Adenomyosis is a female reproductive disorder in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscular wall of the uterus. The inner lining of uterus is called endometrium and the muscular layer I called myometrium. This increases the size of the uterus. Uterus becomes double or triple the normal size. The displaced endometrial tissue functions normally. It grows, thickens and bleeds normally during each menstrual cycle. This causes abnormal and heavy uterine bleeding. There occurs increased abdominal pressure, pain and bloating during menstruation. Adenomyosis can occur either locally or throughout the uterus.
