Adenomyosis - a serious disease that requires a serious approach is, treatment and relapse prevention. How dangerous adenomyosis? If you do not perform all doctor's appointments, then there is a risk of complications.
The risk of developing anemia
One of the main features of adenomyosis
Symptoms of adenomyosis - characteristic and recognizable
(endometriosis, uterine body) is tsya uterine menstrual bleeding and vnemenstrualnye. Regular significant loss of blood very quickly lead to the development of iron deficiency anemia because the blood is lost, along with hemoglobin, which includes iron.
Since hemoglobin carries to tissues and organs of oxygen and picks up carbon dioxide from them, to bring it to light and removed from the body, from a lack of iron (aznachit, and hemoglobin) suffers the whole body. Woman becomes pale, lethargic, lethargy, reduced working capacity. Particularly affected by the lack of oxygen the brain - there are headaches, dizziness, fainting, impaired memory and ability to learn new skills. This is a very dangerous condition, which no treatment to cure the underlying disease (adenomyosis) is impossible.
Infertility is not always accompanied by adenomyosis. If adenomyosis are asymptomatic in most cases, it does not prevent a woman to have children. If there are hormonal disorders due to excess in the body of the female sex hormone estrogen, ovulation is disrupted
Ovulation - How to determine as accurately as possible?
, Menstrual cycles are anovulatory. In addition, no phase develops secretion in the mucosa of the uterus (the endometrium), which carries out the impossibility of introduction of the embryo into the uterine wall.
If pregnancy occurs, it may be interrupted by artificial abortion because of lack of progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
(a hormone that inhibits muscle contractions of the uterus) and dysfunction of the muscle layer of the uterus. Imperfection of the muscle layer of the uterus and can cause problems in childbirth - they can be complicated by the weakness of labor or discoordination reducing uterine muscles.
Adenomyosis is also often accompanied by endometriosis
Endometriosis - a serious problem with serious consequences
fallopian tubes, making it impassable fallopian tubes for the egg. This results or tubal infertility, or to the development of an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, as little sperm, unlike the egg may well take place in the fallopian tube - occurs conception and the embryo will develop in the fallopian tube.
Possible areas of degeneration of endometriosis cancer
Adenomyosis increases the risk of uterine cancer, as it increases the inclination of the organism to develop hyperplastic (with an increase in the volume of tissue) and neoplastic processes - the appearance of cells in tissues is not similar cells from which they are formed, they are called atypical.
Lots of endometriosis in the myometrium (muscle layer of the uterus) can also degenerate into a malignant tumor. The process of regeneration can occur in a young age with an excess of estrogen, as well as after menopause with a decrease in the amount of estrogen in the blood.
The spread to the adjacent and distant tissues and organs
Adenomyosis can grow through the myometrium to the serosa and move further to the adjacent organs - to the bladder, rectum, abdominal organs. This will cause severe pain and impaired function of the affected organs.
Cells endometrial tissue with blood and lymph can spread to any organs and tissues. The tissues around the areas of endometriosis, there inflammation, swelling, bleeding, sclerotherapy, which causes dysfunction of the affected organs and severe pain. Sometimes endometriosis areas subject to post-surgical scars on the stomach, and so on, making the skin becomes blue or purple-brown, it becomes painful.
Upon germination areas of endometriosis into nerve plexus developing neurological disorders - pelvic plexitis femoral and sciatic nerves, and so on. At the same time there are attacks of severe pain during menstruation.
What to do to avoid the complications of adenomyosis
The main thing - time to seek medical help - the only way to stop the spread of endometriosis. If adenomyosis proceeds with characteristic symptoms, women will be assigned to complex treatment. In the case where adenomyosis are asymptomatic and is a random finding, it requires regular (twice a year) examination of women.
Adenomyosis can produce complications, and about every woman should know.
