Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are abnormal growths that develop in or on a woman’s uterus. They may be caused by hormonal changes. Sometimes there is a familial tendency to develop fibroids.


70-80% women develop fibroids after age 50.


Types of fibroids-


- Intramural


- Subserosal


- Pedunculated


- Submucosal


Symptoms-


- Asymptomatic


- Lower Abdominal pain


- Heavy bleeding during menstrual cycle


- Distension of abdomen


- Lower back pain


- Infertility


Treatment-




  1. Medications that regulate hormone levels may be given to shrink fibroids. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, such as leuprolide (Lupron), will cause estrogen and progesterone levels to decrease. This will eventually stop menstruation and shrink fibroids.




  2. Myomectomy- removing the fibroids. Either by open surgery or Laparoscopy or Hysteroscopy in case of submucosal fibroid




  3. Hysterectomy- Open or Laparoscopic in women who have completed their families.
