Asherman's Syndrome: Interview with Specialist Mr Adrian Lower

by 21stcenturymummy on July 7, 2010

Having recently been diagnosed and had surgery for Asherman’s Syndrome (AS) myself – also known as Intrauterine Adhesions (usually caused by d&cs following miscarriage, terminations and to remove retained placenta at birth), I thought it would help raise awareness of the condition by posting the interview with Mr Lower by Sophie Blake.

If undiagnosed, AS can lead to problems including problems with periods, miscarriage and even infertility.

Mr Lower is one of only a few AS specialists in the country. He talks about what it is and what causes it, what the symptoms are, how it is diagnosed and what you can do about it. Here is the first of four parts – links to the rest are below. It’s really helpful.

Hi, thanks for your email. I’m really sorry to hear about the situation you are in . How was it diagnosed? Did you have an HSG? How severe is the scarring? A good starting point would be http://www.ashermans.org/. It gives a list of A-lister ashermans specialists. There are two in particular in London, Mr Lower and Mr Trew, perhaps get in touch with them and explain your situation, they may be able to advise what you should do. I was actually diagnosed after several miscarriages by a different specialist. Good luck, please get in touch if you need any more information.
