Adenomyosis Part 2 (Symptoms & Risks)

Health Tips

Symptoms

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:

  1. menstruation bleeding that is excessive
  2. periods that are really painful
  3. sex-related discomfort
  4. between periods bleeding
  5. uterine spasms that are severe
  6. a uterus that is swollen and painful
  7. Pelvic pain
  8. a sensation of pressure around the bladder and rectum
  9. Having a bowel movement causes pain.

Risks

Adenomyosis can be caused by a number of reasons, including:

  1. Adenomyosis can afflict women of any age, but the majority of those diagnosed are in their 40s and 50s.
  2. Pregnancy: Adenomyosis affects a large percentage of women who have had many pregnancies.
  3. Uterine surgery: Having previous uterine surgery, such as a cesarean delivery, increases the chance of adenomyosis substantially.

Always consult your doctor.
