Whatever route you take – whether it’s natural or with a doctor – be an advocate for yourself. Speak up. Don’t suffer in silence. Let your medical practitioner or wellness coach know what’s really going on with you, and then do your research based on the feedback you receive.

My Story Deserves to Be Heard

Story shared by: Nehawa

Fibroids were really, really traumatic to experience even after the myomectomy surgery. There were challenges including depression, recovery and pain. Fibroids really affected my life in so many ways, but I’m grateful to be where I am right now and to share my story.

You Deserve all Your Options

Do not give up and be your own advocate for alternative treatment options. When a doctor tells you a hysterectomy is your only choice, you should refuse to accept that. Do your own research and make your voice heard. You deserve all of your options rather than just the standard traditional hysterectomy. Do not let anyone talk you into that choice unless that is what you want. That is what almost happened to me.

We Need to Speak Up

Story shared by: Dearra

It is very difficult to find information on fibroids. There are no support systems or platforms at all. It was frustrating because you feel alone as you’re going through this. A lot of the time, I didn’t know anyone around me who had fibroids, until I told them about my story and started the dialogue about it. So, sometimes we need to speak up and let people know. It’s tough, but you’re not alone in this.

Heal Through Bonding with Survivors

Story shared by: Keona

27 years old. 3 kids. 1 full year of no cycle and 1 full year of bleeding. 4 blood transfusions. Numerous visits to doctors. I have no uterus due to a massive uterine fibroid. I am not bleeding any more, but I really wish I could have one more child. I wish I knew more women my age who have had a hysterectomy. I want to be able to relate to women who have been in my situation and have healed and moved on from the loss of their uterus.
