Hi,

Bulky uterus can be seen in parous women. Fibroid can lead to menstrual irregularities like heavy menstrual cycles and pain during periods. Sevista by acting as estrogen receptor modulator can help in shrinkage of the fibroid. Sometimes women may not get periods while using Sevista.

After completing the course better to undergo repeat ultrasound examination to find out change in size of the fibroid. Sometimes due to the effect of the tablet and also age gradual menopause can be attained after stopping the tablet. Once she attains the menopause the size of the fibroid will shrink automatically. Please consult your gynecologist, discuss these things and proceed according to her advice.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
