Intrauterine Adhesions are a Cause of Infertility in Women
Intrauterine adhesions usually occur from an injury to the uterine cavity. The most common cause is a D&C performed for a miscarriage. Much less commonly, adhesions can result from a severe intrauterine infection. Intrauterine adhesions can be minor, or they can affect the entire uterine cavity, possibly even leading to complete cessation of menstrual flow. These severe adhesions are called Asherman’s syndrome.
