Uterine Fibroids


Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that develop in or on the muscular walls of the uterus. They can vary in size and number, and they are often composed of muscle and fibrous tissue.


The exact cause of uterine fibroids remains unclear, but several factors may contribute to their development. Genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, and a combination of genetic and hormonal factors are believed to be involved. Estrogen and progesterone, female reproductive hormones, play a crucial role in their growth.

Risk Factors:

Several factors can increase the risk of developing uterine fibroids, including:

  • Age: They are more likely to occur in women between the ages of 30 and 40.
  • Family History: A family history of fibroids increases the risk.
  • Hormones: Exposure to estrogen and progesterone, either through hormone replacement therapy or pregnancy, can increase the risk.
  • Race: African American women are more likely to develop fibroids and experience more severe symptoms.
  • Obesity: Being overweight or obese can increase the risk.
  • Diet: A diet high in red meat and low in green vegetables and fruit may be associated with an increased risk.


The severity of fibroid symptoms can vary greatly, and some women may remain asymptomatic. Common symptoms include:

  • Menstrual Changes: Heavy and prolonged periods are common.
  • Pelvic Pain: This can range from dull aches to sharp, intense pain.
  • Frequent Urination: Large fibroids can press against the bladder.
  • Constipation or Difficulty with Bowel Movements: Large fibroids can press against the rectum.
  • Backache or Leg Pains: Pressure on nerves due to large fibroids.
  • Pelvic Pressure: A feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen.

Modern Treatment:

Treatment options for uterine fibroids depend on the severity of symptoms and the desire for fertility. Common approaches include:

  • Medications: Hormonal medications can help control symptoms and shrink fibroids.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: Procedures like uterine artery embolization or myomectomy can remove or shrink fibroids.
  • Hysterectomy: In severe cases or when fertility is not a concern, a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) may be recommended.
  • Endometrial Ablation: This procedure destroys the lining of the uterus and is used for heavy menstrual bleeding.

Ayurvedic Treatment:

Ayurveda, an ancient Indian system of medicine, offers holistic approaches to managing uterine fibroids. These approaches focus on balancing the body and mind. Ayurvedic treatments may include:

  • Dietary Changes: Ayurveda emphasizes a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and avoiding processed foods.
  • Herbal Remedies: Ayurvedic herbs like Shatavari and Ashoka are believed to have a positive impact on uterine health.
