Uterus didelphys surgery

Hi,

I have Uterus didelphys. I had my baby 2 years ago and went through a horrific birth. I asked if a c-section would be a good way to go and was told "natural birth should be ok, we'll wait and see." Anyway, long story short... I delivered naturally but the vaginal septum was stretched and I was left in a real mess (It was basically hanging out, sorry to be graphic!)

A few months later I had surgery to correct this and remove the septum. I thought this would be great but ever since the op sex is painful (especially after sex) I feel like I have a lot less control, my confidence has gone to nothing. It angers me so much because before all this, despite my abnormality, everything was fine. Sex was great, my periods were managable by using two tampons. Ans it seems like i am in this position now because my doctor wanted to "see what happens." At one point during childbirth, the doctor said, "i'm not sure what to do, i need to make a phone call and ask."

I have an appointment with the doctor and i'm going to ask if there is any further surgery that can be done, to tidy/tighten things up (sooo embarrassing even typing all this!)

So I am wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar and are my expectations too high?

JOjo

Re: Uterus didelphys surgery

I was diagnosed with uterus didelphys, double cervix, and a vaginal septum at 19. I chose to have the septum removed that same year (mostly to prevent damage if anything terrible were to happen--ie, rape). I haven't had any problems since its removal. I was not sexually active when it was removed and made sure to use the dilator following surgery. I can still feel a ridge (best way to describe it) from where the septum was, though have not had any pain.

I am so sorry you have had pain and difficulty since the surgery. I hope there is something they can do to help. I definitely don't think your expectations are too high. There should be something they could do to alleviate your pain.

I must say, though, I am grateful to hear of your success in having children as this has been my biggest fear with having uterus didelphys.
