Fibroid clinic

Uterine fibroids are common non-cancer growths that develop in the uterus. Many women may not even be aware they have fibroids, as they often do not cause any symptoms. However, some women may experience heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, frequent urination, or difficulty getting pregnant.
Depending on their number, size, and location, some uterine fibroids can have a significant impact on the chance of getting pregnant or other complications in pregnancy.
To diagnose uterine fibroids, the first steps is typically with a pelvic exam with imaging tests like ultrasound or MRI. These tests can help determine the size, number, and location of any fibroids present.
The management of uterine fibroids is tailored to the individual, taking into account factors like the woman’s age, symptoms, desire for future fertility, and the size and location of the fibroids.

For women experiencing symptoms, there are various treatment options. Medical therapies like hormonal contraceptives, anti-inflammatory drugs, and medications that shrink fibroids can help manage symptoms. Minimally invasive surgical procedures like myomectomy (removal of fibroids) or uterine artery embolization (cutting off the blood supply to fibroids) may be options for women who want to preserve fertility. Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) provides a definitive cure for women who do not desire future pregnancy.
​The choice of treatment should be made collaboratively between the patient and their healthcare provider, considering the risks, benefits, and the woman’s personal preferences. With the range of available options, most women with uterine fibroids can find an effective treatment to manage their symptoms and preserve their health.
