Phenotyping the Endometrium in Adenomyosis and Leiomyoma

 

WHY?

To understand the changes that are occurring in the womb at a cellular and molecular level, when women have heavy periods which are caused by fibroids (excess growth of the muscle layer of the womb) or adenomyosis (cells from the lining of the womb found in the muscle layer of the womb).

 

WHO?

Women with regular menstrual cycles who are not taking hormonal medication, with fibroids, adenomyosis or both or women with no cause found for their heavy periods
