What is Adenomyosis?

Have you ever heard of adenomyosis? It’s pretty common, however, not many of us have come across it. The National Health Service (NHS) state that adenomyosis affects 1 in 10 women and is most common in women aged 40 - 50, only affecting 20% of women below the age of 40. It is similar to endometriosis, however, the cells that line the uterus grow into the wall rather than outside of the uterus.
