Adenomyosis is a bodily condition that is characterized by the movement or encroachment of the endometrial tissue into the muscles of the uterus. It means that the two tissues become permanently stuck. Such a condition results in the walls of the uterus growing thicker, leading to substantial pain and bleeding during the cycle or intercourse.
Nobody knows the exact cause, but adenomyosis directly links to high levels of estrogen. Thankfully, most women see adenomyosis disappear after menopause. However, most people don’t have sufficient knowledge about this condition.
