Is it true that a bicournate uterus can cause infertility. We've tried to get pregnant for two years, and no luck. Is there anything we can do to help?

Some miscarry and are unable to carry any pregnancy, and others have very normal pregnancies and deliver eight-pound babies. The determining factor is the extent and location of the septum, and where the ovum implants. Reports of miscarriage with a bicornuate uterus show a high rate of about 30 percent. Preterm birth rates in one study were about 20 percent, and fetal growth restriction occurred in about 10 percent. Abnormal presentation or position of the baby can occur; breech presentation occurred in about 43 percent. Cesarean-birth rates also are increased; in one study, cesarean births were performed in about 82 percent.
A bicornuate uterus is a birth defect where the uterus does not form as it should. Instead of one whole uterus, there are usually two separate ‘horns’ that form the top of the uterus. If a fertilized egg implants in one of the horns, that pregnancy usually is not viable as the horns do have the normal uterine tissue to support a pregnancy, nor the space for a baby to grow.
To answer your question, yes, it can cause infertility but I would suggest seeing a fertility specialist or someone who specializes in this that can possibly help you concieve.
