Uterine Anomalies or Uterine abnormalities

Uterine abnormalities are anatomical problems of the uterus that women are born with (congenital anomalies), including a septate, unicorneous, or bicornuate uterus.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Imaging studies such as a hysterosalpingogram and ultrasound, or an MRI is required to visualise the uterus and confirm that a congenital uterine anomaly is indeed present.

Treatment of Uterine Anomalies

Most women with congenital uterine abnormalities do not require treatment. But in a few cases, gynaecologist may recommend surgical correction. This may be done using minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy or hysteroscopy, in order to correct the uterine anomalies.
