Answer

Iatrogenically induced uterine injury from aggressive curettage might lead to intrauterine synechiae or Asherman syndrome. Affected patients might be rendered infertile or placed at high risk for spontaneous abortion in the future. For this reason, always consider medical management of AUB prior to surgical intervention.
