Symptoms of Uterine Adhesions | Laguna Hills & Orange County CA

Uterine adhesions can be defined as bands of scar tissue that might cause internal organs to stick to one another. Below are some of the symptoms of uterine adhesions

  • No period or light periods 
  • Regular pelvic pain
  • Intense menstrual cramping
  • Repeated miscarriage
  • Complications getting pregnant

Procedure for Treating Uterine Adhesions

Our specialists start the procedure by taking an X-ray of your pelvis. We will perform a pelvic ultrasound and an ultrasound with sterile water. Our specialist might also perform a hysteroscopy to examine the uterine lining and check for adhesions. 

Furthermore, our specialist will insert a flexible, thin, lighted telescope into your vagina and through your cervix during our hysteroscopy; this helps our specialist to view the inside of your uterus instantly. We might also perform a transvaginal ultrasound to evaluate how thick your endometrium is. 

Additionally, our specialist will perform a biopsy of the uterine lining to check whether you still have normal endometrial tissue. If your uterine adhesions are not causing you pain and you do not plan on getting pregnant, our experienced team might suggest that you do not undergo any treatment. We will also enlighten you about your options and the implications of not treating. 

At our practice, we treat adhesions of the uterus by breaking up the scar tissue and preventing scar tissue from rebuilding in its place. Our specialist might perform hysteroscopic lysis of adhesions to remove the scar tissue; this is an outpatient procedure. Our specialist uses a hysteroscope to view the lining of the uterus and disturb the present scar tissue. If the scar tissue is meager and dainty, our specialist might be able to use the hysteroscope itself to break it apart. If it is hugely denser, we will use surgical scissors.
