Adenomyosis is a poorly understood and clinically underappreciated gynecologic disorder associated with substantial morbidity including dysmenorrhea, pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, infertility, and poor pregnancy outcomes. Substantial gaps persist in our understanding of essentially all aspects of this disorder - epidemiology, risk factors, pathogenesis, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. In this article, we summarize current thoughts on future directions in basic, translational, and clinical adenomyosis research.
