You're so welcome. [Smile]

Uterine scarring, when it happens, is usually due to conditions like untreated STIs or other infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, or complications for a surgical abortion or childbirth (primarily from poorly performed D&Cs, a procedure often done with either).

Menstrual periods of any kind will not cause uterine scarring.
