Would it be smart to get checked for adhesions that may have evolved from a c-section I had 4 years ago?

Depends: If a patient has had surgery, they will most generally form adhesions. This is very true for women who've had cesarean delivery. If the goal is pain reduction, it may be worth have laparoscopy, but if just curious, may not be worth the risk involved having surgery.

Probably yes: You should have had blood work to see if there is a fixable hormonal reason why you are skipping your periods. In general the pill is an excellent and safe way to regulate your periods. I recommend either asking more questions (maybe going with a list or a friend) so you understand your treatment better. It is unusual to do a D&C for a "stuck" period. Usually that can be treated with medicine.

Not unusual: It's not unusual to have some bleeding for 3-4 weeks after an LAVH. There are stitches at the top of the vagina that are dissolving, and there can be bleeding from those healing areas. Any heavy bleeding, though, should be reported to your surgeon.

Good Morning Dr I hope you are well, can I ask, is spotting normal when you have IUD inserted ? Ive had it for close to two years now and this is the first time something like this happens when Im suppose to be on my periods

Spotting: Not uncommon. Spotting can happen. Probably not an issue as long as the bleeding does not worsen or become continuous. An infection would be one common reason to have bleeding.
