    Adenomyosis - what is it?

    I've been having issues since I was young I'm nearly 33 now. No children tried naturally it never happened. I've had alot of pain, back pain, fatigue, mood swings in that area so went for a scan scan of that are the vaginal one ( I've forgotten the exact name) involved a want going where I'd rather it not but.. Needs must and all.

    They're is now possible adenomyosis diagnosis. I get what it is but how is it treated?
    How could it have happened?
    Could it be related to me having pcos?
    I've to see a gyno I'm just waiting for an appointment at the moment, but i don't want the option to try and have children taking away from me by then doing a hysterectomy.
    The pcos has clearly made that hard enough already we tried for nearly 12 years on and off. But I'm also worried about what it could mean for the rest of my health I've musculoskeletal problems already and alot of issues with my back along with severe headaches sometimes. Any help is appreciated if you've been through it. What am I going to expect?

    All I know is what I've read online. Treatments are NSAIDs, hormones or hysterectomy. I would imagine they would start at NSAIDS and the hormones.

    That's all I know is from Google too. But I'm curious what other tests they will want to run and what I'm going to expect 😞

    There is no definitive diagnosis regarding testing except after hysterectomy. However, it can be assumed through ultrasound and MRI.

    Re having children...do the research. You can take meds to lower the amount of endo tissue before getting pregnant...something to discuss if you are serious about it. It doesnt go away and genetics plays a role in its development.

    What were your symptoms that prompted testing?
