It will depend on several factors such as the size of uterine fibroids, number of uterine fibroids and the individual body’s response to Homeopathic medicines.
Some very effective Homeopathic medicines for treating uterine fibroids are Thlaspi Bursa Pastoris, Sabina Officinalis and Fraxinus Americana.
Thlaspi Bursa Pastoris is indicated where menses are copious, frequent and prolonged.
Sabina Officinalis will serve well for uterine fibroids where the menses are bright red, profuse and contain clots.
Where uterine fibroids develop in the anterior part of the uterus, they put pressure on the urinary bladder and lead to frequent urination.
There are three types of uterine fibroids – subserosal fibroids, sub mucosal fibroids and intramural fibroids. Uterine fibroids mainly affect women around the age of 30–40 years. The exact cause of uterine fibroids is not yet known though a woman with a positive family history of uterine fibroids is at a higher risk.
Appearance of uterine fibroids during childbearing age suggests that female hormones estrogen and progesterone play a key role in their formation.
Obesity is another factor that puts women at a higher risk of developing uterine fibroids. When uterine fibroids are large, they cause symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, painful periods, prolonged periods, frequent periods, pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, frequent urination, constipation and painful defecation (passing stool).
An ultrasound of the pelvis helps diagnose uterine fibroids.
