Can a scan detect asherman syndrome. I have had no periods for a while but really bad period cramps usually at the time it is meant to arrive.

Only hysteroscopy/US: Because the walls of the uterus are collapsed on each other and/or filled with endometrial tissue, it is unlikely that a CT/MRI scan would be able to see any scar tissue. In order to see scar tissue, the uterus has to be filled with fluid first on hysteroscopy/sonohysterogram/hysterosalpingogram. ...Read more

I had a medical abortion 1yr ago and i get regular periods evry month but its lighter..Can medical abortion get chances to get Asherman's syndrome ?

Probably not: Asherman's syndrome usually involves a surgical procedure on the uterus during pregnancy such as D&C for abortion or miscarriage as well as csection. This can lead to adhesions in the lining of the uterus. Medical abortion usually avoids this but any pregnancy related issue may cause asherman's syndrome including a spontaneous miscarriage. ...Read more

I was in a accdent , fractured my L1 spine, can the trama have caused Asherman's syndrome?  Doctors said i may not be able to have kids after fracture?

Hard to say: The sequels of an L1 fracture is based upon the severity of the fracture and if there were any associated injuries. Some patients can have a mild fracture and not have any long term problems. Severe fractures at that level can cause paralysis of the legs and loss of control of the bowel and bladder. ...Read more

I had 4abortions. No comp. Asked my dr if I could have Asherman's synd. he says no becuz ultrasound doesn't show anything "abnormal" is he right?

I had 4abortions. No comp. Asked my dr if I could have Asherman's synd. he says no becuz ultrasound doesn't show anything "abnormal" is he right?

Not entirely: Asherman's is scarring within the endometrial cavity. This cannot be excluded with standard ultrasound because the cavity is not distended. Hysterosalpingography would be the gold standard, sonohysterography a close second. Unless you have recurrent pregnancy loss, I wouln't worry about it or do any further imaging. ...Read more

My first beta hCG was 174 13dp5dt.  3 days later it increased to 339.  Is it likely that i will have a miscarriage? I have a history of asherman's.

Early pregnancy: The HCG increase is normal. The next step would be to check a vaginal ultrasound in 1 week. This should confirm that the pregnancy is in the uterus. As long as there is no pain or bleeding, you need no other testing. ...Read more
