I am anxiously waiting for a call from Dr. S. I picked up the CD of images from my HSG yesterday and it had a copy of the written results attached to it. Once in the car I decided to take a peek, figuring I had a blocked tube at the worst. It never ceases to amaze me how wrong I can be.
Unicornuate configuration of the uterus with a single, open, left fallopian tube.
In short, I have half a uterus and one tube. It is a defect where one half of the uterus either doesn't form or only partially forms. It occurs in about 1 in 4,000 women. What does this mean for my fertility? The risk for miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, and pre term labor are significantly higher. I will also be labeled a high risk pregnancy and most likely end up with c-section if I get pregnant. This is due to the fact that the baby tends to run out of room to move and is usually breech. It is unlikely that I will carry past 36 weeks.
So here I sit, waiting for the phone to ring. Millions of scenarios are running through my mind, a large percent of them do not end well.
