What is andometriosis?


Answer by  milo (169)

I think you mean adenomyosis, which is where the lining of the uterus grows into the uterine wall. It is most common in women 35-50.

The correct spelling is "endometriosis". It's when the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus, grows outside of the uterus. It can grow on the uterus itself, the intestines, bladder, or other internal organs. When the lining attempts to shed each month it becomes very painful.

Andometriosis also know as Adenomyosis is a condition where the endometrial tissue that lines the uterus invades the muscular walls of the uterus.


Answer by  Joe28 (17)

Endometriosis is a condition in which the cells that usually make up the inner lining of the uterus appear and flourish outside of the uterus. It can cause moderate to extreme pain. While there is no cure, there are several treatments available, which can be discussed with a doctor or other health expert.

You seem to be concerned about endometriosis. In this condition, pieces of the normal uterine lining attach and grow on areas outside their normal place inside the uterus. This can include the fallopian tubes, intestines, and other organs. It can cause irregular and heavy periods and intense pain.

endo and adenomyosis are different things according to my doctor


Answer by  Anonymous

Andometriosis or adenomyosis is contained within the uterus itself, endometriosis concerns the whole pelvic region. But both mean the lining grows in the wrong areas.
