Asherman’s Syndrome – Symptoms, Diagnosis, Prevention & Treatment

Prevention

The best solution, in ideal cases, is to prevent the condition from occurring, at all. There are ways of preventing adhesions and scar tissue. In the case that you need to undergo a miscarriage, consider a natural one rather than a D&C miscarriage. Most women’s bodies are capable of miscarrying the natural way. D&C is a risk factor that may lead to Asherman’s syndrome and should therefore only be performed when necessary. There is a drug called Misoprostol, which is used for missed or incomplete miscarriage, or retained placenta after childbirth, and is believed to lower the risk of Asherman’s syndrome from forming.

There are systemic enzymes that help the body to break down and prevent scar tissue formation. If you need to undergo a D&C procedure, think about having a systemic enzyme blend on hand for post-procedure healing. Using this therapy after bleeding has stopped, may help to prevent scar tissue from forming and may help prevent Asherman’s syndrome.

How therapy with systemic enzymes works:

  • With the own immune defense system of the body to the moderate inflammatory response.
  • By supporting the cleansing of the tissues and improving circulation.
  • By breaking down and removing a protein called fibrin that leads to prolonged inflammation and scar tissue/adhesion formation.
  • By breaking down the proteins that cause inflammation in the blood, leading to their removal via the lymphatic and circulatory system.
  • They reduce inflammation, enhance proper blood formation, increases proper circulation while reducing pain.

It is recommended to start with the enzyme therapy right after a D&C procedure and is most effective when used for a period of two months. The therapy is suggested to be more effective if started right after the procedure. It is recommended to take these blends on an empty stomach 45 minutes to 1 hour, prior to eating, or 1-2 hours after consuming a meal. Drinking a lot of water is necessary and it is best to take smaller dosages throughout the day rather than just one. The enzyme blends should not be used when experiencing heavy bleeding or two weeks prior to any kind of surgery.

There are some natural remedies that are believed to help reduce adhesions, such as the herb Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus). It seems to increase the phagocytic activity of the macrophages, which reduces the adhesions in the abdomen specifically.

Treatment options

Treatment of Asherman’s syndrome is done via hysteroscopy, in some cases assisted by laparoscopy. Adhesions usually have the tendency to reform, especially if these are severe cases of the condition. Just as there are methods to prevent the syndrome from occurring, there are methods to prevent re-scarring after surgery for Asherman´s Syndrome. Doctors recommend using estrogen supplementation, as they help to stimulate the healing process.
