Stopping Heavy Bleeding When You Have Fibroids

Fibroids often create severe menstrual problems, such as abnormal levels of bleeding, cramping, excessively long periods and anemia. There are a number of ways of stopping heavy bleeding when you have fibroids and one of these is to review your use of tampons.

We all have different coping strategies when bleeding is heavy. Some women might use plastic bedsheets, coupled with layers of towels, others might use multiple pads or those designed for heavy incontinence and others might wear tampons and pads at the same time as well as adopting other strategies. Indeed, many women find that they need to adopt a multifaceted approach to deal with the problems.

However, using tampons can actually make heavy bleeding worse and sometimes, stopping heavy bleeding when you have fibroids can be achieved by making a few subtle changes.

When the body perceives a foreign body within the pelvic area, this can cause cramping as the muscles contract in an attempt to expel it. Although we cannot determine the precise causes of fibroids, we do know some of the factors which can make them grow, thereby worsening symptoms. Tampons are generally created from a mixture of cotton and rayon and a fragrance agent. The cotton from which the tampons are made is very often grown in conditions which use sprays of herbicides and pesticides, both of which leave residues. These chemicals are believed to disrupt hormones, which, in itself, is a strong contributory factor in fibroid growth.

Stopping heavy bleeding when you have fibroids can sometimes be achieved by stopping using tampons. If you feel you cannot manage without them, the best alternative is to source some made from unbleached, organic cotton. Although a little more expensive, it will be well worth it. If you do decide not to use tampons, it will generally take a few weeks for the effects to be seen, although some women report a reduction in cramping pains within the first menstrual period.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Uterine fibroids, pain, heavy bleeding and irregular periods?
    I have multiple large and small fibroids, severe endometriosis, severe adhesions (they thought I’d had chemo). I used to have very regular periods but they are now irregular and heavy with a long pms time around when I expect a period. I was getting one heavy one about every other month having to change pads every 15 minutes for one day of it. And a lighter one in between with alot of spotting. But sometimes I can have pms symptoms like I’m starting and not start for a couple weeks. (They say it’s inoperable.) Is this common? What should I be worried about? What can I do?

    • ANSWER:
      I had this same problem in 2005, I experienced heavy bleeding and it continued for about a week, quit with just spotting and then back to bleeding again. This was so bad it put me in a very weak state and finally decided to visit obgyn and had blood test and ultra sound done. I was so low on blood that I had to have 4 pints replaced due to so much blood loss. The ultra sound showed a fibroid tumor. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in September 2005 and the tumor removed. The fibroid tumor was causing the main problem for me, making my periods unbearable. Now I feel fine health wise, my blood count is back up, but of course I went straight to menopause, but I’m handling it the best I can. I wish you luck, have your blood checked for anemia and an ultra sound to see where and how large the fibroids are.

    I had surgery back in September and start bleeding about a week ago…heavier than normal why is this?

    • ANSWER:
      My wife had the same problem after treatment for fibroids.Your uterus has lost it’s lining from the surgery and is bleeding heavier,because the blood vessels are closer to the surface.Give it a month or two to regain the tissue that was scraped out and see your doctor if you feel faint or light headed from the blood loss.Once you have surgury,it can take weeks for it to heal.Try to rest as much as possible.
