First of all, let's understand what is uterine fibroids and why it is so frightening.

Please note that this text was prepared without the support of our Expert Council.

Myoma is a benign tumor that develops in a woman’s body as a response to disorders. As such violations are repeated menstruation. A tumor develops against the background of hormonal disturbances and a number of concomitant factors.

On our site you can get acquainted with the specifics of the pathology, methods of its diagnosis and treatment. Expert advice site at any time ready to answer all your questions.

Uterine fibroids have long been treated as a precancerous condition. Such an opinion existed two decades ago. For this reason, the only treatment was surgery to remove myoma nodes, often with the uterus itself. Only women of reproductive age who have no children and are planning a future pregnancy were trying to save the organ.

Drug treatment or any other organ-preserving method of therapy has not been considered. The fact that the tumor may shrink or dissolve itself was not discussed. But medicine does not stand still, studies are conducted daily. It was they who helped look at the problem of fibroids differently.

Modern view of myoma

To date, the following ideas about myoma have developed:

  • The tumor is benign and does not degenerate into cancer. The likelihood of developing oncology from myoma nodes is equal to the risk of developing a cancer and from other healthy uterine cells,
  • Each neoplasm develops from a single individual cell, so they can all have different shapes, diameters and localizations. Some fibroids can decrease, dissolve and disappear altogether as unexpectedly as they appeared,
  • Myoma is an extremely common disease. It used to be read that it occurs in 30% of women. Today, it is known that 85% of the beautiful half of humanity is affected. The fact is that the pathology for a long time can develop asymptomatically and the girls do not even suggest its presence. They reveal it by chance, during a preventive examination by a gynecologist, or when the first signs of pathology appear, when the fibroid is already large,
  • After the onset of the menopause period, the fibroids stop growing, can decrease in diameter and completely dissolve,
  • Myoma can be treated not only with the help of the surgical method, but also with medication and embolization of the uterine arteries. The latter type of therapy is innovative and most effective. It is used in all developed countries of Europe, the USA, etc. In Russia, embolization is performed in specialized medical centers. On our site you can find a catalog of fibroid treatment clinics, where uterine fibroids are treated using modern methods. All these clinics are equipped with modern medical equipment, and their staff includes leading doctors of Russia. All medical services here are provided at a high European level.

The causes of fibroids

The tumor is overwhelmingly diagnosed in women of reproductive age. It develops as a response of the body to damage, which are repeated periods of menstruation. Why is this happening?

Nature laid the main function in the girl - the birth of children and procreation. According to this scenario, after the onset of puberty, pregnancy should occur - childbirth - breastfeeding period - a couple of menstruations - and again pregnancy. The number of menstruation in this case, on average, should have been about forty.

In the modern world, the situation is different, and each girl on average becomes a mother two or three times in her life. The number of menstruation is about 350-400.

As with any frequently repeated algorithm, multiple menstruations can lead to the formation of errors. This is due to the constant restructuring of the body during the cycle. Every month he prepares for pregnancy and carrying a baby. If conception does not occur, then all systems return to their original settings.

You can not be silent about the fluctuations of hormonal levels during the menstrual cycle. It is the fluctuations in the level of sex hormones on the background of injuries and a number of other factors that serve as a trigger for the development of nodes.

Among the risk factors for fibroids are:

  • Abortion and gynecological curettage,
  • Surgical intervention on the uterus,
  • Various injuries of the reproductive organ,
  • Inflammatory processes of the pelvic organs,
  • Endometriosis,
  • Difficult childbirth, etc.

Diagnosis of fibroids

Before the advent of the ultrasound diagnostic method, it was practically impossible to identify small nodes. The pathology was diagnosed already at an advanced stage, when the fibroids were well felt or were visible when viewed in the chair.

To date, myoma can be identified using the following research methods:

  • Gynecological examination - manual examination,
  • Ultrasound,
  • Endoscopic,
  • Radiological.

Endoscopic examination involves:

  • Hysteroscopy
  • Laparoscopy
  • Colposcopy,
  • Culdoscopy
  • Cervicoscopy.

How to deal with myoma

With a small amount of fibroids, some doctors advise patients instead of a course of adequate treatment to adhere to waiting tactics, since there is a possibility that the tumor may shrink and resolve itself.

In practice, there are cases when myoma is able to decrease in size and disappear, but this is rather the exception to the rule than the norm. This situation can be observed in women who entered the period of menopause. At this time, the production of sex hormones stops and uterine fibroids can decrease in size, and sometimes completely dissolve.

Expectant tactics is a time bomb. After all, instead of waiting for a miracle and hoping that the tumor will decrease and resolve, it is necessary to undergo a course of conservative treatment.

It is known that the earlier a disease is diagnosed, the easier it is to cope with it. It is surprising that graduates advise girls to stick with waiting tactics in the hope that myoma will decrease and may disappear and disappear in the future. Such measures can only aggravate the picture and lead to the growth of a neoplasm with the appearance of characteristic symptoms. In any case, it is impossible to be inactive in this case. It is necessary to go through all examinations as soon as possible and begin adequate treatment.

The presence of fibroids in the body does not mean that it is necessary to remove it. Therapy is based on several basic tasks, including:

  1. Activities aimed at stopping progressive tumor growth,
  2. Elimination of heavy and "unauthorized" menstruation, in which a woman loses a lot of blood with the subsequent development of iron deficiency anemia,
  3. The elimination of pressure on the bladder and rectum,
  4. Providing the possibility of hormone replacement therapy,
  5. Providing the possibility of pregnancy, as well as carrying a baby.

As you can see, in the diagnosis of fibroid patient does not always send a surgeon under the knife. There are plenty of options for organ-sparing therapy. Do not be afraid to visit the doctor and sit back, in anticipation that the fibroid will decrease and pass itself. A qualified specialist will make an individual effective course of treatment for each girl, based on the characteristics of her body, the presence of concomitant diseases and the stage of development of fibroids. Of course, there is a small chance that the fibroid may decrease in size and completely dissolve, but you should not rely on the case in this situation.

Before proceeding to the description of the main methods of combating myoma, I would like to say which methods are ineffective in relation to this disease. It:

  • Dietary supplements,
  • Homeopathy,
  • Phytotherapy,
  • Physiotherapy,
  • Acupuncture,
  • Osteopathy,
  • Leeches.

These types of pseudo-treatment have the same effect as expectant tactics. That is, the disease continues to develop. Fibroids, however, only in isolated cases can independently decrease in size and dissolve.

The following types of therapy will help to cope with myoma:

  • Myomectomy - surgical intervention
  • Esmia - a drug that blocks progesterone receptors in tissues,
  • Uterine artery embolization.

According to the recommendations of the European medical community, we suspend the further prescription of the drug Esmia to patients with uterine fibroids until the causes of isolated cases of toxic effects of the drug on the liver are identified. Learn more.

Myoma treatment concept

  1. The effects of therapy should not be harder than the manifestations of the pathology itself,
  2. Treatment should be organ-sparing. The operation to remove the reproductive organ is an extreme measure that is advisable to apply only in isolated cases,
  3. The effect of the activities carried out should be maintained for a long time,
  4. The course of struggle with myoma should involve the preservation of the reproductive function of girls.

The doctor for each patient determines an individual course of therapy based on the above concept. The choice of tactics depends on the stage of development of the disease, that is, the size of the tumor, its localization and the presence of symptoms.

Uterine artery embolization

To date, this technique is the most effective and least traumatic for the female body. Embolization involves blockage of the uterine arteries, through which blood enters the myomatous nodes.

At the same time, the uterus continues to perform its functions, receiving blood through the ovarian arteries and other small blood vessels. Fibroids begin to decrease in size, dry out, very small small nodes can dissolve. The tumor dies like a plant without water.

The procedure itself lasts about 20-50 minutes, does not require the use of general anesthesia and is not traumatic for a woman. After a day, the patient can go home. During the first week after embolization, she may develop symptoms similar to a cold. This is weakness, chills and a slight increase in body temperature. After seven days, the girl can safely go to work, return to her usual way of life.

The effectiveness of embolization is felt already after a couple of menstrual cycles. Myomas are reduced in size and their characteristic symptoms disappear. The menstrual cycle is normalized, the discharge ceases to be plentiful and painful, the sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the lower abdomen disappears.

Uterine artery embolization is an effective technique recognized by doctors all over the world. Expert advice of our site will help to understand all the intricacies of the procedure. On our site you can also use the service consultation by e-mail.

Is uterine fibroids can resolve itself?

Almost every third woman in her life faces such a serious illness as uterine fibroids. This is a hormone-dependent benign tumor that occurs against the background of an unstable level of female sex hormones. The sharp increase in estrogen can provoke various types of growth of the endometrium, including fibroids. They can be placed both in the walls of the uterus, and in the cavity itself, as well as on its outer side. Myomas can be single and multiple, very tiny and very large.

Women suffering from this disease are often interested in whether the uterine fibroids can resolve themselves. Yes, there are registered cases when fibroids disappeared both under the influence of specific treatment, and without it. It happened that fibroids that existed before pregnancy resolved during gestation and did not return after giving birth. This is not a miracle at all, for such a phenomenon there is a strictly scientific explanation.

What is fibroids?

The neoplasm of benign origin arising on the background of estrogen activity is called uterine myoma. It can affect women at any age, but most often occurs in the active reproductive period. This is due to the constant changes in the level of hormones associated with puberty, and then with the onset of sexual activity, pregnancy, childbirth, abortion. All these processes are accompanied by emissions of female sex hormones - estrogen, which are considered the main cause of provoking the formation of fibroids. Naturally, it can be assumed that if the level of estrogen normalizes or decreases, then the tumor may disappear just as it appeared. Theoretically, the way it happens - there are cases when fibroids suddenly disappear, and then after a certain period of time arise again. This may indicate that the tumor was formed at the peak of the level of estrogen, and in the fall regressed and disappeared or decreased very much. But the danger of this disease is that it does not obey any rules. The exact causes of fibroids have not yet been established. Therefore, the question of whether the uterine fibroids dissolve itself remains open.

When can myoma disappear?

Since fibroids are hormone-dependent tumors, in the event of a change in the level of hormonal background, it can significantly decrease or disappear completely. This requires a radical reduction in estrogen levels. This can occur naturally during menopause. At this time, the production of estrogen begins to decline gradually and by the time of menopause is at a minimum.

Whether the uterus myoma can dissolve itself during menopause depends largely on the weight of the woman. Fat is a natural storage of estrogens, and even after the cessation of menstruation, a certain amount of these hormones are stored in a woman’s body. The deposition of fat on the abdomen, so unloved by all women, is in fact a natural estrogen “depot”. They help women for a long time after menopause to maintain the beauty and youthfulness of the skin. At the same time, this supply of hormones can support the existence of fibroids. Therefore, the independent disappearance of the tumor is more likely in thin women with minimal residual estrogen levels.

Cases of disappearance of fibroids during pregnancy are also frequent. It should be noted that mostly they were single nodes of small size, mostly up to 20 millimeters in diameter. This is also due to changes in hormonal levels in the body of a pregnant woman.

Even if a woman suffering from fibroids is pregnant or is entering menopause, this does not mean that her fibroids will definitely disappear. Regardless of whether the tumor is small or large, it requires constant monitoring and control by specialists to avoid its rapid progression and the occurrence of complications.

Myoma and pregnancy

but the size was 57mm

have you had fibroids during pregnancy? but before my pregnancy she was 20 mm, now also 57mm. I will go to the commission on Friday 🙁
and another question on intravaginal ultrasound in the second trimester - who else did it? can hurt the baby? The pancake was done intravaginally to me on the second screening - so my poor kid was so floundering. I am afraid on the commission that they will get there again 🙁

Do not raise children, they will still look like you. Educate yourself.

did myoma grow during pregnancy?

not-but, how many watched, what was found in 11 weeks, so before birth and left. B planned, either on ultrasound did not see, or B and provoked its growth. They said - well, that is already B, and then later who knows how it is. Mom finally was shocked, she found after 40 - so upset, I have 24%)

I had it unsuccessfully located - along the edge, when walking, and even when the pain began to sit, so the size is not the main thing, there are still internal types of another kind of mixed

Before this pregnancy, year 3, myoma was found to be 16 mm in size, as soon as I became pregnant, it became 30 mm, now 53 is 25 weeks, and since 15 weeks it is generally: = - O: with a cavity, there is an septic necrosis in which Sagdeeva probably told me 50 times. that you know the meaning of the word NEKROZ..a pancake finally just fell off the couch, and my husband already has sweat on his forehead, I tell her. Duck I know of course, but my gynecologist doesn’t react to it ... she said to monitor the size and all%). she let me track the size. In short, after screening, I came to my forgive my God, the doctor, she says aseptic necrosis. mmm yeah and Che says it doesn't hurt you or anything, and I constantly complain to her that it hurts in my lower abdomen .. but not sharp pains, but it is unpleasant .. and she keeps me all the therapy. угроза и все тут..Расположена она у меня с наружной стороны матки над мочевым пузырем.

которой делали операцию 2 в 1 — КС и удаление миомы одновременно.

А в каком роддоме вы рожали? ну опять раз вы написали у женщины она 1 кг была. my duck in their 53 mm nor ochem probably ..

Often pregnancy is a positive factor for myoma: it resolves

But I have the opposite. although Yastrebova talked about the possibility of such a .. but alas, not my case
So, I want to know where it is possible to combine the CU under a contract and remove myoma .. once a doctor in our hospital doesn’t react, but I’m worried

Forum RODITELI.UA

Today was at the scheduled ultrasound 20 weeks in Nadia
During the examination, myoma was found on the uterus with a diameter of 1.5 cm.
Previously, it did not seem to be given ..
The doctor said that she would be engaged only after childbirth, but I still worry ..
Who faced? How is it treated? Does it threaten the baby?
Will the subsequent possibility of getting pregnant affect? Google articles - a lot of outcomes are supposed. and how to practice?

In practice, everything is individual, as well as in theory. Myomas are often reduced or resolved during pregnancy. The doctor may offer to give birth through cesarean section, depending on the state and size of the node before delivery. At the same time, my friend successfully gave birth to a third child of myoma in 40 years (and even at home)

I and so will be Cesarean: (
just in the past, ultrasound in 12-13 weeks did not find anything like that :( (or did they look bad?)

She could be small and could not notice. I also didn’t find anything on the ultrasound (about six months before B), but at the first ultrasound in 3 weeks they found fibroids 10mm And at 8 weeks there were already 2 - 2.5 cm and 1.2 cm. on the 3rd ultrasound at 12 weeks they decreased slightly) And I also didn’t feel anything about fibroids and I don’t feel TTT. My doctor is not scared, says that the small nodules, and can and will be able to give birth. True, they are almost completely on the neck, that's what's bad. But from the baby far enough.

I’m still worried about further consequences .. can I get pregnant in the future? :( how much can I treat at all?

Uterine fibroids is a dangerous disease that necessarily requires special treatment. Of course, some women hope that the tumor will resolve itself, but this does not happen often. You need to know in which cases the fibroids can disappear on their own, and when special treatment is required.

Can uterine fibroids disappear by itself?

As a preventive measure, it is necessary to monitor your immunity, metabolism, and the endocrine system.

Uterine fibroids is one of the most common gynecological diseases, the progression of which can lead to undesirable consequences. Myoma is a benign neoplasm and most often the main reason for its appearance is the change in the hormonal background of the female body. The sharp increase in estrogen levels leads to various types of growth in the uterus, among which is myoma. The location of the tumor can be the wall of the uterus, its cavity and the outer side.

Often, women with such pathology try to find out from a specialist the answer to the question of whether the resulting tumor can resolve. Indeed, medical practice shows that there are situations where fibroids can disappear under the influence of special treatment, as well as without it.

Sometimes a benign neoplasm identified before pregnancy can resolve itself during the childbearing and after birth the woman no longer has any tumors.

Many patients consider this phenomenon a real miracle, however, everything has its own explanation.

When fibroids can disappear on their own

A benign neoplasm that occurs in the uterus is a hormone-dependent tumor. It is for this reason that when the hormonal background of the female body changes, there can be a significant decrease in its size, and sometimes complete disappearance.

In order for this to happen, you need to reduce the level of estrogen in the female body to a minimum. Most often, this phenomenon is observed at the beginning of menopause in a woman, since it is during this period that a sharp decrease in estrogen level occurs in the female body.

The disappearance of menopause

By the time of menopause, the hormone content in the body is minimal, so it is during this period that the tumor may disappear.

However, the entry of a woman into menopause is not yet a complete guarantee that the fibroids in the uterus will disappear without special treatment. To achieve a positive result, an important condition is the weight of the woman. In fact, fat is exactly the place where estrogen accumulates and after the cessation of menstruation a sufficient amount of this hormone is observed in the female body. That estrogen allows for quite a long time to maintain the beauty and youthful female skin.

Excess weight and a large amount of body fat cause hormones to support not only the female body, but also the existing myoma. It is for this reason that independent resorption of uterine fibroids in thinner women is considered more likely, since the level of estrogen in their bodies is minimal.

Gestation period

During the carrying of the child in the female body is an active process of production of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone. The level of these hormones and their presence in the female body have a significant impact on the state of fibroids. Pregnancy causes a number of changes in the female body:

  • hormonal changes,
  • stretching of the muscular layer of the uterus occurs,
  • increase in the size of the uterus,
  • blood flow through the blood vessels increases.

Experts say that the growth of fibroids is observed during pregnancy, however, this is considered to be a completely natural phenomenon. During pregnancy, there is an increase in the size of the uterus and for this reason, the tumor may increase.

Most often, the growth of fibroids can occur in the first half of pregnancy, after which it begins to decrease.

For the period of pregnancy is characterized by such a process as the degeneration of uterine fibroids and the tumor may disappear completely after the birth of the baby. Most often this is observed as a result of such pathological phenomena as:

  • necrosis of mime tissue,
  • bleeding,
  • the occurrence of cysts.

Until today, experts have failed to find out the reasons that lead to self-resorption of fibroids in the uterus. Most doctors agree that this occurs under the influence of hormonal changes in the female body or is the result of circulatory disorders at the site of the tumor.

It turns out that the process of resorption of fibroids may be accompanied by certain symptoms:

  • the appearance of pain in the place where the fibroid is localized,
  • high body temperature,
  • increased uterus tone,
  • periodic growth of leukocytes in the female body.

Most often, these symptoms persist for several weeks, and you can confirm the disappearance of fibroids in the uterus by using ultrasound.

Conservative therapy

Uterine fibroids require constant monitoring of their condition and size, so experts recommend that women periodically undergo an ultrasound scan with a vaginal sensor.

In the event that the tumor does not grow and does not exert pressure on nearby organs, then most often such a procedure is sufficient and no additional treatment is prescribed.

When the patient complains about the appearance of pain in the pelvic area, the doctor prescribes nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Acceptance of hormonal drugs is not able to slow down the intensive growth of fibroids, so their appointment is considered useless.

Surgical intervention

In the event that the fibroid has not resolved during the carrying of the child or with the onset of menopause, then, if there are certain indications, the woman is scheduled for surgery.

When making this decision, experts pay attention to the general condition of the patient, the size of a benign neoplasm, the manifestation of symptoms.

The main indications for surgical intervention are:

  • severe pain in the lower abdomen,
  • intensive tumor growth,
  • violation of the movement of blood in the myoma nodes
  • development of inflammatory processes in myoma,
  • infertility,
  • large tumor sizes cause squeezing of adjacent organs.

After the age of 40 years and in the postmenopausal period, surgery to remove uterine fibroids is simply necessary, because in the absence of its regression during the first 2 years the risk of developing oncology increases.

Diagnosing uterine fibroids causes concern to many women and many of them hope that it will resolve itself. Of course, it is worth hoping that the tumor will disappear on its own, however, if this does not happen, then it is necessary to undergo treatment by a specialist.

How does menopause occur in uterine myoma?

Myoma: will it go away or do you need treatment?

About 30% of women during the life of the face of benign tumors of the internal genital organs. The fear of possible surgery and a long course of therapy makes most patients wonder if the fibroids can resolve themselves? Medical statistics keeps records of such cases. However, not all so simple. In order to make an informed decision whether to treat a neoplasm or not, women must be well aware of the mechanism of the occurrence of such a pathology.

Uterine fibroids: causes in the body

A benign tumor that affects the patient's uterus is caused by certain hormonal fluctuations in the blood. It has long been proven that with a surge in female sex hormones, estrogen, there is an increased growth of the endometrium. This tissue layer in large quantities is located in the uterus.

Experts call the growth of the endometrium the uterine myoma. This pathological process can be localized in the walls of the reproductive organ, occupy a certain space in the cavity. There are cases when the tumor was located on the outer wall of the uterus.

When answering the question, can fibroids resolve, it is necessary to take into account the size of the tumor, the patient's age, hormones and a lot of other related factors. The formations themselves can be very different: cases of single and multiple lipomas are recorded, their size ranges from a few millimeters to 50–60 cm in diameter.

For data standardization, gynecologists determine the size of a benign tumor in comparison with the pregnant uterus. The more weeks after conception, experts fix, the less likely it is that uterine fibroids will resolve themselves.

As already mentioned, the main cause of neoplasm is a surge of estrogen in a woman’s blood. This can occur during the development and ovulation of the egg in women, during pregnancy, childbirth. Even the process of puberty girls can lead to an uncontrolled growth of this hormone. By the way, abortion is a start to a large release of estrogen, so frequent abortion operations can provoke a tumor process in the uterus.

There is a medical theory that if the growth of a neoplasm depends on a high level of hormones, then when estrogen declines, the fibroids should decrease in size and practically disappear. This beautiful assumption has not yet found practical confirmation. Myoma does not want to obey the rules and laws of biology. Therefore, the question whether the uterine fibroids can pass by itself remains open.

What do experts say about the facts of spontaneous resorption

The only period in the life of a woman confirming the postulate that while reducing the level of estrogen uterine tumors can regress, is the period of menopause. At the onset of this age period in a patient, the amount of sex hormones in the blood gradually decreases and after 2 to 3 years reaches minimum values.

This fact has a positive effect on muscle tumors in a woman’s body. The fibroids of the body and uterine cavity begin to decrease in size, and often completely dissolve. Much depends on the size of the tumor. Fibroids with a diameter of up to 20–30 mm more often pass themselves than larger tumors.

The location of the reborn endometrium also plays a significant role. If the node is located in the uterus and is sufficiently mobile, the chances of spontaneous disappearance are significant. But whether the uterine fibroids can disappear if it has sprouted into the depth of the muscular wall remains a very controversial issue.

Significant impact on the possibility of treatment without getting rid of tumors during menopause has an overweight woman. According to the laws of physiology, it is in the fatty tissue that the main accumulation of female sex hormones is located. During menopause, estrogens are removed from the bloodstream and deposited in the fat deposits of the female body.

Of course, the more estrogen in a woman's body, the more she will keep the symptoms of youth and freshness. However, at the same time, a high percentage of these substances do not allow benign tumors to dissolve.

In nature, everything is interconnected, and the patients with a minimal fat layer have the greatest chance to get rid of a uterine tumor without treatment. In this case, the aging process in such women is more pronounced.

The situations when the pregnancy process led to the disappearance of uterine fibroids are described. In this case, everything also depends on changes in the level of estrogen and progesterone in the body of the future mother. As with menopause, small tumors with high mobility are most often amenable to self-destruction.

However, it is not recommended for expectant mothers to hope for such smiles of nature. Most often, the presence of uterine fibroids will create additional difficulties in carrying the child and subsequent delivery.

If a woman has a neoplasm of internal genital organs during a routine examination, then it is not necessary to think about whether the uterine myoma can disappear itself or not. Any benign tumors, especially in women, require appropriate treatment. The reason is that the female hormonal background contributes to the transition of a benign process to oncology 3–4 times stronger than that of men. Therefore, experiments with your health can lead to disastrous consequences.

Medical therapy of neoplasm in the uterus

Even 20 years ago, when diagnosing a similar pathology, most experts insisted on an urgent operation. Amputation of the uterus with or without appendages was considered the main measure to prevent the benign process from becoming cancer.

Currently, approaches to the treatment of this pathology have changed radically. Only 10% of women suffering from this disease, indicated surgical treatment.

If the patient has uterine fibroids have not reached large sizes. Gynecologists have successfully used to treat a combination of various hormonal protobuoses. Most often, patients are recommended to take oral medication “Novinet” and “Ovidon”. These remedies well suppress the main symptoms of uterine cavity tumors, such as bleeding and pain in the pelvic area during ovulation and in the last days of the menstrual cycle.

A positive result is proven when using gonadotropic hormone antagonists. “Diferelin” and “Zoladex” allow to reduce the size of fibroids almost twice. However, the effect of these substances is well pronounced only during the treatment. These drugs are often prescribed before surgery to remove the uterus.

The recommendation to use such a drug as “Duphaston” for treating uterine fibroids seems quite controversial. Substances leading to the growth of progesterone in the patient's blood, thereby reducing the effect of estrogen on her body, which leads to a reduction in the size of a benign tumor.

In addition to medications for the treatment of fibroids, FEA ablation is currently used. that is, the melting of the affected tissues of the uterus with an ultrasound beam. This procedure is absolutely painless and is carried out in a clinic or medical centers.

This technique allows you to remove even large myoma nodes, while the tissue structure of the uterus is fully preserved, which guarantees the woman further successful motherhood. To minimize the impact on the tissues of the affected uterus, this method of treatment is usually combined with MRI. The only negative criterion for FUS ablation is still the rather high cost of the procedure.

Surgical treatment of benign tumors of the uterus

All modern gynecology divides the surgical method of treatment of uterine fibroids into two ways. In most cases, specialists have to resort to hysterectomy or removal of the uterus with or without appendages. A variant is possible when a cervix is ​​excised along with the uterus.

The volume of surgical intervention usually depends on the severity of the patient's condition, the size of the tumor, concomitant gynecological and somatic diseases. An important factor may be the results of cytological studies, which are often carried out directly during the operation.

Recently, the method of myomectomy or the removal of certain provoked nodes has become widespread. This method of treatment is, of course, more gentle, requiring a smaller volume of surgery and, accordingly, a more labile postoperative period.

Some of the disadvantages of such surgery include the possibility of acute bleeding during surgery, the formation of a massive adhesive process in 60 - 70% of cases after working in the abdominal cavity and re-growth of uterine fibroids. In each case, the surgeon discusses the intended amount of surgical treatment with the patient.

Removal of embosylate

In many clinics, the method of introduction into the uterine vessels of a special substance - embolism - is quite widely implemented. Nutrition of uterus nodes is stopped, necrosis or reverse development of uterine nodes occurs. Quite often, a mobile tumor independently stands out from the uterine cavity with menstruation.

Modern medicine has a wide range of therapeutic and surgical ways to help a woman with the development of a benign tumor of the uterus. It all depends on the severity of the process and the condition of the patient.

If, after the diagnosis has been established, the question is whether the fibroids can disappear, then the patient should first of all get expert advice from a specialist. The percentage of self-resorption of benign tumors of the uterus is so low that the fear of treatment can prolong the disease and require much more effort from the doctors and the patient than immediately after diagnosing a benign neoplasm.

The most dangerous property of uterine fibroids is the possibility of malignancy process. In this case, passive waiting can lead to disastrous consequences.

How is the development of fibroids: the most important aspects

To answer the question asked above, one must first understand what fibroids are and how this pathology behaves throughout the life of a woman.

A benign tumor occurs in the muscle layer of the uterus, from where it can grow in any direction. The formation reaching the submucosal layer (submucous fibroids) deforms the uterine cavity, disrupts the menstrual cycle, prevents fetal bearing. A tumor that grows in the direction of the serous membrane (subserous fibroids) for a long time does not declare its existence and only when it reaches a large size begins to put pressure on the pelvic organs, disrupting their function. In some cases, the tumor remains within the muscle layer (interstitial fibroids).

Submucous fibroids are characterized by growth in the uterus, subserous - localized in the abdominal region and the outer layer of the myometrium, and interstitial is formed from the muscle layer of the uterus.

Myoma refers to the hyperplastic pathology of the uterus and is often detected along with endometriosis or polyps. On the features of the treatment of tumors on the background of endometriosis can be found in a separate article. Against the background of gynecological diseases, mastopathy is also often found - a benign proliferation of breast tissue.

In adolescence, fibroids are extremely rare. In girls 15-20 years of age, the uterus tumor may be an accidental finding with ultrasound. As a rule, these are small formations that do not cause significant discomfort. The peak incidence occurs at the age of 35-45 years - at this time most myomatous nodes are diagnosed.

Uterine fibroids in girls is extremely rare, so there is no reliable data on the development of a tumor during puberty.

The exact cause of the appearance of a neoplasm is still not known, but several key risk factors have been identified:

  • Early first menstruation (menarche) - up to 12 years,
  • Late onset of menopause - after 50 years,
  • The lack of childbirth in history
  • Late first birth - after the age of 30,
  • Frequent miscarriages (including regressive pregnancies),
  • Artificial abortions,
  • Endocrine pathology (primarily obesity).

The onset of a girl of the first menstruation up to 12 years old is observed in violation of the hormonal background of the body, which means that in the future the reproductive health of a young woman may be at risk.

All these conditions lead to an imbalance in the level of sex hormones and the development of relative hyperestrogenism. Lack of progesterone leads to an excess of estrogen, which activates cell proliferation and provokes tumor growth. In order for uterine fibroids to resolve naturally, you need to stabilize the level of hormones in the female body. To this end, gynecologists prescribe various hormonal preparations, biologically active herbal supplements and other means. In one of our articles, the issue of treating a tumor with hormonal preparations and phytoestrogens is considered in more detail. But is it possible to do without drugs and ensure that the uterus tumor goes away by itself without special treatment?

What to do with the tumor after childbirth

During pregnancy, the treatment of fibroids is not carried out. A woman is observed and recommended to come for an examination after childbirth. The control ultrasound shows that in some women the tumor resolves, but in most cases the myoma node is found in the same place. Further tactics will depend on the results of the survey:

  • If the tumor has completely disappeared, the woman is recommended to come for a checkup every 6-12 months,
  • If the tumor has decreased in size or at least has ceased to grow, it does not hurt, does not bother and does not disturb the menstrual cycle, the patient is advised to monitor her feelings and be regularly examined by a doctor (ultrasound, examination on a gynecological chair),
  • If the fibroid has stabilized, but continues to disturb (pain, irregular menstruation, uterine bleeding), treatment is carried out taking into account the location, number and size of the nodes,
  • If the doctor sees signs of necrosis of the tumor or suspects its malignant degeneration, an additional examination and urgent surgical treatment is indicated.

In women with myoma, an ultrasound scan is performed every 6 months regardless of the presence of complaints.

Ultrasound examination gives the attending physician an idea of ​​the state of fibroids. And in order for the situation to be constantly under control, a woman with pathology should be examined at least once every six months.

Myoma during menopause: to treat or not to touch?

The onset of menopause is another period when a benign tumor of the uterus can significantly decrease in size or even go without a trace. Important aspects of tumor treatment during menopause are discussed in our separate article. In most women, menopause occurs at the age of about 45 years. A few years before the last period of menstruation, there is a gradual decrease in the level of sex hormones, including estrogen. In menopause, hormone production is completely stopped, and the reproductive function is completed.

Tactics of conducting the woman who entered the climacteric period will depend on the course of the disease:

  • If the myoma stabilizes or decreases in size, it does not bother and does not interfere with normal life, the woman is under observation: a follow-up examination of the gynecologist and an ultrasound scan every 6 months,
  • If the tumor does not grow, but causes pain or leads to the development of uterine bleeding, the tumor is removed,
  • If the tumor grows, urgent surgical treatment is indicated.

The growth of fibroids in menopause most likely indicates its malignant degeneration, and leave the uterus in this case is inappropriate.

Drug treatment of a tumor is usually carried out during the preclimacteric period. Hormone preparations are prescribed, against which the fibroids gradually decrease in size. In menopause, that is, at the time when the menstruation has long ceased, there is not much point in conservative therapy. In this case, the best option for a woman would be a hysterectomy.

If during menopause myoma continues to grow, experts will recommend a radical curative measure - hysterectomy. Depending on the evidence, only the body of the uterus, the uterus and cervix, the entire organ and the appendages, or the organ can be removed, leaving only 2/3 of the vagina.

Signs of a Regressing Tumor

How to understand that myoma is resolving, and is it possible to feel its disappearance? Usually a woman does not notice any changes, and only in rare cases do such symptoms appear:

  • Pulling pain in lower abdomen
  • Minor bleeding from the genital tract,
  • Increased body temperature.

These symptoms indicate ischemia of the myoma node and are not always a favorable sign. Insufficient blood supply may not lead to the resorption of fibroids, but to its necrosis, and then emergency surgical intervention will be required.

A few words about uterine submucous myoma

A tumor that grows to the submucosa is called submucous fibroids. This formation deforms the uterus, prevents childbirth and childbirth. Often the node is connected with the myometrium only by a thin leg, so over time the tumor can fall through the cervical canal. In gynecology, such a condition is defined as a nascent submucous node and is considered an indication for emergency hospitalization. Useful information on methods for removing submucous node can be found in a separate article.

Submucous fibroids - this is exactly the tumor that can fall off and go out by itself without medical intervention. This does not mean that the help of a gynecologist is not required. A nasal myoma node leads to very unpleasant symptoms and creates a certain threat to the health and even the life of a woman.

Signs of the birth of fibroids:

  • Severe cramping pain in the lower abdomen, extending to the back and crotch,
  • Spotting from the vagina.

With heavy bleeding, blood pressure decreases, tachycardia, weakness, and loss of consciousness are possible. At the slightest suspicion of loss of fibroids need to consult a doctor.

An emerging submucous site is clearly visible during a gynecological examination. The cervix is ​​smoothed, the cervical canal opens, fibroids appear in the vagina. To clarify the diagnosis is carried out ultrasound and hysteroscopy. Removal of the node on the leg is performed under general anesthesia. After extraction of the tumor, curettage of the uterus cavity is shown with obligatory histological control.

Some submucous fibroids are associated with thin leg myometrium and may eventually descend through the cervical canal into the vagina, causing bleeding and severe pain.

Can a tumor come out by itself without medical intervention? Theoretically, this is possible, but it is not worth bringing it to this. The bleeding that accompanies the birth of a node can be quite severe, and the patient’s life will be endangered. In rare cases, the birth of a neoplasm leads to the inversion of the uterus, which threatens with its necrosis, infection and sepsis.

After the birth of the site, it is recommended to visit a gynecologist and carry out an ultrasound every 3 months. You can plan a pregnancy in six months in the absence of complications.

How to make the tumor disappear

There are no clear recommendations to get rid of fibroids guaranteed. One can only try to stabilize the hormonal background and thereby increase the chances of a favorable outcome of the disease.

To maintain hormonal balance you need:

  1. Lose weight. Adipose tissue - estrogen depot, against which myoma grows,
  2. Eat right. A balanced diet is another step towards a normal metabolism and a stable level of female hormones,
  3. Move more to prevent weight gain
  4. Promptly treat gynecological diseases, as well as monitor the condition of the mammary glands.

Even if these simple preventive measures do not make the myoma disappear, at least they will help keep the body in good physical shape and immunity at the proper level.

What else needs to be done to myoma resolved? Gynecologists do not advise to delay treatment, as well as resort to popular recipes. From a position of evidence-based medicine, it is possible to get rid of a tumor by one of the following methods:

  • Medical conservative therapy (gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists, antiprogestogens, COCs and other hormonal agents),
  • Surgical treatment - from uterine artery embolization to conservative myomectomy or radical hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).

The prognosis directly depends on the severity of the disease. Single myomas and small-sized tumors respond well to hormone therapy, and are removed surgically without any problems. It is important not to delay a visit to the doctor. The earlier the diagnosis is made, the higher the chances of a favorable outcome of the disease.

Myoma is afraid of surgeons

In particular, those involved in myomectomy (removal of myomas) and hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). The uterus itself is also afraid of such operations, and the whole body is not happy with them. Sometimes surgery for fibroids becomes the optimal solution, but in most cases it is shooting the cannon at the flies. Is it worth it to prepare heavy artillery where you can do a fly swatter? And there are no insects, and the walls in the house are intact (however, everything is in order, let's talk about the "fly swatter" against myomas below).

The main disadvantages of the operation:

  • Actually, this is an operation. With anesthesia. And with all the attendant risks.
  • In 7-14 cases out of a hundred a year after the operation, the myoma grows back.
  • The risk of relapse can be reduced, but it will have to take hormones. What the body is also not always happy.
  • One of the complications after surgery is spikes in the pelvis. Because of them, there may be problems with the conception of a child.
  • If the doctor offers to remove myoma together with the uterus, then it is worth considering the consequences. They may be more serious than the problems that the fibroid itself caused. Even if the woman no longer plans to have children.

Conclusion: Myoma is afraid of surgery, but only gynecologists are probably not afraid of it. The disadvantages of this method of treatment is enough. Usually, surgery is resorted to when there are large nodes, and the woman plans a pregnancy in the very near future.

Myoma is a little afraid of drugs

To be more precise, she feels a slight fear just before one drug - the blocker of the progestin receptors Ulypristal (aka Esmia). With the right course of treatment, about 60% of myoma nodes are reduced. However, the effect varies with different women. Scientists can not say for sure how long the medicine will help reduce myoma.
Other hormones and spirals "Mirena" myome uneasy. No matter how much one would like to believe the opposite to some gynecologists of the “old school”.

Myoma is afraid to remain without oxygen

Doctors and scientists have known about this for a long time (since the 70s of the last century), but some still refuse to believe. There is such a procedure - embolization of the uterine arteries, when special microspheres are introduced into the vessel feeding the myoma through a catheter. They block the lumen of the artery, the fibroid is left without oxygen and nutrients, "dries out" and essentially turns into connective tissue. There was a big grape, turned into a small zest. And even completely separated from the wall of the uterus and "left" through the vagina.

Currently, American doctors consider uterine artery embolization (abbreviated EMA) to be the gold standard for treatment of fibroids, because it has several advantages:

  • Relapse, unlike surgical treatment, is practically non-existent.
  • If fibroids cause symptoms, after EMA they completely disappear in 99% of women.
  • The procedure lasts 15-30 minutes. There is no cut. The doctor only needs to pierce the skin in order to insert a catheter into the vessel. Anesthesia is also not needed.

Conclusion: Embolization of the uterine arteries is the same procedure that modern experts recommend for most women with myoma. You may have heard a different point of view, but this is only a point of view. The effectiveness and safety of EMA proven scientifically.

Why myoma is indifferent?

Classically, it is considered that myoma should be “worn” in your body as carefully as a time bomb, and you must observe a lot of restrictions. Modern scientists have good news for women: the growth rate of fibroids is almost independent of lifestyle. With myoma you can:

  • have sex
  • do sports (if fibroids do not lead to heavy menstruation and are not so huge that they squeeze the neighboring organs),
  • take oral contraceptives - but only as a means of contraception, they do not cure fibroids,
  • take a bath and go to the sauna,
  • massage,
  • есть всё, что вам нравится (при обильных месячных нужно позаботиться, чтобы в рационе присутствовало достаточное количество железа).

И строго говоря, миому нельзя назвать опухолью, даже доброкачественной. Рак в ней развивается не чаще, чем в здоровом миометрии (мышечном слое стенки матки). Поэтому бояться её не стоит. But to be observed by a gynecologist is definitely necessary.

Remove myoma or wait until it passes by itself?

Fibromas can be as small as the specification of sand, or grow to the size of an orange or grapefruit, which they usually do when they are not treated or released to the end without any hormonal correction. The largest fibrous indicator weighed over 100 pounds.

In cases where the size of the fibroids compromises other bodily functions, such as constriction on the bladder or excessive bleeding, surgery may be required. Unfortunately, many unnecessary hysterectomies are performed before a woman reaches this stage. Before natural alternatives are considered.

When answering the question, can fibroids resolve, it is necessary to take into account the size of the tumor, the patient's age, hormones and a lot of other related factors. The formations themselves can be very different: cases of single and multiple lipomas are recorded, their size ranges from a few millimeters to 50–60 cm in diameter.

Fibrous tissue in the myometrium is sensitive to estrogen. The higher the estrogen, the faster fibrosis grows. While fibrosis itself does not usually lead to cancer or does not become cancerous, it clearly signals a serious imbalance in the reproductive and hormonal system of a woman. In particular, estrogen dominance and progesterone deficiency exist. Such imbalances affect not only the uterus, but also affect other hormone-sensitive tissues, such as the chest, cervix, ovaries and vagina.

If you do not take care of the consequences, it can be devastating. Fibrosis is clearly only part of the disease continuum, strongly associated with estrogen dominance. Estrogen and progesterone work synchronously with each other as checks and balances to achieve hormonal harmony. This is not an absolute deficiency of estrogen or progesterone, but the relative dominance of estrogen and the relative deficiency of progesterone, which is the main cause of health problems when they are not balanced.

For data standardization, gynecologists determine the size of a benign tumor in comparison with the pregnant uterus. The more weeks after conception, experts fix, the less likely it is that uterine fibroids will resolve themselves.

As already mentioned, the main cause of neoplasm is a surge of estrogen in a woman’s blood. This can occur during the development and ovulation of the egg in women, during pregnancy, childbirth. Even the process of puberty girls can lead to an uncontrolled growth of this hormone. By the way, abortion is a start to a large release of estrogen, so frequent abortion operations can provoke a tumor process in the uterus.

The theory, which received support, was found in the study of the association of xenogonmones and the occurrence of fibrosis. Xenohormones are also called xenoestrogens because of the similarity in the chemical composition as estrogen. The difference is that these chemical compounds are much more efficient than those that our body produces. These compounds have invaded all aspects of our lives. Chlorinated water that we drink and take into the bath, herbicides and pesticides that we consume from products grown in chemical production, the lining of canned products and many of the soap and shampoo that we use daily.

There is a medical theory that if the growth of a neoplasm depends on a high level of hormones, then when estrogen declines, the fibroids should decrease in size and practically disappear. This beautiful assumption has not yet found practical confirmation. Myoma does not want to obey the rules and laws of biology. Therefore, the question whether the uterine fibroids can pass by itself remains open.

Natural and holistic alternatives for uterine fibrids. Bioidentical progesterone cream minimizes the size and frequency of uterine fibroids, balancing excess estrogen levels. Progesterone's bio-identical use is the single most successful treatment for uterine fibroids. Fibroids will shrink and dissolve using progesterone. Synthetic progesterones, called progestins, are known to improve fibroids due to their inability to balance the body.

This synergistic herbal formula contains dandelion and vitex, which helps the body remove exogenous hormone therapy or contaminated food. In addition to treating liver diseases, daily care of the liver lays the foundation for complete body health. Naturopaths and others who look under the symptoms of the disease at its root cause often find that the liver plays a certain role. This is true in a wide range of different diseases, including uterine fibroids tumors. When your liver is overwhelmed or compromised with pharmaceuticals or xenochormones, your liver is unable to break the breakdown of estrogen, leaving women with excess.

Myoma what is it

It is important to stop eating heavily processed foods. White flour, white rice, sugar and all simple carbohydrates cause a surge in insulin in the blood. Insulin changes the way the body processes estrogen. This, in turn, contributes to the formation of fibroids, as well as the growth of existing fibroids. Other dietary changes that need to be made are as follows.

Significant impact on the possibility of treatment without getting rid of tumors during menopause has an overweight woman. According to the laws of physiology, it is in the fatty tissue that the main accumulation of female sex hormones is located. During menopause, estrogens are removed from the bloodstream and deposited in the fat deposits of the female body.

Eat lots of dark leafy greens, lentils, beans and organically raised poultry. Algae help maintain the thyroid and adrenal glands, which is part of controlling hormone levels. Drink filtered water. While some doctors recommend using soy during menopause, soy contains toxins as well as phytoestrogens. These substances increase estrogen in the body and stimulate the growth of fibroids.

  • They impose a tax on the liver, and the liver - where estrogen is processed.
  • Stay away from all forms of caffeine, including tea and chocolate.
  • Stay away from alcohol.
If you are overweight, try losing those extra pounds.

Of course, the more estrogen in a woman's body, the more she will keep the symptoms of youth and freshness. However, at the same time, a high percentage of these substances do not allow benign tumors to dissolve.

In nature, everything is interconnected, and the patients with a minimal fat layer have the greatest chance to get rid of a uterine tumor without treatment. In this case, the aging process in such women is more pronounced.

Estrogen is metabolized in fat cells, so overweight women have more estrogen than lean women. Also, cut out any animal product from your diet that added hormones. This includes any traditionally produced beef or dairy product.

Diagnosis and symptoms

Talk to your naturopath or health care provider about natural ways to eliminate fibroids and see if this could be something that might work for you. Fibromas are benign muscle and fibrous tissue tumors that grow in a woman’s uterus. They are mainly caused by copper toxicity and hormonal imbalances due to insufficiency of the adrenal glands and the thyroid gland.

A positive result is proven when using gonadotropic hormone antagonists. “” And “Zoladex” can reduce the size of fibroids almost twice. However, the effect of these substances is well pronounced only during the treatment. These drugs are often prescribed before surgery to remove the uterus.

The recommendation to use such a drug as “Duphaston” for treating uterine fibroids seems quite controversial. Substances leading to the growth of progesterone in the patient's blood, thereby reducing the effect of estrogen on her body, which leads to a reduction in the size of a benign tumor.

Fibromas can be pea-sized or watermelon-sized. They do not always cause problems, and many women do not even know that they have these shoots. The symptoms they cause may depend on the number, size and location of the fibroids. In general, symptoms may include.

Pelvic pain, discomfort or pressure Severe menstrual bleeding Bleeding between periods Excessive length of menstruation Increased frequency of urination Constipation, gas, or bloating fever. Researchers show that fibroid tumors affect hormone levels. Other hormones also play a role in the growth of uterine fibroids, including prolactin, parathyroid hormone, insulin growth factor and pituitary growth hormone.

In addition to drugs for the treatment of fibroids currently used, that is, the melting of the affected tissues of the uterus by ultrasound beam. This procedure is absolutely painless and is carried out in a clinic or medical centers.

This technique allows you to remove even large myoma nodes, while the tissue structure of the uterus is fully preserved, which guarantees the woman further successful motherhood. To minimize the impact on the tissues of the affected uterus, this method of treatment is usually combined with MRI. The only negative criterion for FUS ablation is still the rather high cost of the procedure.

How to recognize myoma?

In most cases, the tumor develops without severe symptoms. A woman may not suspect that she has fibroids until the pathology is revealed when she visits the gynecologist. There are certain signs that may indicate that certain disorders are still present in the reproductive system.

The main ones include:

  • constant pain in the lower abdomen, which can give in the lower back,
  • prolonged and abundant menstruation,
  • bleeding between menstruation,
  • urination problems,
  • violation of the menstrual cycle,
  • bleeding
  • feeling weak
  • dizziness,
  • constipation.

With uterine myoma, hormonal disorders are often observed, which can cause development and other disruptions in the body.

Very often, women are faced with an increase in weight, as fat metabolism deteriorates and the amount of cholesterol increases.

Often there are cases when completely myoma resolved, without any interventions, so do not immediately panic when making such a diagnosis.

When can a tumor disappear?

Many women are puzzled by the question, can uterine fibroids resolve?

This new formation is very dependent on hormonal balance. Depending on which hormones are present to a greater extent, the process of tumor development and its slowing down will also occur.

As practice shows, the myoma nodes can be reduced in size or disappear completely. In order to get rid of this pathology, it is necessary to provide conditions under which the estrogen rate will be reduced to a minimum. Very often this is observed at the time of onset of menopause. During this period, a woman's estrogen production decreases.

By the time menopause occurs, the body has a very low amount of hormone, which leads to the disappearance of myoma nodes. Such cases are not uncommon, but this is not a guarantee that the disease will be completely excluded without appropriate treatment.

The forecast will be more favorable for women with low weight, since the content of the hormone is minimal.

In order for the prognosis to be positive, it is very important that the woman does not have problems with being overweight.

This is due to the fact that adipose tissue is a place of accumulation of estrogen and after the onset of menopause, there is a high concentration of the hormone in places of fat deposition.

Myoma and gestation period

In the period of gestation, the woman's body is completely rebuilt. The balance of hormones is changing, there is an increase in progesterone and estrogen.

Indicators of these hormones directly affect the tumor. During pregnancy, the following changes are observed:

  • change in the balance of hormones
  • stretching uterine muscles
  • enlarged uterus
  • increased blood circulation in blood vessels.

During pregnancy, there is an increase in the development of the tumor, which is a natural phenomenon. The uterus enlarges, which becomes the cause of the increase in the myoma nodes.

Most often, active tumor growth occurs in the first half of pregnancy, after that, the size of the nodes becomes smaller.

After childbirth, the disease can disappear completely, since the female body during pregnancy is often subject to the process of fibroid degeneration. It is associated with pathologies such as:

  • necrosis of myoma tissue
  • bleeding
  • development of cysts.

Is it possible the disappearance of fibroids without treatment?

Before answering a question, myoma can resolve itself, is it possible? Initially, it is necessary to take into account certain facts.

To date, the reasons for which myoma is resolved itself is not fully determined. Many experts believe that this is due to changes in hormonal balance. It may also be associated with a violation of the blood circulation process in the places where myoma nodes are located.

The resorption of fibroids may have certain symptoms, which include:

  • nagging pains in places of the tumor,
  • temperature,
  • increase in the number of leukocytes,
  • increasing the tone of the uterus.

As a rule, such symptoms are present for several weeks. After the ultrasound, you can see that the tumor has become smaller or has completely disappeared

Uterine fibroids: can it resolve?

Indeed, such cases can be even without the appointment of therapy. However, it should be borne in mind that this happens in rare cases and is justified by such factors as the insignificant size of myoma education, its dependence on the estrogenic steroid component, the onset of the climacteric period of a woman’s life, in which there is a physiological decrease in the level of estrogen in the blood, respectively, and their effect on neoplasms in the uterus.

If a woman of reproductive age decided to choose a wait-and-see tactic, hoping for a spontaneous cure, then this time can be lost in vain and missed in terms of prescribing a more benign therapy with a small size of myoma node. Often, such women come to the reception at the obstetrician-gynecologist with already obvious and vivid clinical symptoms of the pathological process, which does not change the patient’s quality of life in a positive way.

The main and main rule in the treatment of myomatous lesions of the female reproductive organ is a timely comprehensive diagnosis that allows you to prescribe pathogenetically correct treatment.

Can uterine fibroids disappear?

Can the uterine fibroids of small sizes resolve? Subject to the small size of the site and competent therapy - yes, it can.

Qualified prescribed treatment includes the appointment of drugs such as combined oral contraceptives that balance hormonal balance,

agonists or antagonists of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, progesterone-type drugs, as well as anti-progesterone drugs that are used in the diagnosis of progesterone-dependent uterine myomas, the purpose of which is done by a doctor depending on the specific clinical situation.

It is also necessary to clarify from which drugs and actions we should not expect results in terms of tumor regression: herbal remedies in the form of infusions, decoctions, tinctures, dietary supplements, douching with herbs decoction, hirudotherapy (using medical leeches), using all sorts of physiotherapy procedures. These measures can only be taken as an auxiliary, secondary treatment.

How to dissolve uterine myoma medium size?

The sizes of myomatous neoplasms, not reaching the size at 12 weeks of gestation, are considered average. Alone drugs can not do here. Here doctors resort to intermediate methods between conservative and operational techniques. These include FUS ablation of myoma nodes, as well as uterine artery embolization. Each of these methods leads to necrosis of myomatous nodes only through various effects on the process itself. With FUS ablation, the nodal focus is affected by an ultrasonic wave, which thermally warms the myoma to temperatures of 60 degrees Celsius, as a result of which its death and necrotic changes in it occur.

Uterine fibroids after childbirth can disappear?

Uterine fibroids and pregnancy are a separate category of clinical cases, the course of which is simply impossible to predict.

Большинство случаев миомы матки во время беременности подвергаются стойкой регрессии, то есть узлы уменьшаются в размерах, а после родов контрольное ультразвуковое исследование может и вовсе констатировать ее отсутствие. Это происходит как раз с эстрогенозависимыми новообразованиями. Так как они лечатся прогестеронов. That pregnancy - this is a persistent progesterone background in fairly high concentrations. Accordingly, for 9 months, the nodes are in the physiological conditions of conservative hormonal therapy. Pregnancy affects such nodes positively. However, there are cases of such formations that caused urgent conditions that require surgical intervention. These are situations such as malnutrition of the node when necrosis occurs during pregnancy.

Symptoms of resorption of uterine fibroids. Many patients who have undergone these procedures, note the characteristic changes that are associated with regression of myoma education. they begin to notice a significant decrease in pain during menstruation, as well as after it, the symptoms of this neoplasm disappear, associated with the compression of neighboring organs such as the bladder, causing the accelerated urination to stop urination, the suppression on the rectum decreases - constipation begins to bother woman less and less.

Why does the disease appear?

The main reason why fibroids develop is a change in hormonal balance. Most often, this happens by the age of 30. The factors influencing this process can be attributed to stress, disruption of material metabolism, and negative environmental effects. A hormonal disorder is a decrease in estrogen production and an increase in progesterone.

Very often this is due to the fact that various disorders are present in the ovaries and the thyroid gland. Also, the causes of tumor development include:

  • poor nutrition,
  • obesity,
  • diabetes,
  • hormonal drugs,
  • different types of gynecological interventions
  • genetic predisposition
  • gestation period
  • diseases of the reproductive system
  • reducing the protective functions of the immune system,
  • constant stress exposure.

The reasons for which the tumor appears - a lot, so it is necessary to carry out prevention of the disease and be constantly monitored by a gynecologist.

Causes: Why do fibromas occur in the uterus?

Fibromas have an incidence of 35 to 45 years and are more common in childless women. They can occur individually, but also in large quantities. The latter refers to the so-called "myomatous uterus". The causes of fibroids are unclear. However, there is a clear correlation between the growth of fibroids and the hormonal group of estrogens. The more estrogen in the body, the faster myomas grow.

Symptoms: How are fibromas visible?

Fibromas are benign and, therefore, slowly growing tumors. Most sufferers have no symptoms, and fibrosis is detected by chance during a routine gynecological examination. If complaints arise, this usually occurs due to bleeding disorders during a period, such as bleeding, persistent bleeding, and very heavy bleeding. Equally common is ovulation disorder. Thus, fibromas can lead to infertility, as well as an increase in the frequency of miscarriages and premature births.

The reasons for which the tumor appears - a lot, so it is necessary to carry out prevention of the disease and be constantly monitored by a gynecologist.

Diagnosis: How is uterine fibroids detected?

Contrary to usually slow growth, pregnancy can lead to rapid growth. It is based on an increased level of estrogen. After pregnancy, fibroids usually become smaller again. Fibrosis is an easily identifiable, benign tumor. In most cases, the information provided by the interview of the patient and the subsequent physical examination along with an ultrasound examination is sufficient to diagnose fibroids. It is easy to feel the tumor because of its coarse texture. The surrounding uterine tissue is much softer.

With uterine myoma, hormonal disorders are often observed, which can cause development and other disruptions in the body.

Very often, women are faced with an increase in weight, as fat metabolism deteriorates and the amount of cholesterol increases.

Often there are cases when completely myoma resolved, without any interventions, so do not immediately panic when making such a diagnosis.

In an ultrasound examination, fibrosis is then surrounded by a capsule and, thus, unlike the surrounding muscles. Fibrosis can either lie directly in the muscle wall, behind the muscle layer, or in front of the muscle layer. Smaller fibroids are usually palpable, but not visible. Large fibroids can become enormous and bulge considerably baggy.

Treatment: What methods of myoma removal exist?

Rapid growth should exclude malignant fibroids. However, this is extremely rare and affects only about 0.1% of tumors classified as fibrosis. Fibrosis, which causes no symptoms, does not require any therapy. In order not to lose sight of the malignant events, the control of the size of the fibroids should be done at intervals, since rapid growth indicates a malignant tumor. If you have complaints, you can consider different types of therapy. Which option makes sense in your case will be discussed in detail by your specialist in myoma.

Features of the development and treatment of tumors

Fibroids can be located in the middle of the muscular layer of the uterine wall (intermuscular), on its outer surface (subperitoneal) or inside the uterus (submucosa). Sometimes the tumor is associated with the body of the uterus with a thin leg.

Due to the growth of fibroids in women increases the abdomen, as during pregnancy. The size of the tumor in cm is estimated using ultrasound and compared with an increase in the abdomen at a particular week of pregnancy. Depending on the diameter of myoma nodes, tumors are classified as follows:

  • small fibroids - diameter does not exceed 2-2.5 cm (respectively, the size of the abdomen is no more than at 5 weeks of pregnancy),
  • medium fibroids - about 5 cm (10-12 weeks),
  • larger fibroids - larger than 8 cm (the size of the abdomen is more than 12 weeks).

If a woman has a tumor of an insignificant size, the treatment is not carried out, her condition is periodically monitored by ultrasound.

Tumors larger than 8 cm (12 weeks) can pose a serious danger, causing complications during pregnancy and childbirth, miscarriage or infertility. Squeezing of neighboring organs and vessels leads to impaired urination, bowel work, and the occurrence of heart disease. Such tumors are eliminated by invasive methods (myomectomy, myometroectomy, hysterectomy), which provide for the surgical removal of only myoma nodes or the entire uterus.

At tumor sizes up to 8 cm (up to 12 weeks) in the absence of complications, the removal of uterine fibroids is performed without surgery.

Treatment methods without surgery

For treatment without surgery, medical preparations, physiotherapeutic procedures, and methods of minimally invasive removal of uterine fibroids are used. There are folk remedies to relieve the symptoms of fibroids.

The use of such methods is possible in the case when the size of uterine fibroids increases by no more than 2 cm during the year, the woman has no heavy uterine bleeding, leading to anemia. There is no sensation of pain, disruption of the organs caused by the pressure of the tumor. It is preliminarily established that there is no danger of twisting the leg of the tumor, or the degeneration of fibroids into uterine cancer.

FUS ablation

This is a non-contact (non-invasive) treatment method that does not require any punctures or incisions. A woman is placed in a magnetic resonance imaging chamber, and a high-frequency ultrasound beam is directed at myoma. The tumor cells are destroyed and evaporated, with no effect on neighboring tissues. The procedure is performed without anesthesia.

The method is not applicable in the presence of large and numerous myomatous nodes.

Physiotherapeutic methods

In the presence of fibroids can not conduct thermal physiotherapy procedures associated with increased blood flow in the body. This can lead to tumor growth.

Procedures are used to relieve inflammation of the uterus, as well as those that help to reduce the size of the tumor (medical baths, electrophoresis, magnetic therapy). They are carried out immediately after the end of menstruation.

Gerudotherapy

Leech therapy. Due to the pressure of the tumor on the vessels, the outflow of venous blood becomes difficult, the veins are dilated, which causes pain in a woman. A small bloodletting with leeches helps to eliminate blood stasis. Adherents of this method of getting rid of a tumor without an operation claim that biologically active substances contained in leech saliva can have a resolving effect, contributing to the reduction of the size of fibroids.

The method is contraindicated in women with anemia, poor blood clotting, low blood pressure. Such treatment cannot be used if there are doubts about the benign nature of the tumor.

Traditional methods of treatment

For the treatment of uterine myoma in folk medicine, medicinal plants containing phytoestrogens, tannins, essential oils, vitamins and trace elements are used. They are prepared infusions, decoctions for oral administration, as well as compositions for douching or use with tampons. Valuable substances of natural origin (propolis, mumiye) are also used, from which antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory drugs are prepared.

Reminder: Before using folk remedies, it is imperative to consult with your doctor, undergo a preliminary examination, as the substances contained in them can cause an allergic reaction or even poisoning, affect the hormones.

Infusion of a mixture of boron uterus and red brushes

Act:
Borovaya uterus is an herb containing substances of anti-inflammatory, antitumor action. Red brush contains phytoestrogens, essential oils, antibacterial agents. The composition of both plants has many trace elements, as well as vitamins.

Application:
Dried herbs are ground into powder. Take 1 tbsp. l each, mix and pour 1 cup of boiling water. Stand 15 minutes on very low heat, then cool and filter, carefully pressing the precipitate. Within 2 weeks, take three times a day for 1 hour before meals and 1 tablespoon. broth. After a break of 1-2 weeks, you can repeat the treatment.

Flax Seed Broth

Act:
Flax seeds contain phytoestrogens, as well as anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory substances. The hormonal background is normalized, work of intestines improves.

Application:
4 tsp. seeds are brewed with 0.5 liters of boiling water, kept in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes. Drink the cooled broth half an hour before meals for ½ cup. The treatment is carried out for 2 weeks.

Potato Juice

Act:
It is taken as an anti-inflammatory, anesthetic. It has a diuretic effect. Improved water-salt metabolism, which helps eliminate puffiness of the tissues of the pelvic organs.

Application:
Used juicy young potatoes. After thorough washing, the potatoes are peeled, rubbed, grated, squeezed. Only freshly squeezed potato juice is used. It is taken in the morning, on an empty stomach for 1 glass for 3 months. Then you should take a break for 4 months, after which the treatment can be repeated. Potato juice can not be taken if there are diseases such as gastritis, diabetes.

Celandine tincture

Act:
Fibroids with a size of a few mm are absorbed without any surgery after applying 1 course of treatment. To reduce the size of larger fibroids, repeat the course after 2 months.

Application:
Pour 1 tbsp. l chopped celandine 10 tbsp. l vodka. Insist in a dark place for 2 weeks, filter.

The tincture is consumed within 30 days. On the 1st day take 1 drop of tincture, dissolved in 100 ml of water. Then the number of added drops is increased by 1 per day until they reach 15, after which they begin to decrease 1 drop each day.

To reduce the volume of uterine bleeding with myoma, decoction of nettle, yarrow, burdock, barberry is used.

MYTH 1: Uterine fibroids are almost a cancer or a “precancerous” condition

In fact. Uterine fibroids are not associated with cancer, does not cause them, and is not even a predisposing factor.

The only malignant tumor of the smooth muscle cells of the uterus (leiomyosarcoma) is one of the most rarely encountered soft tissue tumors. It can occur in the uterus, but as an independent disease, and not as a result of the malignant transformation of uterine fibroids. Thus, the doctor's reasoning on the possibility of developing cancer from fibroids is unfounded and cannot be an indication for performing a radical operation. This is a very common misconception that helps to convince patients with myoma to agree to the removal of the uterus.

The rapid growth of nodes is also not an alarm, as it does not belong to the signs of cancer, which has been proven by numerous studies. As a rule, rapid growth is due to secondary (degenerative) changes in the node and its edema.

Therefore, if the doctor in determining the indications for radical surgery for uterine fibroids indicates a possible oncological nature of the disease or a high risk of its development, it is quite possible that it is worth changing the doctor and get another independent consultation.

It is important to note that this is only a malignant disease of the muscles of the uterus. The absence of a malignant process in the uterine myoma does not exclude the possibility of developing a malignant disease in other parts of the uterus (endometrial mucosa) or cervix (although preventive measures and early detection are known, quite simple and accessible). But these processes are not associated with the presence of fibroids, and the diagnosis of uterine fibroids does not increase the risk of developing these diseases.

MYTH 2: Myoma - from hormones, the first thing you need to pass tests for hormones

In fact. When examining a patient with uterine myoma, hormone tests are usually not needed.

Often, when making a diagnosis of uterine fibroids, the doctor prescribes an examination for hormones, apparently assuming that these data will allow him to shed light on the causes of uterine fibroids and help in choosing a treatment method.

In fact, there is no need for such analyzes.

  • Uterine fibroids is a local pathology of the uterine lining, and each node grows in the uterus as a result of damage to a single cell.
  • The level of hormones does not affect the occurrence of this defect and does not determine the development of the disease.
  • Uterine fibroids are detected in women with a normal menstrual cycle, women easily become pregnant and give birth to uterine myoma.
  • The choice of treatment for fibroids is not related to the level of sex hormones.

Thus, this is an unnecessary examination, which you do not need to undergo, and if the doctor offers it and indicates its importance in diagnosis and treatment, it is worthwhile to doubt that the doctor understands the nature of this disease and will be able to recommend you the correct method of treatment.

MYTH 3: When diagnosing uterine fibroids, first thing to do is scraping (brushing)

In fact. Scraping the uterine cavity is not necessary for all patients in a row with uterine myoma.

Curettage of the uterus is performed according to strict indications, which include:

  • polyps detected by ultrasound,
  • endometrial hyperplasia,
  • uterine bleeding of unknown origin,
  • complaints of intermenstrual bleeding.

In all other cases, when the patient has moderate not prolonged menstruation, the endometrium is clearly visible during ultrasound and there are no pathological changes in it, aspiration biopsy (pipe biopsy) of the endometrium is sufficient. This is a painless, outpatient procedure that is performed without anesthesia.

As a result of curettage, as with an aspiration biopsy, you can get information about the condition of the uterine lining (endometrium), but these diagnostic methods do not provide any information about the condition of myomatous nodes, as is often explained to patients. This study is only necessary to exclude endometrial pathology, which could interfere with the organ-preserving treatment of uterine fibroids.

MYTH 4: Miomu should always be actively treated!

In fact. Uterus fibroids, which are not accompanied by symptoms, do not require treatment in a woman who is not planning a pregnancy.

Not all myomatous nodes progressively grow during the reproductive period of the woman. Part of the nodes can grow to a certain size and then stop growing or progress slowly at a rate of, say, 5 mm per year. If the nodes do not deform the uterine cavity, there are no clinical manifestations (that is, they do not affect the quality of life of the woman) - treatment in this case is not required, dynamic monitoring is sufficient.

At the same time, it should be noted that the patient herself can not formulate the presence of specific complaints (heavy menstruation, feeling pressure on the bladder, abdominal enlargement), so in any case, it is necessary to undergo an examination by a gynecologist, to do an ultrasound and to assess the level of hemoglobin. К примеру, падение гемоглобина может указывать на неправильную оценку обильности менструаций, а увеличение талии или рост живота может быть принято за набор веса, а не рост миоматозных узлов.But to agree to the operation in the absence of symptoms of the disease is not worth it.

Myth 5: Even a little myoma needs to be removed - “for prevention”

In fact. It is impossible to predict the growth dynamics of uterine fibroids and predict the prognosis of the disease. In this regard, prophylactic surgical interventions in relation to uterine fibroids are unacceptable, as is the removal of the uterus, carried out only in connection with the patient's lack of desire to have children in the future.

When choosing a method of treating uterine fibroids, the doctor cannot operate with his own assumptions about how the disease will develop and what consequences the patient’s inaction may have. Uterine fibroids - education with a very unpredictable nature of growth, so you need to evaluate it in dynamics, always taking into account the presence of complaints, the age of the patient and her plans for pregnancy. It is important to remember that uterine fibroids - a disease that will end in menopause, that is, fibroids have a logical ending.

Attitude to the uterus as an organ only for carrying children is also unacceptable, since the uterus is involved in a number of important processes in the body, ensures a full-fledged sex life and the formation of an orgasm. Removal of the uterus can significantly affect health (increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases and metabolic disorders), which is confirmed by hundreds of convincing foreign studies. Sadly, some gynecologists prefer to forget about these data in order to persuade patients to remove the uterus.

MYTH 6: Remove the uterus - it's that easy and great! And no problems later!

In fact. Removal of the uterus is not a “simple and safe operation without any consequences for the body” and cannot be considered as the main method of treating uterine fibroids in women who are not planning a pregnancy.

Any surgery, even very simple may have the most serious consequences for the patient, including death. It is very difficult to predict the development of rare but possible complications. Therefore, experienced and experienced surgeons have the phrase: "The best operation is the one without which we managed to do." Surgical intervention should be carried out according to strict indications and mainly in those cases when it is impossible to do without it, there is no alternative, and if it is not done, a threat to the life of the patient, or for its quality, is possible. If there is at least some adequate opportunity to avoid surgery, you should try to avoid surgery.

In the overwhelming majority of cases, patients with myoma are removed from the uterus, without offering any alternative to this operation, presenting this intervention as simple and safe, having no consequences for the organism. Often, asymptomatic patients, frightened by the terrible consequences of their illness, end up on such an intervention.

The implications of removing the uterus with or without appendages are well known. It was proved that such patients develop cardiovascular diseases much more often, there are problems with weight, endocrine disorders, and the likelihood of the development of three types of malignant tumors increases. A separate group are more likely diseases of the nervous system, mood disorders and motivation. All these unpleasant phenomena, as a rule, do not develop immediately after surgery, but over the following years, so patients often do not associate them with the surgery and begin treatment with other specialists. Similarly, gynecologists no longer see these women, and they have the false impression that everything is in order.

Removal of the uterus should not be taken as the only possible and simple method of treating uterine fibroids. Removal of the uterus - this is the last step in the list of all possible methods of treatment, to which it is necessary to resort only as a last resort. Run away from the doctor who tells you such things: “Do not be afraid, this is a simple operation, such operations are performed by hundreds of thousands, there are practically no complications, you will quickly return to normal life, as this will be a laparoscopic operation, no consequences, you just say thanks to me why do you need to go with this bag with knots, because you are no longer going to give birth ... "

MYTH 7: Once there is fibroids - forget about the bath and tan!

In fact. Sunburn, baths, saunas and massage are not contraindicated in patients with uterine myoma, since there is no scientific evidence of the influence of these factors on the growth and development of myoma nodes.

We did not manage to find any reliable scientific research that would show the connection between the listed physical effects and the growth of myoma nodes. All the arguments on this subject are purely speculative. This does not mean that having learned about it, you need to sunbathe under the hot sun all day long without reasonable restrictions or spend hours in the sauna for hours. Just in the presence of this disease, you should not make significant changes in your usual way of life and limit yourself, try to keep moderation in everything and avoid abuse.

Myth 8: Once there is fibroids, then birth will not succeed!

In fact. Uterine fibroids are almost never the cause of infertility, but may be the cause of miscarriage. Not in all cases it is necessary to remove myoma nodes before pregnancy.

Influence on the course of pregnancy and interfere with its development can nodes that grow into the uterus or significantly deform it. Not all nodes can potentially interfere with the course of pregnancy, and it is not necessary to remove all myomatous nodes from the uterus before pregnancy, including small and growing outside of the uterus. It is important to properly assess the value of these nodes for pregnancy, and to make the right decision: what will be more risky for a woman - pregnancy with such nodes or pregnancy with scars on the uterus after the removal of these nodes.

Now more and more women are going to get pregnant with myomatous nodes, competent reproductive specialists perform IVF with myomatous nodes in the uterus with a good result. In other words, the fear of uterine myoma in the aspect of pregnancy and childbirth has passed. At the present time, scars can be more troubles after removal of nodes from the uterus, which are not always well sutured, and as a result, increase the risk of uterine rupture, placenta ingrowth and other terrible obstetric complications.

MYTH 9: The sizes of fibroids on ultrasound are determined with high accuracy! If yesterday was 25 mm, and today 28 mm, then the node has grown!

In fact: Evaluation of the growth of myoma nodes by ultrasound is often accompanied by measurement errors. The most objective method for assessing myoma nodes is MRI.

Often, an asymptomatic patient with uterine myoma is informed that lately her node (or nodes) has grown significantly, and this is a reason to remove the uterus, as the disease progresses and "there is little else can be ...".

It must be remembered that the myoma node in shape is not a ball, not an oval, or even a square. Myoma in shape most resembles potatoes (our domestic, and not imported ideal shape and symmetry). That is, in a two-dimensional plane, it can be measured in different ways, and the difference between the dimensions can be significant.

For an objective assessment of the growth of nodes, it is necessary not only to fix 2-3 measurements of the node, but also to take appropriate photos, in order to later see in which planes the measurements were taken. Or use an objective diagnostic method - MRI. All this means that if you do not have any complaints, and at the next visit to the gynecologist you were frightened by the rapid growth of the nodes - there is no need to panic. Firstly, as noted above, there is no evidence of an oncological process in rapid growth, and secondly, this may be an elementary error in the measurement of the node. In such cases, it is necessary to fix these dimensions, take a photo or MRI and repeat the measurements after 3-4 months. This is the optimal time to see a tendency to increase nodes and not to significantly start the disease.

MYTH 10: You can cure myoma with dietary supplements, herbs and other “miraculous” methods

In fact. "Indinol", "Epigalat", bioresonance therapy, boron uterus, herbs, leeches are not methods of treatment of uterine fibroids

"Indinol", "Epigalat" - this is not drugs, that is, these substances, by definition, can not have a therapeutic effect on the body. These are biologically active food supplements. The only thing they can do is to compensate for the lack of vitamins or trace elements in the body. Time and money spent on “treatment” with these drugs will be wasted. The same applies to the boron uterus and some kind of brush, and other widely proposed methods of treatment of uterine fibroids.

Myomatous nodes consist of muscle and fibrous fibers - like very dry and stringy meat. They are located in the wall of the uterus (it is muscle tissue), that is, the structure of the nodes as a normal piece of meat. It is impossible to remove another piece of meat from various pills or decoctions or leeches "from one piece of meat." It can either be cut or selectively cut off the blood supply so that it will die and “wither”. This rather naturalistic example is given so that you understand correctly what your disease really is and realistically looked at the effectiveness of a particular treatment method.

MYTH 11: Myoma treatment begins with "Duphaston". Maybe help!

In fact. Duphaston is contraindicated in patients with uterine myoma as the main treatment for this disease.

This paradox will never go down in history. Patients with uterine myoma continue to be treated with duphaston, while the second generation of drugs is already being released to reduce uterine fibroids with the effect on the knot tissue completely opposite to duphaston.

Duphaston is a complete analogue of the natural hormone progesterone. This hormone is the main factor stimulating the growth of myoma nodes. In other words, the appointment of duphaston only stimulates the growth of nodes, and does not reduce them. The latest product on the market for the treatment of uterine fibroids Esmia selectively blocks progesterone receptors, preventing it from realizing its effect on cells, which leads to the cessation of node growth and their reduction, but this effect is reversible, since the drug cannot be taken for a long time. Thus, duphaston grows myoma nodes, rather than curing uterine myoma. And if a doctor prescribes this drug for you as a treatment for uterine fibroids (the drug can be reasonably prescribed to cause menstruation, and this is acceptable) - change the doctor.

MYTH 12: If there is a fibroid, you need to cut the fibroid!

In fact. Surgical removal of myoma nodes in women who are not planning a pregnancy is completely meaningless. At least since there is an alternative in the form of uterine artery embolization (EMA).

In most cases, myomectomy (removal of nodes from the uterus) is an operation aimed at temporarily restoring the anatomy of the uterus to allow a woman to bear and give birth to a child. The temporary effect of myomectomy is associated with a high frequency of node recurrences (10–15% per year!). If a woman is not planning a pregnancy, and she has symptomatic uterine fibroids - in most cases, embolization of the uterine arteries should be preferred. Why? The fact is that EMA with an efficiency of 96–98% eliminates all the symptoms of uterine fibroids, that is, solves the main problem of a woman that affects the quality of life. The probability of disease recurrence after EMA is less than 2% over the entire observation period. Moreover, as a rule, such a relapse is associated with the restoration of blood flow and is easily eliminated by an additional procedure. Thus, thanks to EMA, the patient solves the problem of uterine fibroids once and for all. Nor does she have to undergo general anesthesia and abdominal surgery. This fully applies to laparoscopic operations, the frequency of complications in which is even higher than with conventional (laparotomic) operations.

Obviously, a complex and relatively long operation under general anesthesia, accompanied by blood loss, with a list of dozens of possible complications, and also leading to relapses is not the most optimal way to solve the problem of heavy menstruation or pressure on the bladder when there is an alternative in the form uterine artery embolization. Think about it.
