I am a 47 year old woman and I have been dealing with fibroids for the past 5 years. I started with 3 and now have 11. The largest at my last ultrasound was 8cm. Unlike a lot of women, I want a hysterectomy These have only gotten worse every year that passes by. My flow is like a waterfall and a Super Plus tampon lasts me 15 minutes. I also have to wear incontinence underwear because the flow is so bad that it literally gushes and will ruin my clothes, not to mention, put me in a very embarrassing situation. The pain is very similar to contractions and no over the counter pain killers do anything at all. I am woken up in the middle of the night from the pain. With the pressure that is placed on the rest of my organs I also have to wear bladder control underwear everyday because I will pee myself with no warning whatsoever! Another issue is no sex for the past 4 years either. Pain is not suppose to be a part of that, but when you have fibroids, it is. These fibroids have truly ruined my life and I can't wait to be rid of my uterus. I am on day 3 of taking Fibristal (I live in BC) and so far the pain is just as bad, bleeding seems to be even more now and the blood clots are a lot bigger too. I am hoping this passes in the next day or so. I was told the bleeding should stop within two days of taking the Fibristal, so I am still hopefully by tomorrow it will have stopped. I will be taking this for 3 months then have another ultrasound to see how my hysterectomy will be performed. Cutting open my stomache, or to have my uterus removed through the vagina.
