Has anyone been diagnosed with adenomyosis? What were all your symptoms and could you tell me your experience with it and what you're doing about it? Or have done about it?

Re: Adenomyosis

Actually I was diagnosed with adenomyosis this past February. Bleeding started last December (and at times very severe with handfuls of clots) and lasted approximately 4-5 months. I'm on bc pills and even when I'm on my normal week of having my period it will last almost 2 weeks. The doctor wanted to do a d&c, laparosocopy and tie my tubes while investigating. But I started researching and the conclusion I came up with was ... all these procedures will not permanently take care of the problem, only a hysterectomy would. But, of course, insurance won't pay for that until I've gone through all other procedures to try and correct it. I don't know why they won't allow it because in the end, I believe, it would save them money. I'd really like to have a hysterectomy cuz I'm really digusted with the way I feel and bleeding all the freakin' time. Were you severely bloated as well?
Thanks for your reply (and any others). I just wanted to know who else was going through this and what they were/are experiencing.
