    Hi Shuqin,

    Thank you for the post! I have been trying to see if anyone in Sg is suffering the same like me. I had my D&C on Jan26 and since then I have yet to get my period. I was given estrogen meds since March 1 and not seeing much result. Currently with Dr Peter Chew from Gleneagles and he is planning to do hyteroscopy for me on Apr10 to confirm if I do hv AS.

    Did you hv D&C due to MC too? How long hv you been suffering this?

    I have done a D&C in june 2015. Got pregnant again in Aug which result in another miscarriage. Eversince, I realized my period is very scanty and it last for 2 days only. 3 Private Gynea checked my lining and all said it looks ok even though they are aware that I kept complaint abt more scanty period. After ttc for almost a year and no result, I decided to change gynea. Went to KKH and they sent me for sonohysterography. From the scan they found I have uterine scarring. Which Is the cause of infertility and miscarriage. I am scheduled to do a hysteroscopy next week. I am also taking estrogen now, prescribed by another gynea who is against hysteroscopy. I'm giving it a try for one month. If the period is still scanty I will go ahead with the hysteroscopy.
    I am running out of time because I have super low egg reserve.

    Hugs... my lining still thin despite all the estrogen meds that I have been taking I have spotting on and off these past 2 weeks but nothing much, just brown stuff so I guess it's not doing much. May I know why your doctor is against hyteroscopy? My egg reserve is poor too and my last pregnancy was by SO-IUI and I'm 38 this year with no child yet so it's quite heart breaking to found out about this... this is my second MC too

    I'm scheduled to do hysteroscopy at KKH because insurance cannot cover for infertility depends on what the doctor writes. Incase the doctor tells the truth, I can't claim insurance. Private hospital will cost between $12k to $16k. kkH after deduct medisave, will cost $4k plus. Ouch.
    At the same time, im seeing a new female private gynea at Amk who suggest I don't do hysteroscopy because she thinks it's too invasive and may worsen the scaring if not careful. She wants me to try taking estrogen medications to soften the scarring and another medicine to flush out the scarring... something like that in lay man terms. I'm not sure if it will work. But I'm giving it a try. If my period turns normal this month, I may cancel the hysteroscopy otherwise I'll go ahead with KKH.
    I'm also very confused and lost.

    Hugs... I am worried too, if you dont mind can you tell me the medicine names so I can ask my doctor too and request for it if it is suitable for me? I read that an experienced doctor is essential to do the surgery to ensure that it will not worsen the situation but if untreated it is also not good for us ... I am also surprised that it seems that AS is such a uncommon issue in Sg... I cant find anything online at all did you manage to find anyone else in Sg other than me having it?

    The estrogen is Premarin
    The other one pill that goes together at the mid cycle is norethisterone

    Hello. Did you check with your doctor on the medication? My period came this month and still very scanty. Dark and cloggy. I think I'm going ahead with the hysteroscopy. I'm really so scared. There is so little information online to find out who is a good and experienced doc who can perform this invasive op. Fingers crossed. Hope the one at KKH really know what he is doing and can really help to treat my problem. I have no time to wait. Any outcome from your end and what did your gynea suggest ?

    My period came!!! After 2months plus of not having it... it came on 1st April and lasted for 4 days. My doctor was v happy for me too. The meds are Duphaston and Progynova, both are progesterone and estrogen meds to induce lining to thicken and see if my linings are stuck... he told me to eat for 2 weeks check and another 2 weeks... he actually wanted to wait for at least 2-3months and if really no period then do the surgery. I really like my doctor now, he told me all the possibilities and risk and he himself actually write an article on AS for MSF(Ministry for Social and Family) with regards for fertility. Do you want second opinion from him? He is at Gleneagles but his fee is v reasonable, at least you know he is familiar with it. My previous doctor made it sound like its a simple and small issue when I know it's not. I will pvt chat you his contacts yup in case you are interested... btw who is the doctor at KKH you are doing the surgery with?

    Congrats, you don't have to go for the scary op. The doctor at KKH is Dr CC Khong. KKH is going to call me anytime now to schedule me the time slot for Tmr op. I have rescheduled the last 2 rounds already because I wasn't ready. Hope Dr Chew could give me better advise today. Thank you for sharing.

    Unfortunately, I know what is the Asherman’s Syndrome. Our first met was like 2 years ago, as I had a recurrent miscarriage with no explanation. I was so scared! So the doctor said that I have some adhesions and it is necessary to remove them with hysteroscopy. I took the estrogen and antibiotics for better regeneration. After several months I understood that it still nothing happened and I have some problems with pregnancy. My OB said that now the only way for me to get a child – is to adopt one or to use the surrogate mothers. So we decided that we prefer the surrogate motherhood. As soon as we established, my husband said that he knows one clinic in Ukraine, where one the programs cost only 30k Euros. That was an affordable price for us! So now we are preparing the last documents for the Ukrainian Center for Human Reproduction and waiting for our turn! Hope, that soon everything will be ok and we will meet with our surrogate mother for the first time!

    Was diagnosed with this Asherman / adhesion symptom too. Still very lost if i should just go ahead and have the op to remove. Read online that there might be an reoccurrence even if successfully removed or the op might worsen the scarring. @mini_jubilee how was the op?

    Dear ladies,

    May I know which doctors in private hospital in Singapore can treat Asherman's syndrome?
    May travel to Singapore for treatment. I have mine done in Hong Kong 2 years ago & intend to check if it reoccurs.

    Thanks for your help.

    Note: I am not a Singaporean.
