Fibroids and Menopause



Will my fibroids shrink as I near menopause?

This is a question frequently asked by women.  The correct answer is, maybe.

The actual statistics are that 40-50{089f036bcf71a4101b04d04475126de09cd53d2a276176fb3b030106ba816fa1} of women experience significant shrinkage of fibroids as a result of reduced hormone levels.  Unfortunately, fibroids do not always disappear.  It’s best to create a plan of cautious monitoring with your gynecologist.  Considering your history, a more active approach may be required.

Some symptoms to look out for are:

– Spotting

– Discharge of an unusual color or unusual frequency

– Extended abdomen

– Increased or painful urination

Fibroids display uniquely in each person.  You know your body better than anyone.  If you have a concern, please reach out to a trusted physician, or a reputable source for a physician referral.

Be Well,
