    Dear Kanaka,
    sorry to hear about your problem. I would suggest that you follow your dr's advise. That is better because she will know about your condition best. If the fibroids are not causing any problem, then it should be ok to wait.
    Lets wait for some expert opinions from our friends too!
    Hope you get to solve this problem soon.

    Hello Kanaka,
    You should see a gynecologist who is doing laproscopy and can remove fibroids.last year i went with my mother to dr.sanjay patel at Mayflower Women's Hospital in ahmedabad and she wasfree from fibroids done laproscopically, without any scar.

    Hi Kanaki,
    I too have fibroids and am too going through peri menopause.
    My docs advice was that the fibroids will shrink with menopause and not to remove them if it didn't cause much trouble. I haven't removed it yet.

    hi,

    My relative is facing this problem for the past four years. but she is nearing 50 now. so as per doctors advice if any severe bleeding or pain persists should remove uterus.....otherwise no need to remove the uterus unnecessarily. because naturally it will shrink after menopause. anyhow check your doctor for the best.

    The vaidyas over on yahoo groups have some treatments: see Yahoo! Groups and related links.

    Hysterectomy should be avoided if possible as retention of even the lesser hormone producing structures is good in menopause. As others have noted, fibroids will reduce after menopause. Periods don't turn off in any set way for anyone and there are lots of starts, stops, and bumps in the road. Mentally rise above it and you will be happier.
