In brief: Benign condition
Adenomyosis is a benign condition in which the glands that normally line the uterus implant within the walls of the uterus.
When the uterine lining normally thickens and bleeds each cycle, those glands also thicken and bleed. This leads to excessively heavy and painful periods. The walls of uterus may become swollen, globular, and spongy.
