Adenomyosis: A possible cause of infertility in women

Until a few years ago there was little knowledge about adenomyosis. What we already did know is, that is associated with heavy bleeding and severe menstrual pain, as well as a uterus with a larger size. Nowadays, thanks to advances in ultrasound techniques, it is easier for experts to diagnose adenomyosis. This uterine alteration can cause fertility problems, affecting the successful implantation of an embryo, which leads to recurrent implantation failures.

Can I still become a mother after having cancer?

Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be a shocking and absolutely devastating experience. Especially for someone that dreams of still becoming a parent by own means. The International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated that approximately 19.3 million new cases will be diagnosed worldwide in 2020. However, we know that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the number of new diagnoses, so the actual number of cancers diagnosed in 2020 is likely to be lower. Cancer has become a disease that appears more and more frequently, with over 55,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK alone.
