Getting the word out

I know I've mentioned my frustration with the lack of information available about Asherman's Syndrome and the risks of D&C surgery. I belong to a support group for women with AS, and wanted to post this at the request of the author. Please check out her website and share this with others. Knowledge is power! This is near and dear to my heart, since Keely's story is very similar to mine.


Dear Fellow AS Sisters,

My D&C website is finally up and running! It's at

When I was first diagnosed with AS, I had this overwhelming sense that I had to do something to help prevent it from happening to other women. I had searched the internet for years and couldn't find answers on any of the major sites as to what was happening with me (WebMD,, etc.) following my D&C in 2005 for retained placenta after the birth of my only child.

After speaking with Dr. March before my first surgery with him in January of 2008, I decided that information about D&Cs needed to be available to all ,and thus . . . the creation of my D&C website. It has evolved greatly over the past year, due in large part to the contributions from the doctors: Dr. Indman, Dr. Isaacson, Dr. Gallinat, Dr. March and Dr. Vancaillie. If it wasn't for Dr. March, I wouldn't have created this website (on so many levels). He was instrumental in spending countless hours with me, editing, discussing, helping me contact the other doctors, etc. The site has evolved beyond my wildest dreams.

I would like to ask each one of you to please forward my website to your family and friends. I need as many links to relevant websites and blogs as possible to help women find this site when they search on Google and other search engines.

This is all I ask, please have people read this site and link to it, so that it can be found by the women who need the information.

Thank you for your support,
