Treating Uterine Fibroids With Birth Control Pills
Welcome back lovely ladies today we are going to figure out fibroids. figure out fibroids figure out fibroids It’s like a tongue twister! say that three times fast. anyway, fibroids are something that you may never have to face because it generally tends to affect women.
Age 30 or more however it is interesting to note that 25 percent women will probably suffer from fibroids at one point in their life but I’ll never have symptoms and they’ll never need treatment so what the heck are fibroids? Fibroids are noncancerous growths in the muscle walls in your uterus. Studies show that that being overweight or having high blood pressure are major risk factors. Fibroids tend to shrink.
When your body goes through menopause. so, what causes fibroids? unknown. I know, sorry to disappoint you. the thing is is that the growth depends on the estrogen levels in the body and as the woman continues to menstruate and the sizes can vary they can be so small that you need a microscope to look at them or they can be really big;.
As big as the uterus. now if you do have symptoms, some of them may include pelvic cramping when you’re not on your period, lower abdomen pain, lower back pain, painful sex, and increased urine frequency. the will do an ultrasound to check for all of this. Now some treatment options generally include getting on birth control pills.
Or an iud (intrauterine device) to help regulate the estrogen, and if it really really really comes down to it surgery is also an option. Again, all this varies on your diagnosis and the severity of your problems. Always remember to go to a to get checked out So that’s all I have for you today, you know the drill so shoot me an email, send me.
Adrenal Fatigue Causing Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids is a very, very common condition that affects many females. unbeknown to most, this process of fibroid formation actually takes years. In some women it grows fast, in some women it does not grow at all, and in some women it never happens. This is Lam, founder of DrLam , and we are going to go through in this tutorial what the physiology behind fibroids is all about. First, let’s take a step back. In order for the fibroid to grow, which is a tumor which.
Is benign, is made of fibrous tissues, the body has to activate many mechanisms to grow the fibroids. It starts off very small, like a pea size, and it grows to be as big as sometimes an orange or a grapefruit in extreme cases. The common denominator for growing a fibroid is the hormone called estrogen. So if you have excessive estrogen in the body either from absolute basis; such as you are taking too much estrogen from birth control pills or food that contains estrogen; on the relative basis such as when you don’t have enough progesterone.
To offset the estrogen; or even if you have receptor sites that are very sensitive, and this is very common in people who are skinny and thin; all these can lead to estrogen dominance. On top of that estrogen, because it can mate in the adipose tissue, so if you have a lot of fat tissues, or if you have stress in the adrenal system, they all contribute to estrogen excess. Now estrogen excess will in turn then drive the body into a state of estrogen dominance.
With symptoms that include fibrocystic breast disease, endometriosis, irregular periods, heavy periods, a lot of ovulation pain, and fibroids. In extreme cases, it can be tied into cancer as well. So, fibroids, even though it is a benign tumor, tells the body that it has the underlying problem of estrogen imbalance. Now, aggressive measures to get rid of the fibroids is necessary if they are structural problems, but there are also natural ways to help the fibroids shrink, especially for.
Those that are nearing menopause. understanding and recognizing that when the body is in adrenal fatigue the tendency to have a high estrogen load is critical because if you don’t understand this concept, estrogen dominance can be treated as if it is a separate entity of excessive estrogen and women can be told to do what we call hysterectomy to get rid of the fibroid. Now oftentimes this can be useful, but oftentimes as well if the ultimate source of estrogen is not shut off or slowed down, even if you get rid of the ovarian estrogen source you.
Still have estrogen source from food, the environment, the stress, as well as the adrenal disfunction then you are really not getting rid of the total problem at the root level. So it is important to recognize fibroids number one as a medical issue, but number two also as an associated symptom for us to be on the alert when we dealing with adrenal fatigue because we do see many women who have fibroids with their adrenal fatigue; and in fact it is very interesting because the estrogen load starts going down when the adrenals heal and.
Then many people do report less symptoms of estrogen dominance; including fibroids stop growing, or start to shrink as the adrenal improve. So using this understanding to help us to understand fibroid physiology and association with adrenal fatigue is very important. Now I have an article on my website called ‘Estrogen Dominance’ as well as another one called ‘Progesterone’ that will be useful for you. If you are inquisitive I have a book called ‘Estrogen Dominance’ that you can read as well, and of course my.
