I found out I had fibroids when I was 28 in 2018, when I was pregnant with my first child at 9 weeks. It was devasting news to us (family) my pregnancy became high dependency. I recall having pelvic pains throughout my pregnancy which caused alot of discomfort especially at night times. I was told I had 2 fibroids 1 bigger than the other.
I gave birth to my beautiful boy, and gained weight from size 10 to size 14. I have had numerous talks with GPs about options of treatments and have been told, there is no treatment that most cases the fibroids shrink on their own. I find that hard to believe as I have researched and reading some of the stories on here that some women have had treatment some had to get the treatments abroad.
In December 2019, I went for a scan and was told that the 2 fibroids are still there. One found near my womb another near my kidney, still one bigger than the other.
I still suffer from pelvic pains some days worse than others. And have recently started going back to the gym. As I found through research that in most case fibroids is caused by being overweight, which I don't think so cause I found out I had them when I was in good shape.
I will be seeing my GP soon for more options on what treatment to get.
My question is there anyone suffering from fibroids and what has been your treatment(s).
Do fibroids run in the family?
