Diagnosed With Adenomyosis at 21 years old

Yesterday I was diagnosed with adenomyosis, I am currently 21 years old and in may 2011 I had a miscarrage that ended in a dnc. Ever since my surgery my periods have not been the same, I begun to bleed in between periods or go a month or 2 with out a period also have had sharp pains. I had an ultra sound on dec.17 2012 and was told that i had adenomyosis based on my ultra sound results, I had blood work done also but that is all the tests i was given. My doctor was not helpful what so ever, he told me i had adenomyosis and that it would not affect my chances of getting pregnant again, but it will never go away and that i need to go on birth control pills, and to go home and research adenomyosis. my first question is could it be a possibility that i had been misdiagnose? Should I get more tests done? If so what kind of tests? I read about uterine fibriods and I must admit I have more of those syptoms then adenomyosis, is there a possibility that I have that rather then adenomyosis? I am seeing a specialist in a couple weeks, I think thats for the best, but right now my mind is going a little crazy so if anyone has imformation that could be helpful for me it would be very much appreciated.

My wife was just diagnosed with it and she's only 26. So far every doctor we have seen has no answer but a hysterectomy. Everyday she is in debilitating pain and bleeds at least 20 days out of each month. I was wondering if you had any suggestions and was hoping it got better for you. Please reply if you get a chance. Thank you

You should get an MRI done to confirm it. I can relate to your story and I am 24 now.
