Some common treatments for uterine fibroids include medication, minimally invasive procedures, and surgery. Your doctor can help you determine the best treatment option for you based on your specific situation. It is important to talk to your doctor about all of your options and the potential risks and benefits of each.
Your gynecologist will consider many factors before recommending a treatment for your fibroids, including: your age, general health, severity of your symptoms, where your fibroids are located, the type and size of your fibroids, and whether you are pregnant now or want to get pregnant in the future.
If you have uterine fibroids but have no symptoms or problems, you may not need treatment. If you are close to menopause, your health care provider may find that your fibroids are shrinking, which is common during and after menopause.
