Wondering too: It can require extra expense & effort. Tubes can be untied but may not work as well as they did. The ablations also make it unlikely you can carry a pregnancy.A simpler method is to have a fertility center harvest your eggs & fertilize them with dad's sperm & insert the new embryo into a surrogate you hire to carry the baby. ...Read more

It: It used to be thought that a bicornuate (bifurcate) uterus was associated with infertility but recent studies have not confirmed this, and patients with bicornuate uterus can get pregnant. However, a bicornuate uterus is considered high-risk, and you will need to see a high-risk perinatologist (high risk ob) for your pregnancy. There is an increased association with miscarriage, and preterm birth, so it is important for you to establish with a well-qualified high-risk doctor for your pregnancy. ...Read more
