What are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are grown inside or on the uterine. There are not cancerous cells. They can grow on the inside of the uterus, outer surface of the uterus or within the muscle wall of a uterus. They can change the shape of a womb when they are growing. This leads hard to get pregnant.The size, location, shape, and symptoms are changed over time. As women are getting older, they are more likely to have fibroids. Most have mild or no symptoms. But they cause severe pain, heavy bleeding and other problems.The cause of the fibroids is unknown but the estrogen and progesterone can make them grow. A woman’s body makes the high levels of these hormones during pregnancy time. After menopause, when hormone levels are decreased, the fibroids will shrink or disappear.
FIBROIDS AND INFERTILITY
Fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) growths in the uterus (womb). They are a common cause of infertility, miscarriage and pre-term labor.
Fibroids are very common. At least 1 in 4 women develop one or more fibroids in their lifetime. They usually develop in women aged 30-50 years and can sometimes run in families. This is thought to be due to the higher levels of estrogen that occur in heavier women.
Symptoms may include:
Miscarriage or infertility (depending on the size and position of the fibroid) Problems during pregnancy (early labour, risk of having a caesarean section)
Diagnosis Some fibroids can be felt on examining the abdomen if very large. An ultrasound scan is done to confirm the diagnosis
Treatment for Fibroids
If your fibroids are not causing any symptoms then treatment is not usually needed. After the menopause, fibroids often shrink and symptoms tend to go or ease.
2. Treatment with medication
Medication can be used to improve symptoms or to shrink the fibroids. Normally fibroids more than 3cms in size cause symptoms and need treatment.
A) Medication to improve symptoms
The following medicines are used to treat heavy periods whatever the cause, including heavy menstrual cycle caused by fibroids. They may not work so well if your fibroids are large.
Tranexamic acid- reduces bleeding during the period.
The contraceptive pill may help you to have lighter periods and can often help with period pain too.
B) Medication to shrink the fibroids
Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue, this is a hormone medicine that reduces the level of estrogen in your body. Fibroids shrink when the level of estrogen falls. This treatment is given for a maximum three to six months.
For patients with fibroids larger than 3cms Laparoscopic Myomectomy is the best way forward Hysterectomy is commonest treatment for large fibroids which cause symptoms. It is a surgical removal of uterus, or womb. Uterine artery embolization (UAE)reduces the symptoms of fibroids but it is not suggested to people who wish to have children.
Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is a surgical removal for uterine fibroids.
There are 4 types of fibroids. They are:
1. Intramural: This is the most common type which is embedded in the womb’s muscular wall.
2. Subserosal Fibroids: These extend beyond the womb’s wall and grow within the surrounding outer uterine tissue layer.
3. Submucosal Fibroids: This type of fibroids can push into the cavity of the womb which is found in the muscle beneath the inner line of the wall.
4. Cervical Fibroids: Cervical fibroids presented in the neck of the womb known as the cervix.
What Causes Fibroids?
There is not an exact reason for fibroids causes. They may relate to estrogen levels.
The estrogen and progesterone levels are very high during the reproductive years.
Fibroids will swell when the estrogen levels are high in pregnancy time. They are developing when a woman is taking birth control pill which contains estrogen.
Low levels of estrogen can cause fibroids to shrink during and after menopause.
Genetic factors are also a cause of the development of fibroids.
Red meat, caffeine, and alcohol can increase the risks of fibroids. Fruits and vegetable can reduce the risk of fibroids.
Obesity and overweight can cause risk of fibroids.
Childbearing can lower the risk of fibroids. The risk is reduced when a woman gives birth.
Fibroids didn’t show the symptoms, they are diagnosed during pelvic examinations. The following are some tests that diagnose fibroids.
A doctor will scan over the abdomen or by inserting a small ultrasound probe into the vagina to create ultrasound images.
An MRI scan will determine the size and quantity of fibroids.
It is diagnosed by hysteroscopy. A small device with a camera to examine the inside of a womb through the cervix. At that time, the doctor can take a biopsy to identify the cancerous cells in the area.
Laparoscopy is also performed to diagnose fibroids. In laparoscopic, the doctor will insert a small tube with a lightened camera in the abdomen to examine the outside of the womb and its surrounding structures. The biopsy will also perform if it is necessary.
Menorrhagia: It is also called heavy periods. This can prevent a woman from functioning during periods, leading to anemia, depression, and fatigue.
Abdominal Pain: If fibroids are small, medium and large, the discomfort will occur in the lower abdomen. They will also cause constipation with painful bowel movements.
Infertility: In some case, fibroids can make it harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the lining of a womb. A submucosal fibroid will grow inside the uterine cavity may change the shape of the womb and making conception more difficult.
Pregnancy Problems: labor problems, preterm birth, and miscarriages will occur when estrogen levels are increased during pregnancy.
Leiomyosarcoma: This is a rare form of cancer which is developed inside a fibroid in very rare cases.
