Uterine hypoplasia is the existence of an undersized uterus. When a woman suffers from uterine hypoplasia, her uterus is less than 5 cm long. However, a normal uterus is approximately 8 cm.
This size-related uterine problem can cause female infertility, as it can pose a problem in carrying a pregnancy to term. Usually, uterine hypoplasia is due to child malnutrition and/or fetal malformations.
