Unicornuate uterus

Hi all, hope that today is a positive day for you all!

I have just been diagnosed with a unicornuate uterus- my womb is only half the size it should be and I only have one Fallopian tube. Been trying over 2 years, they're giving us another 3-6 months before beginning ivf. Feeling very daunted and scared about everything right now. Anyone else have a womb abnormality or can shed some light on what the next stage of the process is? Thank you all xx

Hello I'm sorry I don't know anything about this but I hope you will get your bfp soon. Why do they want you to keep trying naturally when they would usually refer after two years max? Surely if you have a condition it would make sense to refer you now? Or do they think that your condition makes it less likely you'd conceive quickly naturally but likely that you will if you keep trying for a while? Do you use he ovulation monitors to ensure you are baby dancing at the right times of the month? Xx

Thank you. I'm not sure, I had a laparoscopy after being referred to the infertility clinic and he surgeon has recommended this as the next course of action. Possibly? Yes I do actually, I have heard that laparoscopys can improve our chances if conceiving after so maybe they've factored this in too? Thanks for your response xx

Hi Rachelwithers. This is unfortunate, but if you think that a "normal" womb can stretch to accommodate twins, then a unicornuate one should happily stretch to accommodate one baby. You may have 2 ovaries to use too, which is a bonus. If you don't manage to get pregnant naturally, then maybe request a hysteroscopy (womb x-ray), if not already done, so they have a "map" of the interior. Wishing you success. Diane
