TTC after 35

Anyone have a uterine septum or bicornuate uterus?

I have one or the other but it can't be 100% diagnosed without a laparoscopy.  Neither supposedly effect fertility but they absolutely can impact carrying a baby to full term, depending on where the embryo implants. The septum can be fixed but the bicornuate uterus cannot. Since I've never actually conceived, I'm focusing on that first.

Just wondering if anyone else has this diagnosis? Anyone ever had a laparoscopy?

    My friend has a bicornate ut and had no problems conceiving, with the pregnancy or the birth.  All of the women in her family have it, but none of the others are married yet.  All of their gyns have said its not a big deal.

    I've never heard of the issues you mentioned, but I had a laparoscopy a few months ago.  They wanted to get a good look at my uterus and ovaries.  I ended up having endometriosis burned off as well as a cyst.  I never had any symptoms from them though.  The procedure was find, I was put under and was sore for a day or so after.  Other than that it was fine!

    I have not had that diagnosis, but it was something that my doctor had mentioned because I had two miscarriages.  I had that xray - hsg - done.  Has your doc mentioned that at all?  I did have a laparoscopy & hysteroscopy last week for endometriosis.  There was some indication of that on the x-ray but you're right that the lap is the only way to know for sure.  I was afraid to have the surgery but it wasn't really that bad.
