April 2, 2018 // Posted in: Advocacy, Featured

Adenomyosis is a painful and complex gynecological condition that is not well understood, can be difficult to detect, and can only be cured by hysterectomy. Adenomyosis develops when cells from the endometrial lining of the uterus grow into the muscle of the uterus.

Inflammation leads to pain (sometimes debilitating), heavy bleeding, and enlargement of the uterus.

Pain during sex can be an indication of a complex GYN condition like fibroids, endometriosis, or adenomyosis. While there are other conditions that can cause painful intercourse, for these treatable conditions, laparoscopic GYN surgery can often improve a woman’s ability to have sex.

Many women are concerned about surgery negatively affecting their sex lives after recovery. If performed as a laparoscopic procedure by advanced-trained GYN specialists, treating these conditions can help women by reducing or eliminating pain from the conditions themselves, and once recovered, women often become more active and get back to living their lives, including enjoying intimacy.
