Sorry to see your post, assuming either you or someone close to you.

I was looking around a little bit for options - I've not researched this one and there are other approaches, likely. I was thinking about some kind of intrauterine light blast -- just came to mind, don't know if it even exists. From the Livestrong website this one sounds interesting:

Have a focused ultrasound procedure. This procedure uses an MRI scanner to allow the doctor to visualize your anatomy while using high-frequency sounds waves to destroy the uterine fibroids.

Thanks Keebler!

I actually saw that procedure too and it seems to be new around me. I definitely like the idea of non-invasive.

I've been trying to do a search to find someone around me that does it. Haven't had much luck though.

Try taking Myomin, Dr Chi Herbs, start a loading dose, 2 3x day, then decrease to 2 2x day after a week, best stuff in the world and does all kinds of hormone modulation. I am post memo, no hormone supplementation because Myomin takes care of it all. Google Myomin, great balancer!😇

I had uterine fibroids - which together with Lyme made for some super painful menstrual cycles. My doctor discovered I had very low progesterone levels. I've been taking progesterone from a compounded pharmacy for a couple of years now and no more fibroids apparently.

I also take herbs Nettle and Vitex (Chaste tree berry) & red raspberry tea which have helped me. My OBGYN said that sometimes uterine fibroids will just go away on their own. It's largely hormone related and can be influenced by genetics and diet.

All the best to you and hope you find relief.

Dal123 - great advice on Myomin! Myomin is excellent for estrogen dominant conditions.

Dal123 - I will look into Myomin, I've never heard of it.

Blymey919 - I'm glad you are feeling better! I'll look into the herbs as well.


Thank you for your responses!
