Possible Misdiagnosis of Vaginal Septum...Where to Go From Here?
Sorry this is kind of lengthy!
So, I'm only 18 years old, and this previous November I went in for an annual gynecological checkup, and was seen by a midwife who was covering my doctor for the day. After having two previous annuals, nothing strange had been noticed, however the midwife told me this time that she saw that I had a longitudinal vaginal septum, and thought it was very interesting (and asked if she could look again!). She told me to wait for my next annual for a checkup, but I was freaked out and scheduled another appointment in December with my regular doctor. My normal doctor saw it too, and upon examination said she could see two cervixes. She told me I should consider surgery to remove the septum, but first to get a better understanding of what was actually going on.
I then was sent for MRIs to see where the two cervixes led to, and whether or not I had two uteruses, or other reproductive anomalies. My doctor took a month to respond to my messages looking for results, and finally told me the scans were inconclusive. She took the scans to another specialist to read, and they said they only saw one cervix, and no abnormalities. CONFUSING. So my mother and I found the best gynecologist in the area (according to a few sources), and when he did a normal exam, he said he didn't see anything wrong, except swelling on one side of my cervix (he only saw one) that he couldn't see past. He said its possible there could be something else past there such as another cervix, but didn't see any reason for surgeries, and didn't see a septum at all. He said he would review the MRI scans again for me with another specialist, just to double-check.
He called me back and told me nothing showed up in the scans, and offered for me to get a hysterosonogram to check for sure that nothing funny was going on. I heard the procedure can be really uncomfortable, and am not sure if I should or not. Is it possible that my first two doctors could not have really seen a septum? Or is the new one just missing it entirely? I'm not worried yet about getting pregnant, but if this could be an issue in the future I'd rather get everything fixed now so I wouldn't have to be concerned with it later.
