Severe pain due to uterine fibroids, irregular periods. Unable to afford hysterectomy. Cure for fibroids?

I am suffering from horrible pain from uterine fibroids . I have been advised to have a hysterectomy unfortunately I m not in a position to afford a hysterectomy at this time. I m not interested in prescription pain medication . I have read that marijuana can help with pain. Is this an option I should consider. I m currently having a period every 9-12 days. My quality of life has been severely affected by the amount of pain I m dealing with iburprophen helps pain but causes extreme stomach pains and nausea!

You have not mentioned your age. There are other options to treat fibroids, not only hysterectomy.
It depends where you are residing at the moment. A drug can be injected into the blood vessel supplying the uterus, which can cause the fibroid to shrivel up.
I strongly recommend you not to go down the line of using unlicensed drugs to control the pain. You really need proper treatment, because if you continue to bleed heavily, you will become anaemic and that will cause a multitude of other problems.
Try talking to your doctor or health authority about monetary help with treatment. As I said previously, because I am not aware where you are from, I can not suggest any organizations that can help you.
Best wishes.
