What Is Adenomyosis?

An issue with the female reproductive system called adenomyosis in which the uterus enlarges and thickens. The uterine wall’s inside is lined by endometrial tissue (endometrium). When this tissue penetrates the myometrium, the uterus’s outer muscle walls, adenomyosis results. This additional tissue might result in the uterus growing by two or three times its original size, which can cause irregular uterine flow and uncomfortable periods.

Many women aren’t aware they have adenomyosis because the condition doesn’t always cause symptoms. The condition may affect 20% to 65% of females.
