Uterine Adenomyosis: Understanding the Condition and Available Treatment Options

Infertility can be a challenging experience for couples who are eager to start a family. One of the many infertility problems that women may face is adenomyosis, a condition that affects the uterus. At Mediworld Fertility, we understand the emotional toll that infertility can have and offer treatments to help our patients overcome this condition and achieve a successful pregnancy.

What is adenomyosis?

Uterine Adenomyosis is a condition where the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows into the muscle wall of the uterus, causing it to enlarge and thicken. This can lead to heavy, painful periods and make it difficult for a woman to get pregnant. In severe cases, Uterine Adenomyosis can cause the uterus to become so enlarged that it can press against other organs, causing additional health problems.

What are the symptoms of adenomyosis?

The symptoms of adenomyosis can vary from person to person, but common symptoms include:

  • Heavy, painful periods
  • Cramping during periods
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Infertility

How is adenomyosis diagnosed?

Diagnosing Uterine Adenomyosis can be difficult, as the symptoms can be similar to other conditions such as endometriosis or fibroids. To diagnose adenomyosis, a doctor may perform a physical exam, ultrasound, or MRI. In some cases, a biopsy may also be performed to confirm the diagnosis.

What are the available treatments for adenomyosis?

The treatment for uterine adenomyosis will depend on the severity of the condition and the woman’s individual circumstances. Some of the available treatments include:

  • Pain management medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen, may help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with uterine adenomyosis.
  • Hormonal therapy: Hormonal therapy, such as birth control pills, can help regulate menstrual cycles and reduce the severity of symptoms.
  • Uterine artery embolization (UAE): UAE is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the blood supply to the affected area of the uterus, causing the tissue to shrink.
  • Hysterectomy: In severe cases of adenomyosis, a hysterectomy may be recommended. This is a surgical procedure that removes the uterus and is typically recommended as a last resort.
