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
