Uterine Fibroid Tumors and Their Symptoms


UterusI have had the opportunity to help† several women suffering from uterine fibroid symptoms.† These smooth masses are benign tumors that develop in the uterus (womb).†† Uterine fibroids can evolve in different sections of the uterus.† Depending on where they form they present different symptoms.

What are symptoms of uterine fibroids?

Not all fibroids cause symptoms.† It is only when they get very large or are pressing or obstructing areas that can no longer function properly is when some of the following symptoms occur:

  • Extremely heavy, painful periods
  • Irregular bleeding between periods,
  • Large clots
  • Severe pelvic pressure
  • Pressure on the bladder with frequent or even obstructed urination, and
  • Pressure on the rectum with pain during defecation.
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Constipation
  • Kidney infections or kidney issues
  • A feeling of pressure or fullness in the lower abdomen
  • An abnormally enlarged abdomen
  • May be the cause of some miscarriages

Fibroids seem to be most common during a woman’s fertile years, especially after the age of 30.† Uterine fibroids can be easily diagnosed via a pelvic exam or ultrasound.† The traditional medical treatments for symptomatic fibroids usually leads to surgery.† The most common surgeries are myomectomy, hysteroscopic resection, myolysis, and hysterectomy. Some surgeries keep the uterus while a hysterectomy removes the uterus. This can be very devastating to a women who still wants to have more children.† In addition she is placed on hormone synthetics for the rest of her life.

A procedure which does not require major surgery is called uterine artery embolization (UAE).† It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure.† Embolization blocks the flow of blood through the vessels around the fibroids depriving them of oxygen. This oxygen deprivation results in the fibroids shrinking.† A substance is injected through a catheter and lodges in the smaller arteries that branch out to the fibroids. This chokes off the fibroidís blood supply.† For more information on this procedure click on the following – Uterine Artery Embolization.

Alternative Treatments For Fibroids

It is suspected that estrogen dominance could be one of the reasons uterine fibroids develop.† Interestingly, one common need I found with all the women I worked with was the need for elevating progesterone hormone levels (for more reading on how low progesterone affects a woman’s health click HERE).† Progesterone balances out excess estrogen.† I also have noticed a pattern of high stress and in two cases excessive coffee consumption.† I have my suspicions that in some manner both these things can aggravate and contribute to the development of uterine fibroids.† An excellent herbal formula I have utilized for women with fibroids is called V-X(from Nature’s Sunshine).† This formula shrinks the fibroids and as they shrink the symptoms begin to withdraw.† Usually within 3 months significant improvement begins to occur.† The formula may need to be taken for about 5 to 6 months.

One method in how to get even quicker results from V-X is to open up 6 capsules and mix the herbs with some cocoa butter.† Create a paste and form them into suppositories.† Place the suppositories in the refrigerator and insert one suppository into the vaginal canal, twice a day.† As the cocoa butter melts the herbs are absorbed (use a panti-liner).

When the symptom of excessive menstrual bleeding occurs anemia can set in.† Chronic anemia is very dangerous along with lower blood volume.† I suggest that western medicine treatment or the alternative methods I mentioned be utilized as soon as possible when bleeding is very heavy.

    Hi Ms. Martinez,

    Thank you for the information. Quick question, what brand of Cocoa Butter do you suggest using with the paste? And does it have any side effects from being inserted into the vagina?

    I am currently working on building a plan for healing my fibroids, and I am collecting as much information as possible.

    Thanks in advance for your response!

    Dear Tina, any high quality brand, if there is an organic one the better of Cocoa butter will do. Also, coconut oil will work. Just place some in the fridge to harden so that then you can use it like a paste to form the suppositories. The suppository won’t melt 100%, but enough of the herbs will absorb in your system to be effective as you do this day after day. I hope this is helpful.

    Hello Ms. Martinez:

    Thank you for your response. Another question. How long on average, does it take to begin seeing results in decreased fibroid size? Are there any side effects?

    – Thanks
