Have abnormal bleeding and cramps. Had ultrasound done.Diagnosis is Heterogeneous Endometrium. Treatment?

I recently had a transvaginal ultrasound because of abnormal bleeding, abdominal cramps and painful intercourse. Prior to this 2nd ultrasound, there was a very small fibroid found 2 months prior. The possible diagnosis now is that the heterogeneous uterus may reflect adenomyosis . Heterogeneous endometrium . What does this mean and what are the best treatments? I follow up with my OB GYN next week.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. According to the 2 ultrasound scanings it appears that there is fast progression of symptoms of over bleeding and then leading to abdominal cramps and painfull inter course is suggestive of you should be thouroughly investigated for any ac infection or malignancy.
The fibroid if it is in side the myo metrium, cause changes in the endometrium, and cause the endometriosis, and hence the symptoms.
You may need to have a surgery either fibroidectomy or hysterectomy, depending upon the examination findings.
Wishing for a quick recovery of complete disease, and thanks for calling.
