Q&A: Would a doctor have done a tubal reversal if there was an issue with my uterus?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

Fertility Dr has indicated that I have either a BU/septum uterus. She diagnosed this with HSG test, which also showed both tubes are still open. I've had 2 full-term babies (granted a very long time ago), tubes tied (nine yrs ago) and then reversed (1 yr ago). Wouldn't this have come up before? I am now 43. Would the Dr have done the tubal reversal if the uterus was an issue or is this something they don't check or notice? Fertility Dr is saying that I need to wait to get pregnant when I ovulate on the left side but given my history is this really necessary?

Tracy we don't usually look for this unless there miscarriage problems.
If the left side of the uterus is enlarged from the 2 prior pregnancies then you are more likely to make it to term beings the pregnancy is on that side.
