In brief: Asherman's Syndrome

Asherman's syndrome is when the retained placenta was removed by "vigorous scraping"(d & c) of the lining of the uterus(endometrium) in which the two side walls of the uterus adhere together causing a subsequent absence of mentrual periods.
This also occurs when the placenta "grows into the uterine wall" during the pregnancy and attempts to remove it cause asherman's syndrome.
