Q: What is adenomyosis?

A: Adenomyosis is a condition where the cells that line the inside of the uterus, grow into the muscle of the uterus. These cells continue to act normally, meaning that every month they thicken, breakdown and bleed. As a result, sufferers of Adenomyosis experience very heavy and painful periods. Luckily with a Uterine Artery Embolisation, women are able to receive permanent, minimally invasive treatment proven to offer long-lasting relief from the symptoms of adenomyosis.
