Objective:  To determine the pregnancy rates after uterin septum resection, in an infertile women population. Methods: We recruited 255 infertile women who have preoperative diagnosis of uterine septum and whom underwent hysteroscopic operation. We calculated the birth rates and the pregnancy rate between the primary and secondary infertile groups of women. Results: The clinical pregnancy rate, the live birth rate, and the abortion rate were 35.4% (primer infertile [n=52, 35.6%], seconder infertile [n=31, 35.2%]), 30.7% (primer infertile [n=46, 31.5%], seconder infertile [n=26, 29.5%]) and 4.7% (primer infertile [n=6, 4.1%], seconder infertile [n=5, 5.6%]) respectively. Term birth rate and preterm birth rate were 22.6% and 8.1% respectively in all infertile patients. Conclusion: The major finding of the current study is that septate uterus treatment improves obstetrical outcomes in infertile patients with an overall pregnancy rate of 35.4%.
