Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Your fibroids: Could be hurting that bad, if the pain is from the fibroids those 2 meds will not shrink or treat the fibroids , those 2 meds can stop your periods so you won't bleed or have pain on your period if they work in your case which they may or may not.
