hi ladies i just wanted to get feedback from any one that has had their septum removed as well as the extra organs, how was it pain wise, and fertility wise- did it make getting pregnant easier? how long was the hospital stay? did your medical aid/insurance cover the procedure or did it fall under a fertility/ cosmetic catagorie where they only pay a portion. where about in the world are you from and what gynaecologist/ specialist did the operation/ consultations and are they specialists in this field or have the only seen your case of uterus didelphys ?? another thing, if the extra uterus is removed is it considered a hysterectomy? ive heard that its extremely painful post op and you are in bed for a while. my mother also says that the hysterectomy ruined her body and made her fat. (she does not have uterus didelphys) thank you:)

Hi Lauren I had my septum removed about 10 years ago. Not painful at all - under anaesthetic so the worst bit is coming round from that but afterwards I was completely fine. I'm now pregnant with my first after only trying for a couple of months! And all ok, being closely monitored but so far, so good - am now 18 weeks. If you want any other info just ask x

Can UD be fixed. My consultant told me they don't like to mess with it, if that makes sense?

I just had a vaginal septum removed on 9/26 when my doctor found out I have UD. He said that it is not typically removed because it has shown to have severe complications in the past and that if we wanted to remove it he refused to do it and we would need to find another doctor. We are not going to get it removed and just hope for the the best.

I was just diagnosed this past month and was told that it was best to leave the second uterus/cervix in. I did get the septum removed two days ago, and although there is pain involved, it isn't horrendous and I am sure I will be back to my normal self by next week! 


I haven't tried to get pregnant yet, but hoping, like everyone else, that there aren't complications because of this rare abnormality!

I had my second uterus and cervix removed when I was 14. I have had complications with the unconnected ovary but other than that I'm fine.

From what I have been told by my doctor, unless you are having problems with one of the uteri there is no need to remove it. It doesn't change the size of the uteri that is left and will decrease your chances of getting pregnant by 20-30% (unless you have double set of tubes and ovaries too). These statistics do not apply to women who have a septate uterus instead of two completely seperate ones. I have heard on other forums where women with a septate uterus have had the septum removed and it has helped with having a successful pregnancy. Although even with that, there are risks of scar tissue developing inside the uterus that can make it hard for the fertilized egg to implant.

Hope this is helpful. I'm not a doctor, but I have asked lots of questions, read lots of article and forum posts, and have had a wonderful doctor that had delt with other UD patients before.

You should always just ask your doctor and if he/she doesn't know find another one that does. There are doctors out there that are educated and experienced with women with our condition that can be so helpful. Talking to someone in person gives you a sense of comfort that forum post can't.

I've had the septum removed but Drs have never said anything about the extra uterus being removed. All they told me is that if I have a successful pregnancy and delivery, they would go in a "block" the other uterus off so I can only continue to get pregnant in the one that has already been streched.

My dr didn't recommend it, he said it will cause more complications. Also it will decrease my chances getting pregnant. I was scheduled to get my septum removed but that next week I found out I was pregnant. I been trying for 2 years. I gave birth naturally I was induced at 38 weeks.

I am not sure why you would have the second removed unless there is something seriously wrong with one side. I have had two babies on my right side and my high-risk doctor thought that the left side would probably be a dud but I am currently pregnant on the left side and everything is going great. My right side has a smaller cervix so I ended up having a c-section with the first two but I am going to try a vaginal delivery with the third, if only this baby will turn out of its breech position. I do have a small septum on the right side and the doctor said it would probably just tear during birth but it probably won't be a problem with the left side now.
