Re: what can I do about my stomach swelling due to fibroids on my uterus

Have you visited your doctor? Do you know how large your fibroid(s) are? Your doctor should offer several options for treatment. Some of your options depend upon your age, the size of the fibroid(s), your desire to have children in the future, etc.

Re: what can I do about my stomach swelling due to fibroids on my uterus

If they are that large that they are responsbile for your stomach swelling then usually they would remove the fibroid/s.

Have you had your hormones checked as fibroids love an excess estrogen environment. I'm seeing a naturopath who has helped regulate my menstrual cycles and she is also using herbs to reduce my fibroid. I only have one fibroid and it's 17mm in size, but large enough to cause issues. The herbs appear to be helping as i've not got the particular pains i was having before.

See your doctor about the fibroid/s, but also find out what your estrogen/progestrone levels are doing. You don't want fibroids reoccuring again at a later stage.
