I am a married woman, 30 years old. I have a daughter aged 7 yrs. We are not interested in having another kid. My normal cycle goes with clots, spasmodic pain which is not progressive. In 2000, I started getting pain in my lower abdomen without fever or vomiting. The pain subsides after taking analgesics or taking rest for few hours. Ultrasonography(USG) of uterus in 2002 showed a fibroid mass of 10x8mm in the myometrium of posterior wall. After taking ciprofloxacin for 5 days I left it untreated. Again an USG of pelvis in July 2004 showed the intramural fibroid mass of size 36x27 mm. The Gynaeologist told me the size of the mass will increase until menopause and the pain in lower abdomen is not due to it. My urine report showed growth for staphylococcus sensitive to Amikacin and other antibiotics. I want to know if the pain is due to the increasing fibroid mass? What problem will it create in future? Whether it will be required to remove the uterus in future as a result of the firboid mass?

The pain could be related to the mass, or bleeding from the fibroid.

Hysterectomy is often recommended for fibroids, but there are other options if you would prefer not to undergo such a drastic surgery. Unfortunately, the average gynecologist isn't given a lot of training in med school in restorative medicine.

Natural Procreative Technology is a medical specialty that focuses on doing everything possible to investigate and heal reproductive problems, including fibroids. Don't let the name throw you, they do help a lot of couples hoping to conceive...but their doctors will treat any reproductive problem even if you aren't TTC. My sister hemorrhaged for years due to a fibroid, told at 24 that her only option was a hysterectomy. She saw a NaPro doctor and only needed medication for 2 months. The fibroid shriveled up and hasn't been an issue since. A second opinion on your treatment options never hurts!
