Adenomyosis- Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

Adenomyosis is the medical complication involving the endothelial layers of the uterus. But, adenomyosis often gives rise to enlargement of uterus. This, may subsequently lead to periods with heavy bleeding and too much pain. This condition may occur specific to a particular location in the uterus or it may involve the entire uterus. Adenomyosis is not life threatening. It is generally supposed to be a benign condition. But, too much bleeding and pain may impose negative impact on the lives of the women to a huge extent.

Major Causes of Adenomyosis

The real cause of this disorder is not known. And, this disorder often disappears after the stage of menopause in women. Generally, adenomyosis is a silent disorder.

It causes a bit of discomfort. Here are some important causes:

1. Inflammation of uterus in the postpartum period

The uterine inflammation during this phase may break down the boundary of the cells lining the uterus. This often gives rise to adenomyosis.

2. Invasive Endometrial Cellular Growth

Adenomyosis may occur due to the invasion of the endometrium in the muscles of the walls of the uterus. Cesarean incisions may initiate this process to a certain extent.

3. Origin of the Stem Cells

Invasion may occur from the stem cells of the bone marrow into the muscles of the uterus. This results into adenomyosis.

Typical Symptoms of Adenomyosis

Here are some characteristic symptoms of Adenomyosis. Women, who are diagnosed with adenomyosis show the following symptoms.
