Can adenomyosis and ovarian cyst cause each other to feel worse?

Adenolyosis: Adenomyosis is an invasion of uterine muscle with cells which line the uterus: these cells will bleed at the onset of both ovulation (briefly) and your regular cycle. Adenomyosis is similar to endometriosis, and causes cramping and discomfort. An ovarian cyst stretches the capsule of the ovary and will cause one sided pain while it exists. Most will spontaniously break, unrelated to adenomyosis. ...Read more

You have had two pregnancies, so I presume future pregnancy is not in your plans at age 41.Very possibly you have already had hormone treatment including Gn-RH agonist/antagonists and perhaps even Danazol. If not, discuss these with your doctor. If pursued, remove uterus and ovaries. ...Read more
