What is Adenomyosis?

Adenomyosis, (ad-en-oh-MY-oh-sis) is a condition where endometrial glands and supporting tissues are found in the muscular wall of the uterus where it would not occur normally.

Adenomyosis is also called: endometriosis interna, uterine endometriosis, endometriosis of the uterus, and internal endometriosis.

Adenomyosis is a disease that is closely related to endometriosis. Endometriosis is a disease where the cells that normally line the inside of the uterus and are shed during menstruation, become implanted and grow outside of the uterus. Adenomyosis may also be found in women who have already been diagnosed with endometriosis. It usually occurs in the posterior wall of the uterus.

Symptoms of Adenomyosis

The most common symptoms of adenomyosis are: abnormal uterine bleeding, large uterus (uterus is often 2-3 times the normal size), and pelvic pain during menstruation.

Note: In many cases, the woman may not have any symptoms.

How does Adenomyosis occur?

Adenomyosis occurs when the old tissue and blood cannot escape the uterine muscle and flow out of the cervix as part of normal menses.

What causes Adenomyosis?

The exact cause of adenomyosis is unknown.

Adenomyosis Treatments
