Anyone heard of Ashermans Syndrome?

I lost my baby last February and had a dnc in March.  After my dnc I had a really bad infection that could have killed me if i wouldn't have caught it in time.  Since then my cycles have been messed up.  They have been shorter and lighter and also very irregular.  I finally went to my OB today and got some bad news.  She is pretty sure i have Ashermans Syndrome.  I have to schedule a sono where they are going to put dye in my uterus so they can see how bad the scaring is.  After that i have to have surgery to cut out all the scare tissue and I will have to take estrogen for a few month because it will help in the healing process.  After a few months I can start trying again.  It is so heartbreaking to know that I have been trying for the last yr to get pregnant and there was no way it was going to happen.  It bad enough that I lost my baby and know I cant have one until I have this all fixed.  I am so thankful for the 3 girls I have but it still hurts so bad.  Has anybody ever had this and got pregnant again?

Yes I have heard of it. You are at an increased risk of ashermans with a blind d&c, but m/c can increase your risk in general. I had a saline infused sonogram because I had persistent bleeding after my second mc (1st d&c, 2nd induced vaginally) they found lots of scar tissue in one area and retained placental tissue 10 weeks after I delivered. I had a "hysteroscopic lysis of adhesions" they used a camera to guide them to the problem area and basically performed a d&c. I was then on estrace for 25 days and day 16 started provera for 10 days, stopped both and got a normal period 2 days later. I am currently cleared and TTC

Everything was relatively painless and quick. Look up ashermans.org

I am going to do some research and find a really good ob to fix it because from what i have read most obs dont know how to treat it although they do.

I have already :).  Did you go to a specialist or just you OB.  How was the healing time.  I am so glad everything is going okay for you.  I hope you get your bfp soon.

They say it is rare.  I had only heard of it because i googled light af after dnc back in July.  I brushed it off and figured surely it couldnt be what is wrong with me.  As I was telling my OB what was going on she said I bet you have Asherman's.  She was shocked I knew what she was talking about.
