Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Your concern is regarding the amenorrhea that you are having after vacuum aspiration. From the symptoms, the possibility of Asherman’s syndrome is high. It is characterized by the presence of adhesions and/or fibrosis within the uterine cavity due to scars and is common after vacuum aspiration. Amenorrhea is a common compliant of the patients. The diagnosis can be confirmed by a hysteroscopy, imaging by sonohysterography or hysterosalpingography.

You should consult a gynecologist and get a physical examination done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For an exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
