:(I have heavy periods, heavy bleeding between periods, and sharp pelvic pain for the last year. I have been to an OB/GYN who did an ultrasound and laparoscopy to look for endometriosis, etc. She said she found nothing. I have been on 4 different birth control pills in the last year and nothing has helped. I have been reading a lot about adenomyosis (uterine lining growing into the muscle tissue) and heard it is hard to diagnose. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about adenomyosis and if this is a possibility. Or does anyone have any other ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(I'm 23 years old and have only had one sexual partner 3 years ago and tested negative for STDs)

  • Sorry i cant help u, but one thing u should look into is Pelvic inflammitory Disease this too could cause ur symptoms. Pelvic Inflammitory Disease can be very serious & life threating if left untreated........this happened to me.....i just dont want anyone to go through the same, it very nearly cost me my life. Hope u find ur answers & feel better soon ! Good luck :)

  • Adenomyosis was not diagonised for me until my uterus was removed . all my pain is now gone .I an an abdominal ablacia done it only helped for about 2 months then the heavy bleeding started back. hysterectomy was my only help.
