Fibroids, what are they?
Fibroids are benign tumors composed primarily of uterine muscle that grows and can cause changes in the shape of the uterus. They can remain stable for many years, and then suddenly grow quite large in a short period of time. Common between 40 and 50 years of age, fibroids have no record of occurrence before the first menstruation and are more common in black women.
The main symptoms that affect women with uterine fibroids are heavy irregular menstruation for long periods – which can cause anemia – cramps, bleeding between periods, abdominal pain, pelvic and during sexual intercourse and frequent urinary problems such as urinary tract infection , cystitis, kidney infection and more frequent urge to urinate.
How to treat?
There are no effective treatments for its disappearance, but some medications prevent its growth or even temporarily reduce its size. In addition, treatment can be performed through Uterine Embolization. The technique is less risky than surgery, and consists of interrupting the blood circulation that irrigates the fibroids. The interruption is done by puncturing the Femoral artery and inserting a gelatinous substance that blocks the fibroid nourishment arteries. These, without blood supply, atrophy and die.
For those who choose to follow the drug treatment, as the surgical procedure can be expensive, you can complement it with medicinal plants.
