Non Surgical Treatment For Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are tumours that grow in a woman's womb (uterus). These growths are not cancerous. They can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, bleeding between periods, painful periods, painful intercourse, fullness in lower belly or an urge to urinate more often.

Traditionally, fibroids were treated surgically - either total removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) or removal of the fibroid alone (myomectomy). But due to advances in technology, many non-surgical techniques are available to treat fibroids.
