This is a problem usually found in women between the ages of 35 and 50. Women with adenomyosis can have painful and/or profuse heavy menses.
Some women with Adenomyosis do not experience any symptoms.
Symptoms of anenomyosis are -
Pain in the lower abdomen
Excessive pain during menses
Pressure on urinary bladder
Heavy bleeding during menses
Prolonged bleeding during menses
This condition can be diagnosed with ultrasound and further reconfirmed on MRI. Transvaginal ultrasound shows an enlarged uterus with adenomyotic changes in the muscle layer.
The treatment of adenomyosis may be medical, when hormonal tablets are prescribed. Or there may be a need of surgery, the uterus needs to be removed which is usually possible by laparoscopic method.
