Is there any known way to prevent uterine fibroids?

Genetic Predisposed: There is probably a large genetic component and they are working on gene therapy, but that is a way off. Fibroid "food" is estrogen, so often unopposed estrogen can make it grow. Stay away from soy products or other phytoestrogens. I've heard that lysine (used for varicose veins) may help. Also, acupuncture may help. Fibroids usually create bleeding or pain depending on where their location is. ...Read more

What are fibroids? What causes them and how do you prevent them?

Genetic: Fibroids are caused by a mutation in the cells that keep reproducing and from the tumors. They also grow in response to estrogen. Some fat turns into estrogen, so a good diet, exercise and normal BMI may help a lot. If your mother had fibroids, you probably will. Big ones need to be treated. If they don't both you, they probably aren't that big. Www. Drschapirointhenews. Com ...Read more

Gyn, nj state. Can a large fibroid rapture or burst on top of the uterus? I feel like fibroids are pressing on the organs. What questions shod I ask?

Rupture unlikely...: Uterine fibroids don't generally rupture or burst. They can cause a lot of annoying symptoms like pressure, pain, heavy periods, painful periods, clots, etc. The most important things to know about fibroids is how big they are; where they are; and the severity of the symptoms they are causing. You also need to make sure there are no other issues such as an ovarian or tubal mass. Best wishes! ...Read more

I just started on levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birthcontrol, should I continue using it even if I have fibroids? Does it prevent cancer, im 32 never have kids

Eth. Estradiol lgest: First of all nothing prevents cancer, if anything, estrogen rich drugs could actually speed up development of some cancers. Second, some of the facts are available on http://www. Drugs. Com/mtm/levora. Html - but you need to discuss this with you practitioner, the one who prescribed the ethinyl Estradiol and Levonorgestrel to you. Are you at risk for any of the cancers? ...Read more

41yr, menorrhoea, fibroid, gums bleed, easy bruises, bruise goes after 3 to 4 weeks, can I drink lacto fermented drink "beet kvass"? For ibs, digestion

Iron Defici. Anemia: The symptoms you describe are typical of those associated with iron deficiency anemia. Uterine fibroids and heavy flow menses may lead to blood loss and iron depletion. The beet kvass would not do harm but it will not correct the problem. You need to visit your ob-gyn for a consultation and treatment. In the meantime eat food rich in iron such as beef, beans, lentils, dark leafy greens, artichokes. ...Read more

I am in my 40s can having small fibroids prevent me from gettin pregnant?

Yes, definitely: It depends on where the fibroids are. Fibroids that are on the inside of the uterus, or the lining of the uterus are most likely to cause infertility. If you are 42 years of age, that, too, is a significant factor. A prompt (as soon as possible) evaluation by an infertility doctor is your next step. ...Read more
