24wks pg. At last sono I noticed that from my the baby in uterus to my short, .4cm cervix was a large v-shaped void of nothing. Is this "funneling"?
Hard to say: An experienced perinatologist would always want to see images or to at least know the sonographer or sonologist who did the ultrasound study. Therefore, we cannot provide an answer for you here. However, if you are already considered high risk due to short cervix and/or history of preterm labor or birth, you are probably in the care of OB or mfm (maternal-fetal medicine) and could contact them. ...Read more
What can I do if my sister has a heart shaped uterus and one ovary. How likely is it that I have it too?
Does a heart shaped uterus give bigger risks, of chances of miscarriages I've had 2 already and my uterus is not completely in half.?
Yes.: Arcuate or heart-shaped uterus (as any other mullerian anomaly: bicornuate, didelphic, septate, unicornuate) increase the risk of infertility and miscarriage should pregnancy occur, as well as previa, accreta, preterm birth, cesarean section and uterine rupture. Seek ob/gyn care, take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and good luck! ...Read more
I m 19 wk pregnant after ICSI, my dr think i hve slightly t-shaped uterus but she is NT sure, is dis still to worry while in 19 wk?on which week this can cause problem for me?any remedy?
See specialist: Consider seeing an MFM (maternal fetal medicine) specialist. They can take more detailed look via ultrasound and make recommendations if they think you are at risk for preterm labor. After delivery and postpartum period, consider a hysterosalpingogram (x-ray study of uterus and tubes) or MRI. Your reproductive specialist can schedule these. Ask your OB to get records from your infertility dr. ...Read more
I was told I have a heart shaped uterus instead of pear. Will that cause any problems if i want to have a baby ?
Depends: If you have a true "heart shape uterus" also called "arcuate" then there is no increase risk. If you have a small septum in the uterus it can increase the risk of miscarriage. ...Read more
I was told that because I have a heart shaped uterus, i can't deliver vaginally. Is this true? My baby was head down & everything, too. Thanks.
Usually ok : Most uterine anomalies still allow vaginal delivery especially if the baby is head down. Ask for an explanation from your doctor. Perhaps there were other reasons. ...Read more

I have a t-shaped uterus & use mirena (levonorgestrel). I also have a small fibroid. Should i be worried about removal considering the narrowness of my uterus?
I have a heart shaped uterus, the doctors said it's going to be really hard to get pregnant, maybe impossible, is this true?
Not necessarily: A bicornuate uterus or septated uterus can indeed appear "heart-shaped" but I have many patients who conceive normally & only discover the uterine anomaly at c-section or other surgery. You have a higher chance of a breech presentation at delivery (less room for the infant to turn) or preterm labor for the same reason. No reason to worry unless you have a large septum. Please discuss with an ob. ...Read more
Usu. not a problem: As the daughter of a woman with a "heart-shaped" uterus and, al,so having a "heart-shaped" uterus, being the mother of a daughter, I can say that this caused no problems with conception. It may result in breech positioning of the fetus. The medical name for this shape is bicornuate. There are likely degrees of shape and size that may influence things, so discuss your own shape with your doc. ...Read more
I have a heart shaped uterus, can this cause irregular bleedings? Im on the pill and this happens like 2 times a year
Shouldn't be: A bicornuate uterus (heart shaped) can have a septum or even a side of the uterus that doesn't connect to the cervix. If this were the case, you'd have painful cycles more often +/- abnormal bleeding. With your symptoms, i doubt the shape has anything to do with it. Continue the ocps and occasional break-through bleeding is to be expected. Twice a year is not bad. ...Read more
A bicornuate: 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. ...Read more
If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?
Probably not: A fibroid's effect on fertility is a long standing debate in gynecology. This is a relatively small fibroid and unless it is impinging and/or protruding into the uterine cavity, it will probably not effect a pregnancy. Pregnancy will, however, usually lead to increase in size of the fibroid due to the rise in estrogen that occurs. Fibroids respond to elevation in estrogen levels by growing. ...Read more

32weeks pregnant with a heart shaped uterus and having lower back cramping along with pressure in pelvic area. Could the baby have dropped?
Hcg level on 4/14 was 1299 & on 4/16 is 1288. Transvaginal ultrasound on 4/14 showed an irregularly shaped fluid collection in my uterus. Miscarriage?
When i do sit ups, i can feel a pear-shaped,hard bulge between my pelvic bones and lower abdomen. Is this my uterus? If so , why is it so high up?
Doctor can evaluate: If a woman is slim, a bulge should be easy for the doctor to find. So, one should see the doctor and demonstrate how the bulge appears. Normally, unless pregnant, there isn't a big uterus popping out of the pelvis into the lower abdomen (although that can happen in cases of big fibroids or other abdominal/pelvic masses). ...Read more

Told years ago i had retroverted uterus, u/s confirmed.Then two years ago u/s said anteverted and then one year ago said retroverted again! how?
"Lost in space": The uterus is supported by ligaments that allow it to be moveable in space and not fixed in a certain position forever. That is the "flip side" of your question. ...Read more
U/s report said i had a retroverted uterus. Three months later, u/s said it was anteverted and then 6 month later u/s report said retroverted?Why?
May depend on how:
Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into.
Also, were both us examinations the same? Transvaginal would have an empty bladder and transabdominal a full bladder.
Finally, having stool in the rectum and sigmoid colon would displace the uterus upwards and forward. ...Read more
