My stort begins in May 2010 when i had my first sotto pelle insertion. I was 54 and had been suffering for years from menopause but did not want to use HRT.I saw the pamflets advertising sottt pelle. I have to admit i was feeling very good and had a sexual appetite of a teenager, after my second insertion six months later i started having pain and bleeding only to find out that my pre existing fibroids had grown.My general physician referred me to the sotto pelle expert of N. Texas also a surgeon that wanted to do a hysterectomy asap. He was so kind that he was willing to throw in my ovaries for free! I started doing alot of research and deceided that i would try to get these fibroids reduced .I stopped the sotto pelle as estrogen makes fibroids grow and started on an ezyme regime and my orange sized fibroid has reduced by 30 percent in 10 mos and am still in one piece. The moral of this story is buyer beware! Hope this can help someone.
