Stop Fibroids Bleeding
Fibroids are not always troublesome but in those cases where discomfort is an everyday burden life can become not only difficult but also embarrassing. Symptoms can range from heavy, prolonged bleeding which follows menstruation, anaemia, lower back pain, weight gain, pain during intercourse and increased fatigue.
When the symptoms experienced become too much to bear many women go through depression as treatment after treatment fails to work. But research has shown that there is a range of natural products that can stop fibroids from bleeding. Such natural cures consist of healthy food options and the intake of organic fruit and vegetables accompanied by regular exercise. Certain foods are known to minimise and even stop fibroid bleeding such as greens, beans seeds and wholegrain. Foods that contain vitamins such as A, C and E and Folic Acid can also help reduce bleeding but generally take time before they prove to be effective.
Once a healthy diet is adopted it is crucial that it is maintained but it will take time before any noticeable results make themselves apparent. Other methods that can be used to help ease some of the more uncomfortable symptoms than come with fibroids and bleeding are the use of heat pads placed on the pelvic area and anti inflammatories such as Ibuprofen.
In addition, a relatively new treatment called uterine fibroid embolization is also an option and a preferred method of treatment as an alternative to a hysterectomy. UFE is a relatively simple procedure where a catheter is inserted into the groin and guided by xray to the fibroid area. Microsphere are then injected into the fibroid causing them to shrink and stop growing by blocking the blood vessels which provide the fibroids with both blood and oxygen.
