Asherman’s syndrome is a condition in which there is scarring inside the uterine cavity. Classically, adhesions or scar tissue form after a procedure is performed on the uterus such as a D&C. Commonly, Asherman’s syndrome will present with decreased menstrual flow or even the absence of it (amenorrhea). Other times, it may present with infertility. Asherman’s syndrome can range in severity depending upon the degree of scar tissue; this can be measured by how thin or thick the endometrium or lining of the uterus will get.If you or your physicians suspect that you have Asherman’s syndrome, a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) or hysteroscopy can help confirm the diagnosis. In fact, once diagnosed, the scar tissue can often be removed using the hysteroscope. An experienced surgeon is key to curing Asherman’s syndrome.
