The severity of adenomyosis symptoms and the degree of the illness vary greatly from person to person. Around one-third of women have no symptoms at all, while others have symptoms that interfere with their everyday lives.
Adenomyosis can cause the following symptoms:
- menstruation bleeding that is excessive
- periods that are really painful
- sex-related discomfort
- between periods bleeding
- uterine spasms that are severe
- a uterus that is swollen and painful
- Pelvic pain
- a sensation of pressure around the bladder and rectum
- Having a bowel movement causes pain.
Adenomyosis can be caused by a number of reasons, including:
- Adenomyosis can afflict women of any age, but the majority of those diagnosed are in their 40s and 50s.
- Pregnancy: Adenomyosis affects a large percentage of women who have had many pregnancies.
- Uterine surgery: Having previous uterine surgery, such as a cesarean delivery, increases the chance of adenomyosis substantially.
Always consult your doctor.
