The incidence of uterine congenital anomalies because of müllerian defects in the normal fertile population is 3.2% (22/679). Twenty (90%) of them are septate uteri, whereas a bicornuate (5%) and a didelphys uterus (5%) have been also found in this population. Based on these findings, we question the usefulness of the septum resection in patients with septate uterus and no previous reproductive failure.
