uterus didelphys help

About Me

Born in Montreal, Quebec, with a double kidney on the left side, the small part of that double kidney being attached to a secondary urethra connected to the vagina. This was creating a slow leak of urine, since birth , which made everybody dumbfounded , when I was growing up. On the right side, I have  a normal kidney connected to a normal urethra, which I was controlling like anybody else.  Dr. Morehouse, a urologist  who is still working at the Royal Victoria Hospital operated me at the age of 13 years old and removed the extra kidney on the left side, which resolved the leaking of urine.  Then at the age of 35 , I discovered a had a double uterus after a miscarriage. Nobody knew exactly if I could have a baby. Tests were done, 17 years ago, they were unable to "canulate" the left side uterus.  I consulted Dr. Togas Tulandi, who handed me a sheet where 12 examples of double uterus were illustrated. He told me I could very well have a child, but I should expect to have a cesearian and risk a premature childbith. I took a chance, and got pregnant in the right side. Got referred to Dr Alice Benjamin, specialized in high risk pregnancy. I bled for the first four months, thinking everytime that I was having a miscarriage when the cramps would start. The ultrasound would show that my baby was still ok everytime. Dr Benjamin had put me on estrogene suppository to keep the baby in.  It worked. Later , during the 5th month I had to stop working and ordered to bedrest. One evening, I lost it and went to the restaurant. The morning after, I had my baby at 35 weeks, vaginally.  My daughter will turn 15 years old soon. as I am getting into menopause. Since her birth, my menstrual cramps were very painful , every other month.My personnal theory is that I am emptying one side at a time.

Recently, however, I have developped a mass, which is located on the left horn of the uterus. Now my theory is, that the left side simply does not empty itself.

Is it a fibroid, a tumor or my left side acting up ? I am getting into my next medical pursuit.

Welcome to the site Sylvrie :)
Thank you for joining and sharing your story with us. I'm sure I and others will be able to offer opinions and advice, so I hope you stay in contact.
As for your advice on the design of the site that you sent to me, the reason(s) I've kept it as it is for now is because I've had a lot of people compliment it and also I personally find light on dark easier to read BUT thank you ever so much for your suggestion and I will find out what others think soon :) To be honest, I'll change the layout every now and then anyway :)
Talk soon,
Love, Phoebe xx
