When you have bicornuate uterus you may be at risk of abortion or preterm birth. So you need to be monitored frequently for the length of the cervix ( mouth of the uterus). If there is progressive shortening you may require a cervical stitch to close the mouth of the uterus and it will be removed at 37weeks of pregnancy. If the cervical length is good you are unlikely to have apreterm birth.
