Uterine Division: During embryonic development, the uterus forms as 2 tubes fuse together. The area where they join is supposed to go away and leave an empty uterine cavity. Sometimes this doesn't happen normally and the uterus is divided into two sides. There are many ways this can happen. There can be a right and left uterus (bicornuate) or just a partial division down the middle of the uterus (septum). ...Read more
What are the indications,signs of a tilted uterus and how can it be corrected? Does ultrasound shows when uterus is tilted?
A uterine "tilt": is relatively common, and usually of no significance.. A tilted uterus per se is not an abnormal situation, but a normal anatomic variation.

Endometriosis is associated with infertility and may also cause the uterus to be retroverted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Low Bishop Score: As you get close to full term pregnancy, the cervix is assessed for 5 factors: dilation, effacement, firmness, position, and fetal station. Each factor gets scored, and the 5 are added together. 10 or better is considered favorable, and a patient has a very high chance of responding to oxytocin as an induction agent. Conservatively speaking, therefore, <10 is unfavorable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
