Am female 27 yrs old I have adenomyosis in uterus, l had 3 faild IVF, my question is there is atreatment for adenomyosis?

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

My ultrasound state s heterogenous uterus consider diffuse myomitosis /adenomyosis. With mderate thickening endometrium 1.5cm is this cancerous?

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

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

With adenomyosis like a 5-month baby, is it okay to get pregnant looks like the chance of miscarriage is relatively high due to no space in uterus?

Yes: It is ok. If the adenoymosis is that severe it could affect your ability to get pregnant. But if the diagnosis is correct there is nothing that can be done. So no reason not to try! But if there are fibroids then those can be removed. ...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

Talk with your doc: Adenomyosis is when the lining of the uterus grows through the muscle of the uterus. This can cause pain and abnormal bleeding. Intramural fibroids are usually non cancerous. They can cause pain and abnormal bleeding.
Your fibroids are in the muscle of the uterus (intramural) and on the surface of the uterus (subserousal). See your doctor for treatment options. ...Read more

More info is really needed to answer your question. ...Read more

Diagoned with bulky uterus &bleeding excessively from 1 month (stops with tablets only).My age is 53.what can be the reason &treatment? Can d&c help?

A "bulky uterus": Usually means that you have adenomyosis or fibroid tumors in the uterus. These conditions frequently require surgical removal of the uterus. However, most women go into menopause and stop bleeding around your age. If you can control symptoms until menopause, you won't need surgery. You should have a D&C or biopsy of the inside of the uterus to rule out cancer. ...Read more

Bulky uterus with large posterior intramural fibroid which treatment is suitable surgery or laparoscope plz suggest me?

Bulky uterus with large posterior intramural fibroid which treatment is suitable surgery or laparoscope plz suggest me?

Depends: Treatment for large fibroid depends on a few factors. If you have completed child bearing, a hysterectomy done by laparoscopy (robotically) or open is appropriate depending on size and availability of technology. On the contrary, you can preserve the uterus by doing a myomectomy (scope or open). Minimally invasive is the preferable way to achieve either procedure. ...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 more
