Adenomyosis is a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus (the endometrium) breaks through the muscle wall of the uterus (the myometrium).

Adenomyosis can cause menstrual cramps, lower abdominal pressure, bloating before menstrual periods, and can result in heavy periods. The condition can be located throughout the entire uterus or localised in one spot. Though adenomyosis is considered a benign (not life-threatening) condition, the frequent pain and heavy bleeding associated with it can have a negative impact on a woman’s quality of life.

What are the symptoms of adenomyosis?

While some women diagnosed with adenomyosis have no symptoms, the disease can cause:

  • Heavy, prolonged menstrual bleeding.
  • Severe menstrual cramps.
  • Abdominal pressure and bloating.
