Adenomyosis. Thank you for this clear explanation!!! My 1st biopsied lap @age 17 dr said the muscle tissue was hardening and he didn't know why!! 2 surgeries and over a decade later my uterus was 3Xs normal size and they finally believed me about the pain. I should have had help or disability!!! Hard not to get angry about something so tangible they tried to make me think was in my head!
Adenomyosis is a condition of the uterus (womb) where the cells that normally form a lining on the inside of the uterus, also grow in the muscle wall of the uterus. Causes, signs and symptoms of adenomyosis, along with how it is diagnosed and treated, are all discussed.
