For women with adenomyosis, the most common is that it may induce menstrual disorders. The first type is dysmenorrhea with secondary progressive aggravation; the second type of menstrual abnormalities mainly manifest as prolonged menstruation, increased menstrual volume, and secondary hemorrhagic anemia. Patients may have one symptom or both. Of course, some patients have no apparent symptoms, but it may also cause difficulties in pregnancy for women. There is even secondary infertility!
It is precisely because after women are diagnosed with adenomyosis, while thinking about how to treat their pain, they also long for the joy of having a new life.
Is there any way to save the uterus?
There are many treatment methods for adenomyosis. Most patients with adenomyosis cannot accept the treatment method of hysterectomy and want to be treated with the uterus preserved. In fact, according to the patient's age, symptoms, condition, whether there is a need for fertility, etc., there are two options for uterine preservation in adenomyosis: drug treatment and uterine preservation surgery.
Conservative treatment of adenomyosis
1. Fuyan Pill: It clears heat and toxins, activates blood circulation and removes blood stasis, strengthens the spleen and relieves dampness, and its anti-fibrosis, anti-calcification, and anti-swelling effects can eliminate gynecological tissue lesions, regulate menstruation, eliminate pain, etc. Treatment of gynecological diseases and female infertility caused by inflammation. Fuyan Pill is used to work on a wide range of conditions, and any inflammation within its treatment range can be well cured!
Because the main symptom of the disease is dysmenorrhea, according to oriental medicine, "if it does not pass, it hurts", Fuyan Pill is designed for menstrual pain caused by adenomyosis and can activate blood circulation, resolve blood stasis, regulate Qi and relieve pain, so that Qi can move the blood and pass through without pain, and reach the disease directly.
2. Mirena ring. The ring contains a certain amount of progesterone. Progesterone can achieve a contraceptive effect through slow release, which can improve cervical mucus to prevent fertilized egg implantation and suppress ovulation leading to a contraceptive effect. In addition to the contraceptive effect of the Mirena ring, it also has some other effects.
For example, patients with adenomyosis have severe dysmenorrhea; after the Mirena ring is put on, the dysmenorrhea is significantly relieved. For patients with adenomyosis and heavy menstrual flow after using Mirena. The slow release of progesterone inhibits the hyperplasia of the endometrium, causing the endometrium to shrink gradually and thin, and the menstrual flow will gradually decrease. Therefore, for patients with severe dysmenorrhea, heavy menstrual flow, and the uterus itself is not very large, Mirena is more suitable.
3. Contraceptive pill. The main role of contraceptives is to inhibit ovulation and change the mucus of the cervix, make it difficult for sperm to penetrate, make the uterine glands reduce the production of glycogen so that the blastocyst is not easy to survive or change the way the uterus and fallopian tubes move, obstructing the delivery of fertilized eggs.
The mechanism of action is multi-segment and multi-faceted and varies with its ingredients, preparations, dosages and usage. For example, the compound preparation of estrogen and progesterone is mainly to inhibit ovulation, the low-dose progesterone mainly hinders fertilization, and the high-dose progesterone is primarily to resist implantation. The above classification of application mechanisms is relative.
Patients with adenomyosis and no fertility requirements can promptly adopt conservative treatment to control the condition with drugs. In severe cases, a woman with a painful condition without fertility requires surgical treatment-Uterus-conserving surgery. It removes adenomyosis lesions in the uterus while preserving the uterus. After surgery, women can restore normal menstruation, eliminate complications such as anemia, and the quality of sexual life is not affected. For women with fertility requirements, consider contraception for 2 years after surgery.
Although conservative medical treatment can relieve the disease, it must be judged according to the severity of the symptoms. If the symptoms of adenomyosis are relatively mild, surgery may not be required, and conservative treatment with drugs can be used to intervene.
