Fibroid After D&C For Miscarriage


A 34 year old woman presented with heavy menstrual bleeding. She had previously had a D&C for miscarriage.


A Pelvic Ultrasound revealed a 3cm submucosal fibroid. At hysteroscopy she was noted to have a thick band in the uterine cavity (partial Ashermann's Syndrome). This presumably occurred following the D&C.


The fibroid was resected and the thick band divided.


Her fertility was restored to normal.
