I have Didelphys Uterus, Can I Get Pregnant?

by Legeartis

Two days ago I have been diagnosed with uterus didelphys.

I want to know if I can have children, what is the risk if I get pregnant?

Didelphys Uterus and Pregnancy

Uterus didelphys is a malformation of the structure of the uterus where the uterus is a paired organ. This defect occurs during embryo development. The woman with this type of uterus has indeed two uterus structures and two separate cervices. Each individual uterus is a single horn connected to a fallopian tube.
Women with the condition often have nor symptoms and some have painful periods and painful urination.

It is possible to get pregnant and to have a healthy baby, but the pregnancy will need to be monitored very closely as there is a higher incidence of breech presentation and premature delivery.

Uterus didelphys is diagnosed through a pelvic examination that will typically reveal a double cervix. Some cases of uterus didelphys may involve duplication of the vagina as well. An ultrasound of the uterus, a transvaginal ultrasound, a MRI and 3D ultrasound techniques are among the type of diagnostic tools utilized to diagnose it.

There is no treatment for uterus didelphys. Women with a double uterus may have difficulty getting pregnant as a result of higher rate of spontaneous abortions, and need special attention during pregnancy and postpartum (increased possibility of haemorrhaging).

There is also a higher risk of multiple pregnancy since each uterus can carry its own separate fetus, which tend to be premature and needing a C-section delivery.

Yes You Can Get Pregnant
by: Anonymous

yes u can get pregnant... but it will be hard for you to carry it because most people with a didelphys uterus and if you can carry it will be even harder to carry past six my case my first I lost but three months later I found out I was pregnant and I carried him all the way to 36 weeks and 4 days...but at six months I started to have full blown contractions and they had to put me on meds to stop them...but its up to your body and if you can hold them...

I was also told I had a Didelphys Uterus, but for me its the complete opposite. My doctor told me that I had an extremely low chance of having my own kids and I'm 17 and still have not started my periods yet. I suppose its different for everyone but surely the symptoms cant be this different can they?

Double Uterus and Ectopic
by: Sarah

I was recently pregnant but the baby was in my left tube. I have a double uterus and cervix so the doc said it will be hard to get pregnant again since the "dominate" side of my cervix no longer has a tube. I want more information about all of this. Does anyone know where I can look?

Getting Pregnant with a Double Uterus and Cervix

Your doctor should probably be able to explain this much better than anyone else since he or she knows all your case details.

Ask your doctor if you have a complete uterine and vaginal septum. This is not the same as didelphys uterus where the separation is only partial. In this case you can get pregnant from both sides (ovaries and fallopian tubes).

In women with double uterus and cervix, there could be some issues in getting pregnant and staying pregnant because the second uterus may too small to allow a full term pregnancy.

In very rare cases, the second cervix may not communicate with the uterus at all, thus preventing the sperm from reaching the fallopian tubes and preventing getting pregnant altogether.

Many Blessings!

Two uterus, two cervix and two vagina
by: ammu

I have 2 female structures. Last month I lost my baby at 5th month. Can I get healthy baby next. I am very much afraid about this problem? Can any one have this problem?


Hi Ammu,

It is very rare, but possible. Most women give birth to normal healthy babies. It is so sad that you lost your pregnancy, but you may try again and be successful.

Talk to your doctor about your specific case, but like you one in a million women have this type of anatomy and can get pregnant and have babies naturally.

Many blessings!
