  • Intramural fibroids(myomas): no symptoms will be found if the size is small. Symptoms such as increased menstruation, prolonged periods and straining feelings during periods may be found when the fibroids develop. Constipation can be discovered in patients with posterior fibroids.
  • Subserosal fibroids: generally no symptom will be found. However, urinary frequency may be found when the fibroids locating in the anterior wall are large enough to compress the bladder.
  • Submucosal fibroids(myomas): heavy period is the main symptom. With development of the fibroids, symptoms such as increasing period, secondary anemia, infertility or miscarriage caused by increased periods may be found. If they are pedunculated subserosal fibroids(myomas), they may stimulate the uterus shrinking causing paroxysmal abdominal pain or falling feelings. Infection of submucosal fibroids may result in necrosis and lead to mass of hemorrhagic leucorrhea or smelly purulent leucorrhea.

I've heard acupuncture and certain herbs can possibly shrink fibroids. You can buy herbs online such as Fibrovan and Fibroidclear but who know how much they really work? I chose to have mine out through a minimally invasive robotic surgery because I wish to have a child and I'm too old to wait to see if they shrink naturally. You may also want to google hot castor oil packs. Supposedly, they help move the blood in the uteris. Good luck!

Hi Everyone,

I've just joined the forum in the hopes that I can converse with women who may be experiencing similar issues as myself or women who have gone through this process and come out the other side. I have a large fibroid (now 12cmx12cm approx). It started almost six years ago when I was 30 years old. I am now 36 almost 37 and it has grown a lot. I was told not to worry at the beginning but once I realized it was not going away I started stressing about it. I find I have a lot of stress around it. I went on a vegetable diet then off. I take iron pills for anemia that wasn't diagnosed until recently. I think I had had that for a long time but didn't notice. My anemia is much better and I have lots more energy. (By the way if pharmaceautical iron is making you nauseous try Solgar iron. It's working wonders for me without the nausea).
Exercise seems to do nothing at all. I do a lot of reiki and I think this helps with pain management (although pain is not a huge issue in regards to the fibroid) and relaxation. Does anyone have any advice for how to keep calm during times of stress. Most people around me are supportive of a no surgery option (which is what I want). I want to do this naturally. I feel stressed around the emotional issues involved as well. I feel a lot of pressure to fix the fibroid and it's not working.

Thanks for listening all and good luck to you with your fibroids.
