As soon as you are told you have fibroids...have them removed (if possible) while they are small...before you end up like me...10 years later with huge (20cm) uterus. Don't listen to the B... S.... that they will shrink when you go into menopause; sometimes they do, but too often they don't. I believe in herbs and of course taking care of yourself, and I'm sure a few people get some positive results, but most fibroids aren't going anywhere. Fibroids have a mind of their own...and if you don't already know it, there are several different types of fibroids. Mine (a whole bunch of them) just get bigger and multiply and has been causing me lower back pain for the last five or so years. I thought I could out-vitamin/herb/apple cider vinegar them.. what a freaking costly joke. And all the insensitive, insulting doctors who say "you're not using your uterus any more - lets just take it out". And the FEMALE doctor who said "while she's in there she's going to remove my cervix, too" as if my body is the game board "Operation." I never had problems with bleeding, sex, bladder, bowels. I recently had an MRI which showed as I previously stated many fibroids, but the doctor said my ovaries and everything else in there is in good condition and why should I have a hyterectomy. I'm going to be working with him to remove the fibroids. Don't get me wrong; I probably would have had surgery a long time ago if I had been bleeding and suffering the way many woman do...but just do your research. I have not fully enjoyed the last several years of my life because I'm exremely self-conscious of my protruding belly. I kept thinking could shrink my fibroids...personally, could not. BTW I am now 60 years old.
