Thank you for your question on ehealthforum.com

Pregnancy can be diagnosed at the earliest by 10 days - 18 dates after conception with presently available laboratory tests (Radioimmunoassay of hCG).

Bicornuate uterus is the result of an embryological abnormality of uterus during development. Unfortunately, it is one abnormality with highest reproductive complications. However, septate uterus, a variant abnormality can be corrected by resection of septum.

As your periods are delayed only by 4 days, you may want to repeat the test for pregnancy again after a few days. Thank you.
