Posted , 3 users are following.

hi everyone. I  found out two months ago, I have several fibroids in my uterus, six precisely. the big one is 8x6 cm near to the uterus' cervice. I went to the private gynie, and she sujested a medical treatment with esmya and then go for the myoectomy. I don't know if it will be done laparoscopically or hysteroscopically. I am just worry that it wont' work. I also trying to loose wait, since I read that under 70 kl there is not so much risk they can come back and also to eat kind of food that avoid they grow. I am really scared, I am 30 and I did not have any baby yet, and I wish I can have one day a family.rolleyes

    Hi, I know it's a scary feeling, try not to worry too much, many ladies have had a myomectomy and have gone on to have children.

    I am 58 and this is not a worry for me however! I have taken 3 courses of Esmya and it has worked for me, reducing the fibroids each time, but they grow back. It does have menopausal side effects, which may seem worrying, but it's only temporary and necessary to starve the fibroids of hormones. It doesn't work for everyone, but every bit it shrinks them makes the surgery easier.

    i found it easier to take them at night, as there can be some dizziness/ tiredness too. And be aware they also take a while, maybe 6 weeks, to have an effect, calming the bleeding and shrinking the fibroids.

    I wish you luck with the treatment.

      is there a risk of no being pregnant? I noticed that many women don't tell about that. Since I started my esmya treatment, and now it is already 2 weeks, I feel much better but still worry that I can be infertile in the future.
