Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us with your question.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years.

Has your gynecologist suggested surgery?

Many women with uterine fibroids experience no signs or symptoms, or only mildly annoying signs and symptoms that they can live with. If that's the case for you, watchful waiting could be the best option.

Uterine fibroids usually grow slowly, or not at all, and tend to shrink after menopause, when levels of reproductive hormones drop.

There are a variety of treatment options ranging from medication to MRI-guided focused ultrasound surgery to uterine artery embolization.
