How does a uterine septum affect fertility?

The extra tissue that makes up the septum differs from that in the rest of the uterus. In particular, it has poor blood circulation. This means that embryos that land on the septum after fertilization can’t successfully implant in the uterus, or if they do manage to implant, they might fail to develop. In this way, uterine septum can be a cause of infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss.
