Re: do fibroids shrink

Since their growth is fueled mainly by estrogen, as you pass menopause they should shrink (provided you are not taking estrogen-type hormones.)

Re: do fibroids shrink

mine did after menopause. I was advised to have a hysterectomy but opted out. I had 3 fibroids. 2 were completely gone and the 3rd one shrunk to just a tiny one that didn't bother me.
