Large Fibroids And Pregnancy

Treating Large Uterus Fibroids Naturally

If you have large uterus fibroids, you may have already looked at your treatment options and decided that conventional surgical methods are not for you. Although there is no doubt that surgery can be effective as a “quick fix” in the short term, fibroids are likely to regrow unless you are able to completely eliminate the root causes.

Very often, doctors recommend a “wait and see” approach, as fibroids are rarely dangerous and will naturally shrink during the menopause. However, if your symptoms are severe and you are several years away from the menopause, this may not feel like a satisfactory option!

However, the very fact that fibroids are not usually harmful gives you the benefit of having time to think your treatment options through carefully. In addition, it gives you the opportunity to try an approach which might not give instant results, but could well be the best solution in the short term.

If you are prepared to put in some effort and take responsibility for your own healing, then treating large uterus fibroids naturally is entirely possible. By using an approach which eliminates all the possible root causes whilst offering symptomatic relief, much can be gained.

Natural treatment often begins by focusing on estrogen levels. It is a well known fact that an excess of this hormone implicated in fibroid growth. Whilst it doesn’t necessarily follow that all women with high estrogen levels will have large uterus fibroids, almost all women who have developed fibroids will have elevated levels. This is because it is believed that there are other factors which subtly interact with the raised estrogen levels, triggering fibroid growth.

One simple step you can take to reduce your estrogen levels is maintaining a healthy weight. Fat cells both store and manufacture estrogen and so losing weight will have the side effect of estrogen reduction. In addition, cutting down on your consumption of animal fats and non-organic meats will also help. Additionally, it is believed that estrogen-mimicking compounds can become locked in the liver, exerting a constant effect. These are very difficult to eliminate, but one satisfactory way is to undergo a thorough liver detox.

Another way of treating large uterus fibroids naturally is to look at your diet. A healthy diet which includes 5-7 portions of fresh fruits and vegetables is always beneficial. If you have fibroids though, you should ensure that you stick to organic produce and avoid artificial additives. You should also include at least 2 liters of filtered water each day as this will help flush toxins out of the body.

The lack of comprehensive “real” help for women led an alternative practitioner to develop a complete system for treating large uterus fibroids naturally which mirrored what she taught women in her busy clinic. Her unique, 7 Step Plan has been successfully used by many thousands of women worldwide and for those who are willing to take charge of their own treatment and recognize that they will have to play an active role in their own healing, then this is simply ideal. If, however, you are the type of person who will simply expect to take a pill and be cured, then this is maybe not the right system for you.

  2. QUESTION:
    What are the risks during early pregnancy if a woman has fibroids 7-9 weeks large?
    If she had 1 miscarrige 2 years ago, what are the chances of bringing forth a healthy baby ? Right now she’s possibly only 3 weeks pregnant. I said possibly because she is pre-menopausal and not sure if she’s pregnant or just irregular. (will be 40 years in July). She now feels tingling all over.Act took place 1x on March 19th but she did not see her period for over 60 days. What can be done to save the baby and go to full term at this point? She never gave birth.

    • ANSWER:
      check with the gynecologist.

      i think the baby will be all right. the miscarage was 2 years ago the baby should be fine.

      but check

      thats not my medical field.

  3. QUESTION:
    I have large fibroids in my uterus (5 month pregnant) and c-section will be performed. Will it be painful?
    I went to see the gyc. and she said that she will not touch the fibroids during C-section. If she does what are the chances of Hysterectomy (removal of uterus) ? I am scared as it is my first pregnancy and I need more kids. Will these fibroids decrease in size by themselves or I need the treatment after pregnency?

    • ANSWER:
      “After pregnancy, fibroids tend to shrink in size, and probably won’t cause you any problems.” I found a website that might be able to answer some of your questions.

  4. QUESTION:
    Did anyone get pregnant while having the uterine fibroids and regretted it later?
    My doctor tells me I should have fibroids removed before I get pregnant because of possible complications to pregnancy. But I know there are possible complications to surgery too.

    I lave 6 large fibroids, all intramural, the largest measuring 6 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter

    • ANSWER:
      I did conceive w/ 6 large fibroids(inside & outside uterus) in ’06. I will admit that I was in alot of pain b/c the fibroids began growing w/ the baby. He was born prematurely @ 5 months due to an infection…not b/c of the fibroids. We tried conceiving for almost a year w/ fertility drugs but nothing happened. I finally convinced myself to have the tumors removed b/c it seemed like that was the last resort. I had them removed in April and we accidentally conceived in that month as well! Oops! The doctor told us we could resume our activity…we just didn’t think it would result in a baby esp since we had been trying for a year. But I feel so much better having them removed and not having that stress and strain on my body and the baby. I would advise anyone who has fibroids to have them removed by a dr who specialized in preserving the uterus b/c I was originally told I would have to have a hysterectomy. I am an advocate for the surgery…best wishes!

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had fibroids during pregnancy?
    The ultrasound technician found multiple fibroids on the outside of my uterus durning my ultrasound in Dec. My doctor told me at my last appt. that the largest one is the size of a softball. I have to go in for another ultrasound the end of the month and if it has grown, it possibly will have to be surgically removed before I deliver in April. Has anyone else had one this big and what happened during your last trimester. I know everyone is different but I’m just curious. This large fibriod has been causing me discomfort and pain for the last 3 months.

    • ANSWER:
      I feel for you! I too have fibroid tumor growth, but on the inside of my uterus. During my gall bladder surgery they tried to investigate further, only to discover it was inside my uterus forcing me to hang on until the end of my pregnancy to decide what to do.

      The pain is very uncomfortable, and initially they found it because I was in so much pain that it was presenting as a ruptured appendix! So far, there hasn’t been anything besides having a warm bath or relaxing which has eased the discomfort for me. Even a warm cloth is nice to aid in some of the discomforts.

      Gently massaging the area could also help you in the meantime.

      Wishing you all the best, and try to relax as much as possible. 🙂 It’s almost over!
