Uterine Fibroids

Uterine Fibroids


One of the most frequent problems with the female reproductive system is uterine fibroids. Orthodox medical procedures are frequently available to those seeking therapy for fibroids, pushing the patient farther into pain. The epidemiology of female uterine fibroids is not on par with its significant frequency worldwide. Adenomyosis, sometimes misdiagnosed as a fibroid, also comes with severe, protracted “painful” symptoms and must be treated. Uterine fibroid can be identified with a straightforward pelvic ultrasound. However, adenomyosis should be ruled out or diagnosed using an MRI. It can be categorized by where a uterine fibroid grows or how it is connected to the uterus. 




Leiomyomas, commonly known as uterine fibroids, are growths consisting of muscle and tissue that develop in or on the uterine wall. These growths are the most prevalent noncancerous tumor in women and those designated female at birth (AFAB) and are often not malignant (benign). Numerous symptoms, including pain and heavy, irregular vaginal bleeding, can be brought on by fibroids. Sometimes a person with fibroids is completely symptom-free and unaware of it. Your symptoms will typically determine how to treat fibroids. According to their location and method of attachment, fibroids can be classified into several categories. Uterine fibroids can take the following forms:

  • Intramural fibroids are fibroids that have grown inside the uterine muscle. They are the most prevalent kind.
  • Submucosal fibroids: These tumors develop beneath your uterus’s mucous membrane.
  • Subserosal fibroids: These tumors develop beneath the uterine lining on the outside. They may grow into your pelvis and get extremely big.
  • The least frequent variety, pedunculated fibroids, is attached to your uterus by a stalk or stem. They are frequently compared to mushrooms since they have a stalk before a broader top.

If you have uterine fibroids, you can feel various emotions. If your fibroids are little, you might not even be aware that you have any at all. But for larger fibroids, you might feel pain and discomfort. Backache, stabby abdominal pain, and even pain during sex can all be symptoms of fibroids.


Causes and Symptoms:


Uterine adenomyosis and fibroids are the two most common causes of uterine fibroids in infertile women.

  • Fibroids, called leiomyomas, are benign tumors that develop in the uterine muscles.
  • The circular swelling of the uterus, known as adenomyosis, results from tissue that normally borders the uterus beginning to grow inside the muscular wall of the uterus.
  • When a woman is pregnant, the uterus usually fits in the pelvis. Your uterus will increase in size 1,000 times throughout pregnancy, going from the size of a clenched fist to the size of a watermelon or bigger by the time you give birth.


Uterine Fibroids can cause symptoms in people with them, depending on their size, location, and number. The following are some of the prominent characteristics and indicators of uterine fibroids in affected women:

  • Extreme menstrual bleeding
  • Menstrual periods that last more than an entire week
  • Pelvic pressure or discomfort
  • Often urinating
  • Bladder emptying challenges
  • Constipation
  • Leg or back discomfort

Occasionally, when a uterine fibroid outgrows its blood supply and starts to die, it can produce severe pain. The main criterion for classifying uterine is location. Intramural fibroids form within the muscles of the vaginal membrane. Submucosal fibroids protrude into the uterine cavity. Subserosal uterine fibroids protrude from the uterus’s wall.


Homeopathic Treatment for Uterine Fibroids:


Conventional remedies for uterine fibroids don’t come in just one form. The optimal prescription considers all of your symptoms and prescribes a constitutional cure. Several effective treatments include:

  • One of the most popular homeopathic treatments for uterine fibroids and extremely heavy menstruation is Thlaspi Bursa Pastoris. It is administered when the periods are protracted, frequent, and extremely uncomfortable. The medication significantly relieves the problems caused by fibroids and lessens the severity of the symptoms.
  • Another wonderful homeopathic treatment for heavy and regular periods that occasionally includes dizziness is calerea carb. The problems typically worsen on a demanding and exhausting day. In these situations, calerea carbohydrate lessens the piercing, cutting the frequency of menstruation while easing fibroids’ burden.
  • Homeopathic medicine, calcerea fluor, should be taken when tumors are large and solid. The finest homeopathic remedy for treating numerous fibroids is calerea fluor. It aids in reducing fibroids and restores the flexibility of the smooth muscles of the uterus. Additionally, Calcarea Fluor relieves the discomfort and weight of fibroids.
  • When fibroids produce severe period pain, belladonna, and sepia officinalis are recommended. Belladonna can be extremely beneficial if the discomfort results in an abdominal cramping sensation. On the other hand, Sepia Officinalis significantly lessens the fibroids’ searing agony. As a result of uterine expansion, sepia also lessens the feeling of weight weighing down and offers protection against recurring vaginal and urinary tract infections. 
  • Another successful homeopathic treatment for uterine fibroids-related menstrual discomfort is phosphorus. It is especially beneficial when a woman experiences early and protracted periods and stitching discomfort in the lower back and abdomen. These menstruation symptoms are reduced, and the discomfort is greatly reduced.
  • A pulsatilla is useful when a woman experiences huge, dark blood clots along with her period. It decreases the discomfort of menstruation and the pressure brought on by large fibroids.

Additional often-given homeopathic medications for the management of uterine fibroids involve the following:

  • Apis mellifica
  • Fraxinus Americana
  • Kali Carbonicum
  • Ferrum Met
  • Calcarea Phos

Even though some medications can offer momentary relief, surgery is the only long-term solution for uterine fibroids. Myomectomy and hysterectomy are the two main surgical procedures for treating fibroids. The uterus is left intact in a myomectomy, and the surgeon removes the fibroids. Small fibroids can be removed successfully with this procedure. Even after a myomectomy, there is a significant chance that the condition will return. Your doctor might advise having a hysterectomy if you have recurrent, large, or many fibroids. The surgical procedure known as a hysterectomy involves partial or total removal of the uterus and fibroids.
