Asherman's Syndrome is a uterine disease that is characterized by the formation of scar tissue or adhesions in the uterus. It occurs most often after uterine surgery, miscarriage or abortion. When the condition is severe, a woman usually does not have a period and it can cause infertility or miscarriages.
The most common symptom of Asherman's Syndrome is infertility. Other symptoms may include cyclic pelvic pain and menstrual irregularities.
Asherman's Syndrome is typically diagnosed through a diagnostic hysteroscopy. A patient’s medical history and pelvic examination also may aid in diagnosis.
The treatment of Asherman's Syndrome requires advanced hysteroscopy (operative) to remove the formation of scar tissue or adhesions in the uterus. The gynecologists at The Gynecology Center at Mercy have extensive experience in treating Asherman's Syndrome resulting in improved pregnancy rates for many patients.
