How Common Is Arcuate Uterus? (Solved)

โ€œWhen I was first diagnosed with a septate uterus, I was petrified ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m had reading a lot of scary information online about the risks associated with a septate uterus ๐Ÿ˜Ž My consultant reassured me that a lot of women have congenital uterine abnormalities and are not aware ๐Ÿค“ Online, I’m reading that many women who have a septate-uterus need to be resected before they can become pregnant. This was not recommended by my consultant. My baby was born at term despite having a septate uterus. Because he was premature, I had done an elective C-section. I wish I’m would having trusted my consultant more and not believed everything I’m had reading online.โ€ Emma [1]
These can lead to infertility but they also may affect the development endometriosis. We’re finding that 38% in our clinical study had mild forms of abnormal uterine structures. This was a significant increase from the previous 28%. It is important to point out that less than 5% women have an arcuate or uvulated uterus after hysteroscopic examination. Patients with endometriosis are statistically more likely to have an arcuate or uterus than the general population. We believe it to be highly desirable. Important to shed light On uterine malformations as well as the possible impact they may have on endometriosis sufferers. [2]

Babycentre.co.uk Bicornuate Uterus is also explained. This refers to when two wombs join together into one cervix with one vagina. (Laufer & DeCherney 2019, Vaz (2015)). The uterus of this kind is not pear-shaped. It’s shaped more like a heart with deep indentation on the top. Because of this shape, it’s known as the “uterus without two horns”. One in 250 women has a bicornuate (Chan and colleagues 2011a). While it should not affect your ability or chances of you getting pregnant, there is a greater chance that your pregnancy will be complicated (Ahktar 2019a Laufer and DeChenery 2019a). Sadly, thereโ€™s also a higher risk of miscarriage (Ahktar et al 2019, Laufer and DeChenery 2019a). [3]
Reliasmedia.com Also, the arcuate is one of most prevalent congenital uterine anomalies. The arcuate, although generally believed to not have an effect on fertility, there are conflicting data. It is unclear what an arcuate or a uterus is, which further complicates the matter. These difficulties aside, researchers at an IVF centre did a retrospective analysis of patients who had undergone IVF, comprehensive chromosomal screen (CCS), and subsequent transfer (thawed embryos in artificial menstrual cycles) of their euploid embryos. This review was to assess the effects of an arcuate or uterus on live birth rates and implantation. To avoid the possibility of embryo aneuploidy, they have limited their inclusion to patients who had undergone CCS. All patients were subject to a three-dimensional ultrasound exam and flexible hysteroscopy in an office setting during the early follicular phases. An arcuate uterus was defined as existing when the myometrium extended perpendicularly below an interstitial line connecting the cornua on ultrasound by 4 to 10 mm with a myometrial angle > 90 degrees and was confirmed by hysteroscopy. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recently published a guideline for practise.1 We are grateful to Michaela Bock, Jalandhar (India), for sharing this definition. [4]
