Hi Anonymous, 

Yes, this is correct. 

A uterine septum is a form of a congenital malformation where the uterine cavity is partitioned by a longitudinal septum; the outside of the uterus has a normal typical shape. It is associated with a higher risk for miscarriage,premature birth, and malpresentation.

A septum can be resected with surgery. Hysteroscopic removal of a uterine septum is generally the preferred method as the intervention is relatively minor and safe in experienced hands. A follow-up imaging study should demonstrate the removal of the lesion.

Hope this helps,

Hi Anon,

In some cases, yes it could be seen with just a pelvic exam.
