Fibroids

Fibroids, or myomas, are growths or benign tumours that form inside the uterus (womb). Around four in 10 women over the age of 40 years will have fibroids. It is not known why fibroids develop, but it is thought that the sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, play key roles. This is because fibroids rarely grow in girls before puberty and women after menopause. Pre-existing fibroids stop growing and can even shrink in women after menopause.

What may contribute to Fibroids

  • Oestrogen dominance
  • Oral Contraceptives
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee
  • Obesity
  • Smoking

How can Fibroids be affecting you?

Most women with fibroids do not have symptoms. When symptoms are present, they can include:

  • Abdominal bleeding, menorrhagia (longer than 7 days menstruation), metrorrhagia (bleeding that occurs between menstrual cycle)
  • vague feeling of discomfort, pressure, congestion, bloating, heaviness in abdomen
  • a lump or swelling in the lower abdomen
  • feeling of heaviness or pressure in the back, bowel and bladder

  • pain during sex

     

Fibroids can cause a range of complications, including the following:

  • Anaemia – excessive menstrual blood loss can cause anaemia
  • Menorrhagia / Metrorrhagia – Abnormal bleeding
  • Problems urinating – larger fibroids press against the bladder. This can cause a feeling of fullness or discomfort and the need to urinate often.
  • Infertility – fibroids can interfere with implantation of the fertilised egg in a number of ways.
  • Miscarriage and premature delivery – fibroids can reduce blood flow to the placenta or compete for space with the developing baby.

How can Fertility and Wellbeing help you? 

Acupuncture and chinese medicine has been treating Fibroids with great results for years. Acupuncture addresses and relieves heavy bleeding associated with Fibroids which is generally the main complaint of the condition. Women with Fibroids tend to have a dominance of oestrogen in their system (not necessarily too much oestrogen) which as a result, strains the function of the liver. If the liver is already under pressure it is unable to break down harmful types of oestrogen ….. Our treatments encourage the liver detoxification pathways which as a result 
 
Although western medicine can surgically remove Fibroids, they will generally resolve during menopause.
 
Even if Fibroids are surgically removed, it is important to treat the cause of the condition so there are no further problems arise as a result in the future.
