What are the consequences of having a small uterus?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 08/05/2021

The symptoms and consequences of having an infantile womb will depend on the degree of hypoplasia and the size of the womb. It is possible that the woman may never have a menstrual period or, if she does have one, it may be scanty and painful.

On the other hand, having a small uterus during pregnancy can lead to complications such as miscarriage, intrauterine fetal death or very premature delivery.
