These and many more are what you will be learning in this write-up.
While some women may have pelvic adhesions, many others may have Asherman’s syndrome. Both, however, causes fertility issues.
First, you need to understand that both pelvic adhesions and Asherman’s syndrome are scar tissues (adhesions). The major feature difference is the location of adhesions.
Read and learn about the differences and similarities, and how to get rid of them with the best natural herbal product.
But firstly, what do you know about adhesions?
What are Adhesions?
An adhesion is a band of scar tissue that binds two parts of your tissue that are not normally joined together. They may appear as thin sheets of tissue similar to plastic wrap or as thick fibrous bands.
This develops when the body’s repair mechanisms respond to any tissue disturbance, such as surgery, infection, trauma, or radiation, resulting in inflammation.
Although adhesions can occur anywhere, the most common locations are within the abdominal cavity, the pelvis, and the heart.
What are Pelvic Adhesions?
As said earlier, they are scar tissues, in this case, between the pelvic region. That may cause internal organs to stick to one another where the ‘damage’ occurred. These include;
- Fallopian tubes
Now, there are several ways in which different types of adhesions cause the organs to stick together.
For example, the uterus may be bound by adhesions to the ovaries, or adhesions between intestines and any other organ(s) in the pelvic region.
They make your normally slippery internal tissues and organs stick together, also twist and pull your small or large intestines, causing obstructions and pain.
What is Asherman’s Syndrome?
Asherman’s syndrome is an acquired condition where scar tissues (adhesions) form inside your uterus. The scar tissue can build up, decreasing the amount of open space inside your uterus. This extra tissue creates less space inside your uterus.
Think of the walls of a room getting thicker and thicker, making the space in the middle of the room smaller and smaller.
Asherman’s syndrome is also known as intrauterine adhesions (IUA). That is, adhesions strictly within the uterus.
What are the Symptoms of Asherman’s Syndrome?
If you have Asherman’s syndrome, you can experience a variety of symptoms. These symptoms can include:
- Having very light periods (hypomenorrhea).
- Not having a period (amenorrhea) or having abnormal uterine bleeding.
- Feeling severe cramping or pelvic pain.
- Having difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant.
In some cases, you may not experience any symptoms of Asherman’s syndrome. You may also still experience normal periods.
If you feel any discomfort in your pelvis or have unusual periods, reach out to your healthcare provider.
What are the Symptoms of Pelvic Adhesion?
In women, pelvic organs include the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel and rectum. Pelvic adhesions can be painful and lead to all sorts of problems including obstruction and blockage.
It is also important to be aware and understand pelvic adhesions. This is because they can lead to fertility problems if they are in certain locations. Other symptoms include;
- chronic pain.
- bowel obstruction and an inability to pass gas.
- urinary bladder dysfunction.
- pain and difficulty having a bowel movement.
- pain on movement such as walking, sitting or lying in certain positions.
- emotional disorders such as depression, thoughts of suicide or hopelessness.
Causes of Pelvic Adhesions?
Certain diseases can cause pelvic adhesions to form, such as:
- Pelvic inflammatory disease: female reproductive organs can become infected by a sexually transmitted disease such as chlamydia; resultant adhesions can block tubes.
Inflammation can also be the cause of pelvic adhesions:
- Inflammatory bowel disease: a group of chronic intestinal diseases
- Appendicitis: inflamed appendix which can be very painful and dangerous
- Cholecystitis: inflammation of the gallbladder which holds a digestive fluid
- The uterus, ovaries and tubes are more prone to the formation of adhesions after surgery to remove fibroids, an ectopic pregnancy or cysts and after surgery for endometriosis
- Pelvic adhesions also have a higher chance of forming if unhealthy tissue is already present in the pelvic region before surgery
The individual, the type of surgery (major vs minor), the location of the surgery and even the individual’s genes may influence the likelihood of adhesions forming.
Should you need surgery at some stage, you can discuss adhesion prevention products with your healthcare professional.
What Causes Asherman’s Syndrome?
Asherman’s syndrome happens when scar tissue (adhesions) build up inside your uterus, limiting the space inside your uterus and sometimes blocking your cervix.
This can happen for several reasons, but one of the main causes is often surgery of your uterus or cervix.
The causes of Asherman’s syndrome can include:
Another cause could be Infections, but infections alone don’t typically cause Asherman’s syndrome.
However, when you have an infection while you undergo uterine surgery, like a D&C or a c-section, you can develop Asherman’s syndrome.
Some infections that could lead to Asherman’s syndrome include cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
Diagnosis of Pelvic Adhesions and Asherman’s Syndrome
Once you notice any of the above symptoms, then the next thing is to seek help by going to the hospital to see your doctor.
During an appointment, your healthcare provider will go over your medical history.
If you have had any kind of pelvic surgery that isn’t included in your medical history, make sure to tell your provider.
That information can be very important in diagnosing the type of adhesion you may have, either adhesions within the pelvic region or within the uterus (Asherman’s syndrome).
Your provider will then do a physical exam to detect the location and severity of scar tissue.
