According to the International Asherman Association, 90% of Asherman's diseases occur after dilatation and curettage (D&C). Abortion is generally applied in cases of incomplete abortions, incomplete separation of the placenta after delivery, or elective abortions.

Diagnosis of Asherman's syndrome

If your doctor suspects Asherman syndrome, he will usually take a blood sample to rule out other diagnoses. It may also be necessary to do an ultrasound to look at the intrauterine thickness and follicles.

Hysteroscopy is the best method used in the diagnosis of Asherman syndrome. In this procedure, the doctor dilates (widens) the cervix and inserts the hysteroscope device from the cervix into the uterus. The hysteroscope is a small camera. Your doctor can look inside the uterus to see if there are wounds and adhesions.
