Uterine Fibroid

Uterine Fibroids are benign growth in the Uterus (subserous, submucous & intramural). It may occur at any age usually from menarche till menopause. Nearly 20-30 % women in reproductive age group have fibroid which is the most common cause of infertility in this population.

Exact etiology of fibroid is unknown but it is thought to be estrogen dependent. Different unnatural devices of family planning like IUCD & contraceptive pills may also increase the occurrence of Uterine Fibroids.

Profuse bleeding, pain and bleeding between menses are the most common symptoms. Frequent urination, urinary incontinence, pain during sexual intercourse, infertility and miscarriage are some other symptoms.

The treatment of Uterine Fibroid is surgical removal of growth or of the Uterus depending upon the size and number of fibroids.

We have treated umpteen number of patients having fibroid whether single or multiple, small or large, symptomatic or asymptomatic and the results are encouraging. The treatment is based on holistic principle in which both mental and physical symptoms are considered for selecting homoeopathic medicines on ‘Law of Similars’. There is no recurrence of the fibroid after constitutional treatment.

A clinical study conducted at Gaurang Clinic & Center for Homoeopathic Research, Lucknow on 630 well diagnosed cases of Uterine Fibroid in response to Homoeopathic medicines was published in the Asian Journal of Homoeopathy, Vol. 5, No. 4 (17), November 2011 – January 2012 Issue.
