I literally just found out today that I have a bicornuate uterus. I’ve had my tubes removed and have desire to have children at all, but I still find it upsetting. I’ve looked up some the symptoms like irregular vaginal bleeding, miscarriages, painful periods, abdominal discomfort, and pain during intercourse. Obviously not worried about miscarriages, but I guess I just want to talk with others about how it’s been living with this. I feel stupid for being upset about it, but it’s just another thing that’s wrong with me. I’d appreciate if you guys could share your experiences or thoughts/feelings on this.
Nausea and Vomiting
Chronic Abdominal Distention
Hi. I understand your feelings, I found about my bc uterus when I was very unexpectedly pregnant (with twins) along with my apparently useless IUD. It was all a massive shock. I never planned to have children but I carried one kid to term, along with the IUD, and had to get a csection because my uterus couldn't contract properly. I had intense menstrual cramps, heavy as hell flow, and nausea every period. This past January I had a full abdominal hysterectomy because I couldn't take the pain any more. Medical mj, tylenol, and cbd suppositories are the only thing that helped because I'm allergic to nsaids.
All of that aside, your feelings are completely valid and understandable. You get to be upset when causes you pain and discomfort. Having your choice removed from the baby equation sucks, there's a difference between I don't want this, and you can't have this.
Sometimes sex is painful, sometimes it feels pleasing, so I have no idea what is going on with my body!!
I only found out about it, like you, when I was unexpectedly pregnant (with an empty sac) and then “miscarried” (which was utter agony)
