Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The female uterus is a reproductive organ located in the pelvic cavity which is connected to two fallopian tubes (fallopian tubes) that are connected to the ovaries on the top and the vagina on the bottom. The uterus has the main function as a place to stick and the developing fetus.
Some women have an abnormal shape of the uterus. These uterine abnormalities can take a variety of forms, from the uterus which has only one fallopian tube, to the cavities in the uterus which are divided by muscle walls (septum). If the shape of the uterus does not differ much from the normal form in fact a woman still has the possibility to get pregnant but is more at risk for miscarriage, a small baby, or less fertile. However, in conditions where the uterus does not develop at all then the possibility to conceive will be very small because the uterus is a place for development and attachment to the fetus.
In vitro fertilization is the pregnancy that begins with the fertilized egg by sperm outside the body in a tube. After the embryo results from fertilization of the egg and the sperm are considered sufficiently mature, the embryo will be inserted into the uterus. The doctor will insert a kind of conduit tube called a catheter into the vagina until it reaches the uterus. To increase the chance of getting pregnant, three embryos are generally transferred at once. Two weeks after embryo transfer, the woman will be asked to do a pregnancy test. So that in this process still requires development in the womb can actually be done in the womb of the mother herself (mothers who have eggs / ovum) or left in the womb of another mother (this process has begun often done abroad, especially in women who have abnormalities in the uterus or the risk of pregnancy is very high such as seizures during pregnancy or heart failure)
For further consultation, you can consult with an obstetrician.
