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.

Inflammation: Iuds work by causing inflammation in the lining of the uterus, thereby preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg (embryo). Inflammation can also cause scaring.

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

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

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

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. 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. ...Read more
