A condition in which the endometrial tissue grows and exists in the muscular wall of the uterus is known as Adenomyosis. The endometrial tissue in normal conditions is supposed to form the lining of the uterus. Some of the commonly observed symptoms are abdominal pressure, bloating and menstrual cramps. In some cases, it may lead to heavy periods. Hormonal fluctuations within the body can cause this condition. This condition is mostly prevalent in middle aged women and mothers of newborns. Diagnosis includes transvaginal ultrasound and hysterectomy.
HOW IS ADENOMYOSIS DIAGNOSED?
The likelihood of this condition increases after a cesarean delivery, uterine surgery, pregnancy and other complications.
