Adenomyosis

Adenomyosis is a condition that occurs when the cells that normally line the uterus grow into the muscular tissue of the uterine wall. Sometimes adynomyosis does not cause symptoms. But it can cause heavy or prolonged menstrual periods (menorrhagia), painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea), and chronic pelvic pain. Symptoms often improve after menopause.
