Dreams of becoming Fibroid free in 2014

Want to be Fibroid Free in 2014

I won’t make any declarations because some things might be out of my control; but my wish is to become fibroid free in 2014. I’ve already said I don’t think that can happen without a hysterectomy, or if my fibroids are small enough at this stage, undergoing a uterine fibroid embolization procedure.

Maybe natural remedies for shrinking fibroids really do work for other people who are out there claiming they got rid of their fibroids naturally; but I have been trying one remedy or another for several years and nothing has really worked. Some things have helped to make my stomach look a little smaller; but I continue to walk around with a stomach that gives me a pregnant appearance.

Last night I had the most wonderful dream. My fibroids disappeared. The dream was pretty convoluted. I mean, seriously disturbingly weird in many aspects; but at one stage it was the most wonderful dream ever because I was lying down in bed and I reached down to touch my stomach and discovered that my stomach was completely devoid of fibroids. It was flatter than any stomach is capable of being in reality. When I think about it, not only were the fibroids gone, so were all of my insides. That of course would not be the ideal situation. Some of the things in my stomach I need; but the fibroids being gone, that I can live with and would love. It’s too bad it’s not possible for fibroids to just up and disappear the same way they just appeared out of nowhere.

Not to have fibroids isn’t something a person needs to wish and hope upon like an impossible dream. I could have gotten rid of my fibroids back in 2007. I think it was 2007. I’m now getting things mixed up and not remembering what year it was when I first had the opportunity to get the hysterectomy; but I believe it was in 2007. I qualified for assistance getting the surgery under a vocational rehabilitation program; but I chickened out. I couldn’t go through with it. I got scared. I decided to try natural remedies for shrinking fibroids instead of getting my uterus removed to fix the problem.

Now it’s 2014. I wish I had been successful with my efforts at shrinking my fibroids naturally; but I have not been successful. And it occurs to me that I need to accept that none of the natural remedies for shrinking fibroids are going to work for me. It doesn’t mean they can’t work for someone else. I don’t want to believe that all the people who are out there claiming they were able to shrink their fibroids using natural remedies are being dishonest or otherwise misleading. I have to believe that it’s just one of those things where some people have success and others don’t; and unfortunately for me I am not one of those who had success. It’s not that things just completely didn’t work. I’d have to say that my situation was greatly improved; but the bottom line is, I still have the fibroids and my fibroids are still fairly large even if not as large as before.

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.


  1. Have you considered getting a myomectomy? I am 50 for the past several years doctors have told me to get a hysterectomy. I continued to research and found a doctor that would do a myomectomy. My fibroids make me look about 6-7 months pregnant. I am 5’7 and weight 145 and I am a size 8 pants due to fibroids. I have also tried everything without success. Summer of 2013 I started having periods that wouldn’t stop. I also know people that have had hysterectomy’s (full and partial) Friends who have had the full are no longer interested in sex. Two of them actually got a divorce . The others who had partials state that sex in not the same and the desire has changed for them. Instead of 1 or 2 per week they have sex about once a month. Go to the HER.com site. Try to also find some positive stories on line about”Great Sex” After a hysterectomy. I found very few positive sex stories after a hysterectomy. My friends who have had a hysterectomy ages range between about 35 and 53. My husband and I are very sexually active and enjoy it a lot and I do not want to risk what my friends are telling me to be true.

  2. @maxbic63, thanks for the comment. I have not given too much thought to a myomectomy as I figured since my fibroids are too large for any of the non-invasive myomectomy prodecures (the ones that don’t require them to cut you open), if I’m going to get cut open the same way as with a hysterectomy, since they say fibroids can come back after a myomectomy, I might as well do the hysterectomy.

    I definitely do have concerns about the impact of a hysterectomy on a woman’s libido. It is already quite frustrating to be dealing with loss of interest which I assume is caused by the fibroids. I would hate to be even less interested in sex than I have been so thanks for mentioning that aspect. I’ll definitely try to find more information on that as I try to figure out how best to finally get rid of these things.

  3. Have you tried a heavy metal detox? Fibroids are associated with elevated cadmium levels: http://holyhormones.com/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2010/03/HEAVY-METALS-AND-FERTILITY1.pdf

    Try detoxing with near infrared sauna’s, bentonite clay, psyllium & diatomaceous earth, chlorella and cilantro. There’s also an active detox probiotic called ProAlive by Ascended Health that scavenges toxins and improves liver and kidney function. It can’t hurt to try and at the very least you should improve your hormone metabolism. Acupuncture is also worth a try if you can afford it

  4. the other two things that may be helpful are reishi mushrooms which inhibit tumour growth and serrapeptase which is an enzyme that dissolves fibrin
