Fibroid tumors consist of fibroid tissues, which are seen in women all through the reproductive years and generally they are reduced in size after menopause. In most cases, these tumors are benign and not life threatening. However, they can cause uncomfortable symptoms, like excessive bleeding during menstruation, irregular menstruation, pain in the lower abdomen etc.
Although some Allopathic medicines may shrink these tumors, most of the times surgery is required to either remove the tumors or the entire uterus. When medicines are taken or the tumors are removed by surgery, there are all chances that they will recur. Removing the uterus is a complicated surgery and may cause severe side effects, like early menopause and may hormonal imbalances. Many times a natural cure for fibroid tumors works better than conventional methods in treating this problem.
