How were your fibroids diagnosed and what treatment did you have?

I had an ultrasound scan today and I had lots of things ? In my uterus,
I asked if they were fibroids as my mum had them and I have similar symtoms.
She said she couldn't tell by the ultrasound scan and my Gp would get the results within the week.

So what tests if any am I likely to have next.?
I have had pain near my right hip in my stomach for months and I can feel something there, but she didn't scan that part if my stomach just my uterous and ovaries which she said looked clear.

Hi, I am actually having a Fibroid removed on Thursday. First off I went to my GP who did a smear, then I went on to have an Ultrasound and also something like a 'wand' put into my Uterus to have a look around. Then I got an appointment with a Gynae who performed another internal with a camera (which really bloody hurt!) and it was decided I needed the Fibroid out under General, but with no incisions.
I'm pleased and just looking forward to no more 5 week periods, heavy periods, severe period pains, bloating, kicking, etc.

Hope this helps. xxx
