    I wish I had found this thread last year! I am worried I have AS after 2 d&cs (performed on the one failed pregnancy). I am so angry I wasn't told the risks (ANY!!) of a d&c. I would never have had it, let alone two.

    I've already posted my story elsewhere, so I won't go into it, but I just wanted to say thanks for the information you have provided here. I guess I'm at the beginning of the journey and praying my inability to fall pregnant now (and shortening LP) is not pointing the finger toward AS.

    Thanks again.

    Saw my OB yesterday baby growth is right on track so GD is not affecting weight at all. Induction will be on 29th May, my 35th birthday! In two weeks I have to move closer to the hospital as we live 5 hrs away. It feels real now a bit scary, I never got the chance to think about labour and pain with my last pregnancy ending in a prem birth, this time around I remember the pain clearly and this baby will be double the size of my last lol

    What an amazing birthday present Petrult! Great to hear he is developing perfectly I guess those nerves about the delivery and recovery never go away no matter how many you have had Will your older 2 children have to stay put for school etc while you are away? Must be tough for all of you xx

    @Danygirl, how are things going?

    I had a d&c with my first pregnancy which resulted in me not getting AF back. After 12 months I went and saw a specialists who basically told me I have ashermans syndrome (something I had never heard of and was never told about when I had my d&c) and will never fall pregnant again. I got a second opinion and this gyno did a hystaroscopy (sp?) which fixed me up and I went on to be very fertile, falling pregnant 1st time each time and we now have 5 kids

    Sounds like you had it very mild ozeymumof5 and very lucky too. It's amazing how many women have or have had ashermans and it is never discussed as a complication before surgery.

    Starf1sh yes I have to arrange my older two to stay in town, maybe the mother in law can fly out and look after them while I'm not here lol, then closer to the date I'll have my 9 year old join me and my 17 year old go stay at my friends farm in town here. I've organised to be 2 hrs away from the hospital at 36 weeks at a friends house then at 37 weeks move into accommodation across the road from the hospital my husband will prob come out a few days before my induction date. So just need a babysitter now in case anything happens before then for my 20 month old.

    Hi Starf1sh. Thanks for asking. My FS was pretty good when I raised my concerns. I'm booked in for a sonohysterography next week. Hopefully that will shed some light on what's going on. Anyone here had one of those instead of a hysteroscopy to investigate AS?

    ozeymumof5, I love hearing stories like yours where people go on to have uncomplicated conceptions and pregnancies after treatment for Asherman's Your story also highlights the importance of seeking treatment from an experienced AS doctor.

    Petrult, that sounds like a military operation to organise everyone!

    Danygirl, great news, hopefully will shed some light for you on whether there are any blockages/adhesions. I went straight to hysteroscopy as I already knew from my previous surgery report that the cervix at least had been scarred over, so it was a matter of assessing how widespread my scarring was. It's pretty standard practice in the U.S to start with a sono and dye study before progressing to surgery but direct visualisation (hysteroscopy) is the most accurate way to tell. Good luck, keep us posted

    Hello, just thought I'd update on my situation... You might be seeing more of me here as the ultrasound I had today showed some adhesions. The doctor couldn't see all my uterus as for some reason the fluid just kept coming out, but she did see some light adhesions in the area she was able to see.

    Quite upset and feeling sick about it. I'm going to go back and read all your stories and hopefully start to feel a bit more positive.

    Hi Dannygirl. So sorry to see you may be starting this journey. Ask anything and everything you can think of. This thread and Starf1sh helped me diagnose myself and get the treatment I needed.

    I will PM you as well with a couple of extra things.

    Xx

    Big Danygirl. It is really daunting to get the news that there are some adhesions, but the extent of it is not yet known. It does sounds like a hysteroscopy is the next step. Have just seen your post on Asherman's Australia FB page as well. There is a wealth of knowledge, experience and support there (and a lot of success stories ) to help you decide on your next move xx
