Adenomyosis vs. Endometriosis Topic Guide

Adenomyosis vs. Endometriosis Adenomyosis vs. Endometriosis: Uterine adenomyosis causes the inner lining of the uterus to grow into the muscle wall of the uterus (myometrium) causing heavy, painful menstrual periods. Adenomyosis is often seen with other uterine problems such as endometriosis. In endometriosis, endometrial cells (the lining of the uterus) grow outside of the uterus. Both adenomyosis and endometriosis cause pain, but endometriosis does not usually result in heavy menstrual periods.
