Pelvic Adhesions

Adhesions are really common after pelvic surgery but they don't necessarily have to cause you problems or impact your fertility. Some doctors will perform an HSG (hysterosalpingogram) a few months after a myo for women wanting to try to conceive but mine thought we should just see what happened for a few cycle on our own. We were able to conceive and have implantation in my uterus so no problems there for me.
