I am 43 years old, and have recently been diagnosed with Adenomyosis (my uterus is enlarged by 2 and 1/2 the normal size), as well as a thickening of the lining of the uterus (18mm). My Dr says is could just be peri-menopausal, but recommends removal of it. I've found on the internet that it could be due to pregnancies, birthing, c-section, miscarriage (I've had all). I also found info that it could be due to high levels of estrogen. On my own, I have cut out a large percentage of estrogen in my diet, and products. I have also been using Progestelle for about 3 weeks.
My question is, do you think that by doing this, my uterus will return to normal? My concern about removing it is, if it is enlarged because of excessive estrogen and I don't change my intake of it, then the excessive estrogen won't have the uterus to go to, and could create fibroids or worse. Is this correct?
