Obstetrics & Gynecology
In brief: See an GYN first
Sometimes fibroids can be treated by alternative methods such as uterine artery embolization, or focused ultrasound.
Fibroids under the lining of the womg(sub-mucosal) can be removed via outpatient hysteroscopic surgery. Otherwise, you will need a "lot of stock in kimberly- clark"(tampons and pads) on this trip. A low blood level(anemia) will also cause excessive fatigue on your trip.
