I had a c section six yrs ago with my 1st child and i also have adenomyosis.I was wondering if i'll have another c section with baby num 2?
HARD TO SAY: Many times a woman can plan for a vaginal birth, while pre-planning for a urgent c-section if a problem arises in labor. Some c-sections safer based on fetal presentation (breech,transverse) others for fetal stress, or maternal condition. If you are healthy and have no condition that precludes trying, the choice is yours. Some would rather plan for a time and just have a c/s. ...Read more

I have endometriosis, adenomyosis and now an ovarian cyst. Past ectopic and 2 c-sections. I am 41. Dr suggests hysterectomy. Is this my only option?
A hysterectomy: is usually the last resort for a woman with symptomatic endometriosis, but that may well be your situation. 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
What is the treatment for adenomyosis, heterogeneous, and fibroids? My gyno put me on necon 1/32 last yr after surgery but obviously that's not working
Try embolization: There are many options for fibroids, but relatively few for adenomyosis. If hormonal therapies don't work the choices are limited. Hysterectomy is curative, but difficult to consider in a young woman. There is emerging evidence that embolization can provide good results for adenomyosis as well as fibroids and allow uterine preservation and at least a chance of fertility. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I am 48 yrs old. U/S diagnosed with Adenomyosis with no bleeding, bilayer thickness of endometrium is 5-6 mm get lots of pain. What else could it be?
Adenomyosis: Ultrasound can't make the diagnosis of endometriosis, it just suggests it. It could be endometriosis as well, which may give you a completely normal US. It could also be worsening dysmenorrhea (period pain) and lastly you still have to consider pain from other structures like the bladder, bowel and nerve pain of the abdominal wall. ...Read more
Same process: The uterus is made up of a thin lining and a much thicker muscular portion. The lining is called the endometrium. When these cells are found outside the uterus, it is endometriosis. When these lining cells are located deep to the lining but still inside the uterus that is adenomyosis. Simply put, adenomyosis is endometriosis that involves the uterus (below the lining). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
