    I have been experiencing low back pain,

    bladder pressure and when I lay on my back it's worse. When I have my periods they are very heavy and my body feels inflamed. My Gyno had a CT Scan done and they found fibroids. Now he wants to do an ultra sound. I would just like the bladder pressure to go away.

    I Am Not My Fibroid

    I didn't have a clue what was going on with my treacherous body until my dear sister in Christ stopped me in the foyer at our building and said "You have fibroids. I know because I had them; I had the same symptoms when I was younger." Turns out she was right. My old doctor had...

    An Alternative Treatment for Fibroids Your Gynecologist Won't Tell You About

    When my gynecologist suspected that I had fibroids and that I would need a hysterectomy at some point, I started fainting. I'm that way. The thought of being cut open makes me woozy and I start going down. After the nurse put a cold cloth on my head and some juice I started...
