Adenomyosis Awareness

Adenomyosis is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus (the endometrium) breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus (the myometrium). Adenomyosis can cause menstrual cramps, lower abdominal pressure, and bloating before menstrual periods and can result in heavy periods. The condition can be located throughout the entire uterus or localised in one spot.

Though adenomyosis is considered a benign (not life-threatening) condition, the frequent pain and heavy bleeding associated with it can have a negative impact on a woman’s quality of life. Adenomyosis is a common condition. It is most often diagnosed in middle-aged women and women who have had children. Some studies also suggest that women who have had prior uterine surgery may be at risk for adenomyosis.

    Am sure many women don’t know what it is or heard of it before. I had of it not too long ago, some would had been treated of it before but never knew anything about it.
    I believe it’s only normal for us to always ask our doctors what we are being treated off and it course and it preventable and if contagious.
    Thanks nikkyo
