Adenomyosis UterusUterine adenomyosis is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscle wall of the uterus (myometrium) causing heavy, painful menstrual periods. Adenomyosis is often seen with other uterine problems such as endometriosis. Both adenomyosis and endometriosis cause pain, but endometriosis does not usually result in heavy menstrual periods.
Adenomyosis vs Uterine FibroidsUterine adenomyosis is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscle wall of the uterus (myometrium) causing heavy, painful menstrual periods. Uterine fibroids are muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus (womb). Fibroids are almost always benign (not cancerous).
EndometriosisEndometriosis is a disease in which abnormal endometrial cells grow outside of the uterus and other organs commonly found in the pelvic area. Some women with endometriosis have no symptoms, but others with the disease may experience pelvic pain, pain during intercourse and during pelvic exams, cramping during sex, bowel movements, or while urinating. The four stages of endometriosis are minimal, mild, moderate, and severe. Medications and surgery are treatments for endometriosis. Endometriosis is a chronic condition and there is no cure.
How Serious Is EndometriosisEndometriosis is a common condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the womb and can cause pelvic pain and difficulty getting pregnant. Endometriosis can cause serious complications like infertility, ovarian cysts and may need surgery.
