What Shape is Your Uterus?


If you have experienced multiple miscarriages, the shape of your uterus may be to blame.  Although it is not common, it is possible that you may have what is called a septate uterus. This happens when a wall of tissue that gets in between and separates the two sides of the uterus. Because this tissue doesn't have a healthy blood flow the nutrients are not readily available and that can keep the egg from successfully implanting and maturing. 

And unfortunately even if women with this unique uterus are able to become pregnant, they are at an increased risk of miscarriage and preterm labor. 

To determine if you have a septate uterus, doctors will usually suggest an ultrasound, hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or a hysteroscopy.  If your doctor diagnoses you with a spetate uterus, surgery is usually the recommended course of action.

If there seems to be absolutely no explanation for your multiple miscarriages, you may want to ask your doctor to check the shape of your uterus.

Here's hoping for a fertile friendly uterus!
