The effects of uterine abnormalities on pregnancy outcomes depend on the type of anomaly that is present. Broadly speaking, they are commonly associated with:

  • Miscarriage
  • Delivery before 37 weeks
  • Malpresentation in labor (presentations of the fetus other than vertex)
  • Fetal growth restriction
  • Placental abruption
