Commonly, people always get confused about adenomyosis and thick endometrium. Therefore, as far as they are concerned, thick endometrium treatment is also suitable for adenomyosis. However, as a matter of fact, they are totally two different entities.
In clinic, the diagnosis of adenomyosis is feasible on pathological specimen examination, while it is unreliable on clinical findings, biopsy, hysteroscopy, sonohysterography, and routine ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. Several patterns of abnormality described on imaging have been linked to adenomyosis, but the correlation is weak and the diagnostic accuracy is low outside of a research context. Nevertheless, the diagnosis of thick endometrium is feasible and straightforward on imaging and expressed mainly by pathological thickening or abnormality of the subendometrial myometrium.
As we all know, adenomyosis is a thickening of the uterus, which is characterized as ectopic endometrial tissues within the myometrium in the uterus. The etiology and pathogenetic mechanism responsible for adenomyosis are poorly understood. It most often occurs in women ages 40 – 50 who have had at least one pregnancy. When people suffer from adenomyosis, they usually have several symptoms, including long-term or heavy menstrual bleeding, painful menstruation, or even pelvic pain during intercourse. However, endometrial hyperplasia is a condition that causes thickening of the endometrial wall, which includes the uterus. A thick uterine lining can make it difficult for women to get pregnant.
At present, there are mainly three methods of treatment for thick endometrium: hormone replacement therapy, hysterectomy and traditional Chinese medicine treatment. Commonly, according to many experts, traditional Chinese medicine treatment is considered as a suitable treatment for adenomyosis. On one hand, hormone replacement therapy may have some side effect on patients. For example, danazol is mainly metabolized by the liver, thus doing some damage to the liver cells. What's more, regularly taking danazol will have mild androgen action on women patients, such as low acoustic phonetic change, small breasts and masculine performance. On the other hand, it is easily to recur after hysterectomy.
On the contrary, with herbal medicine made of herbs, traditional Chinese medicine treatment won't have any side effect or drug resistance. So no matter how long you take herbal medicine, there is no toxic materials produced that would damage liver and kidney. Recently, a new herbal medicine called Fuyan pill, which is developed by herbalist Lee Xiaoping who specializes in the field of female reproductive and urinary system diseases for 30 years, is strongly recommended for curing adenomyosis. The herbs in fuyan pill work effectively and directly on reproductive system and urinary system, to completely clear up infections. In addition, it terminates chronic pain by notably improving blood circulation and eliminating inflammation gradually.
