August 3, 2013
How to treat uterine adenomyosis? The choice of treatment depends on the patient's age, presence of symptoms persist, the presence of other diseases (often in women with adenomyosis diagnosed as endometriosis or uterine fibroids), general health, and whether, if the patient plans to have children in the future.
For the diagnosis of adenomyosis
Adenomyosis - diagnosis endometrioid lesions of the uterus
most commonly used ultrasound, but with his help differentiate adenomyosis from fibroids is quite difficult. Sometimes doctors give a final diagnosis only after surgical removal of tumors in the uterus.
Drug treatment of uterine adenomyosis
- Painkillers are usually prescribed to women suffering from painful menstruation, but does not want to take hormonal drugs or resort to other methods of treatment. Often doctors recommend this drug as mefenamic acid. It not only relieves pain, but also to some extent normalize menstrual bleeding, which in adenomyosis are very heavy and prolonged. Receiving painkillers are usually the preferred method for the symptomatic treatment of women who have plan to have children.
- Hormonal treatments. For the treatment of adenomyosis
Adenomyosis - treatment should be individualized
use combined hormonal contraceptives, intrauterine devices (eg, Mirena) and progestin-only contraceptives. If you are using Mirena for three years in 72% of patients had relief of symptoms of adenomyosis
Adenomyosis: Symptoms - what to expect from the body?
- Agonists of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). These drugs effectively weaken menstrual pain and eliminate other symptoms of adenomyosis, but long-term use may cause osteoporosis and severe hot flashes.
Surgical treatment of uterine adenomyosis
- Endometrial ablation or transcervical resection of the endometrium
Such an operation can be assigned to women with adenomyosis has led to strong menstrual bleeding that can not be normalized using medications. After surgery, 70% of patients return to normal menstrual bleeding, 30-50% are pain during menstruation. However, in some cases, surgery does not give positive results, and repeat the operation seems futile. Because such patients are usually drug therapy does not help, the only effective treatment for them is often gisteerktomiya, or surgical removal of the uterus.
- Laparoscopic prostatectomy
This operation is similar to the one that is used to remove uterine fibroids. It is usually prescribed to women with very severe pain caused by adenomyosis
Adenomyosis - avoid constant stress
Which, however, do not want to do a hysterectomy - usually due to the fact that they plan to have children in the future. However, due to the nature of laparoscopic prostatectomy surgery is not always possible to completely remove the affected tissue adenomyosis, because of what the symptoms over time may reappear. Many doctors prescribe after surgery patients receiving GnRH agonists. After a course of treatment lasting several months, the risk of recurrence is significantly reduced.
Fertility after treatment of uterine adenomyosis
There is evidence (still very few), indicating that the treatment of adenomyosis (with the help of medication or conservative surgery) may increase the chance of pregnancy. Many women are able to get pregnant after the treatment; in most cases, babies were born at term, although some patients pregnancy proceeded with serious complications.
Hysterectomy may be recommended for women who do not want to have children in the future, and that adenomyosis causes very severe symptoms do not respond to any other treatment. Because after a hysterectomy in women menstruation can not be terminated causes them pain. However, if pain were not associated with the menstrual cycle, they can continue after surgery.
Uterine artery embolization
This procedure may in many cases be an alternative to hysterectomy. Approximately 70% of patients who underwent uterine artery embolization, are satisfied with the result. In addition, embolization is relatively safe, and recovery after it takes less time than after a hysterectomy.
