Can Removing a Large Fibroid Improve Hormones?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, wondering if any women in their 40s have had a large fibroid removed and seen it improve/balance their hormones or even push them out of perimenopause back to normal hormone levels? I have a much younger friend (mid 30s) who found that after fibroid surgery her fertility increased and her hormones were more balanced. I'm in in peri and debating the surgery, just wondering if might be any added hormonal benefit if I'm already in peri, or if anyone has seen that happen. So sick of peri symptoms esp anxiety, fat and crazy hair shedding. Thanks!

    This is very interesting. I felt a significant hormonal shift after my myomectomy. I have period events like When I was in my 20s- pain in my boobs a week before, nausea for a day, abdominal cramping on day 1, and less bloating. Saw these last about 2006 and then again after my surgery. I wondered if the tumors locked down free hormones since they have receptor sites or whether they produced hormone. A topiC worth studying.

    Hello I am 44, and had a myomectomy back in February this year. This is very interesting to find out more, all I can say /notice is that pre surgury i had random night sweats. Since my operation these have now gone. I had in total over 25 fibroids removed. The largest two were 7 and 5 cms respectively. The remaining were like golf balls..

    My sex life is even better, I feel alot more hornier, I have no children, I am of the thinking that so much damage has been done already, there may not be time for to have a child, but I am no longer in pain as I was before. Since my sex life and orgasm is now tremendous I will have fun finding out 😉)
