In this case report we present a patient with different pregnancy outcomes after IVF treatments. After an extremely premature delivery in her first pregnancy, a vaginal 3D ultrasound scan revealed a correct diagnosis for her uterine anomaly: A complete uterine septum, double cervix and non-obstructive longitudinal vaginal septum, classified as U2bC2V1 according to the European Society of Human Reproduction and EmbryologyEuropean Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESHRE-ESGE)-classification. She underwent a cervix sparing metroplasty and had a spontaneous vaginal birth at 41+2 weeks gesttation. For patients with otherwise unexplained infertility or earlier premature delivery, a diagnostic workup, oriented to the research of uterine malformations, should be taken into consideration.
