Hi Candace, I do not have an answer to your question. I have fibroids also, and mine is somewhat complicated because I still want to have children. I’ll look up Activella to know more about it.

Hi Lillian – Activella is my hormone replacement therapy. It has the least amount of risks involved and it is great for my menopause – hot flashes, etc…..Well I am 55 years old and will not be having any children. But I just feel I need another opinion and see if there is anything else I can do to take to get rid of these fibroids or is there anything out there that will make them dissolve….

Hi Candace. Thanks for explaining. One of my doctors told me that there are medications that can shrink fibroids. However, one of the problems is that the fibroids will return once I stop taking the medications. He did not recommend the medications for me.

Interesting…..my doctor told me that there is nothing I can take to shrink them at all…..I did go on the internet and found different websites stating they have meds to dissolve them…..I don’t know…..I plan on going to an OBGYN soon and hopefully that doctor can give me more information….Although I do appreciate all the info you have shared with me – thank you so much. Very helpful.

Apparently Lupron/similar meds may make the fibroids smaller, but it has side effects that you will want to consider first as well. I suggest meeting with a specialist in the area of fibroids. I also have heard that they typically shrink on their own with menopause.
