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:
    38 weeks pregnant with fibroid tumors, what can I take to cut down on the bleeding during the delivery?
    One Dr told me that because of the fibroids, there is going to be alot of bleeding during the labor. I want to cut down on the bleeding and I was looking at the Red Raspberry Tea. The baby has turned head down but has not dropped, I am still working everyday and walking, she has not dropped either. Are there any suggestions from anyone?

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing you can take. The doctors will have to control. I am leary of herbal supplements, especially during pregnancy. Just because its natural does not mean its safe. Drink lots of water to keep up your blood supply. Other than that talk extensively with your OB and discuss your fears and the options. Knowledge is your best tool. I C-section is probably the best and only options i suppose.

      GOOD LUCK and BEST WISHES!!

  2. QUESTION:
    Do doctors remove fibroid tumors during a D&C?
    I am scheduled for a hystroscopic and D&C tomorrow for abnormal bleeding and fibroid tumors. The research I have done never indicates that they revove the fibroids. Yet, it is the fibroids and the tissues on the uterous that is causing the extreme bleeding.

    • ANSWER:
      D and C is a procedure to scrape and collect the tissue (endometrium) from inside the uterus. Dilatation (“D”) is a widening of the cervix to allow instruments into the uterus. Curettage (“C”) is the scraping of the contents of the uterus.
      Please see the web pages for more details and tutorials on Dilation and Curettage.

  3. QUESTION:
    do fibroid tumors bleed or have a leakage?
    I am not due for my monthly period for another 2 weeks and 2 days ago I spotted blood (and it was not like blood in my urine) while using the bathroom. Then I had like a brown colored discharge follow by a purple coloured discharge in the 2 days days following the spotting. It seems to be clearing up, but I want to know if fibroids leak and if so, or if not, should I consult my physician, or wait until june 8th when I go to see the specialist?

    • ANSWER:
      My mom had fibroids. They can cause spotting, but, of course, you should talk to your doctor. My mom had the fibroid immobilization surgery, and hasn’t had any problems for a while. Good luck! 🙂

  4. QUESTION:
    What treatment do you recommend for fibroid tumors?
    I was diagnosed with having fibroid tumors back in April. I have two tumors the size of golf balls on my uterus, so far non cancerous. I have some pain and discomfort and heavy uncontrolled bleeding spells. My gyn acts like it’s no big deal, but I don’t like feeling this way all the time. Does anyone have any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      The only treatment for fibroid tumors is surgery. All it is, is thick tissue that causes pain. I had them too and after a while, they had to be removed because they got so big. There’s no pill to make them go away. If you feel pain from them, use a warm heating pad and it really eases up the pain. Good luck
