Fibroids Treatment at KLASS
In many cases, fibroids actually shrink and cause fewer symptoms for women who have reached menopause.
Women who are taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) during perimenopause or after menopause may not see a decrease in their symptoms. This is because HRT usually contains a combination of estrogen and progesterone, which are the same hormones that allow fibroids to grow in younger women.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyomas (lie-o-my-O-muhs) or myomas, uterine fibroids aren’t associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer.
Fibroids range in size from seedlings, undetectable by the human eye, to bulky masses that can distort and enlarge the uterus. You can have a single fibroid or multiple ones. In extreme cases, multiple fibroids can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage and can add weight.
Many women have uterine fibroids sometime during their lives. But you might not know you have uterine fibroids because they often cause no symptoms. Your doctor may discover fibroids incidentally during a pelvic exam or prenatal ultrasound.
What are some symptoms of uterine fibroids?
The symptoms caused by fibroids depend largely on the size, number and location of the fibroids. Tiny fibroids may cause no symptoms at all and may not have to be removed.
- Increase in the amount and length of bleeding with your period – this is called menorrhagia.
- Bleeding in between your cycles.
- Frequent urination.
- Painful intercourse ( dyspareunia ).
- Lower back pain.
- Painful defaecation ( dyschezia ).
- Feeling of bloating & fullness.
- Enlargement of abdomen.
- Abnormal uterine bleeding – When the tumors interfere with the blood flow to the lining of the uterus, they can cause prolonged, painful and heavy periods and women who bleed excessively may develop anemia.
