Fibroids and Heavy Periods

One of the most common symptoms of fibroids is an increase in menstrual flow and bleeding between periods. In general, fibroids and heavy periods do go hand in hand and there are various reasons why this is the case.

* Fibroids can sometimes cause blockages, leading to a build up of blood which seems heavier when eventually released

* Congestion within the uterus can cause a change in the pattern of blood flow in and out of the uterus

* An increase in the number of blood vessels, meaning a greater flow of blood through the uterus

* Fibroids themselves can sometimes bleed

If you notice that your periods are longer than 5-7 days and there is more bleeding than normal, you should visit your doctor for a diagnosis, ensuring that she checks for fibroids.

About the author: Gail advocates using natural treatments for fibroids rather than using conventional medication or surgery as this is a workable long term solution. Conventional medication only treats the symptoms and fibroids are likely to regrow, whereas natural treatments, when used properly can eliminate the root cause by rebalancing the body and restoring overall health.

      A majority of fibroids require no treatment. However treatment becomes necessary if there is excessive bleeding during menstruation, the tumour keeps growing or if there are other symptoms. In women older than 35years or with completed family are treated by a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) rather than myomectomy (removal of the fibroids), to minimize the chances of recurrence. Myomectomy is generally done in cases where the patient wishes to preserve her fertility. Medicines like danazol, GnRH analogues and progesterone derivatives, to shrink the fibroid, may be given for 2-3 months before surgery.

      In the present times, laparoscopic removal of the uterus with fibroids or removal of the fibroid only are also performed reqularily with excellent results. The advantage over the routine open procedures is a quicker recovery, shorter hospital stay and less complications. The only disadvantage may be a longer anasthesia duration.
