Adenomyosis at 40x
If pain is the predominant concern for a patient with adenomyosis, gonadotropin releasing agents are often prescribed as a form of medical therapy. However, studies indicate that shortly after such therapy is halted, symptoms of adenomyosis return in full force. When abnormal bleeding is the primary problem for the patient, a progesterone intrauterine contraceptive device may be the preferred method of treatment. Again, if the use of the device is discontinued, the symptomatic relief provided by the device also ends.
