Fibroids ~ Diet and Exercise

(1 Post)

Just had it confirmed that I definitely have several fibroids which explains the heavy/painful periods.

Had a brief discussion with the GP today and was given some reading with the various options to think about.

My first reaction is that I would rather avoid any surgery. I'm already using tranexamic acid and hoping I can manage symptoms with this and ibuprofen.

The reading I was given says that fibroids are more common in women weighing over 11 stone, so just wondering if anyone has see any improvements by changes to either diet or exercises.
