Hysterectomy: Adenomyosis is endometriosis in the wall of the uterus. Symptoms of adenomyosis can include heavy bleeding, severe dysmenorrhea, pain with intercourse, and uterine enlargement. Sometimes the sypmtoms of adenomyosis are treatable with oral contraceptives and over the counter pain medications, but the definitive treatment is hysterectomy.

Several: Adenomyosis, which occurs when the cells lining the inside of your uterus find their way among uterine muscle cells, if it causes a problem, causes excessive bleeding and menstrual pain. Often treated successfully medically (birth control pills, tranexamic acid, nonsteroidals), but just as often requires surgery. Surgery can range from endometrial ablation to hysterectomy. See your obgyn.

Symptoms or surgery: Adenomyosis is a condition in which the gland cells of the lining of the uterus get into the muscle layer of the uterus. It can cause heavy, painful periods, pelvic pain and pain with sex. The treatments are trying to control symptoms with birth control pills or other hormones or removal of the uterus.

Perhaps UAE : Uterine artery embolization (uae) can be performed to relieve symptoms in women with adenomyosis. While definitive treatment is hysterectomy, i assume because you were 41 and single you were looking for non-surgical approach. Success rate for uae with adenomyosis is not as high as it is for uterine fibroids (70% vs. 92%), however that is still very respectable and may allow you to avoid surgery.
