Trying to conceive, second child, overweight. Ultrasound shows subseptate uterus. How is this condition overcome?

i have been trying to conceive for 30 months. I am 32 and have one child now (12). I m a little overweight but otherwise healthy. I was recently informed I have a subseptate uterus . Is this a condition someone is born with or can it happen later in life? why wasn t it detected in my first pregnancy? Could this be the reason we have not conceived?

Hi keila
Subseptate uterus is congenital malformation means inborn one,
during pregnancy,size of uterus increases,but,size of septa remains as such,
so,it may be possible that it was not detected in your first pregnancy.
In most of the cases,septa increases frequency of abortion,but rarely,it may be responsible for infertility
