Uterine Fibroids and Anemia-Solutions to Help With Fibroid Bleeding

If you are worried about uterine fibroids and anemia and would like to know if there are any solutions for fibroid bleeding, you have come to the right place. There are a number of simple steps you can take which will certainly help.

Some women experience bleeding throughout their menstrual cycle. For others, very heavy bleeding might be experienced during rather lengthy periods, lasting 7 days or more. Bleeding can be so severe that some women do not leave the house during their periods and may use plastic bedsheets at night. I also know of many women who use the thickest incontinence pads to help mop up the flow.

Because of heavy bleeding, women are right to worry about the association between uterine fibroids and anemia.

Fibroids can cause havoc with normal menstrual flow. There are a number of reasons for the increased bleeding and these include:-

* A blockage caused by the fibroid can inhibit normal menstrual flow causing blood to back up and seem heavier when finally released
* Uterine congestion changes the nature and flow of blood

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:
    I have uterine fibroids and have been bleeding 6 mos now. can I have an infection also inside the uterus?
    A friend told me since Ive been bleeding for so long that possibly i can have an infection in my uterus. Is that true because Im not having any problems besides the bleeding


    • ANSWER:
      No, that’s not true at all. Fibroids just cause alot of bleeding. There is a procedure that can be done in the hospital that is not surgery. Its called uterine fibroid embolization. A catheter is inserted into your femoral artery in your groin, and the doctor injects dye to locate the blood vessels supplying blood to the fibroids, he/she then injects a substance that blocks the blood supply and the fibroids die. This saves you from having a hysterectomy. You stay overnight and go home the next day. I have also seen patients go home the same day if its done early in the morning. Its done in the interventional radiology dept and patients do very well with it. I have seen it done many many times and also take care of the patient before and after. You should ask your ob/gyn about this procedure………

    I cured my severe fibroids by omitting ANY meat that had injected hormones in it. Fibroids are estrogen fed and they’ve been injecting that particular hormone in commercial meat for decades. See how our little girls are becoming woman much faster? It is related. My fibroids shrunk within 1 month and I had a reg. menstrual cycle my 2nd month. After 6 months, I decided to try to eat a steak at a popular steak house and the very next month…I had that horrible bleeding again. I have done this ‘experiment’ with different time frames (6 months, 8 months etc.) and it rings true every time. I eat that darn USDA meat and I get my fibroids back. I stop eating it and they diminish. I’ve also recommended to my daughter to quit eating fast food because she was suffering horrible cramping and clotting. She has stopped eating that crap and now has normal cycles as well. The solution is simple…stop eating synthetic hormones!
