Fibroid are probably the most known and feared disease of the female reproductive system. they affect a significant number of women. They are non cancerous tumors that grow anywhere within the uterine muscles. The uterine muscles are composed of the wall of the uterus, the interior of the uterus, under the linings of the uterus and the outside of the uterus. Usually, the uterine muscle can have multiple fibroid that distort its shape and interior lining. They can grow to be extremely large or remain relatively small. It is unclear about what causes fibroid though high o estrogen levels seem to stimulate their development. High o estrogen is experienced during pregnancy.
Symptoms of fibroid depend on the size, site and number present in the uterus muscles.
When the fibroid grows to be large in the uterus walls, they cause severe pain and pressure in the pelvic area especially during the menstruation period. The fibroid press on the bladder resulting on a frequented urination. They may also pressure the rectum resulting in constipation. Due to their overgrown nature, large fibroid may cause the abdomen to stretch. Although large, some fibroid may not be all painful.
When the fibroid grows from within the uterus and is large, it does pressure the walls and thus causes severe pain. Such fibroid that are still growing, to their full sizes or just fading out usually are painful.
When the fibroid grow below the linings of the uterus, they usually cause heavy bleeding during menstruation. The menstrual period usually also occurs longer than normal. With the heavy bleeding, a lot of blood is lost. As it is lost, red blood cells count decreases and thus fibroid can cause anemia.
Are you trying to get pregnant and it is not working out? You probably need to consult a doctor. When they grow inside the uterus and in the fallopian tube, they block the passage resulting in infertility. Implantation of the ovaries becomes impossible. Although they affect the reproduction process, one can still become pregnant and go through the process healthy. During delivery, it is determined by how the fibroid were treated. If surgery was used, it follows suit that caesarean section procedure will be used.
In the prevention of fibroid, we have to boost our good friendly bacteria in our intestines (pro-biotics).
Followed by a sufficient intake of plant hormones (from a variety of sources) to give the body Pregnenolone,a pre hormone that will meet the needs of our Endocrine system. This will make sure your body’s hormones are in balance.
Third and most important is a range of nutrients called Glyconutrients which are sugars naturally derived from plants, mushrooms, bark of tree, roots and seaweed. These sugars are the cell building blocks of our body and responsible for Cellular Communication – how our body responds, repairs and restores. This is now a relatively new science called Glycobiology. Having these Glyconutrients in your system ensures the body is able to communicate and recognize the enemies and the mismanagement, within the body, where and when it happens. Over time, the body will do the necessary corrections the best it can.
You must not forget the other basics like regular exercise, intake of enough vitamins and minerals (plant sourced), anti-oxidants and omega-3. Also remember to drink good clean filtered water , it does help in detoxification.
If they are not that painful, do not ignore and assume them as pregnancy or menstrual or pelvic pain. It is recommended that you have regular medical checkups. It helps in determining the size of the fibroid, the treatment and management too. A procedure known as hysterectomy is a permanent solution for eliminating fibroid. This procedure removes the uterus and it can result in permanent infertility. Other mild options are myomectomy whereby only the fibroid are removed and the use of medication.
