Uterine adhesions are areas in which scar tissue causes parts of the uterine wall to stick together. They can form after a dilation and curettage (D and C) procedure, miscarriage, or surgical treatment for a gynecologic condition such as bleeding that continues after childbirth or the removal of uterine polyps or fibroid tumors. While usually without noticeable symptoms, in some cases, uterine adhesions can make it difficult for a woman to get pregnant or carry a baby to full-term. These adhesions can be removed via a hysteroscopy procedure or laparoscopy. In addition, hormone medications and NSAIDs may be prescribed to keep adhesions from re-forming. In some cases, a uterine catheter may be put in place following adhesion removal in order to keep the surfaces apart during the healing process.
