Unicornuate Uterus: Definition, symptoms, causes, and treatments

About

A Unicornuate Uterus is a condition in which the uterus of a woman is smaller than the typical size and has only one functioning fallopian tube rather than two.

About 2% to 4% of women are known to be born with Unicornuate Uterus, which makes it 1 in every 1,000 women have this disorder.[1]

Unicornuate Uterus:
- Is treatable by a medical professional
- Requires a medical diagnosis
- Requires lab tests and imaging
- Can last for lifelong if not treated

Unicornuate Uterus is congenital. It means that many women are born with it, though they may not be aware of it until they become pregnant.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of Unicornuate Uterus are:
- Abdominal pain
- Difficulty in getting pregnant
- Complications during pregnancy like in delivery, miscarriage, labor, and breech delivery

Treatment

Self-care: There are no such remedies to avoid or cure this condition through self-care methods. Though patients with Unicornuate Uterus need special attention during pregnancy because miscarriage, fetal demise, premature birth are more common for them.

Medication: Treatment for this condition is usually not effective because the uterus cannot be enlarged surgically. The most accepted methods to simply manage the conditions are cervical stitch (Cerclage), Laparoscopic surgery, and emergency delivery under special care when utmost care and caution needs to be taken to avoid any risk to the mother and her baby.
