Herbal Ayurveda Supplements To Cure Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Fibrocystic breast is a non cancerous condition characterized by the presence of cysts, or lumps, in the breasts. This condition is also known as fibrocystic changes, chronic cystic mastitis, mammary dysphasia, and although it is not actually a disease-fibrocystic disease.
It is caused by monthly changes in the levels of estrogen and progesterone. It affects more than half of all women of childbearing age, most often those between the ages of thirty and fifty.
Fibrocystic breasts are characterized by the presence of round lumps, or cysts, that move freely and are either firm or soft.
Symptoms include tenderness and lumpiness in the breasts. The discomfort is usually most pronounced before menstruation.
Many breast cysts swell before and during menstruation, and the resulting pressure can cause a feeling of fullness, a dull ache, increased sensitivity, or a burning sensation. Some women also experience significant pain.
Most cysts are harmless. In fact, the normal structure of the breasts has a lumpy texture. However, this does not mean that any lumps should be disregarded. Each woman should be familiar with the normal feel of and cyclical changes in her breasts so that she can easily detect any new lumps. Ideally, she should check her breasts weekly, and if any new lumps become apparent between menstrual cycles, she should consult her health care practitioner promptly.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any natural treatments/supplements to help with uterine fibroids?
Especially for shrinking them or eradicating them.
I talked with a friend of mine the other day in the store who was telling me the great success she has had in eradicating uterine fibroids. About a year ago she had surgery, but within a few months they were back with a vengence. Her chiropractor/ kinesiologist recommended she take 6 ounces of Gogi Juice a day for about two months. She is down to about an ounce twice a day and has reported that her fibroids are gone. I have not had experience with Gogi, but have had success with Mangosteen juices and Noni. Gogi is just a different plant with nutritional properties. It is a highly alkaline juice.
Have you dealt with your uterine fibroids using CAM techniques?
By CAM, I of course I mean complimentary & alternative medicine.
I just found out that the menstrual chaos I’ve been suffering from is due to uterine fibroids. I don’t like any of my allopathic options. I don’t like the pill because I believe that forcing fake hormones into my body is not a good idea for me. I don’t want to have any of the surgeries because either a) the fibroids will probably just come back, or b) I may become infertile. I always say I never want children & I’ve never had a relationship but I still have at least 10 years left of potential & the thought of ruining it forever is a bit scary. What if some bizarre miracle happens & I meet someone that I want to be with & have kids with?
So I’m wondering if anyone out there has been successful in dealing with fibroids naturally. Perhaps with acupuncture, herbs, supplements, etc. Even progesterone cream would be a better option.
Or, maybe just answer how you DID deal with them, & if it worked, no matter what it was.
I have friends who have had fibroids but they have never done anything with complementary alternative treatments. I would recommend checking for a gynecologist that does alternative treatments (they are available in some towns) to see what kind of options they might recommend.
I did read of a newer way to treat fibroids using ultrasound that was supposed to be very promising.
I have the link to a site that may help you find even more information. It’s at: http://forums.obgyn.net/womens-health
What can I do for fibroids?
I am pretty sure I have fibroids, heavy periods,painful periods,clots and prolonged periods. I am now on about day 13 of an excessively long period. I had all but stopped then BAM bleeding heavy again. I feel like I am anemic as well so any info on supplements to help with that. I don’t have insurance. I am the right age for fibroids and other women (sisters and mother) have all had them so I am 99% sure this is what’s going on with me. Any advice other then see a doctor ..I will when I can afford health insurance.
There is nothing you can do without seeing a doctor. There are different types of fibroids, some cause excessive bleeding. Why don’t you see if there is a Woman’s Clinic in your area, especially since you are anemic
Qn for female doctors please?
I’m a woman in mid 40s and have recently started having very heavy periods. This is worrying me as I never had this problem before. Also, I have had periods every 2 weeks for the last 2 months. It feels like something is not right. I have just started taking iron supplements now to alleviate any iron loss. There seems to be more ‘womb tissue’ than in a normal period. What can this be? Can it be cervical cancer? Fibroids? Just normal menopause? How serious can it be?
I’m not a doctor, but thought since no one answered I would answer to try to give you some information.
Abnormal uterine bleeding, heavy menstruation or menorrhagia is usually the result of a hormonal imbalance in adolescents during the years following the onset of menstruation, or in women who are approaching menopause.
Menstruation is often irregular or heavy during these times because, depending on hormonal levels, the ovaries may or may not release an egg. Another common cause of abnormal uterine bleeding is fibroid tumors.
Other causes of excessive bleeding that your doctor should consider include:
* Cervical or endometrial polyps
* Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
* Cervical cancer
* Endometrial cancer.
Women using intrauterine devices (IUDs) for birth control, may also experience excessive or prolonged periods. If you experience menorrhagia while using an IUD, the IUD should be removed and replaced with an alternative birth control method.
I would recommend consulting with your doctor/gynaecologist for further evaluation. They will need to run some tests in order to properly diagnose you with what could be the cause of this.
Good luck 🙂
Period-like vaginal bleeding for 4 weeks
Background: I’m 27 year-old female. I have 1 child and had a miscarriage in November 2005. I have gained a significant amount of weight over the past 2 years (about 50 lbs). I believe that I may have PCOS, because I have had abnormal or no periods over the past 2 years in addition to acne, some facial hair growth and symptoms of metabolic syndrome (boderline cholesterol, glucose, and carrying most of my weight around my middle.)
My question is this; I started my period on July 2, 2008. Nothing crazy, not real heavy, no cramping or anything. It lasted for about 5 days (like usual for me). I stopped for about 2 days and then started bleeding again. Not just spotting, I mean… full-blown period. This bleeding has been going on for about 4 weeks, and I am STILL bleeding! I thought it was worse in the AM, so I was thinking fibroids, but now I’ve realized that it is heavy all day long. It’s also more of a brighter red than I am used to for menstrual bleeding. I know that PCOS affects your hormones and maybe something is going on inside of me that is telling my body to bleed. I am starting to have cramps and feeling very tired. I have been taking Iron supplements and Ibuprofen to ease the cramping. And I have especially been having pain in my lower left side. I have had 1 ovarian cyst before, but this hurts waaaay worse.
Whats going on? Any ideas? I am sick of this. I do not have health insurance so I don’t want to go run up a bill at the hospital, but I am getting tired of this. I feel like the punchline of that joke, :why shouldn’t you ever trust a women? Because you don’t trust anything that can bleed for five days straight and not die!
By the way I’m a RN, so please don’t yell at me. Please let me know if anyone else has had anything like this.
You HAVE to see a doctor! No one on here can diagnose you.
