How Are Fibroids Diagnosed and Treated- Viewtown, Virginia
(text on screen): Fertility Authority. Your Most Trusted Source Ask the Experts How are fibroids diagnosed and treated? Jenna McCarthy, South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine: Most of the time, fibroids are initially diagnosed on ultrasound. And then they can be definitively diagnosed from a fertility standpoint by either a saline infusion sonogram, or an HSG. If the fibroid is well away from the cavity, and it's not changing the shape of the cavity at all, and it's not causing you any other symptoms, there's no reason you need to have it taken out. So, s typically will recommend that you have the fibroid taken out if it's changing the shape of the cavity,.
Or if it's causing some of the other symptoms. Fibroids are typically removed one of two ways. You can either have them removed by having a surgery, either laparoscopically or an open surgery where they make an incision in the belly, and have the fibroids removed. Alternatively, fibroids that are completely within the cavity can sometimes be removed vaginally. It depends on where the fibroid is. So, let's start with a large fibroid that's large enough that it's changing the shape of the cavity. That type of fibroid might be removed laparoscopically, which is a couple of small incisions on the belly, nothing big. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, which means that you can go home the same day,.
Sleep in your own bed, take your pain medicines yourself, instead of having to be in the . The healing time from that is typically two to six weeks, depending on the woman and how active she is. And then we usually ask you to wait three months before trying to get pregnant. Some s will err on the side of caution and say as much as six months before trying to get pregnant. And then, typically, if the fibroid that was removed was large enough that we actually went all the way through the wall of the uterus to take it out, we'll recommend a csection for delivery, to help prevent the chance that the scar that's left in its place doesn't pop open during labor. The other way to remove fibroids is hysteroscopically, or vaginally. Those are fibroids that are completely within the cavity.
So, basically, they can put a little camera inside the uterus and look around; you can see the whole fibroid. Those, the recovery time is even faster. The surgery itself, again, is outpatient. You go home the same day. The pain is much, much less associated with it. Most women are back to work within a week to two weeks. Some women don't even need that much time. And we usually don't ask you to wait more than one normal period before you try and get pregnant. And neither of the two surgeries make it so that you can or cannot have fertility treatments. Some gynecologists are extremely skilled at removing fibroids. Other gynecologists prefer to refer those patients to either a reproductive endocrinologist or a minimally invasive surgeon.
The advantage to doing that is most REs and minimally invasive surgeons are trained in doing laparoscopic myomectomies. The difference between a laparoscopic myomectomy and an abdominal myomectomy is the recovery time. With a laparoscopic, most women, really, are up and around and doing for themselves in about two weeks. It may be six weeks before they feel 100 percent, but they're usually at 80 percent or better by two weeks. With an abdominal myomectomy, you've actually gone through the big muscles of the abdominal wall, so, just like a csection or any other major abdominal surgery, it takes you that full six to eight weeks to feel like yourself again. 0:03:12.000,0:03:14.000 (text on screen): Fertility Authority.

Adrenal Fatigue Causing Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids is a very, very common condition that affects many females. Unbeknown to most, this process of fibroid formation actually takes years. In some women it grows fast, in some women it does not grow at all, and in some women it never happens. This is Lam, founder of DrLam , and we are going to go through in this tutorial what the physiology behind fibroids is all about. First, let's take a step back. In order for the fibroid to grow, which is a tumor which is benign, is made of fibrous tissues, the body has to activate many mechanisms to grow the fibroids. It starts off very small, like a pea size, and it grows to be as big as sometimes.
An orange or a grapefruit in extreme cases. The common denominator for growing a fibroid is the hormone called estrogen. So if you have excessive estrogen in the body either from absolute basis; such as you are taking too much estrogen from birth control pills or food that contains estrogen; on the relative basis such as when you don't have enough progesterone to offset the estrogen; or even if you have receptor sites that are very sensitive, and this is very common in people who are skinny and thin; all these can lead to estrogen dominance. On top of that estrogen, because it can mate in the adipose tissue, so if you have a lot of fat tissues, or if you have stress in the adrenal system, they all contribute to estrogen.
Excess. Now estrogen excess will in turn then drive the body into a state of estrogen dominance with symptoms that include fibrocystic breast disease, endometriosis, irregular periods, heavy periods, a lot of ovulation pain, and fibroids. In extreme cases, it can be tied into cancer as well. So, fibroids, even though it is a benign tumor, tells the body that it has the underlying problem of estrogen imbalance. Now, aggressive measures to get rid of the fibroids is necessary if they are structural problems, but there are also natural ways to help the fibroids shrink, especially for.
Those that are nearing menopause. Understanding and recognizing that when the body is in adrenal fatigue the tendency to have a high estrogen load is critical because if you don't understand this concept, estrogen dominance can be treated as if it is a separate entity of excessive estrogen and women can be told to do what we call hysterectomy to get rid of the fibroid. Now oftentimes this can be useful, but oftentimes as well if the ultimate source of estrogen is not shut off or slowed down, even if you get rid of the ovarian estrogen source you still have estrogen source from food, the environment, the stress, as well as the adrenal disfunction then you are really not getting rid of the total problem at the root level.
So it is important to recognize fibroids number one as a medical issue, but number two also as an associated symptom for us to be on the alert when we dealing with adrenal fatigue because we do see many women who have fibroids with their adrenal fatigue; and in fact it is very interesting because the estrogen load starts going down when the adrenals heal and then many people do report less symptoms of estrogen dominance; including fibroids stop growing, or start to shrink as the adrenal improve. So using this understanding to help us to understand fibroid physiology and association with adrenal fatigue is very important. Now I have an article on my website called 'Estrogen.
Dominance' as well as another one called 'Progesterone' that will be useful for you. If you are inquisitive I have a book called 'Estrogen Dominance' that you can read as well, and of course my main book called 'Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome' goes into this in great detail.
