We are in a fibroids crisis, and they are being treated by many medical practitioners as though they are the equivalent to a headache. Watch and wait. “If they aren’t bothering you, you don’t need to do anything about them” is a common phrase uttered in exam rooms. It dismisses the fact that fibroids can, and very often grow to sizes that can disrupt plans for having a family.
It is not as well known that fibroids have been responsible for infertility, miscarriage, and forced emergency Cesarean deliveries. For many women with fibroids, the journey towards motherhood can be challenging and often filled with heartache and loss.
The leaders in raising fibroid awareness are aiming to provide access to the most up-to-date information about treating these tumors. From legislation, to support forums, to fertility coaching, women with fibroids trying to get pregnant can now find experienced, state-of-the-art options that weren’t available when their mothers struggled.
