Hmmm, I was under the impression that neither a bicornuate or aseptated uterus prevented pregnancy. However, a septated uterus was associated with problems carrying to term, because the septate prevented full-term growth. I was also suspected of having the same problem as I have a heart shaped uterus.

Must be very frustrating for you both. I'm glad that there's no fertilisation problem. At least the IVF has shown you that, so you at least know that your eggs are good.

I'm sending you loads of love & luck Mary-Ellen ((((((((hugz)))))))))

Hi Tracey,

I've learned that a septate uterus can and usually will prevent pg and will need corrective surgery to remove the tissue, while a bicornuate uterus should not prevent pregnancy but will have a higher risk for premature delivery and growth restriction problems. Majority of bicornuate pg's end up with c/s as they are usually breech or transverse due to the shape of the uterus. Also women with bicornuate u. also have a higher risk of developing pre-eclampsia (even higher than a women carrying a multiple pg) surprising isn't it.
I've learned a lot about the topic from the internet so I hope the sources are correct.

I find the Internet a good thing but then again, I always get more anxious and freaked out after learning all the worst case scenarios out there.

Again thanks so much for the support and warm hugs (I love them)
Wishing everyone well and lots of babydust thrown your way!

It's good to see you Mary-Ellen. Good luck with the clomid & IUI's
. I found that if I took the clomid at night before bed, I didn't suffer from the side effects too much.
