How To Shrink Fibroids Fast

If you are looking for information on how to shrink fibroids f 00004000 ast, you may be making the common yet understandable mistake made by many women who search for natural solutions on the internet. It is easy to be lured by the promise of a single cure-all type treatment, such as a herbal remedy or just by eating certain foods. Fibroids are a complex condition and effective treatment strategies can be too.

Experts find it difficult to determine exactly what causes fibroids in an individual. They broadly agree on the likely causes, which are excess estrogen, lifestyle issues, dietary issues, stress and a build up of toxins. These, blended with a woman’s unique genetic make up can trigger fibroid growth in vulnerable individuals.

Surgery and other conventional treatments can quickly eliminate the symptoms of fibroids. However, they are not a permanent solution as they do not deal with the root causes, meaning that fibroids will often regrow within an alarmingly short space of time. Similarly, isolated treatments such as herbal mixes may well give you some symptomatic relief, but will not shrink fibroids fast as like conventional treatments, they cannot address what caused fibroids to grow in the first place.

When learning how to shrink fibroids fast, you need to start by eliminating all the commonly-known root causes. This means eating a diet which is supportive of shrinkage. You will need to eat organic foods in their natural state and drink plenty of water. Pay particular attention to eating dark green leafy vegetables as several studies have indicated that women who eat these are less prone to fibroids. You should avoid red meats and dairy produce.

Removing excess estrogen is essential when wanting to shrink fibroids fast. This can be achieved by following liver detox protocols and losing excess weight, where appropriate. Taking regular exercise has also been shown to help women with fibroids. Stress management and dietary supplementation are also essential elements of a robust plan for reducing fibroids.

The main thing to remember when looking at how to shrink fibroids fast is that if you omit to deal with any of the possible “root causes” you will not do a thorough job. This means that your success will be limited and possible short-lived.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Can you have ovarian cysts, fibroids and endometriosis all at once?
    I have Pcos (Polycstic Ovarian Syndrome) but I also have symptoms of Endometriosis and fibroids too. Is it possible to have all 3 at one time? If anyone knows please let me know! (I have a dr appointment coming up) but just curious now! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      These conditions are linked to an underlying gluten intolerance. I have just discovered that I am gluten intolerant and suffered from endometriosis all my child bearing years. I also had a large fibroid. Nobody told me that I might be gluten intolerant, but I’ve been doing a lot of research since discovering this and I now know these conditions are linked to gluten intolerance. many people are GI but simply don’t know it as doctors are only familiar with celiac disease which is an allergy to gluten rather than just an intolerance. Gluten is found in wheat, oats, barley and rye. I’ve been gluten free for 4 months now and feeling better than I have done in years. If you go on a gluten free diet, you will probably heal your conditions.

  2. QUESTION:
    Sudden change in period, extremely painful and heavy. Fibroids? Endometriosis?
    My cycles since I can remember have always been six days long, the first 2 days very heavy bleeding, moderate bleeding the next two days and the last two days were very light. Even after having two children, my cycle has always returned to the same cycle within a couple of months following their birth.

    Last month, my period lasted 11 days, the first 5 being extremely heavy and finally tapering into a lighter flow the following 6 days. This month has resulted in the same start (day 4 of my cycle and all being very heavy.)

    For those of you who have experienced endometriosis and/or fibroids (history in my family of both), is this a warning sign I need to be aware of? My fiance and I would like to attempt to have one more child and through past encounters with birth control, they’ve taken me into deep depressions as a result of the hormones. I don’t want to put an end to my periods all together at this point, but am seriously weighing my options.

    Thank you in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Your guess about the causes is a good one. It could be either. If you are checked out and found NOT to have one of these, they should do a hormone panel to see if you have some abnormality, possibly even an ovarian tumor which affects your hormones.

      It COULD just be how your body works, unfortunately. Often, the endometrium (the tissue that bleeds), doesn’t exit the uterus fully, and continues to bleed. A D&C can bring relief, and even stop this altogether, or it may come back. The procedure is rather unpleasant, too. If the pill isn’t for you, there IS a drug that slows bleeding, usually used to stop hemorrhaging. Oxytocin is the one they usually give, I believe.

      For temporary relief of bleeding, try lying down for a day or two, with a cold pack on your abdomen. Leave it on for 20 mins., then remove. Put it back after skin warms up again. Do this for a few hours and it often provides relief. Also, avoid drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen, which cause more bleeding. Use Tylenol instead.

      See the link below for more explanations and treatment options.

      P.S. The site below also mentions the procedure mentioned above (endometrial ablation). However, it states that this is NOT for anyone wishing to maintain her fertility, as it “destroys the lining of the uterus”). Since you mentioned wanting to have another child, this wouldn’t be good for you.

      You might also want to reconsider having another child, as “loss of tonality” (or stretching) in the uterus, can cause excess blood loss, and even hemorrhage, esp. after childbirth. Sounds like you need a thorough gyn work-up! Good luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    Am I likely to have trouble conceiving with a tilted uterus and a family history of fibroids & endometriosis?
    I am 19 (almost 20) years old and engaged. I am still in school and do not want to try for a baby until I am done or in my last year of school (which could be anywhere from 3-5 years). I had very bad menstrual cramps from the age of 14 on and would routinely miss a day of school every time my period started. I now have a mirena and I don’t have to worry about that anymore because I don’t really get periods.

    BUT when my mirena was placed I was told that I had a tilted uterus. My mother says that she had a tilted uterus as well, and she had endometriosis and fibroids which led her to a hysterectomy at age 39. Both of her sisters, her mother, and her aunt have all suffered from either endometriosis, fibroids, or both. My mother and her sisters had no trouble at all while they were young (in fact the majority of their pregnancies were accidental!), but every woman in my family who has tried to conceive a child past her mid twenties has had a great deal of trouble (my aunt started trying for her 3rd child when she was 29 and didn’t get pregnant until she was 36). I am not sure at what age they developed endometriosis and if that was the cause of my mother’s tilted uterus or if it was tilted before her endometriosis developed. My nurse practitioner doesn’t seem to think I should worry about it. But with the combination of painful periods and a tilted uterus, should I be getting ‘tested’ for endometriosis? I’m worrying that it is possible that I am developing endometriosis faster than other women in my family have and that when I try for a baby around the age of 24 or 25 I will have a long road of trying ahead of me!

    Also, does anyone know how mirena might effect endometriosis, if at all?

    Any input or stories about dealing with tilted uterus/endometriosis/fibroids while trying to conceive would be appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I have a tilted uterus and have had painful and heavy periods since I was 12 (when I wasn’t on the pill), but they aren’t caused by fibroids or endometriosis. It’s just the way I am. There was a time when titled uteruses were believed to be linked to infertility, but that’s pretty well been rejected by the medical community.

      None of these conditions were particularly problematic for me. I quit the pill @ 25 and was pregnant 3 months later.

      Most of the time, the uterus will “un-tilt” itself early in the pregnancy. (Mine did). If it doesn’t, your doctor might manually manipulate it so that it will be in the correct position for delivery. That’s really the only complication.

  4. QUESTION:
    I have adenymosis or Fibroids and endometriosis and I’m confused.?
    I was diagnosis with the adenymyosis and Fibroids back in August and have endo on top of it. We are trying to have a baby, but no success except 3 angel babies. Anyone else have this issue and what worked for them. The doctor only gave me a couple more years before a hysterectomy is to happened.
    Thank you so much.

    • ANSWER:
      Did you miscarry in the first trimester? If so, I’d try supplementing with progesterone.

  5. QUESTION:
    Question about endometriosis and fibroids?
    When I was younger 13-16 I had the most painful period cramps. I actually would pass out from the pain. My mom took me to a doctor a couple of times and I don’t remember them running any tests on me or being worried. They thought I could be anemic, but found that I wasn’t.

    It’s not nearly as painful now, but lately I have been hearing about endometriosis and fibroids which can cause very painful period cramps. So my question is why did doctors not check me for these things?

    • ANSWER:
      Because endometriosis tends to be something that grows in your body during your child-bearing years. It’s a lot less common in teenage girls.

      However, I’ve had it my whole life (unfortunately). Sometimes you just need to keep going back and seeing doctor after doctor until you find one who will listen to you.

      Of course, if your period is less painful now than it used to be, then your chances of having endometriosis are very slim. It generally gets worse with age, not better.
