Uterine Fibroid Pain Relief-Treating Fibroids Naturally

Fibroids affect many millions of women worldwide and despite how common an affliction it is, most women are disappointment with their treatment options. Uterine fibroid pain relief can only truly be achieved by shrinking fibroids to a size where they are at least manageable or at best, completely gone.

Conventional treatments include drug therapy to alter the hormonal levels in the body, as these have an effect on fibroids. Lupron, for example, will stop the production of estrogen, but can only be used temporarily as the side effects are similar to those of the menopause, such as hot flashes, thinning of the vaginal skin and vaginal dryness, lowering of the sex drive and mood swings. In addition, if taken for long periods, this type of hormonal treatment can contribute to osteoporosis.

Of course, surgical removal of individual or groups of fibroids is an option, but unless the root cause is eliminated, the fibroids will begin to regrow within a few months of removal and can interfere with a future pregnancy plans. The last option, and the most radical, is a hysterectomy, and very few women will agree to this major surgical procedure unless there are no other options.

There are a few simple steps you can take for uterine fibroid pain relief.

* If you are taking any form of hormonal contraceptives, then these should be immediately discontinued as the estrogen content can fuel fibroid growth.
* Watch your diet! Flax seeds, soy beans and tofu all contain natural estrogen and should be avoided. Try to eat a good, healthy balanced diet and avoid eating processed meats.
* Avoid estrogen mimicking substances which can be found in pesticides and environmental pollutants. To remove any which are already stored in the body, a liver detox is the best thing you can do.
* Heat treatment is an excellent form of pain relief. Try using a heat pad on the abdomen and gently massage the affected area.

      Because your mom is having a lot of pain she needs to go back to her dr to have these fibroids treated. If her dr won’t do it then I would recommend that she get another opinion preferably from someone that is not in the same office of the dr she currently sees.

  3. QUESTION:
    I am 16 weeks pregnant and have a brown slimy discharge. Is this from fibroids?
    I have been having lots of pains around my belly button and on my right side. An ultrasound proved baby to be fine. I also have a UTI. Dr says the pains around my navel are from my stretching uterus. Has anyone else dealt with this?? Will these pains go away?? Any reason for concern about the brown discharge??

    • ANSWER:
      You know you can never go wrong with what your DR says. But always know if you need to go to the emergency room go. It is better to be safe than sorry.

  4. QUESTION:
    has any lady had nerve pain in the back or legs caused by pressure from uterine fibroids?

    • ANSWER:
      although i didnt have a fibriod i had nerve pain going down my thigh which was caused by my ovary being stuck which caused a trapped nerve and low pelvic pain so try not to worry but yes if you have a large fibroid your uterus could adhere to a nerve and cause pain down your leg and the only way to free it i would think would be surgery and may think about a hysterectomy if the fibroid is to large, hope all goes well for you x

  5. QUESTION:
    Is the recovery from partial laparoscopic hysterectomy, as bad as the excruciating pain of the fibroids?
    My periods are debilitating and literally as hardcore as child birth (vicodin or percocet with 600 mg of ibuprofin barely take the edge off) for 3 days out of the month, due to 3 large fibroids, inside my uterus (didn’t know birth control pills were making them bigger, while controlling period 🙁 ) So my question is, can my recovery be any WORSE than what I’ve been suffering monthly? I had a c section and was on vacation in a week, so does recovery compare to that in your opinion? Been off work leading up to surgery in days..I’m not sleeping and stressing a bit.. 3 Epidurals didn’t work on me,during childbirth. vicodin makes me vomit and percocet, I have to be flat in the bed or I vomit too. So any info you have would be really reassuring thanks
    doc/surgeon just gives generic answers, I’d like specific stories, but I probably won’t get them..oh well, I’m a quick healer and I really don’t think it could get any worse, at least it’s only my uterus otherwise I’d be kicking and screaming..
    Thanks Danger, that’s very sweet.. I appreciate that, yes pain was pretty much my determining factor to go under the knife, sick of it…who knew my birth control all these years was causing them to grow.. lovely docs

    • ANSWER:
      It will probably be easier to recover from than a c-section, actually–especially if it’s a vaginal hyst, though with large fibroids, maybe they can’t do it that way. Just make sure you take it easy anyway, and don’t lift anything heavy. By the way, I don’t think the birth control pills were making the fibroids any bigger than they would have been if you didn’t take the pills. Fibroids grow in the presence of hormones, and you would have those whether you took birth control pills or from your own ovaries.

      Oh, and while you’re in the hospital (unless they make you go home the same day), they should be giving you IV morphine, so you won’t have to take the Vicodin or Percocet. Tell the anesthesiologist about the situation to be sure you get what you need. It’s extremely painful to vomit after abdominal surgery, so that needs to be avoided at all costs (from personal experience). And you won’t need those painkillers for long. You can take 600mg of Ibuprofen instead. It’s maybe a little less good than Percocet, but given the bad pain you’ve been in up till now, there’s just no comparison. Even if you have NO painkillers after the first day, I will bet your pain will still be less than it currently is. You might wonder to yourself “how much pain will I be in?” and “if this is what I feel like WITH a painkiller, then it must be SO much worse without one.” But it’s not true in most cases of gyn surgery. The pain diminishes really fast in the days after surgery. I had a friend who had no painkillers (surgery was in a foreign hospital). The first day hurt a lot. Afterwards, she was fine. I myself in the days before IV morphine was the norm, only used percocet until the day after surgery.
