What Is Adenomyosis?Dr Halil ibrahim Tekin
Also referred to as “uterine endometriosis,” is a benign disease confined to the uterine muscle. Endometrial cells from the lining of the endometrial cavity, migrate from that lining, most commonly into the posterior side or back wall of the uterus.
The cause is unknown. Does not need removal when IVF is treated.
How is it diagnosed?
Adenomyosis is often seen in women aged 30-50 and in those who had given birth previously. It is believed that the disease occurs due to estrogen levels rising. Although its not a rare condition, it is difficult to make a diagnosis on this disease. The most important step is to discover and investigate the disease. The most common giveaway of this disease is painful and heavy menstrual bleeding. It may also cause pain during sexual intercourse. Uterine fibroid and adenomyosis can be seen when we receive these complaints.
