ALL YOU NEED TO KNOWN ABOUT FIBROID

 

1. WHAT NOT TO EAT WHEN YOU HAVE FIBROIDS?

High-fat Dairy Products

Women with fibroid tumors are encouraged to limit consumption of high-fat dairy products such as whole milk, cream and butter. These products are often high in added hormones that can feed your tumors. Opt for organic hormone-free products for your dairy consumption.

 

Caffeine Laden Beverages

Beverages containing caffeine are on the list of foods to avoid when you have fibroids on your uterus. William E. Richardson of the Atlanta Clinic of Preventative Medicine warns against drinking these beverages due to their high level of methylanthins which, in turn, cause a high level of biochemicals in the body that can form tumors. Stay away from caffeinated sodas, tea, chocolate and coffee. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, coffee beans are often sprayed with the chemical DDT.

 

Red Meat

Red meat from mammals and duck are not recommended for those with fibroids. These foods are likely to be high in added hormones, including estrogen. Eat lean white meat for a protein source instead.

 

Saturated Fats

Foods high in saturated fats should not be consumed by fibroid patients. These fats can raise the estrogen level, which allows fibroids to grow larger. These foods are also hard on the liver, making it difficult for the body to break down and rid itself of the excess hormones. Avoid bacon, sausage, egg yolks, avocados and high-fat processed snacks such as cookies and pastries, which are loaded with saturated fats.

 

White Foods

Lower the amount of “white” foods you consume. According to Healthy.net, these foods alter estrogen metabolism and can cause fibroids to grow larger. These foods include pasta, white bread, white rice, cakes and cookies.

2. HOW DO YOU SHRINK FIBROIDS?

Uterine fibroids, or leiomyomata, are non-cancerous tumors that form on the uterus. At some point in their lives, up to 70% of women will develop fibroids. Normally, fibroids do not cause any symptoms. But sometimes they can cause pain and heavy bleeding. If fibroids are causing pain or other symptoms, consult us at I.A&S WELLNESS CENTRE to help you shrink your fibroids naturally

3. IS FIBROIDS CURABLE?

YES. It is curable but the size decreases after menopause mostly but until then if it increases in size then it might lead to heavy bleeding or pressure symptoms. If it is small less than 2 cms in size and not giving any symptoms or is accidentally discovered on usg then it should be left alone.

4. HOW DO YOU REMOVE FIBROIDS?

Our fibroids solution kits has no limit for fibroid size, number, or location. Even large fibroids can be removed with our fibroids solution kits.

5. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM FIBROID SURGERY?

How much time you take to recover from the surgery will also depend on the method used for the surgery. But in most cases it takes a very long time.

6. CAN FIBROIDS KILL PEOPLE?

Fibroids themselves won’t kill–meaning you’re not going to die simply because you have fibroids; but you can develop complications because of your fibroids and some of the complications can be life threatening. I think the heavy bleeding that some fibroid suffers experience is one of the more serious issues that could potentially put their life at risk.

fibroids can cause painful periods and make sex unpleasant. They can also affect your chances of getting (and staying!) pregnant, as well as your method of delivery.

7. CAN FIBROIDS BURST?

Fibroids may cause a gushing flow, the passage of large clots, and severe cramps. Because they are firm, fibroids can not burst

8. WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF FIBROIDS ARE NOT REMOVED?

There are several myths that can cause a woman to delay fibroid surgery, doing more harm than good.

MYTH 1: FIBROIDS WILL DISAPPEAR AFTER MENOPAUSE.

As fibroids continue to grow, symptoms like pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding can worsen. First, for any woman to be expected to suffer with pain or cope with embarrassing situations like having to change clothes in the middle of work, or not being able to leave the house for fear of an uncontrolled bleed until menopause is extremely inconvenient. Second, while estrogen diminishes during menopause, it doesn’t disappear, and as fibroids need estrogen to grow, they too will not suddenly vanish.

MYTH 2: FIBROIDS DON’T AFFECT FERTILITY

An estimated 6.7 million women experience the heartache of infertility or miscarriage. This is often due to a less than optimal environment in the uterus. Yet, 6 in 10 women dispute (or are unaware) that fibroids affect fertility.

Fibroids can block fallopian tubes, making it difficult for a fertilized egg to make it into the uterus. This can potentially cause an ectopic pregnancy within the tube, a life threatening condition for the mother. Fibroids can make it difficult for an embryo to attach to the uterine wall, or if they are very large, can impede the growth of a fetus. In addition, many women with fibroids end up delivering prematurely, putting the infant at risk.

9. CAN FIBROIDS BE TREATED WITHOUT SURGERY?

YES. The important way on how to get rid of fibroids without surgery is through the use of herbal medicines. Nature has many solutions to the many health problems we deal with and there are many natural remedies that can help fight against fibroids that you should be aware of if you want to eliminate fibroids naturally.

10. CAN FIBROIDS CAUSE YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT?

YES. Uterine Fibroids are a non-cancerous overgrowth in muscles and tissues in the uterus. Some of the fibroids are small and usually go unnoticed by women who has them. However a well-developed fibroid can weigh between 20 to 40 pounds. That is a lot of extra weight in abdomen.

Fibroids usually grow over a period of time if not treated and may consequently results in weight gain. When fibroids grow in certain size or if located in specific areas of abdomen, it can start appearing as swelling in the abdomen. It may make you look like a 6 months pregnant women.

11. WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF FIBROIDS SHRINKING?

Abdominal Pain Diminishes

According to Women’s Health Information, fibroids can develop and shrink of their own accord—most come and go without being noticed. Larger fibroids cause abdominal pain and discomfort, and can feel like constant period pain. If a fibroid is the cause of abdominal pain and cramps, a cessation or diminishing of this pain is a sign that the fibroid is shrinking. Ultrasonic testing can confirm this shrinkage.

Painless Sexual Intercourse

If painful intercourse is a marked symptom of a fibroids, as is the case with many sufferers, then achieving intercourse without pain is a sign that the fibroid has shrunk. According to Shrink Fibroids Naturally, painful intercourse is mostly associated with intramural fibroids, but depends on the location of the fibroid being close enough or large enough to be pressed through the vaginal wall during intercourse.

Regular Period

A very common symptom of fibroids is irregular and overly heavy menstrual bleeding. For women whose periods have been affected by fibroids, attaining a regular period cycle is a sign that the fibroids have shrunk. Vaginal bleeding between periods is also caused by fibroids in the uterus. Cessation of vaginal bleeds between cycles and the establishment of a single monthly bleeding cycle is a sign of fibroid shrinkage.

Normal Urination

According to Shrink Fibroids Naturally, urination is also affected by fibroids. Fibroids cause more frequent urination, and often cause the urge to urinate without actually passing water. This occurs when the fibroids put pressure on the urinary tract and send confused signals to the brain. When fibroids that have caused urinary problems shrink, the urinary cycle returns to normal.

Pregnancy

Fibroids can be a cause of infertility. If they are pressing on the fallopian tube, they may be stopping ovule release and can block the passage of sperm to the egg. If infertility has been the main symptom of fibroids, then becoming pregnant is a sure sign that the fibroids have shrunk. For women who get pregnant after having fibroids, extra care during pregnancy is needed to ensure they don’t return.

12. CAN FIBROIDS CAUSE BLOATING AND WEIGHT GAIN?

Fibroids, or leiomyomas, are benign tumors of the muscular layer of the uterus. They are extremely common, occurring in up to 50% of middle aged women. The most common symptoms from fibroids include abdominal pain and cramping, heavy menstrual bleeding, and periods. However, fibroids do not specifically cause weight gain. There are numerous other causes of bloating and weight gain which could be considered. As you say, sometimes this is just due to a lack of exercise and a need to control one’s weight. Other considerations might include constipation, which can often cause bloating. Irritable bowel syndrome commonly causes bloating and the stomach upset associated with it may cause weight swings.

13. CAN FIBROIDS MAKE YOUR STOMACH BULGE?

YES. The uterus is a muscular organ that is designed to expand from the size of your fist to the size of a watermelon to accommodate a growing baby. But if you are not pregnant and experiencing bloating or a bulging stomach you need to call your doctor.

An enlarged uterus can contribute to many different conditions such as lower abdominal pain, bloating and constipation, headaches, problems with menstruation, frequent urination, pregnancy or conception problems.

An enlarged uterus can be caused by several conditions. One of the most common causes of an enlarged uterus and protruding belly is uterine fibroids. Fibroids are the most common and benign tumors of the female reproductive tract but present many painful symptoms. Some fibroids are very small but others can grow very large. The size of the fibroids determines the severity of the symptoms that accompany them. Fibroids may cause weight gain in women suffering from this condition.

14. CAN FIBROIDS CAUSE BLOATING AND GAS?

YES. As a fibroid grows in size, it can cause the abdomen to bloat and become visibly swollen. … Other symptoms of fibroids include heavy periods, prolonged bleeding during menstruation, frequent urination, difficulty completely emptying the bladder, constipation and pain in the back.

15. DO FIBROIDS GO AWAY ON ITS OWN?

Yes. Fibroids are a result of high estrogen levels. High estrogen can be caused by excessive carbohydrate intake (via competetive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) therefore a low carb diet is beneficial to reduce estrogen and help shrink fibroids. You may also have low iodine, thyroid problems, low progesterone. All of these things should be evaluated. All phytoestrogens should be avoided.

16. CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT IF YOU HAVE FIBROIDS?

A common symptom of fibroids is unexplained weight gain, often visualized by the distension of the abdomen. It is not uncommon for women with fibroids complain of having a pregnant-like belly from their fibroids, and the doctor often describes the uterus size as a number of weeks pregnant. Furthermore, professionals have noted a link between being overweight and developing fibroids.

Fibroid growth is triggered by estrogen, which can be overproduced by excess abdominal fat. This means that the more overweight you are, the more susceptible you are to fibroids, which may cause you to gain even more weight. This weight gain may be inadvertent, as other fibroid symptoms such as pain, pressure, and excessive bleeding may force women to limit their physical activity.

A great way to reduce fibroid burden, or prevent fibroid growth in some cases, is weight loss. This is particularly important if you are already carrying excess abdominal fat. Not only will you be healthier overall, but also it can slow fibroid growth, and relive some symptoms, such as a swollen midsection and abdominal pain and pressure.

You may be thinking that exercise may be impossible with the debilitating symptoms of your fibroids. However, changing your diet and cutting calories with light physical activity can make a difference. Simply by walking more and eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and low-fat dairy. An easy way to kick start your diet is to exchange some high calorie processed foods or sugary drinks for low calorie whole foods options. This could be as simple as switching that bag of chips for a piece of fruit as an afternoon snack.

Although losing weight may not cure your fibroids, it can improve symptoms, and prevent further growth.

17. CAN YOU EXERCISE IF YOU HAVE FIBROIDS?

Yes. Because exercise helps to prevent and reduce estrogen in fibroid.

Fibroid development and growth in the uterus is regulated by estrogen and progesterone, the two hormones that regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle. Exercise has been shown to reduce the amount of these circulating hormones, which is why fibroid growth may be prevented by regular exercise. It has been shown that BMI (body mass index) is correlated with fibroids, so by reducing BMI through regular exercise women may be able to have an impact on fibroid growth.

By engaging in protective activities such as regularly exercising and maintaining a healthy weight, you may be able to reduce your chances of developing symptomatic fibroids.

18. CAN YOU PASS OUT FIBROIDS?

fibroids can detach from the uterine wall, and then pass out through the vagina or require removal if they are larger in size. Passage can happen up to a year or longer after the procedure, and can be associated with foul smelling discharge or severe pain.

19. CAN FIBROID CEASE MENSTRATION?

In most cases, underlying health problems  cause late or missed menstruation. Hormonal imbalances and endocrine problems can affect the menstrual cycle, as can ovarian cysts and fibroid tumors. Medications for health problems unrelated to reproduction can also cause your period to cease.

20. HOW CAN SUBMUCOSAL FIBROIDS BE REMOVED?

Submucosal Fibroids: These are fibroids that grow into the inner layer of the uterus. Submucosal fibroids may increase the size of the uterine cavity causing the sperm to swim longer distance.

Submucosal fibroid can be removed by doing the followings

  1. Avoid foods that make fibroids worse.
  2. Eat foods that help relieve fibroids.
  3. Try supplements that aid in fibroid reduction.
  4. Turn to essential oils.
  5. Sip on herbal teas.
  6. Try castor oil packs.
  7. Avoid exposure to environmental toxins.
  8. Exercise

21.  IS A MYOMECTOMY A MAJOR SURGERY?

YES.  Myomectomy is a surgery to remove fibroids without taking out the healthy tissue of the uterus. It is best for women who wish to have children after treatment for their fibroids or who wish to keep their uterus for other reasons. You can become pregnant after myomectomy.

22. CAN YOU REMOVE FIBROIDS WITHOUT HAVING A HYSTERECTOMY?

Hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus. The ovaries may also be removed, although this is not necessary for fibroid treatment. Hysterectomy is a permanent solution for fibroids, and is an option if other treatments have not worked or are not appropriate.

23. HOW DO YOU REMOVE FIBROIDS?

Fibroid can be removed through Abdominal Myomectomy — During this operation, an incision is made through the skin on the lower abdomen (a “bikini cut”). The fibroids are removed from the wall of the uterus, and the uterine muscle is sewn back together using several layers of stitches.

24. WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF FIBROID SURGERY?

The spread of cancer is not the only potential risk of fibroid surgery, there are lots of other issues that have been reported medically as negative side effects of fibroid surgery and some of them are highlighted below;

Excessive Blood Loss – Many women already have low blood counts (anaemia) due to heavy menstrual bleeding, so they’re at a higher risk of problems due to blood loss. Your doctor may suggest ways to build up your blood count before surgery. During myomectomy, surgeons take extra steps to avoid excessive bleeding, including blocking flow from the uterine arteries and injecting medications around fibroids to cause blood vessels to clamp down.

Scar Tissue – Incisions into the uterus to remove fibroids can lead to adhesions — bands of scar tissue that may develop after surgery. Outside the uterus, adhesions could entangle nearby structures and lead to a blocked fallopian tube or a trapped loop of intestine. Rarely, adhesions may form within the uterus and lead to light menstrual periods and difficulties with fertility (Asherman’s syndrome). Laparoscopic myomectomy may result in fewer adhesions than abdominal myomectomy (laparotomy).

Childbirth Complications – A myomectomy can increase certain risks during delivery if you become pregnant. If your surgeon had to make a deep incision in your uterine wall, the doctor who manages your subsequent pregnancy may recommend cesarean delivery (C-section) to avoid rupture of the uterus during labor, a very rare complication of pregnancy.

25. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM A MYOMECTOMY?

You can expect to feel better and stronger each day, although you may get tire quickly and need pain medicine for a week or two. You may need about 4 to 6 weeks to fully recover. Do not lift anything heavy while you are recovering so that your incision and your belly muscles can heal.

26. ARE UTERINE FIBROIDS SERIOUS?

YES. If you have uterine fibroids, you may never even notice that they are there. Ranging from the size of a small seed to grapefruit-sized, fibroids are tumors on the uterus that rarely cause harm. Some women have true discomfort with fibroids, including pain in the abdomen or low back, or pain during sex. Sometimes, uterine fibroids can cause miscarriage, preterm labor, or even lead to infertility.

27. DO FIBROID TUMORS GROW FAST?

Fibroids are almost always benign (not cancerous). Fibroids can grow as a single tumor, or there can be many of them in the uterus. They can be as small as an apple seed or as big as a grapefruit. In unusual cases they can become very large.

28. CAN A TUMOR BE MISTAKEN FOR A FIBROID?

This latter requirement is essential, as an ovarian tumor may be mistaken for a fibroid, and ovarian tumors have a much higher likelihood of being cancerous. INDICATIONS FOR TREATMENT: a) Fibroids that are larger than a 12-14 week pregnancy (e.g. a large grapefruit).

29. CAN BREAST FIBROIDS TURN INTO CANCER?

YES

Breast fibroids, also known as fibrocystic breast disease, fibroid breasts, mammary dysplasia, benign breast disease and diffuse cystic mastopathy, are benign (non-cancerous), moveable, rubbery nodules that cause painful swelling near the breast surface.

Breast fibroids are quite common, particularly in women who are 30 years of age or older. Approximately 33% of them suffer from breast fibroids because of the cumulative effect of monthly menstrual and hormonal cycles, as well as the accumulation of fluids in the cells and cellular debris in the breast.

 

Similar to uterine fibroids, breast fibroids are non-cancerous growths. However, unlike uterine fibroids, the fibroids found in the breast do not cause infertility or contribute to pregnancy complications. Unfortunately, though, they can increase a woman’s chances of developing breast cancer.

30. HOW BIG IS A LARGE FIBROID?

Fibroids can be tiny as a pea or they can grow to a very large size and can enlarge a woman’s uterus to that of a pregnant woman. On rare occasions a fibroid can grow to an enormous size weighing as much as 50 lbs.

31. IS SUBSEROSAL FIBROID DANGEROUS?

A subserosal fibroid is an abnormal but benign (non-cancerous) growth that develops on the outer wall of a woman’s uterus. It is one of the several types of leiomyomas; fibroids are also referred to as leiomyomas. Unlike submucosal fibroids that impair fertility, subserosal fibroids usually do not interfere with a woman’s fertility potential. It is only when they grow large enough to become pedunculated fibroids (bearing a stem), that they significantly affect a woman’s capability to get pregnant. Enormous subserosal fibroids can distort the anatomy of the uterus and fallopian tubes, which accordingly also has a severe impact on pregnancy and fertility.
