Uterine Fibroids Part 3: The Silent Treatment

Posted on

If Uterine Fibroids are so common, why the silent treatment? What’s the big secret? I’d much rather reveal those embarrassing symptoms than live in this constant pain!


It’s possible that I never heard of Uterine Fibroids because nobody is talking about it… And if they are, it’s a full on whisper. I put a follow-up appointment on hold for months, literally. But the pain of it all won’t let me put it off another day. That 2nd opinion came with a specialist referral. The invasive peek will reveal the diagnosis to be true or false… Uterine fibroids! All the symptoms have been at play for over a year.
•heavy bleeding between or during your periods that includes blood clots… Longer/heavier cycles!!
•pain in the pelvis and/or lower back… Pain, pain, and more pain, without warning!!
•increased menstrual cramping… PAIN!!
•increased urination… Frequent peeing all day AND all night!!
•pain during intercourse… Did I mention the PAIN?!?!
•menstruation that lasts longer than usual… What used to be 3 days has become a full week!!! Groan.
•pressure or fullness in your lower abdomen… Feeling fat and less than fabulous. Anybody notice my fitness kick? Hmmm.
•swelling or enlargement of the abdomen… Not only do I feel pregnant… I look it too!

Enough is enough. I’m ready for the next follow-up. It’s time to take back my life! Beast mode… Grrr!

    You’re not alone. There are estimated to be over a million women, labeled as the silent sufferers. They go silent after being told by their OBGYNs that hysterectomy is the only option for treating their fibroids. Most women don’t want surgery or removal of their uterus. Fortunately, there are more options starting with UFE- uterine fibroid embolization, which is minimally invasive and you go home the same day.
