What are the effects of uterus didelphys on pregnancy?

Preterm labor: Uterine didelphys is a term used to describe a uterus that has developed into a "heart-shaped" or "walled" cavity with a mid-line division.

Is a didelphys uterus pregnacy considered a high risk pregnacy im 26 year old smoker with a double uterus and 4 months pregnant

Is a didelphys uterus pregnacy considered a high risk pregnacy im 26 year old smoker with a double uterus and 4 months pregnant

Hello.: Hello. I would ask your doctor if s/he is currently classing you as high risk. Having a double uterus (uterus didelphys) does not necessarily mean that you will need special treatment to have a normal pregnancy and delivery. There can be a lot of variability in this condition. However, your doctor will probably want to follow you somewhat closely to ensure that you don't go into pre-term labor. If one of the uteruses is very small and that is where the embryo implanted or if that cervix is poorly developed this can increase the risk for miscarriage and preterm labor. In some cases there can be an increased risk for a breach delivery. One thing you can do to help your fetus is to stop smoking. Take care. ...Read more

My pregnancy is 25+4 days and my uterus length is 28 CM is it a problem, does it affect parturition. My weight now is 62.6 kg?

Relax.: Size-dates discrepancy usually means erroneous dates, not fetal growth aberration. Ask your obstetrician to schedule a prenatal ultrasound for assessment of fetal growth and amniotic fluid volume. Other possibilities include uterine fibroids or poor fundal height measurement (common). It is too early to predict how your labor will fare, however if the fetus is indeed large, check for diabetes! ...Read more
