Can Exercise Shrink Fibroids?
If you are aware that you have fibroids, you may well have re 00004000 ad all kinds of conflicting information about what the best treatments are to help you to reduce them. If you are wondering specifically, “Can exercise shrink fibroids”, well there isn’t really a definitive answer.
Fibroids form due to the subtle interaction of a number of factors which happen to be present in the body. It is believed that your diet, hereditary factors and lifestyle play a big part. It is virtually impossible to determine exactly what the precise causes of fibroids are in an individual.
Conventional treatment tends to deal with eliminating the symptoms of fibroids. The problem with this is that these treatments do nothing to eliminate the root causes, meaning that even after extensive surgery, fibroids can regrow and often quite quickly too! The only true way to shrink fibroids is to eliminate the root causes, meaning that the body effectively becomes a neutralized environment in which new fibroids cannot grow or existing ones supported.
So, can exercise shrink fibroids? Well, exercise can certainly help with the symptoms of fibroids. No matter what treatment you choose, it will work better if the body is fit and strong. Exercise will control stress, improve circulation and relieve muscle tension. In addition, better hormonal balance is usually enjoyed by women who exercise regularly and this in itself can help with fibroids.
Specifically, some exercises are better than others for women with fibroids and the three main forms of exercise to shrink fibroids are:-
1. Aerobic – Fast walking, swimming and running will all help improve your circulation
2. Muscle-Strengthening Exercise – Try weight training as this will generally strengthen the muscles, including those required to support the uterus. Also try Pilates and kegel exercises.
3. Energy-Enhancing and Hormone Balancing Exercises – Often Eastern-inspired. Consider Yoga and Tai-Chi.
There is little doubt that the best way exercise can help shrink fibroids is to combine it with other natural treatments, such as dietary modification and making lifestyle changes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Period cramps should i go to the er?
I started my period yesterday, and I am having the worse cramps. I have always had bad cramps. I also found out about 2 years old I have endometrosis and last year found out I have fibroids on top of it. So every month this makes my period interesting. I have taken just since yesterday, Tylenol, and Ibuprofen. Nothing is working. I can hardly move without hurting. I have tried the heating pad and a warm bath nothing works
I guess it’s a little late to answer by now since your cramps are probably gone, or you went to the ER, but better late than never I always say. Since you know the female problems you have I’m afraid you’re just going to keep on suffering horrible cramps until you have something done about your endo and fibroids.
One thing I would suggest though since heat is not helping your cramps any you might want to try an ice pack or ice bag. I’ve interviewed hundreds of women about cramping and though ice was not a really popular remedy overall, those with severe cramps used it with good results. If you don’t have an ice bag you can put ice in a cloth, or even use a bag of frozen veggies (peas work best) and put that on your abdomen.
By the way, I love the way you put that your conditions made your period ‘interesting.’ Lol.
Really, I’m sorry you have such bad cramping and I hope it gets better for you. Good luck!
Fibroids How long does it take to shrink them?
I 28 yrs old from California and while I was staying with my parents I went to a Gyno was told that I have 3 fibroid tumors 2 size of a lime and 1 lemon. I was taking some natural pills called, Fibrovan but that didn’t help me. So now I’m in Australia and I went to an OB here and the doctor told me my fibroid grew enourmously. I was so dissapointed but I still have hope that they can shrink. So I changed all my eating habits (no meat or dairy only a bit of soy for my brew with molasses) when I arrived. I’ve read about natural stuff right now I’m doing this juice detox just drinking fresh fruits and vegetables and drinking Plenty water. I don’t eat lollies or anything greasy I’m really trying to shrink these bad boys if u know what I mean I drink my cup of black strap molasses in the morning and the rest it’s just a fruit and veggie juice the whole day. I feel fine I don’t have bad side affects like some other women thank goodness for me (I just go to the bathroom more) but one thing Im worried is that I have recently noticed since my fibroid is located on top of my uterus I can start noticing that it’s popping up, growing more or moving up more. You can actually start seeing my fribroid. My eating habits changed recently. What other things do u recommend i should eat? Am I on the right track of shrinking my fibroids? I’m about to excersise which I do for about an hour. I didn’t get my menstrual period last month which is not the first time just the second but other months it’s been normal. I’m not insured and I don’t believe surgery is the only way. Ladies, please I need your advise from your own experience or from someone that knows that has succesfully shrink their fibroids. I appreciate positive advise and support!
Hope to hear from you!
You are very lucky that your not having problems related to those tumors. MSN Health states “a healthy diet and regular exercise are important parts of a good health plan, but there is no evidence that they will directly affect the growth or symptoms of fibroids.”
Tumors grow in response to estrogen and the medical treatment are drugs that decrease estrogen, starving the tumor. Surgery is indicated when the woman can not tolerate the side effects or if your unable to concieve after a year of trying. The same article lists some procedures that are being tried to shrink the tumor, ultrasound and some procedure to decrease the blood flow that feed it.
I had fibroids removed surgically but only when I could not tolerate the pain anymore and my periods were very heavy and getting closer together.
So to answer your question, I am sad to say, your options are limited You can do very little on your own. But the good news is you feel good, Take care
Would pain from fibroids cause ur stomache and back to hurt, like hard hitting blows that keeps u in bed.?
The pain are so horrific that I feel something bad could happen to me. I have been to the doctor and they say everything is good. My pain is with me every day, never leaves just sometimes not as painful as some days. I feel that the pain is moving upward causing other problems within. but its not being detected by doctors. And those that do detect it want take them out. So what do I do to relieve this pain to make it go away forever, since I can’t get the help of a doctor. I don’t have insurance. So I feel that’s why I’m stuck with the ignoring pain that never leaves. So what do I do.
did you ever hear the saying ( food is our medicine and medicine is our food) it’s true. you can start by taking some food supplement find a health food store and start taking some nutrition juices or pill form. or go to the website below and check out what they have. order a catalog, they will send it free. the items are very inexpensive and they work for all aspect of your health.
Period cramps should i go to the er (REPOST)?
I started my period yesterday, and I am having the worse cramps. I have always had bad cramps. I also found out about 2 years ago I have endometrosis and last year found out I have fibroids on top of it. So every month this makes my period interesting.

There’s no point going to hospital. You’ll wait for hours and just be told to see your doctor. Your doctor will be able to prescribe something better for your pain than just over the counter medicine.
For all women unable to have biological children…I’m wondering….advice please!?
I was adopted by loving parents at the age of 8 months. I am now 21 and pregnant. My mom was unfortunately unable to have any biological children because of fibroids and cysts on her ovaries and uterus. I am wanting to move back in with her and my dad so that they can experience this pregnancy with me. Is this a good idea? I haven’t yet spoken with them about it, would it be too hard on my mom because she was never able to experience any of this herself? Any advice is needed. Thanks!!!
As a woman who has similar fertility problems and the adoptive mom of a super little girl I hope my advice helps.
In my own personal opinion it would not be a problem for me….it’s sweet your think of her but mom is going to love having you home and being able to spend time with her grandchild.
I hope someday I will be a grandmother and I hope that if dd was facing a pregnancy either planned or not I would hope and pray she would turn to her dad and I.
I have never been able to carry my pregnancies to term but I have been pregnant so I understand how emotionally and physically demanding it can be. A girl needs her mom when she is pregnant whether she is sixteen or twenty-six. Talk to mom and mention your concerns but I honestly do not think it would even cause mom a second thought…..after all your going to be a mommy this will be such and exciting time for all of you!!!!!!!
Congratulations and Good Luck
