If you think you’re experiencing symptoms because of fibroids, it’s important to visit your doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Your doctor conducts a physical exam, ultrasound, or lab tests to conclude whether you have fibroids and if they’re affecting your physical health.
Your doctor might recommend certain medications to manage your symptoms and hormone levels, including hormonal birth control or further surgical and non-surgical procedures to remove the fibroids. These include:
- MRI-guided focused ultrasound surgery (FUS)
- Uterine artery embolization
- Abdominal myomectomy
- Laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy
- Endometrial ablation
- Minimally Invasive Hysteroscopic Myomectomy
There are many solutions for fibroids that have varying results and recovery times. When you talk to your doctor about the best treatment for your fibroids, be sure to mention any preferences you have around surgical versus non-surgical procedures.
