Thanks for posting your query.
A subseptate uterus is a congenital anomaly and is not responsible for the pain you are having in your lower abdomen. Surgical correction might reduce the chances of your recurrent abortions but is not likely to cure the pain you are having.
If the cause of lower abdominal pain could not be detected on ultrasound and MRI then a diagnostic laparoscopy might be helpful.
You can discuss about this with your gynecologist.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I have been to my doctor about it that's what she's blaming the pain on. I've been fighting with my doctor to be sent to a specialiest

Thanks for writing again.
The pain is more likely to be due to endometriosis. Subseptate uterus is not painful. You need to consult a specialist for this.
Hope my answer is helpful.
