Answer:

A bicornuate uterus is one of the most common uterine abnormalities. It is usually diagnosed by ultrasonography. In difficult cases, MRI can also be used. There is no effective treatment for this condition. Fortunately, it is not known to prevent pregnancy or cause infertility. However, there might be an increased risk of miscarriage, premature labor and breech presentation (where the infant does not deliver head first). Most women with this condition are able to become pregnant and have healthy children. You should discuss this condition with your obstetrician or an infertility specialist.
