Causes and Diagnosing

A uterine septum is a developmental anomaly of the uterus as it is developing as a fetus in the womb. It is usually asymptomatic for the woman but can increase the chances of her suffering miscarriage.

Uterine Septum

It can easily be missed on routine scans. In general it can be diagnosed only after several miscarriages, or in the process of thorough infertility examinations, or during a pap-smear.

If you have been diagnosed with a Uterine Septum, most of the time it can be treated with surgery. The additional tissue is cut, so that a more normal area is created, for implantation to occur. After this surgery, the uterus is in a better condition to carry a pregnancy to term.
