Introduction to Unicornuate Uterus


This web page is dedicated to the uterine anomaly unicornuate uterus. I put this web page together because I have this anomaly and I have found there is very little information on this condition. Although is it similar to the bicornuate uterus, which is unfortunately much more common, they are totally different in that research for one does not encompass the other. As of this date there are over two dozen of us with this same condition. Some of them have children, some have had miscarriages, some have lost their babies and some of them went into pre-term labor. All of us have gone through some ordeal to get pregnant and that is usually when we have found out about our rare condition. There is, however, hope for all of us to one day to become a parent. Just knowing that I was not alone was an enormous comfort.

I have e-mailed other women who have this condition and asked them for their own story. Even though we all have the same anomaly our situations and conditions are different. Besides Our Stories, I have included articles (check the links below) that I have found on unicornuate uterus. If any one knows of any other sources please let me know. All of the articles have been used without permission from the authors. If you want full reprints I have put the addresses where you can obtain them. My best to all of you who have this anomaly. The best suggestion I have is to find a doctor who understands your condition, is willing to listen, and for pregnancy purposes, treat you like the high risk patient you are. Even though I went full term no one knew if that would be possible. Everything worked out in the end but it took a lot of prenatal care on my part, my husband, as well as my doctors.

All the best ,

Barbara
