The usual risk cited for a heart-shaped or septate uterus is that the embryo might implant on the septum itself, which has a poor blood supply, or that the baby will have restricted space to grow and might come early or even miscarry at the later stages because of this.  I think your doctor is right, unless both times you miscarried it was due to the embryo implanting on the septum and not getting enough blood supply.  You can have the septum removed, the surgery is done as a D&C and is usually ultrasound-guided so the doctor can see the septum.

Hi I have a friend who has a double uterus. She was told that she wouldn't be able to get pregnant but she did. Sadly the first pregnancy ended in a premature baby that did not live. Then she went to a different Dr before trying for her second pregnancy.  They ended up sewing the one side shut during her next pregnancy and she was on meds to keep her from going into labor.  Once she reached where the docs werew comfortable that the baby would be ok they unsewed the other side and let her go into labor.  Baby was born premature but is now three months old and doing great!

There is no way to know if the embryo was on the septum.  That is one of the reasons having the surgery to remove it is a good thing ... you never have to second-guess why a miscarriage happened.  The other, of course, is that you remove that risk.

Except for something obvious like that, the usual reason for a miscarriage is something about the embryo itself.  In this country, after three miscarriages, insurance will pay for a full fertility workup for the man and the woman, to rule out some of the genetic possibilities.  Possibly you two should be looking into something like that.

The surgery to remove the septum is a relatively simple thing to do (if it is just a septum) and it increases the chances of a happy outcome.

Good luck!
