Rare 2 remove 1 side: A true 'double uterus' is a uterine didelphys with two uteri, each with its own tube, and two cervices. This does not need surgery. If you are getting pain you need to be evaluated by a specialist, looking for a noncommunicating horn, where part of the uterus has nowhere for the menstrual blood to drain out (hematometra), endometriosis, or a vaginal septum with hematocolpos (blood in the vagina). ...Read more

Doc says I have septum/unicorn uterus and there is a 99% chance I can't give birth vaginally. (Had 1 csection already)  what does this mean?

Bicornuate uterus: Women with unicornate uterus cannot carry a pregnancy to term, I assume you are talking about "Bicornuate or septate uterus" since you already went through one pregnancy. Bicornuate uterus has 2 cavities and in a septate uterus, your uterine cavity is divided by a septum, these can be differentiated by imaging studies like MRI. Some women deliver vaginally, please discuss with your OBGyn. ...Read more

Mri can tell. The surgery is operative hysteroscopy and is usually performed by a reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist (rei).

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

Septum: There is no such thing as a double uterine septum, period - so you don't have that. Do you have a septum? You need an hsg, or a hysteroscopy (or in some cases an mri) to say whether you have one or not, there is no way at all to guess online whether you have one. Septum is the most frequent of the congenital uterine anomalies. ...Read more
