Hello ma'am.

Let me interpret your results to you, mainly all the abnormal results.

Starting with the possibility of adenomyosis. Adenomyosis is a condition in which the normal inner lining of the uterus called the endometrium, which sheds every month duri g your periods is found in the muscle layers of the uterus. This can cause various other symptoms like pain and bleeding and complications like infertility, adhesions, etc.

Also noted during the ultrasound scans were calcifications. Calcification is the bodys response to any foreign object present within the body. This in most cases is due to the presence of fibroids within the uterus or cervix, which the body recognises as foreign and deposits calcoum around it resulting in its calcification.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
