Hey I have been diagnosed with adenomyosis too. I am only 25 and have never had a child. I don't have any symptoms and the adenomyosis was discovered when I had a vaginal scan for something else.
My doctor also told me it should not impact upon fertility - but like you I am also concerned it will. I have been trying for around 5 months after coming off long term bbp's. I don't know when I should tsrat to worry - dictors have told me to go back within 1 year of ttc

I think one year of ttc is probably right. If you are very worried you can always get fertility tests done privately x

I'm not worried - it's just this adenomyosis thing - I can't help thinking it is going to have an impact. I suppose I've just got to keep on trying.

I've conceived 5 times with it. I miscarried 4 of them though. This pregnancy is the best one I've had to date. I was told my adeno might have been the reason for my losses but no one can prove it. I think given your age, a year is a fair time to see if you'll get pregnant on your own. There aren't great options when it comes to adeno and fertility, so in my opinion, your best bet is to try naturally for now. The problem with adenomyosis is that there isn't a lot of research and data about it as it relates to fertility. I'm sure you've tried googling it and haven't come up with much. It's very frustrating. I'm happy to answer any questions you have based on my own personal experiences and research. Just let me know. Good luck to you.

Hi Heart tree,

I am sorry to hear about your losses but thrilled you now have a lovely We're NTNP at the moment just to relax a little. It's weird but every time we don't BD at the right time 'i think 'was this the month and I missed it?'
did you get any symptoms from your adeno? I have no symptoms at all and only found out as a result of the scan for spotting after BCPs (which has now cleared up woo-hoo)

And yes I have googles until the cows came home and go absolutely nowhere!! But it is very inspiring to hear of your successful TTC journey.

Thank you

My daughter was conceived with adenomyosis, I'm not sure whether I had it when I conceived my son as apparently it can develop after a pregnancy.

Louliz, I had some symptoms, but not many. I often had mid-cycle bleeding, but I didn't have it every cycle. I did have one month that I bled for a good week mid-cycle and they thought it was a ruptured cyst. Usually though, it would only be a day or two. But it didn't coincide with Ov, so I knew it wasn't from that.

The only other possible symptom is that my cramps during the first two days of AF are pretty painful. But as long as I take ibuprofen regularly during those two days, I'm fine. I know that adeno can cause very painful periods, but I don't have anything else to compare mine too. When I was on the pill, I didn't have those pains. I was on it for 17 years. When I went off of it, my cramps were bad, but not unmanageable. And I never had cramps at any other times during my cycle. The only reason I was diagnosed was because of my recurrent losses. They couldn't find anything else wrong with me so did an HSG (where they insert dye into the uterus) and saw I had a slightly abnormally shaped uterus. Then they did an MRI and diagnosed me. If it weren't for the losses, I wouldn't know I had it.

I have read that it can make it harder to get pregnant. I would suggest that if you are really wanting to get pregnant soon, the NTNP plan might not be the best route for you. You might need to be more proactive. It wasn't an issue for me, as I've been pregnant 5 times, but I did track ovulation and made sure to BD on the right days.

Much luck to you!

Thanks again heart tree. I'm not in a rush to get pregnant atm because we are moving and trying to sort some other things out. I am only worried that the adeno might mean I don't have forever to try (not sure) We missed BDing around my O time this month so I know this month is defiantly out of the question so I've got about another 3 weeks until we can try again
