So, I showed the RE my HSG pics with my funky bicornuate uterus (BU) vs. septum (SU) and he asked why it wasn't investigated further until now. Good question!! According to him the risks for m/c are 40% with a BU, 70% with a SU. The good thing is that the septum can be surgically removed and the chance lowers to 30% (again, his numbers...I've see others in my research close to this). He almost seemed ticked that the other docs said to TTC.
He did an exam and 3D ultrasound. He thinks at this point that I have a septum but he can't be 100% certain until he's doing surgery. The plan is to put me back on BCP with next AF, do a sonohystogram to get a better look (maybe around this time next month), and have surgery after 2 months on BCP.
The RE said there is no fix for BU. DH is worried that I am BU. I feel like, well, we'll cross that bridge when we get there but for right now I need to know I did everything possible to ensure our highest chance for success. I'm really glad we decided to look into this and not jump back into TTC like my OB recommended.

November 2008: DH in hospital, ?CP/horrid AF
Winter 2008: back on BCP
Spring/Summer 2009: last chemo, radiation for DH
January 2010: bye-bye BCP, waiting
March 2010: green light to TTC
April 2010: BFP (4/1), beta ~900 (4/2)
