What Causes Uterine Scarring
Can embedment & removal of my IUD cause uterine scarring & lead to infertility? I had my IUD removed 3 yrs ago. Ttc again for over a yr w/no luck.
Possibly: Damage to the endometrim can cause some scarring that may lead to infertility. The fact that you are 40 and have been trying to conceive for over a year means that you have infertility. If you are >35 yo you should only ttc for six months max. You may also have age-related egg factor at this point. By the time a woman reaches the age of 40, her chances of pregnancy are less than 5% per month.See 2 more doctor answers

Inside or outside?: Do you mean a scar from a c-section or scarring inside the uterine cavity? If inside the cavity, imaging like hysterosalpingogram or saline infusion sonogram would be least invasive. These methods inject fluid into the uterus to outline the cavity. A hysteroscopy can also detect uterine scarring with a camera slipped into the uterus through the cervix. A c-section scar is seen with ultrasound.
Surgerendometriosis: Are two of the most common causes with pelvic inflammatory disease as another common cause.
No scar: The uterine lining, the endometrium, gets thicker during the first half of the menstrual cycle such as to provide a cushion for a fertilized egg to implant. When there is no fertilized egg implanting, the uterus with contractions (cramps) loosens and sheds the inner lining, making clots appear in menstrual blood. This process is not associated with scarring.
