Uterine Fibroids Vs Bulky Uterus

Uterine fibroids, also known as leiomyomas or myomas, are benign (non-cancerous) growths that form in the muscular wall of the uterus. These tumours are composed of smooth muscle cells and can range from very small to quite large.

They often don’t cause any symptoms, although they can be associated with painful menstrual cramps and heavy bleeding. Uterine fibroids may also put a woman at risk for preterm labour and miscarriage.

A bulky uterus occurs when the uterus is enlarged due to the presence of many small fibroids or one larger one. This condition is typically diagnosed through a pelvic examination performed by a gynaecologist.

Ultrasound imaging is usually done to confirm the diagnosis and to determine the size of the uterus.

Risk Factors for Uterine Fibroids & Bulky Uterus

The exact cause of uterine fibroids is unknown, but there are certain risk factors that can increase a woman’s chances of developing this condition.

These include:

age (women over 35 are more likely to develop fibroids); race (African-American women have an increased risk); genetics (a family history of fibroids may be present); lifestyle factors such as obesity, alcohol use, smoking, and lack of physical activity; environmental exposure to pollutants; and hormonal imbalances or exposure to hormones in food or medications.

Diagnosis & Treatment

Your gynaecologist can diagnose a bulky uterus or uterine fibroids through a pelvic examination and an ultrasound.

If you have symptoms, blood tests may be done to rule out other conditions with similar symptoms such as endometriosis or ovarian cysts.

Treatment options for a bulky uterus or uterine fibroids include medication, hormone therapy, uterine artery embolization (UAE), laparoscopic myomectomy (surgical removal of the tumors), and hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus).

How to Reduce Bulky Uterus or Fibroids Naturally?

Although there is no cure for either condition, lifestyle changes can help manage symptoms and reduce the size of fibroids.

These include:

eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; avoiding processed foods and excessive sugar; exercising regularly; reducing stress through yoga or meditation; getting enough sleep each night; and quitting smoking.

Additionally, some supplements such as vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, curcumin (a compound found in turmeric), green tea extract, and soy products may also be helpful in reducing bulky uterus or uterine fibroids naturally.

Managing Uterine Fibroids & Bulky Uterus

The most important factor in managing your condition is to stay informed about your treatment options and make sure that you understand what each one entails.

Other tips for managing your condition include: eating a healthy diet that is high in fruits and vegetables; getting regular exercise; quitting smoking; avoiding alcohol consumption; reducing stress levels; and maintaining a healthy weight.
