I don't know if anyone else has had this experience but when I was first made aware of my UD, the reason my GYN didn't properly diagnose me was because my left cervix was very small. It was only by having her stand up and have her hand shift during the internal exam that she ever noticed it in the first place. But my question is, is the left cervix always smaller? I'm terrified for whenever I am ready to get pregnant, that either I won't be able to or I will have a hard time. Anyone out there have a smaller right side? Or have a similar experience? How were you first diagnosed? I know it's a ton of questions but I am starving for information!!! Thank you all for your stories and advice!!!

I was just diagnosed yesterday and they told me that the left uterus is significantly smaller than the right. They suggested that it may even be shrinking though it is fully formed. So I'm not really sure if that means I have a smaller cervix as well, I still have a ton of questions. They told me that although I am able to concieve in the left uterus, they dont think that it will expand the way it needs to or sustain a pregnancy. I am also unsure if I have a divided vagina. I didn't realize that it was a possibility and the midwife said nothing to me about it because they only performed an ultrasound. Hope this helps!

Hi, I have 2 of everything. My left side is actually bigger then my right. I have had 2 kids and both have been on the left side. They always thought my right side was alot smaller then the left but a few years back i had a 3D scan that showed the cervix is smaller but the uteri is not much smaller I also had partial seperation of the vaginal septum when i was a baby but you can easily tell the 2 sides, and the right the vagina is smaller too, so whenever i have sex it always goes to the left. Either way both sides are about half the size of a normal one. Both my children were premmie, my 1st was 32 weeks born small with growth restriction (IUGR) and came out all squished like an over due baby and my second was born at 28 weeks.

I was never told if either of my sides were smaller than the other but my daughter was just born 6 weeks early from the right and my son was only 2 weeks early on the left. My daughter definitely had less space in the right, I could tell, she was also breech.

The left isn't always smaller, my left uterus and cervix are dominant, or bigger than my right.

I believe both of mine are about the same, what I do know is that which ever side is ovulating is the side that BECOMES larger, and was the "easy" side to inseminate

When I was diagnosed, I was told that both sides are about the same, for me.

I have two uteri and only one cervix (sort of) The front of my cervix only has one opening, but somewhere between it and my uteri it splits into two.

I didn't even know I had UD until I was pregnant for the third time. I have no idea what side my first daughter was born on. My second pregnancy ended early and it was on my left. My doctor still didn't realize my condition even after the ultrasound. It wasn't until I got pregnant again shortly after the miscarriage that my doctor did another ultrasound to confirm since I had just experienced the loss. At first he thought he was going to have to tell me more bad news, but he continued to look around when he discovered my other uterus with a beautiful little being with a beating heart inside. Luckily, he had been around patients with UD before and knew what it was and how to explain risk/problems to me. That diagnosis completely explained why my first had been born 5 weeks early.

Now on to left vs. right. I have been pregnant 6 times so far. I am uncertain which side my first was on, but I think it was my right just because I experienced more discomfort on my right side. 2nd was left (BO miscarriage) 3rd right (33 weeks beautiful girl), 4th left (10 weeks miscarriage), 5th right ( momo twins miscarriage), 6th left (current 7+ weeks momo twins).

My doctor says that statistically for women with UD miscarriages are more common on the left side. Something to do with the anatomy of the left side, like its shape or something. So far that has proven true for me, although I am hopeful despite the craziness I am going through.

My left uterus and cervix are slightly smaller than the right side. I carried my son on the right side. Was put on bed rest at 6 months. Had him at 36 in a half weeks, he was born vaginally fully developed. They did have to stitch up my cervix due to tearing.

I was diagnosed 1,5 years ago at age 29 when I had problems becoming pregnant because of PCOS. I had been to gynocologists before and had ultrasounds, but this time she just "happened" to get one finger on either side of my vaginal septum. She did have trouble getting to my left cervix for the pap-smear as she said it was further back and slightly smaller. On the ultrasound however the uteri are the same size and the specialists didn't see any problem in that any cervix might not hold. I always have sex on my right side whish is slightly wider.
