Pelvic or uterine adhesions

Intrauterine adhesions is an acquired uterine disease characterised by the formation of adhesion inside the uterus.

It is also known as Asherman syndrome. Generally it appears in women that after having suffered from miscarriage, have gone through a dilation and curettage in the uterus. The dilation and curettage may cause wounds that, when healing, the scar tissue makes the walls fuse to each other.

The presence of adhesions may complicate the implantation of the embryo to take place. Even though these women don’t have fertility problems, they can’t achieve pregnancy and miscarriages can occur.
