Uterine adhesion

When a woman has surgery on the inside of her womb (hysteroscopy surgery) there is a risk that adhesions may develop, which can lead to a cessation of her periods (Asherman’s Syndrome). An ultrasound scan can often reveal trapped fluid or an abnormal lining (endometrium).

A hysteroscopy can look inside the uterus and remove adhesions if necessary. An intrauterine contraceptive device or Mirena IUS is often inserted to try and stop the adhesions reforming.
