Hi manjuparkavi rajkumar,

Thanks so much for your post and welcome to our EmpowHer community. Hypoplastic Uterus is a congenital problem that basically means the uterus did not develop sufficiently in size. Do you still menstruate? If you do, Hypoplastic uterus can be corrected with hysteroscopic uretroplasty--if you have stopped having periods your FSH, LH and Oestradiol levels will need to be taken. If the values suggest that you can be stimulated to have periods and ovulate then there is a role for this surgery. If values of your hormones suggest that you have developed ovarian failure surgery may not be available to you.

Wishing you the best,
