    Hi Helen,
    I'm sorry to hear AF still hasn't arrived. I also sent you a response to your post on the Asherman's group.

    I'm not sure if a hematometra (pooled blood) is able to be visualised on an ultrasound scan, however as I understand it, adhesions are not usually seen which makes AS harder to identify.

    Hoping you get some answers soon, you are in the best possible hands with Prof V.

    Please keep us posted xx

    Hi Starfish

    Thanks so much for the response and for being there for me

    I went for the ultrasound and the sonographer said that she couldn't locate any pooled blood and I asked her is she able to work out where I am in my cycle and she said it looks like a new cycle is about to start. The endrometrium is very small and tiny follicules are forming on my ovaries. This is consistant to me thinking I had AF over the weekend. So perhaphs as you said Starfish the ultrasound couldn't visualise any blood. I'll receive my report from the GP next Monday.

    I'm so confused right now cause Dr. M (who did the hyseroscopy and then prescribed Provera) is now sugessting:Progynova tablets 4 mg daily for 2 months
    Provera 10 mg twice daily from day 10-day 20 of month.

    I'm unsure if I should take this before I go ahead with my apointment with Dr V?
    and I don't know if I should request my GP to refer me onto someone to have a hsg before I see Dr V? Any advice?

    How are you going in your pregnancy? I'm so unbelieveably happy for you and it's quite strange that our journeys have been very similar but in the reverse!! (if I am infact diagnosed with AS, that is) The best decision I've ever made in my whole life was except my sisters eggs! You brought tears to my eyes when I read what you said to your sister on your BT day, it was so touching and beautiful.

    Default Re: Know the risks of D&C's - Asherman's Syndrome

    Just a quick one, but a haematoma can be visualised on a scan. AS can't as far as I know, otherwise mine would gave been picked up 6 months ago.

    Helen,
    Thank you I'm doing ok, anxious but just trying to take it day by day until scan day but feeling a bit more confident of a good outcome with sis's help

    As for your question. It's a tough one as it depends on the cause. Did he give you a rational for putting you on this? If the cause is hormonal it sounds like Dr M is trying to reset your cycle and bring on a bleed with the combined hormones.

    If it is scarring across the cervix preventing the outflow that course of action will be useless as the flow still won't be able to escape.

    I guess the HSG is really up to you as Prof V will more than likely organise a diagnostic hysteroscopy regardless of any HSG results so he can see for himself and make his own assessment. But if it's clear you might decide not to pursue the surgery? Sorry, not to be more helpful but I didn't have one.

    KandP, hematometra and haematoma, only a few letters difference but different things The hematometra is a specific issue which can occur in Asherman's syndrome and is caused by blood pooling in the uterus when the cervix is scarred shut. But you are right (I did a bit of googling) and was able to find ultrasound images for a hematometra so seems in some cases they can be seen.

    Hope you are hanging in there

    Oh gosh, sorry! I had no idea! I was fortunate in that my cervix was open, it's just unfortunate that i've developed a haematoma while pregnant!

    I'm hanging in there starf1sh, just. Thursday can't come soon enough. I'm getting definite sickness every day, but it starts in the evening. i'm also battling a headcold/sinus thing at the moment. Rice cakes and fizzy water are helping a lot. Trying to get all the supplements down at night is a real trial though - i'm keeping most of them for the daytime now. I'll be 8 weeks on Friday - i just hope bubby is ok. The bleeding and cramping is definitely subsiding, thank goodness, i just pray it stays that way. Who'd have thought you could be terrified by going to the toilet??

    I hope you're holding up too, mama xxx

    KandP, read your wonderful news on the Brissie thread. Little bean is a fighter for sure! I can't tell you how many stories I have read on the Asherman's support group and facebook page of women who have had spotting (and sometimes big episodes of bleeding) throughout the entire 1st trimester and went on have healthy babies. It is sounding very likely that you are going to be in this group!

    For those seeking further information on this topic the following 2 websites have been an invaluable source of information for me in educating myself about Asherman's syndrome and it's causes.

    http://dandcnow.info/home.html
    A website based on providing current medical research on this surgical procedure as well as presenting information from several perspectives including doctors and patients. Professor Vancaillie has been a contributor to this site and his comments can be found under the "Doctor's perspectives" link.

    http://ashermansprevention.blogspot.com.au/
    An incredibly informative blog written by a woman is a scientist and also a sufferer of Asherman's syndrome.

    Thanks starf1sh

    My update is that at 7+6, the hb is 140, and while the clot is still big (3.6 x 2.7cm), it's not active. I'm still bleeding but it's old blood expelling which in Warren's words "the more the better".... it's simply too big to all reabsorb. Mild to no cramping which is excellent. I'm getting afternoon/evening sickness intermittently which is a good sign too. The placenta is thickening and away from the clot. My OB appt is on Thursday and i'm officially a Wazza graduate!

    Hi Starfish,

    I went to see a GP today and she said according to the pelvic ultrasound there is absolutely nothing wrong with my uterus and if there was any blockage there would be evidence of pooled blood. She suggests that I follow my ob's instructions and take the progynova & provera and take it from there.

    She wasn't interested in referring me to Dr. V and she believes I've been googling too much and my mind is clouded by all the info I've been accessing. I walked out of there on the verge of tears cause as soon as I challenged her saying 'I wasn't completely convinced' she got all deffensive.

    I'm so confused as I'm having Ov then 2 weeks later AF pains with no flow and when I asked her a few questions related to that she said 'Im not a specialist but I suggest you see your Ob that did the hysteroscopy for any further questions'.

    At the end of the day I hope she is right but I'm a mess right now and so unbelievably confused. I totally feel completely and utterly unsupported and I don't know if I should see another GP to get a referral for Dr. V or go on the progynova and provera for 2 months and hope AF arrives but I could be wasting 2 MORE MONTHS!!! I have been waiting since August for AF and I'm just so freakin over it!
