What is Adenomyosis


If I remember it right, I've never had abnormal menstrual flow. My monthly period comes on a regular basis but last month, I experienced prolonged menstrual bleeding. I felt so apprehensive that's why, on the eve of my birthday, I have to see an OB-Gyne for consultation.

Since my former OB is now in Canada, my records are being turned over to Dra. Joanne V. Legaspi. She's also affiliated with The Medical City and Ardi Health Care Center. Dra. Legaspi advised me to undergo TVS (Trans-vaginal Ultrasound) for accurate diagnosis of my condition.

I took the ultrasound immediately. Thanks to my hubby who's always willing to accompany me in times like this.


DIAGNOSIS:

  • NORMAL SIZED RETROVERTED UTERUS MILD ADENOMYOSIS
  • THIN ENDOMETRIUM
  • NORMAL RIGHT OVARY
  • CYSTIC FOLLICLE, LEFT
  • NO FLUID IN THE CUL DE SAC


I've been diagnosed with mild Adenomyosis. I had it long before my second childbirth but, I didn't feel any discomforts until I had this symptom of prolonged menstrual flow.
