Adenomyosis

Adenomyosis is a condition where endometrial tissue that lines the uterus grows into the muscles of the uterus. The growth makes the uterine walls thicker and may lead to substantial and painful menstrual bleeding, as well as extended menstrual periods.
 

Symptoms

  • Blood clots during menstrual bleeding
  • Longer that normal menstrual cycles
  • Pelvic and abdominal pain
  • Prolonged and heavy menstrual bleeding
     

Diagnosis

Imaging Tests
An  ultrasound may be done to check for growths or tumours in the uterus. An MRI may also be done if a diagnosis is not possible with an ultrasound.


Physical Examination
A pelvic examination may be done to check the uterus for swelling.
