Hi, I am a new member. I am 23 and gave birth to a 14 week early daughter in 2001. I have had extremely painfull periods all my life sice I started at 11. The pain has always been really bad on my right side. After so many years, my monthly cycle turned into 3 days of lying in bed, vomiting, diarhea, and an inability to eat or drink until after the second day. I had about 4 miscarriages before finally carring a pregnancy for 5 1/2 months. At the time of my emergency c-section, my surgeon found what he referred to as a bicornuate uterus with a rudimantary horn. All the research I have done says that what I have is a unicornuate uterus with horn but I am not sure if there is much of a difference. I know that I was not lucky enough to have just a bicornuate uterus because of this horn thing. I am going in for a test next week where the doc will shoot water into my uterus and look at it with ultrasound to see if there is a canal between the large uterus and the tiny one. If there is a canal, I have no choice but to leave it alone. If there isn't a canal, he will remove it and my chances of a longer pregnancy will be better. I would love info on the test that is scarry to me and info on my uterus.
