Causes - Adenomyosis - Symptoms

Adenomyosis occurs when endometrial tissue begins to grow into the muscle layers of your uterus. Normally, your endometrial tissue lines your uterus. But if you have adenomyosis, the tissue begins to implant itself into your uterine muscle.

Adenomyosis symptoms
Here is a list of common adenomyosis symptoms. If these symptoms are happening to you, and you are having trouble getting pregnant, talk to your doctor.

  • Painful cramping and heavy bleeding during your period
  • Passing blood clots during menstruation
  • Unexplained bleeding between your periods
  • Pain during sex, especially around the time of your period
  • Swelling or tenderness in your lower belly

Also, the uterus of women with adenomyosis may be two or three times larger than normal. 

Adenomyosis and infertility
Since adenomyosis can cause problems with infertility, it is important to seek help for this condition sooner rather than later.

If you are concerned about adenomyosis and getting pregnant, ask a fertility specialist for more information about adenomyosis and fertility.
