The incidence of uterine anomalies in general population is about 3-5 %.abnormalities of fusion of mullerian duct during embryogenesis results in varied congenital abnormalities like arcuate, septate, uni-cornuate, bi-cornuate uterus. Majority of them are asymptomatic. The suspicion of uterine abnormalities is always considered when there is a history of recurrent abortions, intrauterine growth restrictions, preterm labour, mal-presentations. We are presenting a 31 year old pregnant women who came with history of urine pregnancy test positive at 56 days of amenorrhea and requested medical termination of pregnancy. On ultrasound examination a bi-cornuate uterus with pregnancy in both horns of the uterus was imaged. Her first pregnancy was a normal full term delivery one year ago. She was not diagnosed with bi-cornuate uterus in her previous pregnancy. She was given a combination of mifepristone and misoprostol for termination of pregnancy, which ended in a successful medical termination of pregnancy, confirmed by transvaginal ultrasound done two weeks later.
