Uterine Conditions

Women Talk About Fibroid Tumors

January 15, 2018

23 and Scared!

I found out 2 weeks ago I have 3 Uterine Fibroid Tumors inside my uterus. Two are little,the big one measures 6 cm and my uterus measures 7 cm. They’re worried because the significant one grew fast, which might mean cancer. Is it possible for a Fibroid to grow this big? I will have my uterus taken out in about 1-2 weeks.

Living with Fibroids

I am 35 and just found out that I have a fibroid tumor it is 3.5 centimeters in size… I’m in desperate need of assistance if not , then mentally… it’s really painful to have a relationship with my spouse… If there’s anyone out there that has gone or is going through that please let me know how you cope with this on a day to day basis? 

Lupron & Pregnancy

I took Lupron for 1 month to get fibroids. I bleed the whole time whilst on it. It never ceased my time… decided to quit dairy, beef ( minimal animal fat) caffeine and tried to ill to a low fat diet with whole grains and had fibroid shrinkage. …I also would love to know if anyone has had a false pregnancy test while on Lupron? The test say no but my symptoms say yes I’m wondering is it Lupron within my own system causing the adverse outcome. 

Hysterectomy Recommended

I am 46 years old, I have been told I have a thyroid gland, the magnitude of a per week embryo.

My gynecologist has recommended a hysterectomy, due to the magnitude of the fibroid tumor. I haven’t experienced any symptoms caused by the tumor. My periods are regular, I have no abnormal bleeding. I have been told that due to the magnitude of the tumor, that abdominal hysterectomy is my only option.

My question is, are there any options? 

Pregnancy Possibilities

I have uterine fibroids. Initially , they. . .were relatively easily removed… they recurred. This time they are in the wall… I’ve been largely symptom free for weeks… I don’t have the bleeding problems I was having. I really do have bloating fairly frequently… My issue is that: I’m trying to become pregnant. My doctor said I shouldn’t have a problem getting pregnant or maintaining a pregnancy, I would have a slightly greater chance of miscarriage. I want to hear from other girls who have been through this and get an idea what to expect.

Fibroids or Colon?

I went into the doctor today due to a massive mass… It starts at my pubic bone and extends all of the way around my navel. It doesn’t hurt at all, but for the two weeks before my period my back aches and I get constipated, and my periods are very heavy. Now, the doctor said fibroids, 2 things and colon. Obviously I’m praying for the fibroids. I figure if it had been the colon, together with the size of this thing that I would be very sick. And besides the backache I feel good… If anybody has some experience here, then please let me know something, I am quite nervous. 

Calcified Fibroid on Bladder

I have a calcified fibroid tumor in my gut.

I’d x-rays removed when I went in to complain about leg pain, the x-ray tech said there was something on my gut, doctor didn’t mention it. I went to the chiropractor and he took x-rays and needed a radiologist read it and said it was a calcified fibroid tumor… The chiropractor tried to phone him and discuss it but would not return telephone… any thoughts, has anybody else had a calcified fibroid tumor? 

Pain & Anxiety

I’ve got a fibroid measuring 2.5. I feel such abdominal pain… I get stress… pains that trickle down or up my inner thighs… feels just a little muscle in character, such as a Charlie horse. My biggest fear is never feeling well… I have grown constipation… My Dr. doesn’t need to do anything unless that thing grows to 5. Meanwhile I’m continuously down and out…

Any suggestions, recommendations? Similar symptoms? I would appreciate all input. Can you ever feel this way?

Natural Progesterone

I discovered that using natural progesterone cream will create the fibroids vanish. Is this true or magic?

Looking Pregnant

Could having fibroid tumors cause you to seem like you are four weeks pregnant? Do fibroids make you look pregnant?
