You should go to your local hospital and ask them to help guide you to get on public assistance. You should be able to get on Medicaid or another local program.

A 41-year-old female asked:

How can you shrink fibroids without surgery ?

Various: There is no medication to help fibroids shrink permanently. Medications like lupron, (leuprolide) depoprovera, etc may temporarily shrink the masses but their action is time limited. The only way to completely remove them is surgery. However, there are ways to destroy them without surgery as well. These include uterine artery embolization, ultrasound destruction, hysteroscopy if in the cavity.

u can get on meds: Like Depo-Provera Lupron (leuprolide) to shrink them but u can only take that for 6-12 months then must stop and fibroids can grow back, there is another procedure called pulsed ultrasound where depending on the density of the fibroid ultrasound waves are shot into the fibroid to shrink it so it is a surgical procedure, not covered by insurance and expensive, usually surgery needs to be done depending on how many where.
