Cystic / Uterine Fibroids 

I have discovered that I have uterine fibroids. Just what are uterine fibroids? Uterine fibroids are benign growths that are stimulated by estrogen. They can cause pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, anaemia and bladder problems. It can be confusing to diagnose; at first, because symptoms are so similar to that of periomenopause. Funny enough, this explains much of what I’ve been experiencing. 
Fibroids can shrink, and you can improve the situation with plenty of exercise; however, in advance cases surgical removal is the best solution.
The cause of these fibroids/tumours/or cysts is unknown; however, what is alarming is the range of size. The range in size can be from 1 mm to more than 20 cm in diameter. Facing a possible hysterectomy is an invasive thought (and procedure)!  

I don’t want to get ahead of myself; I should wait to see my doctor so that we can discuss the results of my ultrasound. So far all I know is that I have many of these “cysts”.

Here’s a recipe that I came across online. It may help with some symptoms … or not!

Longevity Drink:

(You can make up a batch and freeze in ice cube trays. To use: take one cube and use in warm water twice daily)

7 lemons

4 cups turmeric root

4 habanero peppers

  1. I found out I had these the hard way, 22 yrs ago!! My first pregnancy was what caused them to balloon up… (The more blood to the uterus the bigger they get)I was literally puking up blood and they thought it was something else, opened me up, told me what they were but none were ever removed as it would have caused a miscarriage. Two years later I was pregnant again and just dealt with them as best as I could. Mine got so big they’d put the uterus forward so they actually thought at first I was further along then I actually way (the ultrascan and the head measurement set them straight) as well they at first thought I was having twins!! After my second was born I got fixed but my fibroids are all very small ones and even though they can crystalize them, there was just too many to do

  2. I am thinking of you through this time. I hope you’re not in pain, I know sometimes there is abdominal discomfort. Will keep you in my prayers that surgery won’t be necessary. (((HUGS)))
