    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi Jessica. Are your fibroids causing any problems such as heavy bleeding or bladder issues? If not or the problems are minor, you may want to just watch and wait. If bleeding is a problem, there are hormonal and non-hormonal meds to reduce the bleeding. If you want to go the surgical route, small fibroids can be removed via hysteroscopy and large ones via myomectomy if you have a surgeon with the right skills. This would allow you to keep your uterus and its lifelong non-reproductive functions (anatomical, skeletal, hormonal, sexual).
