Preventing the Heartache of Iatrogenic Infertility

Another article from EmpowHER came out today. It gives you all the information on prevention of Asherman's Syndrome. After my complications we did try the misoprostol, but unfortunately it did not work for us. Due to the complications, a D&C was unavoidable, but if they had noticed my retained placenta while still in labor we could have done a lot more.

I have also decided to try and move in another direction before my DR appt in April. My Aunt is having me do some blood tests to check my hormone levels. She feels as though some of my symptoms sound like a hormone imbalance. This can happen after delivery where your body still feels as though you may still be breast feeding(I am not) and prevents you from ovulating. It also causes exhaustion, irritability, mood swings(Mark TOTALLY agrees with this one), insomnia and many more that I have.

I will have this testing on Wednesday and the results hopefully by Friday. I will update you with the results. I will take the test results with me to the DR in April with hope that this may be my answer, or part of it.
