think that this should affect the shape of the sac. In fact, if there is a yolk sac and the BHCG is going up I would trynot to worry too much about sac shape. Not much u can do anyway and those ultrasound bills can add up. Gd luc.
