bicornuate uterus
1 Replies
Carroll 3509 - October 11

I have just been diagnosed with a bicornuate uterus and I am 8 weeks pregnant after IVF. The bicornuate did not appear to anyone until after I got pregnant and had some bleeding from one of the horns. Thankfully, it is not bleeding from the left horn where the fetus has implanted.

What does this mean for my pregnancy? I've read that I have an increased chance for miscarriage and congential anomolies.

Do I need to follow up with a maternal/fetal specialist when my fertility center discharges me next week, or is this something my regular OB/GYN can handle?

If it is truly a bicornuate uterus, as opposed to a septate uterus, you have an increased risk of premature delivery with an abnormal [resentation of the fetus. You may require a C-section. Uterine septum is associated with a very high risk of miscarriage.
Good luck.
