The problem most often develops after uterine surgery, especially in women who have had several dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure. Other cause of AS include a severe pelvic infection unrelated to surgery, infection with tuberculosis or schistosomiasis. Uterine complications related to these infections are even less common.
