I also have a bu.
So far It's not really caused me any issues ... Though I have been ttc for 4 years 4 mths , they say it isn't my uterus causing me issues .
I have had to have extra scans when doing iui as they won't do treatment on anymore than 2 follicles .
When I do my Ivf they will only transfer 1
I've been told I will be high risk of m/ c but just need to see what happens
Hope you feel better soon x
Least I have my fur babies x

I guess it affects us in different ways.
I only really discovered my uterus when I was 7 weeks pregnant and had a massive bleed, which I continued to have up until 4-5 months. It did make sense after all the problems with periods I'd had over the years.
Luckily my placenta and Lola dropped into the bottom of my uterus as they were originally in my horns which is not good when you have a heart shaped womb!
And I had to have a section because my placenta was very low, Lola turned breach last minute and of course doctors do not encourage women with a heart shaped womb into natural labours.
Good luck ttc, I hope everything works out for you xx

I was told I have a slight bicornuate but they are still investigiating at the moment.
I am told that it doesnt affect fertility and that we are at a higher risk of miscarrage, although have never been pregnant so I cant comment on that.
I get very heavy painful periods and its really painful at ovulation time

I wonder why they're still investigating :/ I was told after an internal scan!
Many people do have problems with trying to conceive and if you google this its what it will tell you so you must have a very mild heart shaped womb?
I think I do too but it was enough to cause problems throughout my pregnancy
You can also become pregnant on many forms of contraception as they can only work for one 'horn'
I don't really know much else, 3 hospitals asked me what it was when I told them I had it!! X
