The Symptoms of and Treatments for Uterine Fibroids

I would like to request women, who have attained their reproductive age to see if they are suffering from the following conditions:

  • Experiencing abnormal bleeding during menstruation and the cycle lasts for prolonged periods, generally accompanied by excruciatingly painful cramps. Although a large number of women do not pay heed to the heavy flow, if periods are taking a toll on your daily lives, it is time to get a diagnosis.
  •  Who suffer from pelvic pressure and frequent abdominal pangs, there are women, who consider such non-menstrual pelvic pain normal and either consume high dose drugs or take resort to home-based tricks for getting rid of the discomfort. However, instead of enduring or suppressing, it would be viable if they seek professional medical assistance. 
  • Bladder pressure and irregular urinary patterns are some other serious issues that must not be neglected. Many women experience pain while urinating and lose bladder control on normal occasions. Well, get it straight that such a condition should not be overlooked and one must consult a doctor as soon as possible.
  • While sexual intercourse is something that provides pleasure to partners, there are women, who avoid indulging in the practice due to the immense pain and discomfort that they experience. If you are also going through the same situation, make sure to get yourself diagnosed immediately.
Top-notch healthcare professionals have undertaken varied experimentation and then concluded that fibroids or uterine tumors could be the reason behind all the above-mentioned conditions. About 50% women throughout the world have suffered from such a medical issue. If you are one of them, feel free to contact a doctor and opt for any of the below-mentioned treatment options, all of which are readily available.

  • Hysterectomy is one of the traditional procedures that involve complete removal of the uterus. However, it is due to the risks associated that this process is not accepted by modern-day individuals.
  • Hormonal therapy is considered another feasible treatment option for dealing with fibroids. A large number of medical professionals stated that an increase in estrogen levels could trigger the growth of the tumors. Well, hormone therapy reduces the production of estrogen and hence causes the lumps to shrink.
  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a treatment that has managed to attain widespread recognition. It is due to its innovation that many women are saying no to hysterectomy for fibroids. The minimally invasive surgical procedure can cure multiple fibroids at a time and provide relief from all associated symptoms in no time.
The aforementioned treatments, especially the last one could most surely provide you with a fibroid-free life.
