Un myome est une tumeur solide formée de tissu fibreux, raison pour laquelle on le désigne souvent comme une tumeur 'fibrome'. La taille et le nombre des myomes est variable.

Leur croissance est souvent lente, et ils n'entraînent généralement aucun symptôme. Les myomes qui ne provoquent pas de symptômes ne nécessitent pas d'être traités. Environ 25 % des myomes entrainent des symptômes et nécessitent un traitement médical.Les fibromes utérins sont des tumeurs bénignes. Ils peuvent être très nombreux et parfois très volumineux. 
Mais au-delà de ces deux considérations, la décision d'intervenir dépend avant tout des risques de complications. Nous avons interrogé le Dr David Elia*.

What are the treatments for fibroids?

If you want to avoid bleeding periods, the use of the pill, a progestin-releasing implant, or progestin hormones may be a good solution.
However, it will not prevent the fibroid from growing. If you want to prevent a large fibroid from developing in volume, you can cause artificial menopause with drugs that can stop the functioning of the ovaries. As soon as the fibroid no longer receives hormones, it atrophies and decreases in volume.

The problem with this treatment is that it requires monthly or quarterly intramuscular injections, and above all, it is accompanied by menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, vaginal dryness, migraine, insomnia, etc.), which is embarrassing in 45-year-old women for example.

Against this disadvantage, however, a mild compensatory hormonal treatment may be prescribed.

Y a t-il des remèdes naturels pour traiter les fibromes ?

A myoma is a solid tumour made of fibrous tissue, which is why it is often referred to as a 'fibroid' tumour. The size and number of myomas varies. Their growth is often slow, and they usually cause no symptoms. Myomas that do not cause symptoms do not require treatment. About 25% of myomas cause symptoms and require medical treatment.

The growth of myomas can be in the form of a single nodule or group, and their size varies from 1 millimeter to more than 20 centimeters in diameter. Myomas are the most frequently diagnosed tumours in the pelvic region, as well as the leading cause of hysterectomy. Although they are often referred to as tumors, they are not cancerous.

The cause of myomas is not really determined, but most myomas develop in women during their reproductive years. Myomas do not develop until the body begins to produce estrogen. Myomas tend to grow very quickly during pregnancy, during which time the body produces more estrogen. After the onset of menopause, the size of myomas usually stops progressing and may begin to decrease due to the decrease in estrogen.

Fibroids are mostly caused by hormonal imbalances, which means estrogen dominance. This means that you need to balance your hormones with a combination of natural progesterone and herbal therapies. Other side effects of estrogen dominance are: insomnia, high blood pressure, water retention, lack of sexual desire, and weight gain.
