No: Endometrial glandular development interdigitating within the uterine musculature enlarges the uterus and can cause heavy menstrual bleeding due to a "wringing out the sponge effect" at the time of the period. There is no known "cure" for this condition except hysterectomy at this time. ...Read more

Easy To Find Out: Adenomyosis (endometriosis interna) is simply endometrial glands that are in the muscle layer of the uterus. It can cause heavier, irreg bleeding & more painful menses (menometrorrhagia & dysmenorrhea). Your us may simply be reflecting this finding. However, abnormal bleeding can also signify endometrial hyperplasia (pre-cancerous) or worse and at a minimum a biopsy (emb) is recommended. Take care. ...Read more

Biopsy good idea: Just because there is concern for Adenomyosis and the endometrium is 3 mm's, Endometrial or Tubal CA can easily cause post menopausal bleeding. The endometrial biopsy will tell the MD and you what NOT to consider as to the cause of the bleeding which is far more important right now then what IS causing the bleeding. ...Read more

Does progesterone make the uterus muscle abnormal in women with adenomyosis ?

Does progesterone make the uterus muscle abnormal in women with adenomyosis ?

No.: Progesterone is personally my favorite hormone in that there is a lesser risk for blood clots, and it helps smoothen and thin out your endometrial lining so that it may perhaps help improve with the heavy bleeding you may be experiencing. The only way to confirm (with 100% confidence) adenomyosis by the way is after a hysterectomy (removal of uterus). Mri/other imaging tests may only suggest it. ...Read more

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

Ultrasound or MRI?: Usually nothing if you have no abnormal bleeding or pain. An enlarged uterus can be normal after childbirth (dimensions?), and adenomyosis is simply endometrium (uterine lining) growing into the muscular layer (also called endometriosis interna). Both may be normal for you & can be followed by ultrasound along with your renal cyst. See your doc if you are having problems & good luck. ...Read more
