What is Adenomyosis?
Adenomyosis is a condition in which the tissues forming the inner lining of the uterus (endometrial tissue) start growing into the muscular wall of the uterus (the myometrium). These displaced tissues can either be present at one spot or can be located throughout. During each menstrual cycle, these tissues thicken up and break down resulting to bleed. Thus, Adenomyosis can cause heavy and painful periods.
Often the medical condition of adenomyosis shows no signs and symptoms. However, it leads to:
- Chronic pain in the pelvic region
- Abdominal pressure and bloating
- Prolonged and heavy bleeding
- Severe menstrual cramps
When to see a doctor
If you consistently encounter the heavy and prolonged bleeding with severe cramps that disturbs your regular routine, make an appointment with the doctor. Don’t be hesitant to visit Dr. Archana Dubey’s clinic for effective diagnosis and treatment.
