Yes, you are born with this condition. Nothing is known to actually cause this, the uterus just doesn't come together properly. There are varying types of a bicornuate uterus. If you carried a child full-term, you may have just a slight form that will never affect the growth of your babies. A lot of women do not know they have it. Some women cannot carry a baby past a few weeks, and then some (like me) might have there babies a few weeks early.
