Why Do Some People With Adenomyosis Have Anxiety?

Adenomyosis is a kind of endometriosis, which is a common gynecological disease. Adenomyosis is most common in menstruating women in their 30s and 50s. However, in recent years, it is easy to find that the age of patients with adenomyosis is gradually decreasing in clinical cases.


Adenomyosis is a benign disease with little possibility of deterioration, but it is a harrowing disease, which is why adenomyosis is also known as "cancer that won't die."

It is generally recognized that risk factors for the development of adenomyosis include age and damage to the basal layer of the endometrium caused by pregnancy and childbirth, uterine operations, and chronic endometritis. Clinical manifestations mainly include progressively worsening dysmenorrhea, menorrhagia, infertility, and uterine enlargement. Some patients may also experience chronic pelvic pain, bladder irritation symptoms such as urinary frequency and urgency, or mental symptoms such as anxiety and depression.

Why does adenomyosis cause anxiety in some patients?

As the duration of the disease grows, patients will experience worsening painful menstruation, increased menstrual flow, prolonged menstrual periods, and anemia. Frequent urination and constipation are also caused by the pressure of the lesion on the bladder and rectum, which seriously affects women's daily life. Many adenomyosis patients are prone to negative emotions such as tension, anxiety, and fear because of the disease and the inability to find appropriate treatment.

In the case of women, if they are chronically depressed or repressed, or if their work is too stressful, they are often prone to the first injuries to the liver, so-called qi stagnation, and blood stasis. The consequence is that it is easier to form uterine masses. Some patients have reflected that if they are depressed, agitated, and repetitive, they will obviously feel that their painful menstruation is aggravated.

Therefore, the symptoms of adenomyosis and the patient's anxiety interact. On the one hand, painful symptoms lead to negative emotions such as anxiety and fear in patients. On the other hand, these negative emotions aggravate the symptoms.

Women with adenomyosis need to eliminate negative emotions to win the battle better.

1. Quit anxiety

Most patients with adenomyosis are worried that the disease may become malignant or the symptoms of infertility, so they are anxious and seek medical treatment directionless, resulting in anxiety that seriously affects their lives. At this time, it is suitable for patients to inform friends and share their suffering with them; consult with their doctors about the right way to deal with the disease and not choose blindly; face the disease together with their families and actively seek the method that suits them and does the least harm.

2. Don't feel sorry for yourself

It is normal for a person to have some negative emotions occasionally. Never feel sorry for yourself. Don't feel that you are sick and inferior. At this point, it is crucial to recognize your negative emotions and then vent and channel them in a targeted manner. Emotions can be transmitted through a person's eyes, body language, and expression, and even unintentional small movements can be transferred. Therefore, you should master the correct body language, control yourself, and not let destructive emotions aggravate your condition again, which in turn affects your life and work.

3. Ease your emotions with music

Regular singing or listening to music is recommended. A study found that singing can increase the number of immune cells in the body, which helps to improve resistance. Listening to music helps to soothe emotions and eliminate tension; at the same time, listening to different music in different moods and empathizing with the music can help to release the bad feelings that are pent up in our hearts.

A relaxed and happy mood can lead to improved health. We hope everyone with adenomyosis can benefit and rebuild confidence to face life with a smile. We also hope everyone finds the right treatment plan and gets well soon.
