What Causes Fibroids in the Uterus?
If you are wondering what causes fibroids in the uterus, the truth is that there is no single cause. Fibroids are thought to form due to the subtle interaction of a number of primary and secondary factors which happen to coincide, causing growth to start. These factors include a combination of dietary issues, your lifestyle, environmental factors, your internal and external balance, poor health, a weakened immune system, toxic build up and a lack of exercise.
One of the reasons why Western medicine seems to fail in treating fibroids in the uterus is because it tends to focus on dealing with isolated symptoms, or the affected parts of the body, rather than looking at treating the body as a whole and eliminating the root causes of the condition. Put simply, because the causes are multidimensional, then successful treatment must also use an approach which deals with each and every potential cause.
Some of us are more genetically prone to have fibroids, but this in itself is unlikely to cause fibroids in the uterus. It is only when combined with other likely factors that fibroids will start to grow. Indeed, despite a genetic tendency, there is much we can do to prevent fibroids and we can really make a difference by changing our diet and lifestyles.
When looking at what causes fibroids in the uterus, we can isolate it to 5 primary causes:-
1. Genetic Predisposition
2. Poor Dietary Choices
3. Weakened Immune System
4. Accumulation of Toxins (including environmental toxins)
5. Insulin Resistance and Obesity
These 5 factors, coupled with other issues such as hormonal imbalances, taking medication such as antibiotics, steroids, certain prescription medication stress and lack of sleep provide the perfect environment for fibroids to grow.
However, don’t lose heart. These issues can be reversed by using a natural method to eliminate all the common (and less common!) causes of fibroids.

I had Fibroid removal surgery in April and it took care of a lot of the problems. I have always had them but pregnancy made them get bigger.
I was also in the process of being a Surrogate and found out that Estrogen makes them get bigger. Mine got so big that the doctor said that if I was to get pregnant that there would not be enough room for me to carry a baby to full term. Subsequently I had a miscarriage with my couple because of their size.
Go to another doctor because yours does not seem to know his A$$ from his hand (excuse the lang.)! They cause heavy bleeding, clotting and bad cramping. They, YES, can cause infertility unless taken care of.
My doctor now (whom is male) is a second opinion doctor that I went to because my original doctor (a female) said that I should get a complete hysterectomy at the age of 31. NO WAY! I AM TOO YOUNG! My new doctor said that I would be better off having a hysteroscopy and that my uterus was the size of a womans whom would be 8-10 weeks pregnant. They ended up taking out one that was 6mm by 6 1/2mm and becoming neucrotic along with 2 medium sized ones and 5 smaller ones. Now I am completely healed and feel better than ever! I look thinner now too!
A lot of women have them but they usually don’t cause any problems. My doctor said that by menopause most women have them but don’t feel them because menstration has stopped. Also by that time some are getting hysterectomys and they go away at that time.
Please if you only remember one thing about my letter, is that above all else, get a second opinion. And a third if you are not satisfied with what you are hearing.
Good luck to you! 🙂
P.S. I looked on www.webmd.com to get info on fibroids and their treatment. Maybe it will help you in making an informed decision.

you to ultrasound your uterus. They want to do a hysterectomy! Is this a reason for it and what should i expect from the surgery? How many days in the hospital? thanks
i’m 39, i suffer from severe periods. I get them every 2 1/2 weeks, lasting 10 days & very bad bleeding!
Yes. If your fibroids are symptomatic (bleeding, pain etc) and especially if your family is complete get it done. There are two ways of doing a hysterectomy and you don’t say how they plan to do yours. I have given you two useful and reliable links.
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?
“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.
