Hello, I am creating this new forum to connect to anyone out there ttc with fibroids. I was first diagnosis with fibroids over two years ago (although I suspected something was up given the extremely painful and heavy cycles I've endored). As a result, I was prescribed birth control at age 17 and took it for approximately 10 years. After my diagnosis and seeing other doctors they all said one thing in common, "stop taking the birth control," as it can feed the fibroids because of the extra estrogen.
I have more than a few fibroids, the biggest one is about the size of a golf ball and it's located on the uterus wall, preventing concepton. The first doctor said, that in order to have children, I would have to have major surgeries to remove the fibroids and would never be able to have natural child birth (which was very upsetting). After doing my own reserach, I decided to try natural and less invasive procedures (diet, acupuncture, herbs, supplements).
Now after two years, we are ttc, and it's been about four months. I am taking folic acid, garlic supplements, vitamin E, and Lydia Pinkham (among other supplements but these are the consistant ones). I just wanted to hear what has worked for others out there and from others who are in similar situations. Thanks for listening and/or responding.
