A treatment for each case
Having fibroids (a condition also known as myomatosis) does not necessarily mean that you have to undergo a procedure to eliminate them. Sometimes a hormonal treatment is enough to control their symptoms.
Their removal is necessary when they are large, are located in places where they can cause problems (for instance, if they are impeding the passage of sperm and are therefore hindering the possibility of getting pregnant), or when they are causing pain, pressure, abnormal bleeding, or other bothersome symptoms that deteriorate your life quality.
The case of each woman is unique, both because of the characteristics of each woman’s fibroids and her health condition, in addition to her personal preferences/expectations and her socioeconomic situation. For this reason, our Integral Fibroid Management Network offers you all the choices of treatment available while defining along with you and your treating physician which one is the best indicated for you. Our purpose is providing you all the solutions in a single point.
