    TTC with Ashermanís Syndrome

    Hi! Iím here as I need some help and advice. When I was in my early twenties, I had a surgery inside my womb. I think itís the main reason why I have Ashermanís syndrome now. Firstly, I didnít notice anything special, except my periods got too long and painful. I decided to consult my gyny. She asked me to do an ultrasound checkup which revealed my illness. I had a surgery and all my tissues were removed. The doctor has put a coil inside my womb. At first everything was ok, but last week I had an ultrasound check which revealed that my tissues came back. Iím 35 years old and I want to become a mum. Do I have any chances to conceive and carry a child by myself?
    P.S. Is there anybody here with the same health problem? How did you get pregnant? Did you ask a surrogate to help you or conceive and get birth naturally? Please share your experience with me.

    Hiya

    When they did the ultrasound did they tell you how thick your uterus lining is now? It needs to be more than 7mm for an embryo to implant. If it is, then you should be able to carry a child. It would be useful to get an embryo mapping test (EMT) done to see the landscape of your uterus.

    I recently successfully treated a woman with Asherman's syndrome. She is now 10 weeks pregnant, so it is possible. The treatment strategy I used was to use diet and Chinese herbs to increase blood levels, which then means there is more blood to thicken the uterus lining.

    Hi! Firstly, I should say that I feel really sorry about your struggles of getting pregnant. I think you shouldnít give up by any means. If there are any chances for you (the previous poster has suggested you something) to get pregnant by yourself, you should try it. As for the surrogacy, itís really a little bit complicated. My sister has asked a surrogate mum to give birth to her child as she couldnít do it by herself because of some problems with her heart. It took her nearly a year or so to find a surro mum, but all ended well. Now, sheís a mum of a two year old angel.

    Hi, OP! I had to pass through a surrogacy as I have very tough diabetes and kidney problems. My GP told me that asking a surrogate to carry and give birth to a child was my only chance to become a mum. It wasnít an easy decision both for me and my hubby as neither I nor he had a female relative who would agree to carry and give birth to our child. We contacted quite a lot of fertility clinics before choosing the one. However, the result was awesome. They found us a responsible and a very sweet woman who agreed to become a surro mum for our baby. The baby was delivered exactly on time. Our son was healthy, and now heís 2 year-old and doesnít have any health problems.

    Hi, gem. Thanks for your post. Iím really glad about you. We decided to spend some time on finding a nice gyny who would try to cure my synechias. If treatment doesnít help me, I think we should apply for a surrogacy. Could please tell how you found a surrogate? Did you deal with a clinic or an agency?

    Hi, everyone! If I were you, I wouldnít take risks by any means. Your hubby wants you to be healthy and happy. Of course, itís quite hard to acknowledge that you canít get pregnant. But if you arenít recommended to get pregnant, you need to follow your doctorís advice. Though surrogacy seems to be a little bit complicated as you need to find a woman who would agree to carry and give birth to your child, it can be your only chance to become a mum. Think twice before doing anything, hun. I wish you good luck in whatever you choose.
