Introduction of Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are tumors of the muscle lining the wall of the uterus (womb). They are therefore also known as "myoma" or muscle tumors. Fibroids are almost always benign (not cancerous) and can be solitary or multiple. They vary is size and only in unusual cases become very large. Fibroids are most common in women between ages 40-50 years and may be dormant without any symptoms or may cause excessive bleeding and pressure symptoms leading to frequent urination and rectal pressure.

Location of Fibroids

Depending on their location fibroids are classified as:
Submucosal fibroids which grow into the uterine cavity. Intramural fibroids which grow within the wall of the uterus. Subserosal fibroids which grow on the outside of the uterus.

Should I opt for homeopathic medicines if I have fibroids?
Yes, you definitely should provided the fibroids are small to medium size, irrespective of their number. The location too plays an important role and fibroids which are within the uterine cavity (submucousal) and within the uterine wall (Intramural) are easier to treat. Intramural (within the wall) fibroids can be reduced in size and cannot be expunged or dissected naturally like those in the uterine cavity (submucousal).
