Terrible

Hi there, I have Adenomyosis. I recently got some blood work done and it said I’m iron deficient as well as my estrogen level is 1165, so pretty high. I already set up an appointment with my obgyn but trying to gather as much info as possible before seeing her. My thyroid was tested too so that’s normal and apparently not causing the issue for the other blood results, wondering if anybody else with this condition also had blood work results like this? Last year these results were fine but now they are not so not sure the longer I choose not to have a hysterectomy could it be changing levels to other things in my body? Thanks in advance, Tara

      If you have a compromised gut then vitamin patches work great. Hormonal imbalances are common and can be fixed with the right supplements, meds and liver support.

      Your iron gets low if from heavy bleeding. Apparently normal periods are like a couple tablespoons for the whole week. Lol. So people with adenomyosis often end up with iron deficiency due to losing blood a little faster than you can replace it.

      If the doc offers hysterectomy, my advice is to take it. They won't usually do that unless it's severe. I've been trying to have mine removed for minor problems for years with no luck. Iron and primrose oil supplements have helped me with symptom flare ups. Naproxen for swelling, cramps, and nausea. Muscle relaxers if camps get out of hand. My blood work has been "normal" for years but the real point of blood tests is to TRACK TRENDS OVER TIME. If possible, I would take a look at all of them together with your doctor and look together for trends and patterns. Keep a log of your symptoms

        @Nemorensis Period tracking apps are great help for that last one
