In other simple words, adhesions refer to internal bands of scar tissue that bond or connect internal tissues and organs. Usually, people are not even aware that they are living with this problem because they do not cause any kind of problem. However, some women do experience severe pain in pelvic region along with a pulling sensation inside. In addition, they also experience blockages of both bowel and urine function.
