Learn more: https://healthery.com/health/adenomyosis/ This video aims to answer the question ‘What is Adenomyosis?’ The video will address symptoms, causes, treatment options and possible prevention methods. Adenomyosis is a medical condition in which the endometrium breaks through the uterus, causing heavy menstrual cramping and bleeding. Women with Adenomyosis might experience bloating, long-lasting periods, and severe cramps. While Adenomysosis is not actively harmful, it can become extremely painful, lowering the patient’s quality of life. Adenomyosis is a common condition that usually occurs in middle-aged women who’ve experienced childbirth. However, it can occur in anyone, and a woman with a family history of Adenomyosis is at more risk than one who does not. It can be discovered through MRI or ultrasound imaging, and treatments include medication, hormone therapy, and endometrial ablation. Endometrial ablation involves removal of the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. If the symptoms are mild, they can be solved with mild painkillers and muscle relaxers. More invasive methods of treatment can be used if symptoms persist. In women with persistent, significant symptoms, a hysterectomy may be required. Unless you remove the uterus entirely, there is no definitive cure for Adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is very similar to endometriosis. Like endometriosis, Adenomyosis might be a contributing factor to certain cases of infertility. To learn more about Adenomyosis, watch this healthery.com video.
