Females are didelphic

uteri have the highest association with transverse vaginal septum.

Clinical implications of didelphic uterus--lonf term follow up of 49 cases.
Women with a didelphic
uterus often have a good reproductive outcome.
Here is a rare case of primigravida with didelphic uterus who presented at term gestation.
DISCUSSION: Two separate uterine bodies each associated with their own fallopian tube and cervix characterize the Didelphic uterus.
CONCLUSION: Favourable obstetric outcome is usual without corrective surgery for didelphic uterus, rather corrective surgery is contraindicated as the results of it is disappointing.
Congenital uterine abnormalities consist of fusion anomalies or agenesis of the developing uterus that may include septate, bicornuate, didelphic
, or unicornuate uteri.
