Hi! I just came across this and hope people actively use this page. It would be great to have someone to discuss and go through this with who understands! I went to the doctor around 15 due to horribly painful periods. I threw up every month due to the pain. I was always brushed off because a lot of girls have cramps. I could tell they just thought I was being dramatic... I wasnt.😑 I was put on the pill to make my periods lighter, which did really help! Fast forward a few years, at 18 I decided to try an IUD because I was in a serious relationship and wasnt good at remembering to take my pill every day. After a traumatic experience at the doctors office (the worst pain I have ever been in), they were concerned with how difficult it was to locate my cervix and wanted to do a vaginal ultrasound. This wasnt my first ultrasound. I had one at 15, but they didnt find anything. When having it done this time, the lady instantly noticed and made a comment that I was very unique. I was diagnosed with uterine didelphys and have 2 of everything. I also had a septum which I had surgically removed. Here I am now at 26, married, and thinking about ttc in the near future, but I am scared. I have so many questions that my doctors cant answer. I'm worried that since I havent started trying yet, it may take years to conceive, and how many miscarriages will I have to go through? I know everything is worst case scenario running through my mind, but it really is terrifying to think about all the what ifs. If there are people that actively use this forum, I would love to keep in contact!

Hey! So I was just diagnosed with UD this week after a miscarriage last month and several ultrasounds where no one even told me anything was different 🤦🏼♀️ so I’ve been feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed. So grateful to find this group and have some community in this! When my doctor told me about it she basically just said “well this is quite weird” and “best of luck” then shrugged her shoulders and left... so needless to say I’m looking for a new doctor now. We got pregnant first try last time which is a blessing but the miscarriage was extremely difficult and I’m just so terrified to go through that again. We had to pay out of pocket for everything regarding the miscarriage as well due to being out of town at the time. So funds are low and spirits are super low right now. I want to start trying again so bad but could really use some encouragement from people who know more about this. Also any recommendation for where to find a doctor that might be more familiar with this would be great as well! I’m in Virginia, USA.
