Asherman's Syndrome​

What are the symptoms of Asherman's Syndrome​?

Asherman's syndrome (or synechiae) is the formation of scar tissue in the uterine cavity. The problem most often develops after uterine surgery. In most cases, it occurs in women who have had several dilatation and curettage (D&C) procedures.1

The adhesions may cause:​1

  • Amenorrhea (lack of menstrual periods)​
  • Repeated miscarriages​
  • Infertility

What happens next?


If you cannot get pregnant due to Asherman‘s Syndrome, you should see a "hysteroscopist“ who is a gynecologist specialized in diseases inside of the uterus.

How is Asherman's Syndrome treated?

Treatment involves surgery to cut and remove the adhesions or scar tissue. This should be done via hysteroscopy and by a gynecologist that is specialized for this type of procedure.1

Hysteroscopy uses small instruments and a camera placed into the uterus through the cervix.

The prevention of new adhesions can be prevented through antiadhesion barrier.1
