Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

Tiggerbuddy, I had an intrauterine septum...it was not didelphys septum. I have never heard of that term before. Sorry.

Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

My understanding of a didelphic uterus is that there are actually two uteri, and it is inoperable. Pregnancy is possible, but there is a higher chance of miscarriage or pre-term delivery. I believe the only way to 100% identify a didelphic uterus, and a bicornate uterus (which are pretty similar) is by viewing the outside of the uterus via a laparoscopy. When I went in to have my septum removed, my RE said she would have to stop the procedure if the laparoscopy revealed that I had "bunny ears" for a uterus.

Go to the March of Dimes Share pages, and search for didelphic uterus. I know there are a few entries there. Also, do an internet search on didelphic uterus. There is info available, but a lot of it is written very technically.

Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

It sounds to me like didelphyc uterus is where the entire inside and outside is divided into two? Is that right? With my intrauterine spetum, the outside shape was normal. It was the inside tissue that was divided like a "V". When the septum was cut away, I was told that basically the cavity opens up inside like a normal uterus. Does that make sense to you all? Anyway, I just thought I'd throw that in if it helps define the difference between intrauterine septum and didelphys septum. If I am wrong in my understanding, please forgive me.

Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

Hello everyone!! I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on my situation. I had an uterine septum and had it removed on July 12th and a balloon (so to speak) was inserted and inflated with saline so that the lining of my uterus would grow back correctly. Anyway, I went back to the dr on Aug. 6th and had the balloon removed and everything looks great so far. The balloon was actually in my cervix because over the weekend my body decided all by itself that the balloon had to go. Needless to say I had major cramping for 2 days but it was nothing that I couldn't handle with a little pain medication. My dr said that I may or may not have a cycle because of all the Estrogen I am on, well my body said we are having a cycle regardless of all this mess. With all of the contracting of my uterus it pushed the balloon down into my cervix. So having the balloon removed was a piece of cake. It did not hurt at all. I have to go back for a saline ultrasound on Sept. 12th after my first normal cycle so the dr can make sure that the lining has grown like it is suppose to. After that I will be released back to my OBGYN and hopefully we can start trying in just a few months. I would like to thank all of you for sharing your experiences just knowing that there are other people that have gone through the same things I have been through has been a major comfort and blessing to me. Please feel free to ask me any questions about the surgery and recovery and I will be happy to answer them for you.

Have a great day!!!

Last year I had 2 surgeries to remove the septum. It was so large and extensive that my RE wasn't able to do it all at once. I am 21 weeks pregnant now, and hoping to be able to carry to term this time. I'd be happy to answer any questions that i can, about my experience.
Hi Lisa, I have had 2 m/c and both occurred during the first trimester. A few days ago my gyn performed a hysteroscopy on me and found that I have a really thick septum in my uterus. She is going to do an HSG and then refer me to a fertility specialist. I noticed that you are located in CA too. Could you please let me know where you had your surgery done or the name of your RE that did your surgery? I was told that there could be complications because it's thick and removing it could cause problems with my fertility. Thank you.

Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

Hi -- I just found out I have a uterine septum, and my doctor asked me to call his office once I start my period so we can schedule surgery to correct it. He says he performs these procedures on Fridays, but I forgot to ask him when in my cycle I will need to have the surgery.

For those of you that have had the surgery, at what point in your cycle was your surgery scheduled?

Hi cbp101594, I read all your threads and thank you for posting all your step-by-step experiences.. I have been exactly thru the same phase like yours..
But I do have few more questions?? like:
1. After the surgery were you able to have the normal menstrual cycles??
2. How long dr had told you to wait before you get pregnant???
3. Did Dr tell you to monitor your Ovolution cycle for at least one month before you get pregnant??

Here is wht I have been thru..
In Apr'07 I got pregnant and was 8 weeks went for my First UV Scanning, the doctor didn't find the heart beat and said the embryo was 6 weeks size.. and suggested us to have a D&C. But We told her we wud wait for the natural miscarriage process... and next week again I went for another scanning, then the dr told us the embryo size shrunk to 5 weeks now.. So finally we have decided to have D&C and went for it.

In July, I got pregnant again was 10 weeks and I was also spotting. Went for UV Scanning and they found out the embryo size was 5 weeks... and the dr asked me to come for another scanning after a week.. Anyways within two days I had a natural miscarriage..
So Finally after a month my doctor has scheduled some tests for me and my husband:
1) Some blood work on me,
2) Asked my husband to get his chromosome count Test
3) Scheduled an HSG Test for me

In September I got my HSG Test and they found that I have a uterine septum.. so finally met fertility specialist.
In November I got my Uterine Septum removed. After my surgery I was on some medication (Estrogen) for a month and then after 1week I had a normal menstrual cycle (Dec 9th). My doctor told me to wait for a second menustrual cycle and then try to get conceived...

But I am all worried today it is Jan13th and my 2 menstrual cycle hasn't started yet.. I have no cramps at all.. generally I have before the ycle... I haven't checked my Ovolution cycle last month too..... So just want to find out from you if you had any of such problems with menstrual cycles..
Any informaiton would be helpful! Thanks!

Re: What to expect with uterine septum surgery.

I had the Vaginal septum surgery. I was out of work for 2 days. It did not really hurt that much at all. I also have 2 cervix and 2 uterus. They thought I had a uterus septum but after the MRI or Cat scan forgot which one they showed just a vaginal septum, with 2 seperate Uterus. Good luck to you I hope you have the same recovery I did
