I found out about my Uterus Didelphys in 2010 in a follow-up ultrasound after a miscarriage. I was 30. None of my doctors before this had noticed my vaginal septum. After my miscarriage and finding out about my UD, I was told that not only would I have trouble getting pregnant, but I woud also have a hard time staying pregnant. Shortly thereafter I found this website and read the stories of other women with UD having successful pregnancies. Talk about encouraging!! My husband and I started trying again and, within 6 months I was pregnant again. I had expected to have some troubles with the prenancy given what my doctors had been telling me, and I had certainly expected that if I was able to keep the prenancy the baby would be born early, as with many other women with UD, due to the reduced size of my uterus. It turns out there was no need for worry. The pregnancy was textbook and I went to term. My son was born by scheduled c-section at 39 weeks. He was born 8lbs 9oz. The only effect the UD had was that he was unable to turn and was thus breach.
UD can seem scary when you first learn about it, with all the possible implications for conception and pregnancy. It may very well require more time and effort to have children, but it is by no means inevitable that you will have to do without.
