This condition often leads to swelling and bleeding similar to the regular menstrual cycle but within the myometrium. Such internal bleeding can cause the formation of benign tumors called adenomyomas, adding complexity to fertility challenges.

Causes and Risk Factors

While the precise cause of adenomyosis remains unknown, its development is closely linked to hormonal activities, particularly those involving estrogen. Factors increasing the likelihood of adenomyosis include being over 40 years old, having undergone multiple childbirths, or having a history of uterine surgeries such as c-sections.

Symptoms Associated with Adenomyosis

- Menorrhagia: Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding.
- Dysmenorrhea: Painful periods.
- Dyspareunia: Pain during sexual intercourse.
- Metrorrhagia: Non-menstrual bleeding.
- Anemia from excessive bleeding.
Lower back pain.

Diagnosing Adenomyosis
Diagnosis typically involves:

-A thorough pelvic examination.
-Transvaginal or gynecological ultrasound.
-MRI scans, especially when ultrasound results are inconclusive.

Can you have a baby if you have adenomyosis?

Pregnancy is still achievable with adenomyosis. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) can be particularly effective, as adenomyosis can disrupt natural egg and sperm transport and embryo implantation. IVF bypasses these complications by fertilizing the egg in a controlled laboratory environment and then implanting the most viable embryos into the uterus.
