Hi Dr Mia Lundi,
I'm XXXXXX from singapore, 35 year old and have been marriaged for 10 years.
I have been diagnosed with adenomyosis since 4 years ago and have done 2x key hole surgical operation & tried 2x IVF for conceive but failed.
Recently, i went for a scan and reported having enlarged uteruis, adenomyosis & adenomyoma in posterior wall, a fibriod in fundo anterior wall with
RO - few cysts of 10 - 13mm
LO - 55mm endometriotic cyst

Having all these diagnosed syndrome, is there any hope with pregnancy for me or any specific treatment can be done?

Rdgs, XXXXXX

Dear XXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

I have read your query in detail and I understand your concerns. I would like to address your problem in detail especially in view of adenomyosis & fibroids. Before that I would like to know following details.
1) Number & Size of follicles in both ovaries apart from cysts.
2) Results of any hormonal blood tests like Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), Antimulllerian Hormone (AMH), etc., done recently.

If you have these details, kindly provide them as they will immensely help me to address your concerns better.

Awaiting your response

Hi XXXXXX thanks for detailed reply.

I am afraid I have more of bad news. As your results read and within my experience in this sub specialty I feel that your uterus has severe degree of adenomyosis. It is complicated further by fibroids.

I presume this could be reason for failed Invitro Fertilization. Further anymore IVF are also likely to fail. Hence I suggest you might have to go for alternatives like surrogate if your follicles are good enough to get fertilized and form embryo.

I am available for any more queries you have
