I have extremely painful periods and cannot function. Ultrasound showed 2 fibroids. What options do I have. Can they go away on their own?

In brief: Fibroids

Bad news is fibroids will not go away on their own.
Good news there are multiple options for treatment. The most important question when you look into treatment is your future plans for children. Options include removal of the fibroids, and how that is done depends on location, hysterectomy, uterine artery embolization are other options. All of these should be minimally invasive options.
