Causes Of 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

Maybe: Since I haven't seen the HSG denoting the didelphys, I cannot tell if this is a complete malformation or the uterus on one side is reasonably normal and capable of containing a pregnancy or not.

What are the chances of having twins when having double uterus? Is it even possible to have twins with uterus didelphys?
Yes and yes: Having a uterine didelphys, to my knowledge, doesn't increase your chance of having twins. In order to have the most common type of twins, fraternal, your ovary has to release 2 eggs, so twins more dependent on ovary than on uterus.
