just found out I have uterine fibroids

Posted by mindy62 @mindy62, Mar 20, 2012

I was just diagnosed with uterine fibroids. I see a gynecologist on Thursday (2/22/2012). I’ve done some Internet research, but I’d really like some practical advice from women who have been through this. I’ve been bleeding with bad cramps for almost two months. Provera helped with the bleeding for a couple weeks, but when I stopped taking it, the bleeding started again. Provera has made me irritable and moody, upset my stomach and made sleeping difficult. This concerns me in regards to any possible future hormonal treatment for this problem. Can anyone help me with some advice and also some idea of what I should expect? Thanks.

Have you discussed surgery with your doctor? As far as I know, surgery is really the only option to treat fibroids. There are many types of procedures to treat fibroids these days from surgical removal to artery embolization (which shrinks the fibroids)

I was just diagnosed and am so tired of the bleeding…any medications that can be helpful?
