At 2 cm, usually just the submucosal type would need to be removed. ...Read more

This phenomenon is easily explained by the fact that these fibroids will undergo spontaneous degenerationbecause of the declining estrogen levels. I would start with an ultrasound to confirm that they are shrinking and that they are the source of the pain. ...Read more
