What is duplicated uterus?

Duplicated uterus, also known as uterus didelphys is a congenital anomality that occurs at the time of reproductive development that results in two uteruses. Each ovary is attaches to its own uterus and functions as a typical uterus.

How do I know if I have a duplicated uterus?

Most women are not aware they have a duplicated uterus until they are trying to conceive. Duplicated uterus can cause complications when trying to conceive, as each uterus is typically notably smaller than a typical, single uterus. Duplicated uterus can be found via pelvic ultrasonography, which are performed on a weekly basis in office. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, Dr. Shakiba works collaboratively with an infertility specialist to decide whether surgery is needed in order to ensure a safe, minimally complicated pregnancy.
