Can give birth to adenomyosis patient

What is adenomyosis?

Adenomyosis is the appearance of uterine lining in the area of ​​the uterine wall (uterine muscle). About 50 percent of all patients with adenomyosis also have endometriosis.

Here, too, the affected patients complain

  • heavy and painful menstrual bleeding
  • chronic abdominal pain
  • Pain during and after intercourse
  • painful bowel movements, especially during menstrual bleeding, diarrhea, flatulence, cramps, painful bowel movements
  • Pain when urinating, feeling of frequent bladder infections
  • Back pain, often radiating to the buttocks and thighs
  • Fatigue, exhaustion, depression
  • infertility
  • Nerve pain in the lower body and legs

In addition to treatment with painkillers, hormonal treatment with progestogen preparations or the insertion of a hormone coil can be useful. Organ-preserving surgical treatments to date have not proven to be very effective. New methods such as MRI-guided focused ultrasound therapy show promising results in many cases of adenomyosis without the need to remove the uterus. In the case of severe impairments in daily life and completed family planning, removal of the uterus is indicated if all previous treatment attempts have not led to the goal.
