How to Treat quiz: AdenomyosisRelevance to General Practice
Adenomyosis, the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue within the myometrium, can be a debilitating condition significantly affecting women’s quality of life. It is far more prevalent than previously realised in clinical practice because of a lack of awareness. In the past, definitive diagnosis was only made on hysterectomy.
The clinical symptoms of HMB and dysmenorrhoea are non-specific. Adenomyosis remains an under-recognised, underdiagnosed and potentially mismanaged condition, which is often neglected in the absence of specific tests.
