    Has you doctor tried Tranaxeamic Acid tablets for bleeding?

    You could always look into Uterine arterial embolisation as an alternative treatment?

    I have been having the same problems but m now decided to have hysterectomy,as luckily I already have 2 Fab boys.

    I had considered embolisation but my biggest fibroid is 12 cm, and I believe they work better with smaller fibroids, so maybe you could research that option?

    Not sure about the max size of fibroid I have heard different things.

    Have you tried the tranaexamic acids they can help reduce bleeding.

    You could research into fibroid diet...ive read some ladies on this forum raving about

    changing to diets free from diary and meat have had massive reduction in fibroids.

    The other option is to get a second opinion. ...?

    My gynae didn't offer myomectomy but did offer to refer me for embolisation if I wanted any more kids.

    Hi, I was told by radiologist that the maximum size for embolism is 8cm but get advice.  They should also be giving you something to control your heavy bleeding x
