Breast feeding: breastfeeding can be associated with the absence of a menses cycle for the entire duration of breastfeeding. However, many will attest to conception being very possible and ovulation can occur. If all the scarring was cleared before this conception, less likely ashermans.

Yes: Asherman's syndrome is a condition characterized by adhesions and/or fibrosis of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) most often associated with D&C's. But since you are breastfeeding, almost anything is considered normal when it comes to your periods while breastfeeding.For some mothers, there may be an absence of menstruation for weeks, months, and even years while still breastfeeding.
