INTRODUCING FIBROID FIGHTERS

Together We Can

FIBROID EPIDEMIC: THE CRISIS

Every 10 minutes, 12 hysterectomies are performed in the United States. Even more astonishing, up to nine of them did not meet the guidelines set for a hysterectomy- rendering those procedures medically unnecessary. Due to the fact that patients are not always made aware of other options, up to 60 percent of these surgeries are performed for the treatment of Uterine Fibroids. Thankfully, there are non-surgical , effective solutions that alleviates debilitating symptoms, while also preserving a woman’s reproductive system and fertility.
