Overview

A woman with a septate uterus has a normal shaped uterus with a wall of tissue creating two cavities.

  • Some women may not even realize they have a septate uterus, even during pregnancy and childbirth.
  • A septate uterus may not require treatment unless there is recurrent pregnancy loss. Removing the wall may enable a pregnancy to reach full term.
