Uterine fibroid, also known as tumors occur in the female reproductive system during childbearing years.

Contrary to their name they are noncancerous and occur to nearly 70-80 % of women in their lifetime.

Most often this uterine fibroid will not create any symptoms until they get discovered though other reasons such as a pelvic exam or prenatal ultrasound.

Women’s who do face symptoms may report the following

• Constipation
• Backache
• Frequent urination
• Heavy menstrual bleeding
• Pain during intercourse

How symptoms show up also depend upon their location, size and no and hence a homeopath adjusts the remedies accordingly.

The size and growth of these fibroids may vary even in the same women. They can be of size undetectable or grow as large to a size that can push the rib cage.

They are also known as uterine myomas, leiomyomas, or fibromas.

These fibroids are made from smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue.

Fibroids occur mainly in women of childbearing age since, after menopause, they shrunk in size due to the lack of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.

The exact reason for their development is still not known but studies point the source to be genetic.

Depending upon the location, we can categorize this fibroid as

Intramural fibroids

Are common and occur within the muscular walls

Subserosal fibroids

They form on the outside of the uterus known as serosa

Pedunculated fibroids

These tumors can develop a stem to support the tumor

Submucosal fibroids

Form in the middle muscle layer of the uterus

Risk Factors

Hormones:

During childbearing years, the female hormones estrogen and progesterone form new uterine lining with each menstrual cycle for preparing the womb for pregnancy.

As uterine fibroid contain more of these hormone receptors then the cells of normal uterine muscles do. This points to hormones be the possible cause.

Family history

A family history of fibroids increases your chances to develop fibroids.

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the production of female hormones may increase which may cause the fibroids to develop and grow rapidly.

Menopause

Women who are approaching menopause are at increased risk of fibroids due to their long term exposure to estrogen hormones.

Others

Obesity, African-American origin, lack of green vegetables in the diet, vitamin deficiency, fruit and dairy, alcohol may also make you susceptible to fibroids.

Homeopathy for Fibroids

A homeopath believes that each woman may experience the fibroids symptoms differently.

To what extent the fibroids have developed in shape size, their location help a homeopath discern the possible remedies.

Also, the remedies may differ from the one who is on medications

Your expectation of pregnancy may all alter the possible course of treatment.

This attention to detail is what makes homeopathy effective natural medicine.

Your consultation with a homeopath is necessary to decide for your case of fibroids.

Remedies start controlling your symptoms and in time help dissolve the fibroids. All this depends upon your personal analysis with a homeopath.
