Uterine Fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) growth in the uterus (subserosal, submucosal & 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.
Exact etiology of fibroid is unknown but it is thought to be estrogen dependent. Different unnatural devices of family planning like Intra Uterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD) and 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.
We have treated umpteen number of patients having fibroid whether single or multiple, small or large, symptomatic or asymptomatic and the results are encouraging. Treatment is based on both mental and physical symptoms which are considered for selecting homoeopathic medicines on holistic principle. Chances of recurrence are grim with holistic constitutional treatment.
