A (fairly) normal uterine cavity and endometrial lining are necessary in order to conceive and maintain a pregnancy. There are several conditions related to the cavity or the lining that can cause problems. One of them is a T-shaped uterus.

This is a very rare congenital uterine malformation caused by exposure to DES, a synthetic estrogen compound (drug) that was given to some pregnant women in the 1950's and 1960's. In some cases, the DES exposure caused uterine malformations in the developing female fetus.

Sometimes these uterine malformations cause problems with a woman's ability to carry a pregnancy to full term. A T-shaped uterus increases the risk for early miscarriages, as well as the risk of preterm labor and delivery. However, some women with a T-shaped uterus carry their pregnancies without problems.

There are also other potential problems that can be caused by DES exposure, such as abnormal Pap smears - and even a predisposition to a type of cervical cancer.

TESTIMONIALS

profile

I am so grateful for Advanced Fertility Center. I just had my son Leland. I want to thank Dr. Catenacci and all of the nurses that helped us. Especially Ashley in the Crystal Lake office. You made this process easier by being supportive and positive. Thank you very much!

Dr. Sherban and his staff are the most amazing, compassionate, and supportive people. After almost 5 years of trying to conceive, going through numerous tests and meeting with another clinic closer to home, who told me my chances even with IVF were still very low, a good friend recommended advanced fertility center of Chicago. Best decision we ever made! We now have 2 amazing children who are now 5 and 3 years old! I cannot stress enough how amazing this staff is, they make you feel like family!

Our experience was amazing with Dr. Cantanucci and all of the nurses (especially Ashley). After ttc for 4 years and at 41 years of age, we became pregnant after 1 round of IVF, and had our beautiful boy this past October. Can't thank them enough!
