2 arteries serving my womb
« on: August 15, 2012, 05:51:18 AM »

I have 2 arteries serving my womb and am wondering if any other ladies on here have this?

12 years ago I saw my GP as periods were too heavy to cope with and I was losing 2 days a month where I had to stay home. GP booked an ultrasound and she booked to see a gyne at the hospital and he ordered a camera scan.
The ultrascan took place and the worried radioligist spotted unusual bleeding and fetched a lady gyne to take a look, she said to me that there was bleeding into my womb and they could not find where it was coming from and that I would be offered a hyst. I thought thats great no more periods. A week later I had the camera scan and went back to see the male gyne a week later for results. He said all was well on the scan he had ordered and so I said that I had had an ultrasound done the week previous and all appeared not well and he got very annoyed with me and said he had no knowledge of me having an ultrsound scan (my gp ordered it) and his camera scan was far superior and that was the results. I went home very confused
7 yrs ago I moved home and got another GP who I went to see as periods were still horrendous. I mentioned to him the dramas I had had with the Gyne and so he ordered an ultrasound scan and it was there it was discovered I have 2 main arteries serving my womb. My new GP said I would not be offered a hyst but that it was very rare and he was retiring and had never come across it in all his years as a doctor.
So I am wondering if anyone on here is like me or am I unique

Hi Nelliedee - as far as I know a normal womb has two arteries so I am not sure what he meant.

"What are the Uterine Arteries?

The uterine arteries provide blood to the uterus. Two arteries are present, one on the left and one on the right side of the uterus. Blood from the uterine arteries supplies blood to the muscles of the uterus and the placenta."

Sounds 'within normal limits' to me.  If arteries were bleeding profusely it surely would be an emergency.  Maybe the condition wasn't explained to you fully, often Medics know what they mean but aren't clear enough!

Well it is a mystery. The latest GP said I have an extra artery serving my womb so maybe I have 3 !!!! I just wonder if thats the reason my periods have been so horribly heavy over the last 15 years.
