Can all this cause a weight gain? and years ago I had a myomectomy cause I had one that was 10cm. I don t want a hysterectomy and someone gave me vitex to take womens hormonal balance. Would really reduce the one that is 5.6 cm. Right now no matter what I eat or how less I eat my stomach always feels swellon.

Dear lori
welcome to healthcaermagic
Here are some tips for you please take Apple cider, vinegar, and baking soda which can be found in your kitchen can potentially reduce fibroids or cyst because it is an alkaline substance. Research also claims that these kitchen ingredients reduce excess calcium in the body tissue making the ovary function normally for regular menstrual cycles.
Lemon or lime and baking soda also has the same effects as apple cider and baking soda. Lemon or lime has a greater amount of alkaline substance while apple cider has the ability to increase metabolic rate causing weight loss.
Vegetables, fruits, whole grain and legumes are included in the diet as these foods are known to have medicinal attributes that help cure fibroids.
Please avoid commercial foods as well as meat, dairy products, and egg among others because these foods increase the estrogen level

General & Family Physician Dr. Khaleel Ahmed.Manik's  Response
A uterine fibroid is a benign (non-cancerous) tumor that originates from the smooth muscle layer and the accompanying connective tissue of the uterus.

Most fibroids do not require treatment unless they are causing symptoms. After menopause fibroids shrink and it is unusual for fibroids to cause problems.

Symptomatic uterine fibroids can be treated by:

medication to control symptoms
medication aimed at shrinking tumours
ultrasound fibroid destruction
various surgically aided methods to reduce blood supply of fibroids
myomectomy or radio frequency ablation
A number of medications are in use to control symptoms caused by fibroids. NSAIDs can be used to reduce painful menses. Oral contraceptive pills are prescribed to reduce uterine bleeding and cramps.Anemia may have to be treated with iron supplementation.

Levonorgestrel intrauterine devices are highly effective in limiting menstrual blood flow. Side effects are typically very moderate because the levonorgestrel (a progestin) is released in low concentration locally. There is now substantial evidence that Levongestrel-IUDs provide good symptomatic relief for women with fibroid.

Danazol is an effective treatment to shrink fibroids and control symptoms.

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs cause temporary regression of fibroids by decreasing estrogen levels.
