hello bindhu,
small size fibroids can be treated by medical mangement.GnRH agonists are helpful in this. if size increases and symptoms persist then surgical option is taken which is called myomectemy. so consult a gynecologist and follow her advice. take care

Hi
The size of the fibroid is small.There neednt be any surgery done unless indicated.
Medical management should suffice.Of course,the size is dependant on estrogen secretion and usually spontanously decreases with menopause.But myomectomy is a surgeical option if you want it.

Hello.i am a 32 yr old female.been married for 11 months now and was told I had multiple fibroids years before I married.i was a virgin until I got married.however,my periods have been extremely heavy for a few years now and suddenly it started alternating,one month it s slightly shorterand less heavy than d next month.also,I get this really terrible pain sometimes in d abdomen .this pain just comes and goes and has no relationship with my periods or cycle.i only noticed that I get constipated very often for long periods and anytime I get this pain,I get some relief if I m able to use the toilet.and sometimes, I take felxicam and d pain disappears in a few mins.i saw over 5 doctors who had advised I left the fibroids sins I had not had a ny children yet and that usually unless it becomes absolutely necessary,no Dr likes to perform surgeries on a patient whose system has never been tampered with and all that.the recent ultrasound I did showed this result; Uterus-bulky in size,contains multiple mixed mass lesson intramural lay in the anterior fundal region measuring 4.7cm by 6.3cm,posterior fundal region,5.4cm by 3.3cm,posterior myonitum??.... 6.4 by 4.8 cm and at the cervical region,8.12 by 7.4 cm.the endometrial plate appears distorted and I distinct. Now I don t know what to do cos I am afraid of goin in for a surgery.my husband and I had not used any contraceptives but we had avoided having intercourse durin my unsafe periods as our own birth control method up until now.just dis month,we have decided to start tryin for a baby so I don t know wether or not it is advisable I take out the fibroids or just go with wat I was told about leaving it for now until I ve had kids except it begins to hinder dat process.im just confused.

I m 53, never had children. I have had Uterine Fibroids for years and the doctor keeps telling me they will go away when I have menopause which has not happened yet. In June 2017 I had a pelvic ultrasound to check on the fibroids - they have increased in size and I had two ovarian cysts one on each side. We did an endometrial biopsy which came back normal. Last week I had my follow up pelvic ultrasound. The fibroids have not changed and the ovarian cysts are still there but they have reduced in size. What do I do at this point? What questions should I ask my doctor. Thank you.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.
