MRI today-what will my ute be?

edited July 2013 in Trouble TTC
Today I have my scheduled MRI. My RE suspected an arcuate or bicornuate uterus after the transvaginal U/S. HSG confirmed either a bicornuate or septate uterus, so until this is determined I have no set plan. I am super disappointed I was so ready to get on with this and start on my OI/IUI but there is always something else. I am absolutely dreading this MRI, I feel either way is a lose/lose situation. I either have a bicornuate and there is nothing to do there but continue TTC as I have the past 19mo or I have a septate and require surgery and after that see if I can get pregnant. 

I asked my RE about what are my chances of conceiving with either one and he said he didn't know because although both conditions have higher chances of MC they don't really know how it affects someone that has never ever been pregnant like in my case.

Any words of wisdom or anyone who has been in the same boat and has any input it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: MRI today-what will my ute be?

  • I don't have any experience with this, but I just wanted to say FX for you. 

    Also, I googled a bit and there are success stories that might help reassure you in either scenario:

  • Hi guys. MRI is done went pretty uneventful other than the contrast made me super nauseous afterwards. Now is the waiting game as my RE is off on vacation until Aug 12.

  • @MaiTaiBeth I seem to have a great ability to doze in and out of sleep while in the MRI. This one was pretty good, I had satellite radio, cozy blanket and the nurse/tech was really nice.

  • Update: So I went for my dx. I don't have a septate or bocornuate ute , apparantly I have a very severe form of arcuate. So good news is I don't need surgery. Not so good news I still have a wonky womb so I might still have a high risk of MC if/when I get pregnant. 
    Does this give me any answer as to why am I still not pregnant? Haha, of course not that would be asking too much
