According to recent study, the occurrence of adenomyosis is increasing year by year, which is typically found in women between the ages of 35 and 50. However, most of the patients even not know that they are suffering this kind of disease. Some patients who are suffering menstrual disorder just mistake that menstrual disorder is the only signal of adenomyosis. As a matter of fact, there are still other signals which could show the occurrence of adenomyosis.
Generally speaking, adenomyosis is a common gynecological disease characterized by the presence of ectopic glandular tissue in muscle. With diffuse involvement, the uterus becomes bulky and heavier. The blood and tissue saturate the site swelling and causing intense pain in the form of menstrual cramps.

As is known to most people, menstrual periods may become unusually heavy in women who are suffering adenomyosis symptoms. In some cases, heavy menstrual bleeding causes blood to soak through a sanitary pad in one hour and can make it necessary for a woman to change her protection during nighttime hours. Adenomyosis can cause bleeding between periods in some instances and may even result in bleeding after menopause. Large blood clots may be passed during this abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding. In addition, during menstruation, adenomyosis typically causes aching or painful cramping in a woman's lower abdomen. This menstrual pain may start several days prior to the beginning of a woman's menstrual period, or it may only become noticeable at the start of menstruation in some instances.
So, is menstrual disorder the only symptom of adenomyosis? The answer definitely is “no”. Common symptoms of adenomyosis may involve pain, abnormal menstrual periods, and tender abdominal area. Specifically, it may include heavy bleeding, prolonged menstrual cramps, spotting, blood clots, longer menstrual cycles. However, these symptoms are always accompanied with an increased susceptibility to cold feelings. The tender abdominal area would enhanced “cold feeling” during the development of these diseases. In most cases of the adenomyosis, the patients are feeling painful and easy to be cold in their arms, legs or underbelly. The “feeling cold” also becomes the obvious symptom of adenomyosis. Besides feeling cold, there are some other signals of adenomyosis, such as painful intercourse, nausea, and vomiting.
Therefore, since adenomyosis would bring severe tortures to patients, are there any effective ways to cure this disease? In the views of traditional Chinese doctors, the “healthful eating rules” would be useful for the adenomyosis patients. In their opinion, the patients with adenomyosis should be more vigilant against the cool or cold foods, such as clams, crabs, shrimps, or turtles. They strongly recommend the “healthful eating rules”, in which they refer the mild food, such as chicken, pork, fish, eggs or milk. In addition to the “healthful eating rules”, the Chinese medicine “fuyan pill” is helpful to cure the adenomyosis, which not only plays a role of anti-inflammatory, but also would improve the hormone levels. With these curative effects, fuyan pill is vital for the cure of the adenomyosis.
