Hi ladies i have recently been diagnosed with a subseptate uterus and was advised by my doc to have corrective surgery i was wondering if anyone has any good reccomendations of drs/surgeons who can correct a subseptate uterus.

I started researching a bit and am totally freaked about surgery, would  greatly appreciate any help.

I have just moved to Australia (Melbourne) and would greatly appreciate any reccomendations. I don't mind considering travelling out of state if need be to get it done.

You won't need to move out of state as there are many wonderful gynaecologists who'll be able to see you in Melbourne.

Personally unless you've experienced fertility issues already I think any gynaecologist will be able to treat this with quite non invasive surgery but they'll want to confirm the diagnosis I would imagine.

If you'd like to PM me your location I could probably help you.

Thank you for your help I actually had seen a couple of doctors before moving to Melbourne the first two doctors diagnosed it as a bicoruate uterus however I wasn't very with their approach so I decided to seek another opinion and after seeing the third doctor which was very thorough with his investigations he looked at my hsg(dye test) and requested an mri to make sure and turned out i had a subseptate.

He advised that i get it corrected as i am having trouble conceiving and if i were to take the ivf path he didn't want me to take any chances as with a subseptate theres a higher risk of miscarriage.

Although im really scared of the surgery I can't help but think of what if it maybe the cause that im having problems conceiving and if not and i were to go with ivf I don't want to take the chance and have a high risk of miscarriage.

I have tried to research as much as possible about the surgery and surgeons many women with similar conditions have warned to look for someone experienced with such surgery which is what im trying to do before I make a decision on which doctor to go see

I have one, not complete but a fair way down. One 9w miscarriage after using Clomid (for PCOS). My twin pregnancy after that was successful. They literally pushed it to the side and the other side of my uterus stretched more. It freaked a few sonographers out!

It can cause miscarriages if the egg implants in the wrong spot. I’d seek further clarification on how bad it is.
