Hi Amber, I'm up in Brisbane & I had my first son in Sydney under Prof Bennet @ Royal Womens Randwick. So, if & when your ready to have children, he managed my first pregnancy. Understand your concerns but even with UD, everyones anatomy is a little different & without all the tests, hard to know what challenges you will face. Feel free to ask q's. Renee

Hey Amber,
I'm sorry you seem to feel so negatively about your UD (condition, not disease...don't let yourself see it in that way). I felt just the same when I found out at 14. Took a long time to 'get over' those negative feelings. Mainly because I had no one to talk to. So hopefully having the people on this site will help you somewhat.

Doctors think it's because our reproductive system didn't fuse properly (it starts in two halves for everybody) before birth. Hence how we end up how we are. It's not weird, or abnormal, just a different way to be than the majority.
Yes, you should have just as much chance as having children as anybody else, and there are members to this site that have children. So try not to worry about that. There can be some complications, but there can be complications for women with just the one uterus too.
Please, ask as many questions as you like, as I'm sure myself, Nell and the others are more than happy to help.

You should check out the forum to get ask your questions and have as many see and answer them as possible.

Lots of love, please don't be sad. Need to learn to love ourselves just as we are :) xxxx

Hey fire away.. I am 38 years old had problems with periods all my life until luckily one doctor, after a routine smear test, discovered I had two vaginas. I then had a laparoscopy (camera through the belly button) to determine the shape of my uterus. Was told I had two completely separate ones, two vaginas, polysystic ovarian syndrome and that my right fallopian tube was scarred and irrepairable. Thought all was lost but I have since had 6 pregnancies, first one miscarried at 10 weeks, second is my 6 year old daughter born by section at 38 weeks (carried in left uterus), third miscarried at 8 weeks by medical evacuation, fourth my 3 year old son, fifth miscarried at 20+ weeks (delivered normally, currently pregnant for the sixth time due in July! I had my vaginal septum surgically removed. Have had problems during pregnancy but have heard of women, one of whom is a very good friend of mine, who have had it worse than me... Don't let this condition, not disease, get you down... Our uterus just didn't form properly thats all but it shouldn't stop you having a normal life and hopefully children. I am more than happy to answer any questions no matter how personal if it helps you at all... take care and keep your chin up its not as bad as it first seems x x x
