Causes - Adenomyosis - Treatment
Before you can begin adenomyosis infertility treatment, your doctor will want to run a number of tests on you.
Tests to expect for adenomyosis include:
- Blood work
- A pelvic exam and ultrasound
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
If your symptoms are mild, and your doctor approves, your doctor may recommend pain relief medication to reduce any discomfort.
The following treatments may help reduce your adenomyosis symptoms, increasing your chances of becoming pregnant in the future:
- Birth control pills
- Intrauterine devices (IUD)
- Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists
Some women are able to conceive within a few months after completing these hormonal therapies. However, if you are unable to achieve pregnancy after six months, talk with a fertility specialist. He or she may recommend additional adenomyosis treatments that are right for you.
Hysterectomy for adenomyosis
If you are done having children, a hysterectomy often cures adenomyosis. And, if left untreated, adenomyosis often goes away when you reach menopause.
