What Is A Deviated Uterus
I have a Arcuate uterus - retroverted and deviated to the left, will this make it difficult for me to carry a baby to term? I am starting IVF soon.
Sometimes: There are many different types of deviated uteri, some have little effect on pregnancy and others make conception difficult, and can cause increased risk for complications should a pregnancy occur. I've delivered a lot of women with bicornuate uterus, didelphyus uterus. Septate uteri often need to be surgically repaired in order for pregnancy to occur.
My daughter is 17 weeks pregnant. She was told she has a deviated uterus and this may be her last child. Is the current pregnancy at risk?
No?: Most of us don't have perfectly straight uteruses. The uterus grows with the baby. Sounds like a knife-happy surgeon, to me!
For the past 6 days I have had chronic pelvic pain, nausea, back pain, and spotting. Went to the dr, said I had deviated uterus. Ideas of what causing?
No: Definitely not. Just this year there have been a small number (less than 10) of experimental surgeries transplanting a uterus that seem to have "worked" - the transplant is not yet rejected. It's still way too early to know whether pregnancy would be possible, and it's definitely 100% experiment at this point.See 1 more doctor answer
It means fibroids: Fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the muscular layer of the uterus. They are hormonally driven and can grow in size and cause problems for many women. They can cause pelvic pain, urinary symptoms, and constipation if a large enough size. They can also cause abnormal bleeding and heavy periods. They can also be found incidentally and cause no symptoms or problems.
Lining of uterus: When the lining of your uterus is thick it means that either you are in the last phase of your menstrual cycle or also it can be due to pregnancy. However, medical conditions of the uterus can also resemble a thick endometrium, like endometrial hyperplasia (pre -malginancy) endometrial polyps, or uterine fibroids.
Yep!: Uteri come in all sizes, shapes, and configurations. They can be tipped forward, backward or sideways and/or can be bent forward, backward, or sideways. These variations in normal usually do not affect fertility. To take this a step further, there could be a uterus with two heads or two cervixes. Not to worry - follow the usual rules about infertility (no baby after 1 year of unprotected sex).
No: At 4 weeks pregnancy the embryo is about the size of a pin head.
