My name is Monica. I started this blog years ago to document my attempt to shrink my fibroids naturally. I tried many things over many years. Some methods seemed to help. Others not so much. But in the end I had to get a hysterectomy and I had to get my ovaries removed. I had surgery in March 2016. Mine was apparently one of the biggest and most gruesome fibroids the surgeons had ever seen. I am now trying to rebuild my life and re-invent myself.
