What are the symptoms of pelvic adhesions?


Adhesions can form when the abdomen is injured because of disease or surgery. Adhesions are bands of connective tissue that may form between abdominal organs (uterus, fallopian tubes , ovaries, or bowel) and/or between these organs and also the wall of the abdomen.


Depending on their location, adhesions may make it difficult for one to get pregnant or can cause bowel obstruction or pain. Your doctor might suspect you have adhesions if you experience any of these conditions. To diagnose and treat adhesions Laparoscopic surgery is required.


Appendicitis, colon inflammation, and gallbladder inflammation are quite uncommon causes of infertility because of adhesions. The further your disease has progressed, the more severe the adhesions will be.


Surgery on the ovaries uterus or tubes can cause adhesions. Any surgery can cause adhesions but is more likely after traditional or open surgery than after minimally invasive surgery or laparoscopy. Minimally invasive surgery may cause less tissue damage because the surgeon only makes a couple of small openings and uses a camera to look at your internal organs and abdomen.


Adhesions that form on a woman’s ovaries or fallopian tubes are more likely to cause infertility. Women with adhesions in or around their Fallopian tubes have a greater risk of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, which is a pregnancy that develops outside the uterus (womb).


Adhesions that form within the womb can lead to infertility and repeated miscarriages. Adhesions involving the small intestine (bowel) can partially or completely block your bowels (bowel obstruction), adhesions are the most common cause of bowel obstruction.


Symptoms and Conditions Caused by Pelvic Adhesions


Adhesions may cause pain within the abdomen or pelvis, particularly if they cause organs to move from their normal location or if they become fixed (stuck) in an abnormal location.


Blocked fallopian tubes– Blocked fallopian tubes are the most common form of infertility caused by adhesions. Adhesions wrap around delicate structures inside the reproductive tract prevents the reproductive system from working normally.


Hydrosalphynx– Another common tubal blockage is a hydrosalpinx. This occurs when fluid collects within the Fallopian tube – generally because of an infection. As adhesions form at the end of the tube close to the ovary the tube swells, hydrosalpinx usually indicates a totally blocked tube.


Unexplained infertility –Most diagnostic tests do not reveal adhesions, exploratory surgery is required in order to verify that a patient has adhesions. Unfortunately, most patients are unaware of adhesion this could the reason in women affected by unexplained infertility.


Previous surgery – Surgeries are sometimes necessary to save a woman’s life, as in the case of an appendectomy. In the case of undiagnosed pain, a doctor may suggest doing exploratory surgery to directly visualize the pelvic contents. Because adhesions form after most pelvic surgeries, the very surgery to correct a problem may be the reason for adhesion formation as the body heals.

• Chronic pain - Common descriptions we hear from patients affected by adhesions are they feel the abdomen tight, immobile, constantly uncomfortable. Because adhesions bind to structures and build constant tension, it's no wonder why so many patients with adhesions also suffer from chronic pain.

• Adhesions that partially block the intestine -If the bowel becomes strangulated, people typically develop severe abdominal pain, which can be either crampy or constant, Nausea and vomiting, Swelling of the abdomen, inability to pass gas, infrequent bowel movements, and absent bowels.
