How To Cure Fibroids In The Uterus
When someone approaches us and asks, “How do you cure fibroids?” We are usually concerned first with the actual condition of the person asking. Is she the fibroid patient? If she is, how big, and how many fibroids does she have? The mere presence of small fibroids in a woman’s uterus does not necessarily mean that she has to undergo surgery.
A fibroid patient must pass a specific set of criteria before any kind of surgery is recommended to treat her fibroids.
Since there is no solid cure for this condition (e.g. a drug that can completely remove fibroids), let us talk about the things that you can do in the meantime. I will also be discussing some things that you should expect when you visit your physician regarding your fibroids or myomas.
How To Cure Fibroids Without Surgery
– The most common recommendation for fibroid patients is to just wait and observe their condition before a final set of treatment options are laid down by the physician. This applies most especially to patients who have relatively small fibroids. Drastic surgery is usually not recommended to women who have small uterine tumors, especially if they are not really causing any serious health issues at the moment.
– If your doctor tells you that no surgery is needed at the moment, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be having any potential problems in the future. Make sure that you visit your physician every few months, so you can get an ultrasound or a similar test. Your doctor needs to know the growth rate of your myoma(s).
– Uterine tumors have a strong association with increased menstrual blood flow during monthly periods. However, you should know that increased menstrual blood flow can also manifest as a symptom of other health conditions. Do not assume that your fibroids are causing the excess menstrual blood. Have yourself examined by your physician to rule out more serious conditions.
– Non-steroidal anti-inflammation agents may be used to relieve excessive pain during your monthly periods. However, these drugs were not meant to control the bleeding of any uterine tumors, and the pain-regulating properties of these drugs may not be enough to completely mute the pain associated with the tumors themselves. If you have large myomas, and the pain is unbearable, surgery might be your best option, because it is never advisable to be on painkillers for a long period of time, as it has been proven that painkiller can reduce kidney function over time.
– If you have large uterine tumors, it is not advisable to conceive unless you undergo a myomectomy where the tumors themselves will be removed from the uterus. Preventing pregnancies while the fibroids are still there is essential because complications can arise during labor because of the fibroids. Birth control pills are the simplest and most cost effective way of hitting two birds with a single stone. If you take birth control pills, your menstruation will be regulated efficiently and at the same time, the chances getting pregnant even with regular sexual intercourse will be reduced greatly.
