Hello - needing some advice about adenomyosis. I’ve just had a diagnostic laparoscopy which found mild Endometriosis. However during the brief chat after the Op with the surgeon he said he thinks I could have adeno, but he didn’t explain why. I have lots of symptoms - to a greater or lesser extent - that pointed to endo but as I mentioned this seems to be mild. I have non-period symptoms, but in terms of my period these are lengthy, painful (also like a heavy dragging feeling) I clot lots and need to change a night-time pad every 1-2 hours in the day-time. How is Adeno diagnosed; I have read that it can only be done by hysterectomy but I’m still trying to have a family (3 cycles of IVF, 3 miscarriages). I also read adeno can cause miscarriage due to repeated contractions?! Any advice on this condition would be appreciated as it’s all new to me and I’m now very confused where to go from here. How do I get a diagnosis? I will get a follow-up post-op in 8 weeks.
