Approximately one of every four women with a double uterus will have some serious reproductive problem and no living children. In women with such reproductive difficulties, namely, premature labor or repeated abortion, surgical unification of the double uterus may be followed by term delivery of a living child, but only when adequate investigation of both husband and wife reveals no other cause for the difficulty. Surgical unification may also be useful in the rare case of unilateral hematometra.
