Abstract

There are no reports on the subsequent anatomic findings in women with intrauterine adhesions who conceived and delivered after therapy, but our experience indicates that most of these women menstruate and conceive normally. The recurrence of intrauterine adhesions, together with preserved fertility in this patient, suggest that fertility, while usually correlated with subsequent resumption of normal menstruation and anatomy, may sometimes be independent of these features.
