Pathophysiology: Uterus Didelphys, more commonly known as a double uterus, is a condition where a woman’s uterus forms differently, creating a double uterus, two separate cervices and sometimes two vaginas (though not always). Its exact cause is unknown, but it is generally present from birth, though often only becomes noticeable after puberty.
Symptoms • Unusual pressure or cramping pain before or during a menstrual period • Abnormal bleeding during a period, such as blood flow despite the use of a tampon .
Treatment: Surgery to unite a double uterus is rarely done — although other surgical procedures may help if you have a partial division within your uterus.
