What are the signs of Fibroid shrinking

sign of Fibroid shrinking

Uterine fibroids are painless lumps in 50% of females approaching menopausal age. They are non-cancerous growths. They vary in size. The common symptoms are heavy periods, fatigue, pain and anaemia.

Fibroid shrinking or Fibroid degeneration occurs when fibroids grow to the extent that they are devoid of any blood supply and start to break down.

What are the common signs of Fibroid shrinking?

An expert can help you with the accurate diagnosis of your fibroids. Fibroids are not life-threatening and cause mild discomfort during cycles. However, a degenerating fibroid can be troublesome.

You may experience the following symptoms:

  • 1. Severe pain in the pelvic region. This pain can last from a few days to a few weeks.
  • 2. Discomfort while walking
  • 3. Excessive bleeding
  • 4. Exert pressure on the bladder and cause frequent urination

Changes in these symptoms are seen as the fibroids degenerate into small fragments and regain the blood supply. The fibroids began to grow again. As soon as it happens, the pain gets sub-sided. But these fibroids grow back, and you can feel all those symptoms again. This cycle necessitates the need for treatment.

How to prevent fibroid degeneration?

The most effective way to prevent fibroid degeneration is to treat them when they are small. As they tend to reoccur, regular scans are highly recommended.
Healthy lifestyle changes also help to prevent the formation of fibroids. Dietary changes play an active role in improving the symptoms of fibroids. Include this food in your diet:

  • High fibre content: Food items such as broccoli, carrot, oranges, and papaya have high fibre content that removes excess estrogen and controls the metabolic rate.
  • Whole grains: Buckwheat, Oats, and Millets are excellent sources of soluble fibre.
  • Green leafy vegetables are excellent sources of Vitamin K which reduces menstrual bleeding.
  • Food rich in antioxidants like blueberries, raspberries and eggplants also helps.

I have made all the pregnancy visits to Dr. Amita Shah, and my end-to-end experience with her has been wonderful. I was someone who was absolutely terrified of needles, but with Dr. Amita Shah's constant guidance and good consultation, I could overcome a lot of my stress and worries related to delivery as well as during the pregnancy phase. Both the doctor and her clinic staff are helpful and amiable. She was all ears when it came to even the tiniest of details and issues, listened calmly and resolved all my issues. She was also constantly available via phone and WhatsApp to clear any doubts that popped up in my head in addition to the in-clinic visits where she eased my mind and resolved plenty of my concerns. At the time of my delivery, she offered complete mental support and her presence itself offered calmness to me. I highly recommend Dr. Amita Shah for her professionalism, empathy and supportive attitude. By God's grace, we are blessed with a baby girl in December, and I have been on the path to a smooth and fast recovery since then.
