What Women Should Know About Uterine Fibroids

Jun 18, 2008
Fibroids affect four out of every five women and so are an issue of grave concern. Luckily, there is a new non-surgical treatment which might help with this problem. Fibroids usually occur as multiple tumors that tend to grow very slowly. Sometimes, however, a woman may have a single fibroid the size of a grapefruit or even one so large that it fills the entire abdomen.

They are non-cancerous tumors that evolved from the muscle of the uterus. I ended up being excluded from the study for another reason, and attempted to go for follow-up like the head researcher had recommended.

They can be very frustrating, I have been struggling with mine for several years. I hope that the information I post here can help other women. Fibroids spontaneously infarct after childbirth. Because the postpartum cervix is patulous, infarcted fibroids that fall into this symptom.

The growth among women is very common and at least a fifth of all women will report this condition while this percentage rises to eighty percent when they attain the age of fifty or more. They are really growths or tumors comprising muscle cells as well as tissues along the walls of the uterus.

Many can grow as a single growth or in clusters (or groups). Their size can vary from small, like an apple seed (or less than one inch), to even larger than a grapefruit, or eight inches across or more. Fibroids are muscular tumors that are almost always benign.

They can grow on the inside, outside or within the walls of the uterus. Fibroids may also cause spotting between periods, dull pain or feelings of fullness or pressure in your lower abdomen or back. If they press on your bladder or rectum, you might develop urinary or bowel symptoms.

They are a condition of growth(s) on a females uterus which is non cancerous. Many many women have fibroids today and don't know it. They are not a disease, they are your genetic blueprint. If you can live with the symptoms it would probably be better than unnecessary intervention of any kind.

They generally shrink after menopause and stop causing symptoms. Or the symptoms may be mild, smaller periods that are a little heavier than normal.

They are an extremely common complaint although we rarely talk about them. Once you do open up and bring the topic up you will be amazed how many women you know who have had, or know someone who has had, fibroids. Many come about because the estrogen receptors are stimulated too much, regardless of your periods and usual hormonal flows.

So make your emotional peace and that will be the start of healing. Fibroids or polyps may affect fertility if they involve the uterine .

They will often cause no symptoms and need no treatment, and they usually shrink after menopause. But sometimes fibroids cause heavy bleeding or pain, and require treatment. Fibroids increase in size during pregnancy, when progesterone production is high, and atrophy after menopause, when progesterone levels decrease.

Whichever side is right, eating more whole grains and beans usually changes estrogen/progesterone ratio for the better and shrinks fibroids. They are fueled by estrogen. By taking a B complex you will greatly improve the odds of bothering with fibroids.

They normally aren't problematic, but if they do cause heavy or painful periods, abdominal discomfort or bloating, back ache, urinary frequency or retention etc, then there are surgical and non-surgical methods to remove it (depending on size and location). Fibroids thrive by a blood supply that makes them grow .
