    How many of you out there have been told that you have to have surgery to get rid of fibroids?

    Though there are no substantial guidelines that can assure prevention of uterine fibroids yet certain measures can definitely be taken to reduce the occurrence. Firstly it is very important to keep the physical weight in check, as it is one of the reasons that lead to growth of uterine fibroids. Secondly keeping stress at bay as hormonal imbalances triggers fibroids. Plenty of green vegetables and vitamin and mineral intake also reduces the chance of fibroids.

    Thanks, this was very helpful.  I had no idea that stress could be a contributing factor.  Weight isn't so much of a problem.  I could blame this on my job!  By the by, I am a teacher.  LOL!

    If you are contemplating surgery, check out all your options -- there are many including myomectomy (fibroids are removed from uterus) or fibroid embolization (less invasive).  If the fibroids are causing excessive bleeding or pain, you may have to consider some type of intervention.  Good luck.
