Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyomas 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.
Symptoms of estrogen dominance include weight gain, water retention, headaches, depression, anxiety, irritability, short-term-memory and concentration problems. Other common symptoms of estrogen dominance in women still having a menstrual cycle include: heavy bleeding, spotting, and PMS.
The Good News
The good thing about uterine fibroids is that it isn’t a disease. Rather, it is simply fibrous tissue found in the uterus. Uterine fibroids is commonly a symptom of “estrogen dominance,” a condition where you do not make enough progesterone to balance the estrogen that you make. Estrogen is a potent growth hormone and if it is not balanced with enough progesterone it can cause overgrowth of different tissues.
In the end, this is a fairly common problem with a fairly simple solution. However, the first step is always to check with your doctor to make sure that it is nothing more than fibroids. We offer natural, bio-identical, hormones to help balance between the progesterone and estrogen that your body naturally makes.
Progesterone has been shown to work along with the estrogen you make to lower your risk of heart attacks and osteoporosis. Progesterone also decreases the risk of any cancer that can be “turned on” by estrogen.
The feedback that we have received from doctors and patients over the years is that the uterine fibroids are typically gone, or significantly decreased in size in about six months after beginning treatment with Progesterone to balance your estrogen.
If you’re ready to do something about your uterine fibroids, the fastest and easiest way is to get a prescription for natural, bio-identical progesterone. Fill out the Women's Wellness Questionnaire below and take the first step toward relief.
