The congenital uterine anomaly as shown in the picture above represents septate uterus.
- A septate uterus forms during embryological development when the tubes that eventually become one uterus don’t fuse together properly.
- The cause of this genetic abnormality is unknown.
- Women with a septate uterus can have a normal reproductive life, but it may add complications to pregnancy. There is a higher risk for miscarriage, premature labour or breech presentation (when the baby’s feet come out first), which usually requires a Caesarean section.
