What is the deal with an enlarged uterus?
My girlfriend, late twenties, said she was informed she had an enlarged uterus during her yearly gyno exam. She doesn’t have any issues, no painful periods, and didn’t ask her dr. what this means! She wants kiddies, and is concerned if this will be a problem when ready to. My grandmother had her’s removed due to the painful periods she was experiencing in her late thirties. Well, any info will greatly be appreciated so I can tactfully answer her questions until her dr./nurse gets back to her. Thanks all!
Did her doctor act concerned about it? Did they perform a ultrasound? It could be a problem but it could just be her body. In doing some research, I saw that it can be a sign of a fibroid tumor (harmless,) infection or even in some cases, early onset of menopause. I think if she is having no pain or period issues then she should be okay. If she starts noticing other symptoms, I would have her go to her gyno.
Natural ways to reduce extremely heavy menstrual bleeding?
My mother had uterine fibroid tumors, and I think I may have them, too. I am bleeding extremely heavily, enough to soak a tampon within half an hour. I have made a doctor’s appointment, but they cannot see for a month.
Are there natural ways to reduce this bleeding? HELP!

Natural ways of shrinking uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts?
Today I was diagnosed with three uterine fibroids (3 cm each) and a small ovarian cyst. I don’t want to get surgery as it could be dangerous for other organs. Are there any natural ways of shrinking them?
Fibroids are benign uterine growths. Many women have no symptoms while others experience bleeding, increased urination, bladder displacement, urine retention, constipation, infertility, miscarriage, pain during intercourse and anemia. Ovarian cysts are enlarged follicles that fail to rupture and release an egg. Women may experience general pain, disrupted periods, pain in the back and abdomen and painful intercourse. Both of these conditions are caused by imbalances in estrogen production. There are many natural treatments to deal with both of these conditions. Talk to your doctor about any natural supplements you are using.
Herbal Treatments for Fibroids
Herbal treatments that address bleeding often work quite quickly, but supplements that control hormone levels take about three months of use before bringing about noticeable results.
Black cohosh controls bleeding and relieves pain; take 500 milligrams daily. Cinnamon oil has a long history of use in traditional American medicine to control bleeding fibroids. Use 10-to-15 drops every 15 minutes until the bleeding stops. Dan shen, which should only be used under professional supervision, treats congealed blood, dark red clots during menstruation, and relieves pelvic congestion. Reishi tincture alleviates pelvic inflammation. Take one tablespoon in ¼ cup of water three times daily.
There are three traditional Chinese formulas that are commonly used to treat uterine fibroids. Take as directed on the product label.
Augmented Rambling powder lowers estrogen levels and is most useful for women who are also suffering from painful or difficult urination. Cinnamon Twig and Poria Pill lowers estrogen levels without interfering with the menstrual cycle or causing weight gain. Four Substance Decoction treats fibroids and is especially useful for women who eat a poor diet.
Herbal Treatments for Ovarian Cysts
Dioscorea tincture, also known as wild yam, alleviates cramping caused by ovarian cysts. Take as directed on the label. Dong quai relieves pain resulting from this condition. Take 1,000 milligrams daily during the two-week period after menstruation and then discontinue for two weeks.
There are several Chinese formulas used to treat ovarian cysts. Use as directed on the product label.
Dong Quai and Peony Powder reduces estrogen levels and the formation of inflammatory substances in the tissues that line the uterus. Two Cured Decoction reduces estrogen levels. Augmented Rambling Powder and Cinnamon Twig and Poria pill, which are listed above, can also be used for ovarian cysts
Estrogen is produced from body fat. Excess weight increases the amount of estrogen in the body, so make an effort to maintain a normal weight. Do your best to exercise regularly and reduce stress levels. Avoid the following herbs that stimulate estrogen production: Coleus, Cordyceps, fennel seed, licorice, and moutan.

Is there a way to prevent or reduce the growth of fibroids?
I understand that fibroids are common and once developed, it really doesn’t go away. But is there a way to prevent getting any more of them or having them grow larger? Is there a certain diet or lifestyle that can be contributed to them?
I thought I read somewhere that although it is not a certain cause, fibroids seem to occur often in women who experience weight gain.
Fibroids develop from abnormal cell growth in the uterus (womb). The exact cause of these benign tumors is not known. However, both genetic and environmental conditions have been identified as contributing risk factors for fibroids. A number of factors may increase a woman’s likelihood of developing uterine fibroids. These include:
Age. Although they can occur at any age after puberty, fibroids most frequently appear in women aged 30 to 40 years old. In addition, early age at menarche, especially before age 10, is considered a risk factor for the condition later in life.
Genetics and heredity. Research indicates that many fibroids contain alterations in genes that code for uterine muscle cells. Women who have a mother or sister with fibroids appear to be at increased risk of developing them.
Ethnicity. Fibroids tend to appear more frequently among black women than Caucasians. Also, black women tend to develop fibroids at younger ages, and also typically experience numerous and/or larger fibroids.
Hormonal changes. Research indicates that the hormones estrogen and progesterone appear to influence the growth of uterine fibroids. When a woman with uterine fibroids experiences hormonal changes during pregnancy, the fibroids typically enlarge. However, after childbirth the fibroids tend to shrink back to the original size. In addition, when women stop menstruating (menopause), uterine fibroids usually shrink or disappear altogether. Other studies indicate that hormones that help the body maintain tissues, such as the insulin-like growth factor, may also affect fibroid growth.
High-fat diet and alcohol consumption. Significant consumption of red meats (e.g., beef, ham) and alcoholic beverages, especially beer, is associated with an increased risk of developing fibroids in the uterus.
Obesity. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater appears to increase a woman’s risk of developing these benign tumors of the uterus.
There’s really a lot of great information on fibroids – their prevention, treatment, signs and symptoms at the women’s site below. Take a look – I’m sure you’ll find it helpful!
Who has been diagnosed with an enlarged uterus?
Ok, I got a late start in life, finally met the man of my dreams at 40 and have been told because of fibroid tumors, my uterus is enlarged and although I could get pregnant, it will be a nightmare. Anyone had this and had a health baby??
Well, the reason that they said it would be a nightmare, is because when fibroids are present in the uterus, it takes up room and therefore the baby has issues because it has high chances of having to be delivered prematurely depending on how many and how large your fibroids are. Many women do end up having healthy babies with uterine fibroids, it just isn’t the easiest pregnancy and birth. I would just discuss the risks with your doctor, and if you decide you do want to get pregnant, then what your plan of care would be with your doctor. Here is a website that offers some really good info on pregnancy and fibroids http://www.pregnancy-info.net/fibroids.html Good Luck!
