Most doctors who diagnose a uterine fibroid, particularly in the USA, will pressure the woman to agree to a hysterectomy. This is regardless of the fact that nearly all fibroids are benign. The reason: it is a lucrative operation.
A hysterectomy always comes with unpleasant side-effects. Fulfilling sex goes out the window. Deep orgasms become a thing of the past, and vaginal dryness the present reality. It is emotionally traumatic, and recovery averages about a year – whatever recovery you are going to get. There is a huge increase in the risk of heart disease. Often incontinence occurs a decade or more later. If the ovaries are removed then this affects other glands. Adrenal exhaustion becomes likely, a stressed pancreas causes poor digestion, and so on. The procedure raises the risk of mood swings, ongoing fatigue, hair loss/thinning, UTI and more. If the fibroid tumours are large, it may be necessary to have them removed. But first tackle the root cause, which is usually estrogen dominance.

A tiny fibroid tumor appeared just under my eyebrow at the age of 45, seven years ago. I had been stressed and was suffering symptoms of estrogen dominance. I had several of the "symptoms of estrogen dominance in women" listed on this website. I started using a progesterone cream, which I still use on a maintenance dose. The fibroid disappeared on its own, though I it took its time and I must admit being tempted to have it cut or frozen off. I have also changed my diet over the years, eliminating grains, legumes and omega-6 oils, and am presently enjoying the best health and energy since my youth. Thanks for all the advice here.
