What is adenomyosis?
The cause of adenomyosis is not well understood. Some researchers believe
that previous surgeries on the uterus (including
Cesarean births) can cause the
endometrial (uterine lining) cells to spread and grow in an abnormal location
(the muscular layer of the uterine wall). Another possibility is that
adenomyosis arises from tissues in the uterine wall itself that may have been
deposited there during development of the uterus.
