FIBROIDS IN YOUR WOMB
Uterine fibroids?-fibrous tissue growing inside or just
outside the uterus?are fairly common, especially in women between the
ages of 35 and 40. Some sources claim that almost half of all women in
this age group have at least 1 fibroid, and that some have up to 100.
Fibroids appear to be at least partially the result of genes, so be aware of your family history. Other risk factors include a high-fat diet, alcohol
consumption, B-vitamin deficiency, stress and excess weight. But often,
fibroids are due to too much of a potentially carcinogenic form of
While estrogen's ability to stimulate cell growth is great for
skin and hair, it can be a major problem when it comes to uterine tissue. Fibroids are easiest to treat when they are small, but they are also very hard to detect at this stage?tiny fibroids rarely produce any symptoms. Many women are not aware that they even have them.
As fibroids grow larger, however, they cause menstrual bleeding to
increase, and they become quite painful, especially during menstruation.
Eventually, they can press on your surrounding organs, especially the bladder and
kidneys, and this sometimes causes such severe symptoms that removal is
the only option. Some surgeons, however, are able to remove only the fibroids and keep the uterus intact, but this does not solve the problem. About half of the women who
keep their uteruses find that their fibroids grow back. Fibroids are responsible for about
one-third of all hysterectomies.
