A Malappuram-based homemaker, 46 years old, was diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids. She had been experiencing severe bleeding and unbearable pain during her period for 6 years. She has undergone four normal childbirths. She was having more pain on the second day of her cycle. Her menstrual cycle was regular, but she had heavy bleeding with large multi-clots, and she had been experiencing 3 days of spotting prior to normal flow and flooding on the 3rd and 4th days of the period. The periods were never painful and bled for 4 days previously but last few years periods have become extremely painful with intermittent cramps and bleeding persisted for 7-8 days. She has also experienced unbearable lower back discomfort and a curdy white discharge from her vagina before the onset of her period. These issues affected her daily routine, making her worry about her general health. She consulted a gynaecologist who conducted a thorough examination. The doctor recommended an ultrasound scan that revealed a bulky uterus with intramural fibroids noted in the anterior and posterior myometrium. After consulting with multiple physicians from multiple systems, she visited Sree Subramanya Ayurveda Hospital and underwent treatment for over 9 months. Her lower abdominal pain gradually disappeared and her menstrual cycle returned to normal and showed improvement in her associated complaints.

Uterine fibroids
Uterine fibroids also known as leiomyomas are the most common pelvic tumours. Many are small and asymptomatic. most patients have multiple fibroids. They tend to enlarge during reproductive years and decrease in size after menopause.
Locations of fibroid: Fibroids are located in or on the uterus. Sometimes fibroids may extend up to the uterine cavity.

Based on the location these are classified into 3:
1. Under the outer surface of the uterus (Subserosal fibroid)
2. In the wall of the uterus (Intramural fibroid)
3. Under the inside layer (lining or endometrium) of the uterus (Submucosal fibroid)

· Many are asymptomatic
· Heavy menstrual bleeding (it can be severe enough to cause anaemia)
· Intermenstrual bleeding-bleeding in between periods
· Pain in the pelvic region
· Urinary urgency
· Increased frequency of urine
· Constipation
· Infertility
· During pregnancy it may cause problems during pregnancy like abortion etc.

Do fibroids shrink naturally after menopause?
Uterine fibroids are influenced by hormones like progesterone and oestrogen. When you reach menopause, these hormone levels drop. Consequently, it can naturally decrease and disappear.


Doctors often recommend surgery or other techniques to remove or eliminate fibroids, as they provide definitive relief from associated burdensome symptoms. many studies proved that hysterectomy is associated with a risk of complications like short and long-term morbidity and mortality.

A review of the article showed that hysterectomy may increase the risk of cardiovascular events, certain cancers, depression, bipolar disorders, post-operative infections, osteoporosis and early menopause. On the other hand, Ayurvedic medication, coupled with some lifestyle modifications, can help to shrink uterine fibroids naturally.
