Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
To shrink the fibroids before surgery, usually short term hormonal therapy injections are recommended.
GnRH agonists and androgens like Danazol are usually used for this purpose. The components of drug Esmee are not known to me. Please provide the name of the salt so that I can help you.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
