    Thanks @Starf1sh! Head is still spinning TBH. Another scan tomorrow to see what is happening in there.

    Hope you are doing well- I did read that your TTC journey was over, but just wanted to say thanks for all of the help and support that you and this thread have brought to me and I'm sure countless others with regards to Asherman's.

    All the best xo

    How did your scan go @Ruby16?

    Did anyone see the Huffington Post article on AS? Great to see Asherman's being discussed in the main****** media (which is rare!) From my understanding the rate of acquisition stats don't appear to be accurate (5%) but it does highlight the all too familiar story of the difficulties in getting a diagnosis, (especially when your GP has never heard of it!) and the importance of being treated by an AS specialist.

    Hi @Starf1sh- scan went well- as I had thought only two re still viable- but we are still absolutely over the moon at the prospect of twins!

    PS have to agree with your post above too- most GP's haven't a clue......with my last mc I had to see a GP that I hadn't seen before and when he looked at my history his comment was that 'pregnancy was the best cure for Asherman's as it would stretch the uterus and break up the adhesions'........no clue!!

    Hi ladies! I'm so happy to find this thread. @Starf1sh, it is so amazing of you to start this thread and give us so nigh information. Thank you
    I also have lining issues. I had my first missed miscarriage in Dec13 at 6.5 weeks, and then had a D&C for it. And then had another missed miscarriage at 6.5 weeks 4 months later. Had another D&C for it but then found there was retained products a couple of weeks later. So had to do another D&C but this time it's actually a hysteroscopy. Through the hysteroscopy, doctor found I had a septum in my uterus. One month later, the doctor did lap and hysteroscopy to cut my septum. I then fell pregnant again 3 months after the surgery, but it was a chemical pregnancy. We kept trying and fell pregnant 6 months after that, but again it was a chemical. I felt something was wrong, because it took us longer and longer to get pregnant. But up to this point, I never had lining issues, it was always around 8.5mm. Then I went to see another FS and she did another hysteroscopy in July last year. She told me she removed a polyp and also did a currette so it would be better for implantation. We did our first IVF cycle the following month. That's when they found my lining was too thin and the cycle had to be cancelled. I did a HRT cycle last month, my lining did go up from 5.5 to 6.8, and the cycle still failed even with a PGD normal embryo. I still think it was my crappy lining that caused the implantation fail.
    So question for you girls could hysteroscopy cause AS? My period all the sudden got really scanty. I used to have 3 day normal bleeding, but all the sudden it became only 1 day bleeding, and then 5 or 6 days spotting. But I don't have any period pain. Could it still be AS?

    @SophJ
    I am no expert but I think that if the hysteroscopy was not performed by an A lister then maybe not all the scarring was removed or the scarring grew up. Also a curette is most likely what could cause the AS because its the same process used in a D&C (Dilation & Curretage). The more D&C's you have the higher % chance you have of getting AS.

    I had a D&C in Feb 2014 which resulted in retained product and then had a repeat D&C in March 2014. My AF was heavier and longer till October of that year and then all of a sudden they got scanty and lasted a max of 3 days with maybe a light flow on day 1 or day 2. Hysteroscopy in July 2015 showed only minimal stage 1 scarring but some of it was in the cervix. A lister doc told me that cervical scarring is the most likely to come back.

    Since the hysteroscopy my AF hasnt changed, still 3 days and scanty/spotting. 5.5-6.8 is really not that bad. The best I can get is 6.5mm and thats with hormones. I feel as though scarring my have come back to my cervix. I also didnt get regular period pain before the hysteroscopy.

    There are so many variables. You might just have thinner lining with age, maybe the septum wasn't cut properly, maybe the polyp removal wasn't done properly, maybe the curette caused some scarring. You should really see an A lister AS gynaecologist to get a proper opinion.

    Thanks Starf1sh
    Just had the surgery. Still recovering in hospital now and waiting for prof V to come and talk to me.
    Just a quick question, did any of you ladies have bleeding after the surgery? I had minimal bleeding, actually just some really light spotting.
