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
* An increase in blood vessels occurs when fibroids form, resulting in an increased blood flow

Fibroid bleeding can be reduced by trying some of the following steps. In addition, the anemia caused by uterine fibroids will also be helped. It’s best to experiment and maybe take a doctors advice to see which are best for you:-

* Start taking supplements of Vitamins A C and E. In addition, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 are good for uterine fibroids and anemia
* Try an anti-inflammatory, such as Ibuprofen
* Lie down regularly with your legs raised
* Avoid tampons
* Use a heat pad to improve the flow of blood to the pelvic region
* Eat healthy, iron rich foods such as lean organic beef, dark green leafy vegetables and egg yolks

Of course, the best solution is a permanent one and due to the nature of fibroids, conventional medication can only bring symptomatic relief. The causes of your fibroids remain and they will often regrow, even after drug treatment and surgery.

Natural methods work very well for some women concerned about uterine fibroids and anemia and when used properly, can provide a long term solution.

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 a small case of anemia and i am wondering if the fibroids are the cause.?
    i had my fibroids removed ten years ago . I am now 42 and thinking about trying to conceive once again . My gyn told me i had fibroids but we chose not to remove them as i was trying to conceive last year. I mentined to him before my periods was kinda of heavy and he said it was not that much blood to be concerned? Now for the last six months my period are beyond belief with clots and my physical turned that i have a small case of anemia ! I am always freezing!! i am wondering if the fibroids are causing the anemia. I definately do not want to remove my utereus! I am concerned about the anemia. I have grave’s disease and so far my tests show i am stable. Will the fibroids cause massive bleeding? The first fibroids were removed due to pain. I am not in pain but the bleeding every month has turned heavier to the point i am changing pads every two hours with the Poise pads which I am doubling up on.
    i am going to call the gyno in the morning but i rather schedule to see him by the end of the week when i am not so heavy. I am a bit concerned because if any surgery is needed i will then turn 43 and of course when trying to conceive time is ticking. The only reason now we are tryign to conceive again is becuase i lost almost 40 pounds so we were hoping that would help with conception. Please serious answers please. thanks@!
    I also noticed i am tired! even when i go to the gym. I take a multi vitamin starting this week and i the thyroid doctor recommended another iron pill which i will pick up tomorrow. So i am wondering if the fibroids and the anemia are tied together so any suggestions is appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      All I can tell you, is I have had Fibroids all my life….I’m a grmother….and have not had one ounce of trouble from them. Nothing. Didn’t even know they were there. Was told to have a hysterectomy when I was 32, but didn’t….still there…no problem.

  2. QUESTION:
    If anyonr in here has Endometrisis, Anemia, Premenopause, Hemmorrhage, Fibroids, Menorrhagia, and etc…?
    Please tell me what it is and waht it can do to you!! I might have any thing like or similiar to those things and I need to know, Because I am very WORRY!

    • ANSWER:
      All the things you’ve asked about can be separate or you can have them overlapping or at the same time. So some definitions:
      1.Endometriosis- it’s a disease where menstrual tissue will wash backwards instead of outside, and will implant outside of the uterus causing pain, abnormal bleeding, etc.
      2.Anemia- disease causing fatigue, changes in the pallor of skin, physical strength, resistance to other disease, caused by lack of iron, or inheritance disease such as deformed red blood cells, or problems with the oxygen-carrying cells, among other reasons.
      3.Premenopause- now referred to Perimenopause-it’s the time before menopause where the ovaries are beginning to slow down, and women start to experience physical changes such as, menstrual changes of flow, amount,color,etc.
      4. Hemorrhage-excessive amount of bleeding resulting in volume of fluids in the body decreasing and causing health problems.
      5.Fibroid- fibrous tumors,usually benign, that can cause hemorrhage sometimes. If symptomatic treat, if non symptomatic, don’t treat.
      6.Menorrhage- hemorrhage (excessive volume) of menstrual blood.
      I’ve tried to keep the definitions as simple as possible so not to confuse you with medical terms. I hope this helps.

  4. QUESTION:
    i was diagnosed with prenicious anemia ?
    just recently i found out i have pernicious anemia and i am borderline from needing a blood transfusion to make matters worse i also need either a hysteroscopy done or thermal-choice for uterine fibroids …..will i need a transfusion after either procedure ?

    • ANSWER:
      That will depend entirely on how much more blood you use and whether or not your doctor thinks you need it. The pernicious anemia is treated with B12 injections. I was diagnosed with that five years ago and have yet to need a transfusion. Just B12 injections every 6 weeks. Good luck with everything!

  5. QUESTION:

    She is taking iron supplements, but she went to get an ultrasound of her uterus to see if she is losing blood through her menstrual cycle…
    And they found that there were 3 fibroids in the uterus, does that mean that this is the cause of her anemia, shes losing blood through her menstrual cycle?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes that is what it means.
