Hi, adenomyosis is not much of a problem in conceiving. So you can go ahead with your IVF cycle. After pregnancy also there will not be any problem to sustain it. I think the chance of pregnancy depends much on your endometrial thickness, embryo quality and the blood flow of the uterus. Don't...

I am having a D&C this month and laparoscopy.. my Dr. thinks I have adenomyosis and possible adhesions. I had two children by C Section 21 and 18 years ago. I have IBS and have had adhesions so bad that when my second child was born they had to separate my bladder from my uterus in the same surgery. I am 51 years old. I do NOT want a hysterectomy and I hear that this can go away after menopause (whereas hysterectomy is forever).. when I consult with my Dr. before any other surgery I need to know about other options. Will abalation work for this situation? Will anti-inflammatory herbs/meds help? And is thirst related to this? I have been very thirsty at times! Also, please let me know of other ways to treat this that are successful.. none surgical is best. What should I avoid..

Hi I recently had a pelvic sonogram which indicated: 1. There are at least 8 to 10 subcentimeter follicles within the right ovary. 2. The myometrium is markedly heterogeneous with increased vascularity on color flow imaging as well as tiny cystic areas consistent with adenomyosis. What does this mean?

doctor1 MD

Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

According to reports there are at least 8-10 follicles in right ovary measuring less than 1cm.
Your uterus is heterogeneous in echo texture with increased vascularity and most likely it is due to adenomyosis which is characterized by the presence of ectopic...

My wife, aged 36 years is suffering from Adenomyosis for the last 2 - 3 years and is having severe & debilitating pains in every Menstrual cycle!! She is totally bedridden for 3 days in a month. Presently managing with anti-spasmodics and sometimes even IV s of anti-spasmodics!! Our Gynaecologist s opinion is to go for IUD Merina s insertion to prevent the pain. She is sceptical about having this foreign object inside her uterus and their side effects!! But I cannot see her suffer like this every month!! Could any of you give me their experiences about the side effect of IUD and its safety issues in their experience?? That would be of great help. We have 2 kids aged 10 & 8 years old, she had normal deliveries. No know allergies or surgeries have been done. She had a history of Allergic Dermatitis and TMJ about couple of years earlier.

I had a robotic assist hysterectomy with a vaginal uterine removal done 6 days ago. Large fibroids interiorly and exteriorily as well as adenomyosis . I have deep strong bowel pain as the stool moves through part of the small intestine and then several hours later as it reaches the distal end of the descending colon and makes the turn to the rectum. No trouble passing stool nor constipation a few minutes later. Urge to defecate is fine and amount of stool is low normal. Is pain due to bruising of intestines? Will this pass soon? It almost feels as if the intestines are deeply bruised and muscle motion hurts as it passes through the bruised area. This is not a small pain. These are deep and strong pain waves. I have a high pain tolerance so I know it really hurts.
