    Starfish, thank you so much

    Well, after my panic I did finally receive a phone call and I have an appointment for May. Which is good as I'm currently going through my 6th IVF cycle and if it's another BFN I don't have to wait too long to see Prof V.

    I had a c-section in April 2005 when I had my DS. All was fine from that, until about IVF cycle 2 or 3 when one of the nurses doing a routine ultrasound noticed fluid near my scarring. I've had various FS dismiss any link to my c-section scar and implantation failure/infertility problems. But I just want to know for sure as I feel I'm getting close to ending our TTC #2 journey (nearly 6 long frustrating years) and I don't want any regrets. If we never have another child again I will feel calm and peace within myself knowing I've tried every possible thing I could to try and fall pregnant again.

    Hi AceofBase,
    It is a less common cause than D&C's but some women do acquire AS from a c-section scar. I have also heard of a link between fluid pooling in the uterus due to adhesions. This topic was recently discussed on the International AS yahoo board (which is definitely worth joining, details in this thread). Many women also have their embryo transfers cancelled in the presence of fluid as it is not an ideal environment for implantation.

    Good luck with your appointment, hope you get some answers very soon (and a sibling for your DS )

    Periods have decreased in flow since last D&C. Any recommended specialists in Newcastle?

    It is not uncommon for lining to be thin for up to 6mnths after a D&C anyway, and hence period can be lighter even without any scarring present. You could ask your local Gyno to order a HyCoSy/ HSG to check for any blockages in the uterus or cervix.

    If a blockage is found or your periods stop altogether I would make the trip to Sydney to see Prof Vancaillie.

    Thanks Starfish. I found your thread great to read through. I really didn't want to have a D&C either time, but the first time the misoprotsal didn't work and the following time it was decided safer than haemorraging at home with kids and noone to quickly pass the kids onto, as I'd had two repeat cases of pph and retained placenta. Sooo don't want to go into theatre again. Af seems to be light for three days and stops at night, starts again the next day, then goes to really light for three days. Hoping it's just building back up again. The bleeding is different too. Am looking into seeing our old specialist.
    Hope everything is going well with pregnancy - can't wait to hear of arrival

    Thanks Starfish. I'm getting more concerned that something is amiss. This is TMI, but I have been getting dark flecks come out, sometimes attached to what looks like lining - have you heard of this happening before? Sorry, I don't think I know many other people in this situation and my doctor is usually very casual and relaxed about things - seeing them this afternoon and have booked a gyno appt for two weeks time.

    Hi LT,
    Have responded to your PM. Any sustained change in your periods are worth investigating when you have had a D&C. Let us know how you go

    I just wanted to add also, that the risks of Ashermans increases with a missed miscarriage and then increases again with the amount of time that has passed from your bubba not surviving and the D&C itself. In my appt with Prof V he mentioned that this is due to infection. Which increases as time passes. He placed me on antibiotics two days prior to him completing a removal of tissue assisted by ultrasound. Perhaps this is something that women who find themselves having to have a D&C can ask for (demand). At least this is a way we can try and help our bodies as much as we can.
