I've been reading bits and pieces on here about fibroids and esmya, and I'd like to hear from anyone who has had a recent experience of the medication, or anyone who could give feedback from their experiences.
I'm 34 and have been diagnosed with 2 fibroids - one 7cm and the other 11cm. I've been prescribed esmya, and I am on my second month now and will return to the doctors after three months of taking it where they will scan me again. I suffered side effects the first few weeks - dizziness, feeling sick in the mornings and tiredness, but that does seem to have subsided now.
I'd like the fibroids removed really, but I don't think they want to operate on me as I already had one huge fibroid removed 5 years ago - that one was 18cm.. so operating again on these ones would probably put my fertility at further risk etc.. but the fibroids can really petrude some days and be uncomfortable so I'm just hoping they do shrink.
Will this medication significantly shrink my fibroids..? Or is it variable from one person to the next? Also, has anyone experimented with their diet to promote shrinking their fibroids? I'm trying all sorts and have now literally gone vegan and wheat free. I hear that flaxseeds and maca powder are good too so adding these to my smoothies.
Thanks for reading..any comments welcome.. x
