Adenomyosis: Adenomyosis is when tissue just like the uterine lining grows into the wall of the uterus. Fibroids are smooth muscle tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. Both conditions are common and can cause bleeding abnormalities, pain and other gyn issues. Ultrasound can tell more about these problems.

Yes: Most women with fibroids do not have problems conceiving and can have a safe and healthy pregnancy. However, sometimes fibroids can cause significant fertility and pregnancy issues. Many women wonder if they should have surgery before conceiving. This is a very individualized decision. Please talk with your gyn or a reproductive endocrinologist. Consider a second opinion before major surgery.

Just ovarian cysts: Every woman of reproductive age forms cysts during her cycles--the process of ovulation forms cysts. Often these resolve/shrink, but unfortunately some don't and may enlarge resulting the "ovarian cyst" many have them and may not have symptoms. Some people have large ones and may cause pain. Some twist on themselves and cause torsion. If you concerns, consult doc. Good luck.
