A uterine septum is a congenital (birth) defect where the uterus is not shaped correctly. On my first HSG in June, it appeared that I had two divided cavities. Dr. Bates resected much of the septum in September, but there was still an evident divide in January when Dr. Allemand looked at my second HSG results. After my surgery was complete in February, Dr. Allemand gave me before and after pictures of my uterus, tubes, and ovaries.

Having seen the images of my womb, I feel confident about tomorrow's HSG. At our appointment last week, Dr. Allemand said that a slight contour in the cavity would be alright. My tubes have been checked out four times already (previous HSGs and with each surgery) so I feel that I can only expect good news tomorrow.
Please keep me in your prayers tomorrow. My Dad is taking me (he also took me to my last HSG). I'm hoping for better results for the both of us. I don't think Dad could stand to see me upset again. Also, Brandon is out of town for work and I want to have something good to share with him tomorrow evening!
