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?

I am glad there is treatment as well.  Thank you.


Quoting Angela4boys:

While it would really suck if you have it...the fact that it's rare, and are considering it as a pissibility, and there is treatment... You are very lucky. Whatever it is, I hope they get it figured out and resolved (((hugs)))

Quoting mama91605:

Yes there is treatment.  I have to have the scaring surgically removed. Then she said i would have to be on estrogen supplements for a few months because it aides in healing.  I think the success rate is pretty good if you have a good surgeon do it.  I have found a speciality doc here in town and am going to go see them as soon as i get my OB to sign the release forms for my records.  I am mailing it today so by next week I should know when i get to go see the specialist.


Quoting Angela4boys:

Wow, that's nuts! So what is the course of treatment? Or is there one?



Quoting mama91605:

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.  



Quoting Angela4boys:

I've never heard of it?
