The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, has particular expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of congenital uterine anomalies. Our gynecologists offer experience and compassionate care when dealing with complex conditions including uterine septum.
A congenital uterine anomaly is an abnormal growth of the uterus, the most common being a uterine septum. A uterine septum, also known as a double uterus, is a malformation in which the uterine cavity is partitioned by a wall of tissue known as a septum. The septum may separate part of the uterine cavity, or in some cases, the entire uterine cavity and even the cervix and vagina. A uterine septum is uncommon in women, but may be the result of in vitro fertilization or one or more miscarriages.
Some patients with a uterine septum may not experience any noticeable symptoms and may be unaware of their condition. Some noticeable symptoms of a uterine septum may include the following:
