Uterine Fibroids Treatment
Uterine fibroids also called uterine myoma are non cancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during the child bearing years. The cause of the fibroids is not fully understood yet but, risk factors include:
- Family history of fibroids
- Early onset of puberty
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Prolonged periods
- Pelvic pain
Conventional treatments include medications and removal of the fibroids. But, recurrences are often observed even after the surgical removal of fibroids. On the other hand homeopathic remedies tend to balance the hormones, shrink the fibroids and reduce heavy menstrual bleeding. They are effective with no side effects and can be used even during pregnancy.
uterine fibroids that do not cause a problem for the woman can be left untreated. In some cases, even fibroids that are not causing symptoms require removal or at least close observation. ... However, this type of tumor occurs in less than 1% of uterine fibroids
Frequently Asked Qustions
What causes fibroids to grow?
Because no one knows for sure what causes fibroids, we also don't know what causes them to grow or shrink. We do know that they are under hormonal control — both estrogen and progesterone. They grow rapidly during pregnancy, when hormone levels are high. They shrink when anti-hormone medication is used.
Are fibroid tumors cancerous?
According to the FDA, if the woman also has uterine cancer, this procedure can risk spreading the cancer within the abdomen and pelvis, making it harder to treat. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. They are very common and often do not cause symptoms.
